Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Outlander is an intense period drama based on a popular series of romance novels and features frequent, graphic sex. Expect bared body parts, moaning, thrusting, and discussion of infidelity. The series takes place in a historical wartime setting with plentiful battlefield scenes and very gory injuries, with squirting blood, internal organs, and soldiers screaming in pain. Mild curses are infrequent, but a character frequently utters "Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ," which some might find offensive.

Sexual Content

Sex is frequent and quite explicit with breasts and buttocks bared, thrusting, moaning, and oral sex graphically implied. A woman marries two men, due to time-travel factors.


Infrequent but gory scenes of injury and surgery, including squirting blood, internal organs, and a man screaming in pain. Battles are frequent and frightening; weapons including guns, swords, clubs, and knives are used.


Infrequent cursing: "hell," "damn." A woman frequently utters the oath "Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ."

Social Behavior

Battle and bloodshed are frequent on the show, as is romance, which sends a message that love is inextricably mixed with drama. Chivalry, liberty, and love of country is frequently championed, but these ends are usually accomplished through violent means.


The series is based on a book series, which viewers may want to read after watching the show.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters frequently drink and refer to being drunk; this all happens in a historical setting.
