Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this gloomy science fiction series about alien visitation can be very scary and violent (and the premise itself may be unsettling for some). Viewers see dead bodies surrounded by pools of blood, a man being shot several times in the chest, a person being pursued by an ax-wielding former friend, a bloody severed hand, and so on. Characters have spooky dreams about being chased by something unknown but ominous. In one episode, a character is seen drinking and being surrounded by scantily clad strippers. Several characters use rough language.
- Sexual Content
- One scene shows a character surrounded by barely clad strippers. The same character sometimes flirts in a semi-sleazy way.
- Dead bodies in pools of blood. Graphic scenes of tortured men. Severed hand. Extended scene of a man being shot in the chest.
- Solme rough language -- like "screw," "bastard," "bitching," and "crap" -- though it never gets extreme.
- Social Behavior
- The main characters are mostly good people, though one is a drinking womanizer. All are working for the benefit of the human race. One character was good but since his alien encounter has turned scary.
