What is The Imperfects about?
The sci-fi series follows three young adults (Abbi, Juan, and Tilda) who are turned into monsters after undergoing unethical experimental gene therapy by a mad scientist. Joined by Dr. Sydney Burke, the trio decides to band together to hunt and take down the scientist responsible for their transformation and force him to make them human again.
It is rated TV-MA, meaning it’s meant to be watched by mature audiences only. It may not be appropriate for audiences ages 17 and under. It was given a TV-MA age rating for strong language, graphic violence, blood, and suicide. There will also be plenty of intense, frightening scenes with scary-looking creatures. Overall, we wouldn’t recommend watching this show with kids around.
