Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Betrayal is a dramatic series that isn't meant for kids, thanks to mature themes such as infidelity and murder. It also includes regular sexual situations, including images of couples showing a lot of skin (but no actual private parts) while engaging in sexual activity. Guns and bloody wounds are visible, and on occasional words like "ass" are audible. Drinking (wine, cocktails) is frequently shown during meals and social functions.
Is It Any Good?
Thanks to the flawed -- but somewhat likable -- ensemble cast, Betrayal offers enough compelling narratives to create a knotty soap opera world in which (not surprisingly) infidelity, murder, and mystery are central themes. Also adding to the show's appeal are some titillating moments designed to push the edge of suitable content for prime-time network television.
Despite the edgy content, the show is a bit bland thanks to its failure to offer characters and stories that are particularly unique or clever. It's enough to satisfy folks looking for a simple guilty pleasure, but for those looking for a more interesting and sophisticated drama, Betrayal will simply be forgettable.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
