I absolutely LOVE this show! While it is not particularly violent, i do think that older viewers will understand more of the show. For me the one of the best parts of the show is all the amazing information you get about the brain and the psychiatric disorders which i think many young children will not understand. So while it is not inappropriate for younger viewers, I would wait to show children this show until they are a bit older so that they may fully understand and learn from this show.

Amazing

Me and my 11 year old daughter have been watching this and we love it. It's really, I suppose you could say smart. It's not as gory as some of the other detective shows. Not saying you should let your 5 year old watch it, mature tweens.
