Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this sci-fi series revolves around time travel and the idea that a visitor from the future can return to alter history. Each episode is set in a different time and place and features a new ensemble cast (aside from the two stars), which might make it difficult for younger kids to follow. The ever-changing storylines often tackle mature topics, including extramarital relationships, unplanned pregnancy, and murder, just to name a few. Despite a bit of iffy content, this show is a thoughtful, engrossing adventure that older tweens and young tweens will love.
Kissing and mild groping scenes, as well as some suggestive language and insinuating looks. Al is an oversexed single guy who comments on women's figures and talks about his need to "get some."
Depending on the episode's plot, the show may include gunfire or fistfights.
Infrequent uses of very mild words like "hell."
Sam's goal in each episode is to right a wrong done in the past, and he strives for honesty and treats everyone he meets with respect. His upstanding nature helps counteract Al, who can come across as a tad sleazy and sex-obsessed.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Most episodes show characters smoking, as Sam's travels take him through the 1950s, '60s and '70s, when it was more prevalent in public places. Scenes set in social situations also include alcohol, but only adults partake.
