Scary excellence

I know what other parents are thinking: how does a show with a graphic explosion earn TV-14? I was thinking the same thing. However, I sat in with my daughter to watch the second episode and have to admit this show is way less violent than people perceive it to be. The main issue is it being to scary (there are some chilling scenes), but it never goes full out graphic violent like Hannibal or The Following. Definitely doesn't deserve a 16 label.

Non-Violent Crime show alternative

Parents need to know that this show, despite the 16 rating by common sense media, has very little violence. The most graphic scene is an explosion that takes place from a far distance, in the first episode. Otherwise, violence is restricted to regular fighting common in almost every show, and occasionally shots are fired. This is way less violent than shows like CSI, and that is why I give it a 7 on review.
