Likeable Show, For the Most Part

I liked a lot of the shows, reminded me of The Twilight Zone. However, this show had some shocking scenes, in the episode called "Bits of Love", female nudity was displayed often, I didn't like it. Also, there is a lot of violence in the TV show. Viewer discretion advised.

This title has:

Too much violence

Nudity and sex in DVD and international version

The rating given this show by Common Sense Media is for the syndicated version of this series. Parents need to know that the version available on DVD and aired outside the US has sex scenes and nudity that is not included in the syndicated version circulating in the US. The show itself is fine, though the sex scenes are generally gratuitous and date back to an era (which some may argue is still ongoing) where sex was added to cable shows just because they could get away with it on cable; the scenes aren't as explicit as you'll see on today's cable shows but they can still get pretty raunchy. Please note that the original version of the series from the 1960s is spooky and occasionally violent but contains no major objectionable material. And I consider it far superior to the remake. Try to catch it if you can, especially if your kids enjoy Twilight Zone.
