Not for any viewers, but especially not younger audiences

I've been very disappointed in MANY ABC shows lately and The Unusuals isn't any exception. The stories generally have great potential to be fun and interesting but the language, violence and adult content makes the show WAY too much for viewers. Definitely would not allow younger viewers to watch and would exercise caution for any viewer.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
