My 8 year old son watches this every day and it’s pretty gory and bloody but the language is not too bad

Too much violence

Background music

The plots are all bases in the same idea. Something in the life of the criminal triggers the crime and the subsequent capture or in most of the episodes, the dead of the perpetrator by the FBI agents. The music is horrible, the drum beat is most of the times unbearable. Like so many shows now, they gave to include a gay relationship in the mix

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (4 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

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.
