Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this conspiracy thriller has all the elements of an exciting suspense yarn -- including high-stress chase scenes, shootouts, secret government agencies, and unexplainable events. Expect flirting, kissing, and regular social drinking (sometimes to the point of tipsiness), as well as some intense action scenes and weapons use that might be too violent for younger viewers. Even viewers who are old enough to handle the content may be challenged by the plot, which jumps around in time and presents plenty of conflict without many explanations.

Sexual Content

Heavy flirting, with some embracing and kissing.


Characters draw their guns in tense situations and sometimes end up in intense firefights. Some people are shot to death, and bodies are later shown in pools of blood. The show seems to race from one intense scene of conflict to another, with lots of amped-up stress. Even when there's no fighting, it seems to loom heavily over the moment.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Not everything is what it seems in this thriller, when new friends might have a hidden agenda and even trusted family members might be involved in a conspiracy. And the government certainly can't be trusted to tell the whole truth, though that might be because there are some shadowy agencies that answer to no master and won't even tell the president the full story.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Regular social drinking, plus a few scenes in which people drink more heavily at bars (including downing shots) and later seem quite tipsy.
