Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this highly stylized murder mystery series is lighter than most. You'll see people get strangled, shot, and rise from the dead, but the tone is more campy than creepy. Even with occasional blood and gory wounds, chances are most viewers won't be left cringing. Other intense moments are abrupt surprises, like when a kid's dog is hit by a truck. But relief -- in the form of comedy or happier type of surprise -- tends to follow quickly, negating the initial shock. A chaste romance is central to the show; though there's some sexual innuendo and tension, the pair literally can't touch each other, so they can't get up to too many shenanigans.

Sexual Content

One character comes on strong to another. Chaste romance is central to the story.


Strong violence is mitigated by tone/comedy -- such as strangulations with plastic bags bearing a smiley face. Death and interactions with corpses are standard features, but the show isn't primarily a graphic crime procedural. Some moments are abrupt and shocking, as when a child's dog is hit by a truck.


Occasional use of words like "bitch" and "hell."

Social Behavior

The main characters are well-intentioned, ethical people, but the central story/concept (i.e. Ned's ability to revive -- and re-kill -- the dead) brings up moral questions. Some peripheral characters are bad (like the murderers).
