Paranormal Cops: Season 1Close
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this reality series -- in which a group of Chicago police officers spend their evenings investigating alleged paranormal incidents -- has all the creepy components that viewers have come to expect from this kind of show. And it takes the drama a step further by connecting the featured ghostly encounters with Chicago's historic criminal underworld. Discussions about violent deaths and criminal activity are frequent, and there are occasionally images of people who've been shot. Expect some "bleeped" swear words ("f--k," "s--t"), cigar smoking, and talk of demons and the devil. Teens who enjoy a good scare may find the series eerily fun, but it's too intense for young kids.
