Sex & Nudity

The first season has numerous discussions about sex, getting laid, etc. It's not out of line with the story and characters, mainly comments in the dialog. There are several episodes where a couple is shown in bed, usually involving a person getting out of bed wearing skimpy or thin clothing, but no nudity is shown. Examples of these:

S1 E1: Pilot - several discussions about sex (not getting it for a while, "she will have sex with you", why are you c#@k blocking me, etc.). a scene where a couple is passionately kissing and it implies they are going to have sex.

Episode 103: Paper, Denim, Dollars: A man is in bed with a woman. He gets out of bed in a hurry. He is naked and it appears that you can see penis (shadowed) for half a second. This scene is very short and cuts away after he gets out of bed.

S1 E4: Unhappy Birthday - a man wakes up a woman who is in bed by playing music. He is in his briefs and she is under the covers. He climbs into bed with her and goes under the covers when she answers the phone. After that it is implied the are going to have sex. no nudity.

Episode 105: Big In Japan: A man randomly kisses a woman and a man when he's in a club with his girlfriend. He was on ecstasy.

S1 E6: Good Vintage - a woman wakes up and gets out of bed wearing panties and a thin tank top. outline of breasts an nipples are shown but no actual nudity.

Season 2: Actually contains Nudity. Non- graphic but nudity non the less.

Violence & Gore

Discussions of violence, but very little actual violence. For example ... S1 E1: Pilot - several references to breaking someones arm, throwing someone out a window, etc.


Most episodes have some profanity, including use of several f-words per episode. There are also references to male and female anatomy, sometimes used in derogatory ways. The use is not out of line with the characters and scenes - for example, when at work they don't use profanity and it when it is used it is in line with the plot and story and not just for the sake of saying it.

Characters drink and smoke. Most episodes have at least one scene in a bar, at a party, or a some other event where drinking occurs. The main character is constantly "quitting smoking" and smokes occasionally in some of the episodes - often after drinking. A few episodes show a joint being smoked.

S1 E4: Unhappy Birthday - two women are shown smoking a joint. There is a dinner at a restaurant with drinking. 4 guys go to a club and are shown drinking shots. etc.

Episode 105, Big In Japan: A man and a woman use ecstasy.

S1 E7: two men are caught smoking pot by a parole officer. The actual smoking is not shown.
