Show Summary
The Watcher was an anthology program in a similar vein as the old Alfred Hitchcock Presents and the Tales from the Crypt. The program's only recurring character is "the Watcher," played by rap star Sir Mix-A-Lot, an all-seeing purveyor of moralistic messages who is able to view all the goings-on of Las Vegas via security monitors throughout the city. Mix-A-Lot serves as a host and commentator for the several tales of depravity and human weakness that he presents in each episode, which typically includes such vices as murder, drug abuse and other sordid affairs.

There is violence in every episode of The Watcher and it is often grisly and gruesome. The transgressors, who are always condemned by the Watcher, are often duly punished in a horrible fashion. The show has a very dark feel to it as we gain an intimate perspective into the sordid aspects of human nature.

Despite the heavy consequences incurred by characters in every episode, the grim undertone, sometimes graphic violence, chronically violent themes and high likelihood of a young audience due to the popularity of the show's host, all combine to raise occasional concerns about the violence featured in The Watcher.
