Sex & Nudity

  • A sex scene takes place on top of a bed, nothing really shown but moaning and dildos being picked up from under the bed.
  • No nudity. Characters are shown having sex and touching themselves. Moaning is heard. In some scenes, the actions are explicitly described in the background. One scene included sex toys but actual scene was not shown.
  • Almost every episode contains brief lovemaking scenes including cuddling, moaning and kissing, no nudity shown though. Only bare shoulders and backs are visible.
  • Season 3 is by far the most sexual season, with the most amount and graphicness of these scenes.
  • Difficult noticiable but from distance a naked woman Is seen in a window only bare butt Is seen
  • Some sex scenes contain loud bangs against beds

Violence & Gore

  • A man is hit with a mallet. The impact is heard and blood is seen. A little shocking and unexpected.
  • A woman is hit over the head and knocked out. She lies there in a pool of blood.
  • In Season 3, a character is hit over the head with a rolling pin (attack not shown, but the camera shows blood spatter). It is revealed later in the episode that the character survives the attack.
  • In season 3 a woman's sleeve slips up revealing scars on her arm, which we can assume to be self-harm scars
  • There is yelling through out the show.


  • Multiple uses for shit and its variations.
  • Many f-words...Every main character drops the f-bomb several times in every episode.
  • Constant use of the F Bomb. In season 2 in particular its commonly just about every other word, casually used. Also "God" is used.
  • The F-word gets more frequent each season.
  • Few uses of "cunt"

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Characters are shown drinking all the time including drinking to excess
  • A scene where MDMA is taken.
  • Two characters have overdosed on medication.
  • Drug and alcohol use is quite frequent in season 1, including overdoses.
  • A whole episode has the main character getting high on acid graphically
  • A man snorts drugs in the backround
  • Constant illegal drug use in season 2. Alcohol is common through out. Marijuana is used a season 1 and 2.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Premise of show is very dark and potentially triggering.
  • The show tackles many violent themes such as domestic violence, murders, gender based violence, attempted sexual violence/violations, suicide and serial killings.
  • Deaths in the show are often sudden, unpredictable, shocking, and upsetting with a swift action of violence (axe, knife, gun, blunt object) with bloody aftermath. Camera work is stylized to not directly show the murders (some are off-screen or implied) for most scenes. There are some intense moments, though, where we see the character die and the action that caused it.
  • Rated R for strong sexual content, strong bloody violence and strong language
