Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this post-apocalyptic science fiction drama doesn't skimp on the violence. In the premiere episode alone, one character is beat into a coma, from which she later dies, while another character threatens to shoot others at point-blank range. Besides these bursts of violence, the plotline advances too slowly to interest most younger viewers, and broods upon issues such as deception, inner conspiracies, and unknown dangers -- haunting topics for most children.
