Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this "gothic comic miniseries" from Canadian sketch comedy group Kids in the Hall was designed to make adults laugh with its mature (and sometimes morbid) humor. As the title suggests, death and murder are part of the plot, and there's some mid-level violence (with visible blood) that's played for laughs, along with a few scenes involving alcohol and characters who drink to excess and do drugs. Thanks to the show's late-night time slot, you'll also hear some unbleeped language (including "s--t," "prick," and "bitch") and see some characters in sexual situations, although there isn't any nudity.
Some bed-hopping and implied sex, but no nudity. In one scene, a reporter has semen on her shirt; there's also a "town abortionist," etc.
Some midlevel violence and morbid humor that occasionally involves blood. Some characters carry weapons (guns, scythes, knives, etc.). At least one person is murdered, but it's played for laughs.
Unbleeped language includes "s--t," "hell," "bitch," "bastard," "ho," and "prick."
The show isn't intended to have any take-aways other than laughter. Suspicion and dishonestly are common themes, but there's also an overarching sense of obvious silliness.
Drugs / Tobacco /
A few characters drink to excess and occasionally drive drunk. Others try to freebase hand sanitizer and snort a drug-like substance that looks like cocaine.
