Contains nudity and sex scenes

The CSM review is obviously based either on just one or two episodes or on a censored TV version. Watching the DVDs, it contains nudity, sex scenes, and F-words, as well as fairly gruesome bloodshed.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Blade isn't for the squeamish, and it's definitely not for younger viewers. There's plenty of blood, a good amount of gore, and lots of fight scenes. But the violence serves to advance the plot and really isn't the main focus of the show -- that honor falls to Blade's constant identity struggle and ongoing mission to save the oblivious humans from the lurking vampire underworld.

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.
