Parents need to know that Bates Motel's violent content isn't constant, but when you see it, it's intense -- and it's an integral part of the main characters' lives. Violent visuals include stabbings, rape, and torture, with some blood (although it isn't overly gory) and several scenes depicting violence against women. There's also some sexual tension between teens, many of whom drink underage at parties and use illegal drugs like pot. Language is generally light, with characters using words like "damn," "hell," and "ass."
