In the Season 3 episode “Home alone,” Jay’s dog, who is seen several times throughout the episode, is put down offscreen. This upsets Jay and is one of the very few times he actually cries on the show.

It’s implied in the movie that Carly is well aware of Simon’s crush and was just stringing him along and taking advantage of him the whole time.

Simon’s driving tests instructor touches Simon inappropriately by sexually rubbing him on the shoulder and his leg. There’s then a timeskip to after the test with Will’s narration saying “Simon never did tell us exactly what happened during his driving test” heavily implying that she sexually assaulted him.

SEASON 1 EPISODE 2 - Simon vomits on a kid Carly is babysitting. It’s graphic so maybe avoid the episode. The scene is also shown at the start of s1 ep1 and a couple episodes after it happens, so be cautious!

SEASON 3 EPISODE 2 - Tara vomits graphically before making out with Simon and then continues to make out with him anyway, you can also see the vomit on her mouth after she does it.

SEASON 3 EPISODE 4 - After leaving uni, the boys are all in the car and Jay vomits into a bag, you can see and hear the vomit and he does it twice.

SEASON 3 EPISODE 6 - After sneaking into carly’s house drunk, the next morning Simon is bent over the toilet and while it may seem like he is going to vomit at first, he only spits. Then after his dad talks to him, he actually vomits into the toilet but you don’t see any vomit, can only hear it. Then, at the end of the episode when the boys are in the tent, Neil vomits on Will’s head and him, Simon and Jay graphically vomit all over each other. I’d avoid this episode!

They all repeatedly do obscene gestures. For example, Jay waves at an old woman on the bus. When she looks at him and waves back, he changes his wave into the middle finger and the “wanker” gesture.

Frequent Uses of “s****ic” and “r****d.” S****ic is used to describe a disabled person twice in S1E2. “Gay” and “bent” are used as insults to describe things as lame or uncool. A running joke involves characters calling Neil’s dad gay which Neil gets defensive over. Whether this is true or not is never explicitly confirmed. A French exchange student randomly states that he “hates arabs” with zero prompting. Jay says that all French people are weird. Will insults, mocks and swears at a group of people for getting to the front of a rollercoaster, not realising they have Down Syndrome until he sits next to them and feels ashamed for what he said. The Down Syndrome kids get revenge by vandalising Simon’s car.

Almost all of Jay’s dialogue are sexist comments or graphic descriptions of sex or masturbation. Will has sex (any genitalia is covered) with a girl but does so very improperly, played for laughs. Simon’s p***s can be seen in a sock in the first episode of Season 2. Jay Masturbates in a retirement home, the act itself is hidden but s***n can be seen on his hand shortly after. A running joke involves several characters saying Will’a mum is hot and they would like to have sex with her.

POTENTIAL SPOILER WARNING!!

SEASON 2, EPISODE 1: Simon falls into some water and nearly suffers from hypothermia. In order to avoid hypothermia, all of his clothing is removed. he has a sock covering his d*ck, but other than that, he’s visably naked.

SEASON 1, EPSIODE 3: Neil is wearing a monkey costume, however when he takes it off, we discover that he is totally naked underneath his costume. his arse is shown on camera but his genitals are not.

SEASON 3, EPISODE 1: Simon participates in a fashion show, however as he is on the runway, his testicle is hanging out of his tight underpants. the testicle is real and it is shown on camera.

these are all i can remember. apologies if i missed any!
