Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • A neutral character being hit in the chest by a thrown axe in "Gold Rush",
  • A villain accidentally running himself through with his own saber in "The Golden Triangle",
  • Another neutral character opening a door and receiving an axe to the chest in "Deadly Dreams", with a flashback to this event in "A Lesson in Evil", and possibly others. Be sure to preview episodes before showing them to young children, especially those with a potentially violent premise.
  • The character Murdoc is frequently assumed throughout the series to have met his end via fiery explosions, cliffs, vats of a boiling and flaming liquid, and an off-screen firing squad. Every time, he either returns with increasingly visible facial scars (resetting via plastic surgery at one point) or the characters and audience being informed that his body was not recovered at the location of his supposed death.

Profanity

  • Mild cursing. Hell and damn are said. Approximately 0-2 swears per episode.
