Violence & Gore

- In episode 2, a graphic shooting takes place with visible blood and some gore. The worst is that we see a blood spurt out of the back of a character's head when shot. We later see the character's face and a small bloody hole in their forehead. This scene is repeated as a flashback in multiple episodes.
