Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality series features a psychic medium who claims to speak to the dead. The show includes occasional references to violent deaths, as well as very brief and subtle mentions of sexual intimacy. Apple computers are prominently visible. The overall series is pretty mild, but it may be disturbing to viewers who are uncomfortable with the idea of death and psychic ability.
Is It Any Good?
The likable Caputo views her abilities as a God-given gift that should be used to help people. As such, much of the show focuses on her readings, as well as the positive reactions of her clients and friends.
It's pretty mild, and folks who like this sort of thing will find the quirky normalcy of this family to be entertaining. The voyeuristic nature of the personal readings will only add to this. Skeptics will surely reject what is being shown here, but it's still full of positive messages about family, love, and acceptance.
