The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that FBI: Most Wanted is a crime procedural spin-off about a team of federal agents tasked with tracking down criminals wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Gun violence is frequent, which often results in bloody bullet wounds and deaths. The use and sale of prescription and illegal drugs is sometimes visible, and in one episode someone is shown overdosing. There’s some sexual innuendo, and some occasional strong language including “hell,” “bitch,” and “damn."

What's the story?
FBI: MOST WANTED, a spinoff series of Dick Wolf’s FBI, follows the fictional FBI’s Fugitive Task Force. Under the leadership of Federal Agent Jess LaCroix (Julian McMahon), Agents Clinton Skye (Nathaniel Arcand), Hana Gibson (Keisha Castle-Hughes), Kenny Crosby (Kellan Lutz), and Sheryll Barnes (Roxy Sternberg) are out on the field, and often working undercover, to successfully hunt down the dangerous individuals on Federal Bureau of Investigation's Most Wanted list.
Is it any good?
The entertaining, but predictable, crime procedural features all the elements of the Dick Wolf franchise, including lots of dialogue, dramatic captures, and a few explosive moments. Law & Order and FBI fans will appreciate the sense of familiarity created by this well-known formula, but the overall result is a series that produces few surprises. Nonetheless, the cat-and-mouse games between the fugitives and the Task Force are easy to settle into, and the hints at the individual cast members’ personal struggles add some interest. Ultimately, FBI: Most Wanted is worth tuning into if you like this sort of thing.
