Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Revolution is set in a post-apocalyptic future in which technology, traditional government, and law enforcement no longer exist. As a result, viewers will see some intensely violent scenes involving weapons of every sort and some blood linked to deaths and injuries. Characters use words like "bitch" and "hell" and make mild allusions to sexual relationships, but there isn't much to see on-screen. Some characters drink alcohol, too, and one of the main characters has a tendency toward alcoholism. For teens old enough to handle the violence, this could be a good watch-together series.

Sexual Content

Mild innuendo, with allusions to characters having sexual relationships, etc.


Intense violence involves guns, crossbows, swords, and hand-to-hand combat. Injuries are often bloody; characters die. Lots of threats; characters are captured and held against their will.


Sparing use of words like "hell," "bitch," etc.

Social Behavior

The world at large is ruled by fear and distrust, making family relationships more important than ever. Sticking together promotes safety and strength.


Some logos and brand names are visible (Google, etc.), but they're mainly used for historical context.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some characters drink alcohol; others abuse it.
