Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this supernaturally tinged crime drama contains fantasy elements (wizards, ghostly creatures, magical spells, etc.) that could be scary to younger viewers. There's some violence, both realistic and fantasy -- such as a bad guy punching the main character repeatedly, drawing blood. Other minor adult elements include the main character waking up in bed with a woman, brief kissing scenes, and a quick look at a woman in her underwear. Brief glimpses of creepy, mildly gruesome elements (like a skinless corpse) occur semi-regularly.

Sexual Content

Adult dating. Scenes in bed with minor kissing, some underwear glimpes. Minor sexual innuendo.


Realistic and fantasy violence like punching and kicking. Brief gruesome scenes -- like a skinless corpse. The show deals with all kinds of crimes, including murder.


"Hell" and "damn."

Social Behavior
