VIOLENT.

Violence is huge here. I probably should not be watching this show, but I like it and my mom lets me. If blood scares you, don't watch a single second of this.

And okay show... Bloody but good for teens.

The blacklist is basicly about the worlds most wanted man captured and he helps the FBI search for other villains for freedom. The blacklist isn't gory but is pretty bloody. Plus there is shootings,stagings,and screaming in pain and even once in a while torture. Bullet holes are noticeable and blood comes out but isn't from an up close distance. Language is moderate with words like dam-,hell,as-,and bit-h. Plus exclamations of "Oh my god!" And "Jesus". Even in the beginning of the show it warns you about the violont content and viewers be advised. Out of all this is a crime drama that is okay and is good for younger teens 14+ on this one. Violonce: 4 and a half/5 Language: 2/5 Positive role models: 1/5 Everything else is 0/5 Thanks.

Great but gory

I've been watching this show on Netflix and I can say that it is very, very good. The acting is decent and the storylines for each criminal (as well as the plot for the whole show) are very well written. Alas, it can be very gory and even a little disturbing and hard to watch at times. In the beginning of each episode there is a clip about the criminal the episode is based on, and a few of them are a little disturbing. So far in season one "The Good Samaritan" is probably the worst. He is a serial killer who goes after abusers, but doesn't fully kill them so first-responders can get there first, yet what he does to his victims is a little unique. Don't be fooled its not as bad as something like Silence of the Lambs where the serial killers are extremely gruesome, but I think that the writers and directors can put into TV-14. So basically: great show, appropriate for mature teens and tweens who can handle gore.

It is not what it seems to be

Apparently is a violence-action series, but I rather say it is mostly a series full of dark-humor; kills are ruthlessly, sadistic, and explicit; so a non-mature kid is most likely to see this series and become untouchable to others suffering; this series is the representation of the American society, so these kind of hidden messages they will not understand.

There are a couple of rude words, but nothing major like the f word. There is quite a lot of violence but it is not gory

Really good crime drama

The only think wrong with this show is that there is some violence and some swearing. I really enjoy this show

Brilliant and entertaining crime show is extremely violent and disturbing.

This incredibly and shockingly brutal and violent TV show resolving around a young woman named Lizzie who is invited to a special FBI task force that works with a criminal and murderer named Raymond Reddington who actually gives the FBI a list of criminals and murderers that do horrible things, and it's the task forces job to kill and capture these horrible people, and specifically asked Liz to come in to the FBI and help him. Suddenly, things get complicated, she wonders if the life of her husband Tom is really what he says it is, the life of her father is also confusing, and many other weird things start to reveal or happen, but you'll have to watch to find them all out. Violence 5/5: Strong, graphic and brutal criminal and murder gangster violence. Many characters and innocent bystanders are shot, stabbed, impaled, executed, bashed, beaten, or commit suicide, much involved with gore and extremely bloody wounds and blood splattering everywhere. Gory and graphic sequences and episodes include some of the following: A woman's head being blown up as blood splatters on glass as her brains are blown out. A man being executed point blank with blood splattering. A man being tortured in a bloody and disgusting way. A man will blood streaming down him and his guts and leg bones are shown. A woman dying while being pregnant as blood splattering down her leg. A woman dying and throwing up by being very sick. Many gangster, fighting, gory scenes with shooting and much more, mostly very intense and very gory/brutal. Gory and extremely brutal wounds. Shocking, disturbing crime photos are seen. Sexual content 4/5: A few, very graphic and steamy sex scenes featuring the sides of breasts, bottoms, and infrequently, pubic hair as well as moaning, thrusting, and removing of clothes. A couple make out and have sex frequently. Graphic sex scene in season three with a man spreading a woman's legs, thrusting, rubbing her breasts, and removing her panties. A few same-sex couples, kissing, and implied sex. Lots of implied sex. Partial nudity including breasts. Sexual references. Language 4/5: Frequent, strong language includes a few uses of "f--k" "s--t" "d--k" "bitch" "a--hole" "c--k" and "p---y." A few other crude and inappropriate references and other language. Drugs and drinking 4/5: A few characters have drug and drinking problems in a few episodes, and in many episodes they show characters smoking, drinking, and even smoking crystal meth. A few episodes are related to drugs. This TV show is entertaining, brilliant, and addictive, but hard R, graphic, and much.. much.. much more. My rating:R for strong and bloody brutal violence throughout, language, and sexuality/nudity.
