It depends on your children

I have seven kids,four boys three girls ranging from 20 to 7. And like my title says it really depends on your individual kid. I have a 16 year old son who is very impressionable and this show because of the violence and demonic scenes would not respond well. He also has a hard time separating reality from fiction. On the other hand I have a 14 year old daughter who I watched this show with and she is very mature(much like her mum lol ) and we have talked to her about sex and drugs and violence and she is the type of kid who works things out logically. To me this show could be better acted but I read a comment that this show is sexist because the nuns follow male leaders and bow before them or something of that nature and I find that statement to be false or they just didn’t watch this show very attentively. The reason my daughter loves this show is because the young women in the show do not just question the authority of the men in charge but rise up together and fight against it. The main character Ava has the attitude that suits a girl her age in her situation. And I found that if we gave the character and the show a chance it becomes worth it. Also I would like to comment on another review where they mentioned being able to see the shadow of a male “member” during a very quick sex scene and it is in fact the hound mans belt not his privates. The sex scene is very brief and in fact I’ve seen worse on regular television. That’s just my humble opinion. Anyway ..I guess the common sense here is to know your kid and if you don’t know or your not sure then don’t let them watch this or watch it with them.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much swearing
age 16+

Not for kids

I don't think common sense media reviewers have watched the full season. It's demonic so scary for kids and there's also a sex scene. Ava is kissing her male friend/boyfriend in the ferry - which they are hiding in - and she zips down his pants and I swear you see the shadow of his male part ready to enter. I was shocked, this was really inappropriate scene. If it wasn't for this scene 13 or 14 year old could watch this. It should be rated 16.
