Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Proof is a dramatic TV series about life after death, science, and relationships. There are lots of bloody wounds and surgeries, as well as shootings, car accidents, and other violent events. Sexuality and infidelity are themes. The show pushes the envelope with some strong language (including the occasional "s--t") and contains references to drinking and teen pot smoking. Apple products are prominently shown. Older teens should be able to handle it, but its focus on death may make it tough viewing for younger or more sensitive viewers.
Is It Any Good?
Executive-produced by The Closer's Kyra Sedgwick, Proof is an appealing show that raise questions about the way people understand dying, post-death experiences, and the presence of the deceased from the beyond. It also weaves in lots of interpersonal and relationship tension, which helps keep things interesting.
Fans of the paranormal will appreciate the show's themes, many of which support the idea that there's life beyond the grave. But it also offers enough scientific explanation and logical resolutions through medical intervention to satisfy any doubters who tune in. Regardless of what your own thoughts are on what happens after we die, the show offers enough entertainment to keep both believers and skeptics happy.
Did we miss something on diversity?
