Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this remake of the 1960s televison series deals in psychological tension. While there is some actual violence, it's usually more passive (i.e., a character is hit by a car) than hostile. The truly scary part of the series occurs inside viewers' minds when creepy scenarios meet supernatural elements, like mind reading, life after death, and imaginary creatures. Each episode effectively serves as a mini morality tale, so parents may want to be prepared to discuss their views on the episodes' subjects. Expect some mild language ("bastard," "jackass") and some occasional drinking.
