Parents need to know that Wednesday is an edgy, darkly comic drama series centered around Wednesday Addams, a character who's appeared in different Addams Family movies and TV shows. Here, Wednesday (Jenna Ortega) is involved in a mystery with real deaths -- in one instance, there are images of a victim's severed and bloody head, limbs, and torso scattered in the woods. She's also dangerous to those around her: For example, she unleashes bags full of piranhas in a school swimming pool. But the show definitely still has comic touches, and Wednesday herself is sometimes sympathetic, particularly when she's protecting others from bullying behavior. Violence is the biggest issue in the series, with dead bodies, supernatural powers and battles, injuries, sudden deaths, and frequent mortal danger. Scary imagery includes shadowy woods, black candles burning, and characters with unusual physical characteristics (vampires, werewolves, etc.). Characters flirt and kiss, and a long-married couple kiss passionately while making sexual noises. Language includes "s--t," "hell," and "goddamn," as well as insulting language like "freak." Storylines dealing with school dramas feel clichéd, with thinly drawn characters and "in" groups and "out" groups that play into stereotypes.
