Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Season 1
Parents need to know that while even grade-schoolers may be drawn to the high school setting, humor, and fun horror movie aspects of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, this hugely popular vampire series' dark, mature themes aren't a good fit for younger kids. Violence increases in intensity over the seasons, with characters frequently being killed, and main characters are involved in sexual acts and scenarios. There's drinking, smoking, and allusion to drugs, as well as occasional language including "ass," "piss," and "bitch" and slurs like "spaz" and "slut." Adult themes also include abusive relationships, the loss of loved ones, and the portrayal of depression (though it's left unnamed). The series encourages female empowerment, mentoring, and teamwork. There are positive LGBTQ+ role models and storylines, but racial diversity is sorely lacking, and Black characters are portrayed stereotypically. The show is best for teens and adults, who will appreciate the multilayered story and the Romeo and Juliet subtext of some of the episodes.
