Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Terminal List is a military-centered action thriller starring Chris Pratt (Jurassic World). It has lots of violence, ranging from people being shot and killed during a military operation (blood and wounds are visible), to brutal physical attacks using guns and knives. It also contains lots of cursing, including "s--t" and "f--k," and there's some drinking.
Is It Any Good?
This dark, often muddled series presents a story that becomes more complex with every turn. Viewers are presented with sometimes-contradictory flashbacks as Reece attempts to recall what happened during his ill-fated mission, which sometimes makes it harder to understand what is happening in real time. But despite the creative storytelling, The Terminal List is yet another tale about military brass and wealthy corporations putting their interests ahead of U.S. soldiers. There's enough fire power and violence to keep action fans entertained, but the themes that drive the series aren't particularly inspired.
