Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this dark sci-fi drama can be very scary at times, sometimes depicting monsters, deformed humans, disturbing scenarios, and violent acts. The show's mythology centers on government conspiracy, cover-ups, and the possibility of alien abductions. Younger viewers may be frightened by the possibility of abduction and scared by the often-graphic images of slimy creatures and the constant, tension-building entrances into dark holes, pits, and sewers.

Sexual Content

Some sexual tension between main characters, and some episodes deal with sexuality on a variety of levels (an alien shape-shifts from male to female after having sex, for example) while others don't address it at all. Rare allusions to unusual sexual practices, such as inbreeding.


Most episodes have scary elements, some with gruesome creatures and behavior. Some episodes include strong violence, including stabbings, gunfights, and physical violence -- some very graphic.


Mild profanity, such as "damn," "hell," and "ass."

Social Behavior

The show deals with a vast conspiracy of lies and cover-ups and alludes to the real-life corruptibility of government. Scully and Mulder often break the law to get the information they're looking for. However, the partners treat each other with care and kindness even if they often disagree.
