Parent of a 4, 12, 13, and 18+-year-oldWritten byTiffanyKWMOctober 5, 2010
Okay if you're watching with your teen
My thirteen year old daughter began tuning into this old series after watching an episode with her dad. I watched a few prior to letting her continue to view them. My main concern was that they're pretty violent. There always seems to be a murder, gunshot wound, etc. It's sometimes peppered with a bit of colorful language, but I wasn't overly offended. It's very much a futuristic sci-fi show and that's the sole reason I've given it the go-ahead, despite the violence. It's not remotely realistic and I think a teen can easily discern that. Thankfully there were only a few seasons made!
This is way too violent for 8 pm, but it's basically true to the spirit of the movies. Yes, this ignores the 3rd movie, but this is time travel. This can be a continuously changing reality.
I would have liked to see more of a connection with the movies character-wise. Sarah's boyfriend looks like the bad guy in T2 (also in the xfiles). Why not get the real actor? What's he doing these days? Why not get the Sarah from T2?
