I began watching this show the night it aired, and have watched every episode since. It's my new favorite show! I am a "sheltered" kid but my sister and I have found no reason to turn off the show. The only pause for younger children would be the violence as there is quite a bit. The worst I can think of at the moment is a man getting knives driven through his hands and the use of magic to strangle a person. However, most of the violence takes place in the form of sword fights (with little blood), fist fights, etc. Overall, this is an exciting and enjoyable show you can watch with your whole family.
