Sex & Nudity

  • Since the central issue is sexual misconduct, there is some amount of sexual talk (including a few references to oral sex). Accusers recall their experience, a couple "talks dirty" to each other, and a couple are seen in bed together, etc. Nothing overly graphic so far.
  • A couple is seen kissing in a couple of episodes.
  • After Bradley gets off the phone at the bar, she and a bartender are shown having sex (no nudity, but there is thrusting and sounds) for 10 seconds.
  • Couple seen very close in bed. No nudity but sex implied and some kissing.
  • A woman gets sexually assaulted. It's very explicit but no nudity.

Violence & Gore

  • A character brutally smashes a television with a fire iron.
  • Corpse shown.
  • A woman is sexually assaulted.
  • Fist fight and physical tussle between two male characters (one of whom winds up with a black eye).


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Wine and other liquors are shown and consumed frequently- a few characters are shown or hinted to have a drinking problem. Adderall is taken and there's an OD scene.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are some long pause moments to add to the intensity of some dialogues.
  • A woman gets sexually assaulted, and discussion of sexual assault and power imbalance and manipulation in sexual relationships is brought up very frequently.
  • The titular show-within-a-show covers some very upsetting topics, including the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting and 2018 California wildfires.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • A couple is seen in bed. The girl wears a bra, the guy is naked (we can only see his upper body and part of his thigh since they are covered in blanket). They kiss passionately. Sex is implied.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One character struggles with substance abuse and is shown preparing to snort what is either cocaine or crushed Adderall.
  • A woman fatally OD's. The event itself is not shown, but the aftermath is (namely, other characters discovering her corpse the following morning, with an empty prescription pill container and a bottle that clearly used to contain an alcoholic beverage visable nearby).

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • One person fatally overdoses with pills (it's left ambiguous as to whether it was intentional or not) but the act isn't shown (her dead body, however, IS).
