Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this remake of the same-named 1980s miniseries centers on the arrival of a group of alien Visitors who claim to have only the best of intentions but actually have a hidden agenda. As their real goals become clear, a resistance movement starts fighting back -- so you can expect some fighting (sometimes intense, with small explosives, knives, etc.), as well as minor swearing and some suggestions of human-alien romance. Various forms of torture are also implied. Several main characters are placed in situations where they must make tough choices -- to stand up for what's right or to abandon their principles and sell out the human race for personal gain.
Some heavy flirting and suggestions of human-alien romance. Occasional make-out scenes and images of partially clad (bras, underwear) humans and aliens.
Some intense fight scenes involving small explosives, crowbars, fists, knives, guns, and other objects of mayhem that leave some characters with deep slash wounds...or dead. Some implied torture, to both human and alien characters. Some deaths are sudden and violent.
Some swearing, such as "dumbass," "my God," and "fricking."
Despite the fact that the show revolves around invasion and oppression, the series demonstrates why it's important to judge people not by what they say, but by what they do.
