Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that that the miniseries The Witches of Oz, which imports the characters of the beloved Wizard of Oz tales to modern-day New York, has some intense fantasy fight sequences that might be too much for young kids. On the positive side, Dorothy is a loyal friend and fights to protect her loved ones.

Sexual Content

A woman tries to pick up a man at a bar. An actress envisions Dorothy as a sexy 11-year-old in a tank top and motorcycle jacket. Some of the witches wear low-cut, revealing outfits.

Violence

Some scary special effects (close-ups of evil-looking villains with scars, etc.). A head sits on a dresser, able to move and make facial expressions. Creatures are pulverized with a laser-like weapon. A woman slaps a man at a bar. A man robs a woman and then tries to kidnap her. Some intense fight sequences during the finale.

Language

Infrequent use of words including "damn."

Social Behavior

The main message is that once you discover your purpose, it's best to step up to the plate and fulfill it with grace and commitment. Sometimes, bad influences will try to sway you from your mission, but you must stick to your goal and be aware of your enemies.

Consumerism

Name┬┐dropping of brands like Ferragamo and Armani. A Pepsi can is visible.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking -- cocktails like martinis, for example -- in bars.
