Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the series' main villains are a rather unsavory species called the Goa'uld, snake-like parasites that burrow into victims, take over their mind, and then use their body as an unwilling host. The process can be scary for young children to watch, and the concept of being taken over by a Goa'uld can be even more disturbing. Note: Two different version of the pilot are available -- one which includes full frontal female nudity.
No explicit sexual scenes or nudity, though some alien cultures have relatively racy outfits. Note: Two different version of the pilot are available -- one which includes full frontal female nudity.
Rather mild combat scenes against aliens; few fights involve much visible bloodshed. The Goa'ulds' takeover process can be a bit scary to watch.
The Stargate project is run by the military, and the crew tends to follow orders. Disobedience is not unheard of -- for example, when a gutsy character decides to follow a hunch. Such choices make for dramatic cliffhangers and, because they almost invariably turn out to be correct, are usually praised by superiors. The evil aliens are rather one-dimensional in their desire to rule the galaxy and are easy to root against.
