Great for slightly older kids- Slightly more mature romance

Even though the stuff is harmless for most ages, I wouldn’t recommend it to younger children as there are some dark and slightly scary scenes. Violence is mild and no blood is shown but people do shout is pain when they get hit so it may frighten sensitive viewers. It gets quite dark as the seasons go on and one of the villains impales someone with a axe when they criticise the villains style of work. No gore is shown. Romance- mild flirting that will go over most kids heads but older viewers will likely notice. One of the characters tries multiple times to flirt with a girl but ultimately fails. Two characters share longer kisses and are in a dating status. Characters are good role models and the dragons aren’t scary but in one episode, the dragons are possessed by creatures and take on a scarier form- I advise looking at this episode before letting kids watch it (called Grim retreat)
