Lifeless

The show is a story that slowly spins out of control. I won't spoil the ending for the person who wants to watch it after this review, but keep in mind their is a steady smearing of faith and all intimate relationships fall apart. There is a twist, but overall the mission takes the forefront, and relationships fail. The upside to it was that the previous reviews were correct about it not being dark or crude. There is still profanity, shirtless scenes, blood, ect, but the tone doesn't stoop to such a primal level. Finally, thank you Commonsense Media. I'm grateful for this resource

Good, but....

This is well-written and interesting. But by season 3, expect much more violence, the f-bomb every other word (writers seem to get less creative) and more in the bedroom department. Bedroom activity, while not showing great detail, is definitely there. It is glorified between 2 unmarried people and seems "okay" because they are in love. One night stands. In one episode, I was nearly ill. A serial killer vomits an eyeball. Unrealistic, but still a gross concept. Way more blood. Blood splatter is shown frequently coming from the backs of heads, for instance. In the beginning of the show, the gore was more about medical procedures. Seemingly, as with all shows, sex, gore and language must sell. So many shows go downhill so fast. The upside is that there is a lot of self-sacrifice and lots of love toward others and the world around them.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
