Mighty Girl in Distress
Aside from a little bit of language and a lot of violence, there's nothing obviously concerning here. We didn't watch this first season with our 14-year-old daughter because it was rated TV-MA, but our caution proved unnecessary. We're going to let her watch it on her own. We certainly don't mind her hearing the F-word a few times, and she's inured to this kind of staged violence. My main critique of the story so far, aside from a couple of things the characters do without any remotely logical motivation, is that the central character is neither centered enough nor actively enough engaged in her own plot. She has her moments, to be sure; but the writers tend to let her drift from one situation to the next before using her skills as a highly effective hand-to-hand combat warrior. Along the way, there are several surprisingly tender moments, especially between Hanna and her first friend. There is darkness here, but it does not overwhelm the rest.
