Season 5 episode 5, right in the opening scene, there is a huge tarantula in the desert. A kid picks it up and puts it in a jar. It is shown again in the last shot of the episode (shortly after a shooting). Also shown briefly in the next episode after the shooter gets a warning from Mike.

Season 2 episode 10 there is a scene where a character lets his 16 year old son have a shot. After his son is finished he keeps pouring up until the son gets sick. He is aggressive towards other characters who try to calm him down/get him to stop. A friend who grew up with an abusive/alcoholic father found this scene very upsetting.

For two episodes of season 1, a character is restrained by a bike lock around his neck that locks around a pole behind him. He is unable to move his head forward at all. In “Buyout”, a character is zip-tied to a radiator at the wrist and left alone. He quickly escapes. Nearing the end of season 5, a character is kept in an underground cage chained at the wrists and ankles. When he is out of the cage, there is a chain from his back to the ceiling that only allows him to walk back and forth.

Several minor characters have "meth mouth" - extremely eroded/damaged and discolored teeth from meth addiction. Tuco's grill after it is encased in the glass cube could count too. In 5x01, detectives discuss teeth "popping" due to high temperatures.

Subjective, it’s not in every episode, but where there’s gore it’s generally pretty intense. One of the first plot points in Season 1 is disposing of a mostly dissolved corpse, flesh and blood and bone are seen. There is a particularly notable scene in 4x01 where a man cuts another man’s throat with a box cutter; the wound is shown and there is a LOT of blood.

It is definitely mentioned that body parts fall into peoples’ yards though they people don’t fall TO their deaths, they’re already dead because of the plane explosions. Worth saying anyways.

The son of the main characters has cerebral palsy, and there are scenes of him being addressed as such by bullies and antagonists. One more intense example is a group of boys mocking him in a store but (spoilers) the main bully gets his ass beat. Characters generally react negatively to the slurs use.

no real clown but towards the end of the show. Probably in season 5. In the intro scene of an episode Skyler packs a clown statue. It's very short, very brief, and hardly sees anything, but I prefer to warn you just in case. I will try to find in which epsiode it was.

From Tumblr ALL Breaking Bad warnings a masterpost of masterposts! what a concept! BEWARE OF SPOILERS Breaking Bad: Season 1 Warnings it should first be said that this show is not for people who are bothered by really violent or disturbing content. however, there’s not too much v* so it’s easy to avoid if that’s all you’re worried about! possible spoilers ahead~ episode 1- walter coughs throughout. at the beginning, after coming out of the trailer, the coughing is particularly intense. this may be triggering. towards the end, after telling jesse what happened in the trailer, walter bends over and v*s violently. you can’t see it, but you see him bending over and you hear it very clearly for quite a few seconds episodes 2 through 5 are safe aside from coughing (and subject matter that involves really gruesome images and such) episode 6- when walter is teaching toward the beginning, he tells them to work on their stuff alone and then leaves the room to v*. I tabbed out and took my earphones out, but I think it’s shown a bit and heard quite violently. after walt’s second chemo scene, about 19 minutes in, he is paying with a check and goes to the bathroom to v*. I think it’s pretty much just like the last one episode 7 is safe Breaking Bad: Season 2 Warnings just like I said last time- a very intense and often gory show. possible spoilers ahead. Episodes 1 through 4 are safe. There’s always coughing of course, but the only notably triggering moment is in episode 4 when jesse makes it back inside the trailer and begins coughing intensely. It seems as if he’ll v* but he doesn’t. Toward the beginning of episode 5, about 7 minutes in when Walt gets out of bed to count the money, he goes to the bathroom and gets sick. The toilet clogs and he spends a little bit cleaning up, so the scene ends up being about a minute and a half. Just tab out and take our your earphones/mute it. Episode 8 is safe, minus the usual coughing. Also, Hank has a couple panic attacks in this episode, which might seem like he’s going to throw up, but he doesn’t. Episode 9 is technically safe, but at the beginning Walt leaves the waiting room and has a particularly bad coughing spell in the bathroom. He is coughing violently and leaning somewhat over the toilet, but he doesn’t v*. It still may be triggering. In Episode 10, around 15 minutes in, Walt Jr. is sick into the pool. He starts to cough after taking a drink at about 14 minutes. I stopped watching/listening so I don’t really know how much is shown, but a previous anon said it’s pretty graphic. I would honestly skip that whole scene where they’re outside drinking. Stop watching when Walt pours out Walt Jr.’s ice. The scene ends at 16 minutes. Episode 11 is safe. Episode 12 is safe up until the end. When Walt goes into Jesse’s apartment, Jane ends up v*ing quite a bit. I didn’t watch because I knew something was coming, but it sounds horrible because she's choking. You should probably just skip the entire scene. It’s the last scene of the episode. Episode 13 is safe. Breaking Bad: Season 3 Warnings same disclaimer for violence and intensity as the previous seasons Episodes 1 through 4 are safe. In episode 5, about 3 minutes in, Jesse is leaving the strip club with his friends, and Skinny v*s outside as he’s walking away. As soon as you see they’re leaving the club, tab out and mute. Episodes 6 through 13 are safe. Breaking Bad: Season 4 Warnings violence and intensity, spoilers, etc etc you know the deal~ Episode 1 is technically safe, but there is a VERY gruesome death towards the end. I usually don’t mention these, but since I’m hardly bothered by gore and this one affected me, I thought it was worth mentioning. Also, witnessing it causes Walter to look like he’s going to be sick. Episodes 2 through 9 are safe. When Gus goes to the bathroom in episode 10, he sets a towel down in front of the toilet and makes himself v*. It’s obvious it’s coming because he kneels in front of the toilet and sticks his two fingers toward his mouth. I’m not sure if you see v* but you see him leaning over and hear the sounds. Episodes 11 through 13 are safe. Breaking Bad: Season 5 warnings Episodes 1 through 8 are safe. In episode 9, when the Whites are eating dinner, around 33 minutes in, Walt runs to the bathroom and leans over the toilet. I honestly don’t know if he v*s at first because I saw it coming on the little netflix preview screen, and when the scene came I tabbed out and listened to it at a low volume. It doesn’t sound like he v*s but I know he turns the water on. However, after he notices his book is gone, he makes a gagging sound and leans over. Nothing is shown. Episodes 10 through 16 are safe.

A major character is with the DEA and is frequently pretty flippant with his power, but the show treats it as such and never glorifies it. Cops are the enemy for most of the cast.

Yeah, this show has a lot of sexual content. There's probably ten minutes of old people smashing which is pretty awkward. In Episode one, there's a very brief comical scene where a nude woman throws stuff out of a window. There's just random s*x scenes throughout the show. Episode seven's first few minutes take place in a strip club, nudity is obviously very present. Throughout the entire show there's nudity but it's usually not as vulgar, Walter's ass is exposed a few times for comical effect, etc. It's still a somewhat present element throughout the show. If you're offended by nudity, you might want to consider skimming a few minutes in this show. The sexual scenes don't have any plot points anyway.
