if you're sensitive to drug use related triggers, I'd be very careful watching this show. it's a large central part of the main character and others and drugs are featured in I believe every episode I've seen so far, and I'm up to s2e3

(Minor spoiler) S1E1, about 24 mins in: A man yells and lifts a small dog in the air by his leash because the dog won’t pee, dog is clearly distressed. The interaction is interrupted by Elliot who notices this. Later in the episode, Elliot threatens to blackmail the man because he is cheating on his wife with Elliots psychiatrist, who he is fond of. He then asks for his dog, Flipper, who becomes a series regular.

This is an ongoing theme throughout the show, but specific episode warnings are:
S1E1 child pornography is mentioned but not shown;
S4E1 a character is revealed to have assaulted a minor (this is shown in a video that other characters are watching);
S4E7 the episode revolves around a character realising they were sexually abused as a child, but none of this is shown on screen

psychological torture that i do remember, multiple different episodes and situations. and arguably other kinds too. there may or may not be actual instances of other types. honestly if there are i likely dissociated and wouldnt be sure anyway, since i have a dissociative disorder from extensive trauma as a child. theres BDSM themes and such & being a survivor of childhood s**ual assault with those themes i am never sure when thats consensual and when it isnt. In short, yes. I cant say for sure how much, when, what exact types besides psychological at least twice. im sorry thats all i got

there is a scene about midway through s1e7 where two characters are in a disagreement and one puts a gun to the other's head and suddenly shouts "bang!" to scare them and make them think they've been killed, which I would put in the jumpscare category due to the volume and suddenness. you'll know it's coming when one character begins talking about how crazy they are and knocks stuff off of a table

not clowns necessarily, but a character does wear an exaggerated mask, which could be similar to triggers surrounding clowns. the mask looks somewhat like a more comedic "V for Vendetta" mask, and appears more than once during videos the characters watch on screen.

Tyrell, a married man, cheats on his wife with a man (it is important to note that this is both a part of a plan and not out of desire to cheat, as well as seemingly not really a problem with his wife), and attempt multiple times to seduce the wife of his enemy (same things could be said once again). Along with that, he shows (what most interpret as) heavy romantic interest in the main character to the point of exclaiming his love for him on multiple occasions. I would way this is up in the air

I would say season 1 has the most graphic sex scenes, it ends up calming down a bit into season 2, only having 2 brief ones and 1 pretty bad one for the rest of the show. Most are really short and bearable, but do NOT watch this show with children.

there are sex scenes in which characters are naked or are shown afterwards lying naked in bed, or simply lying in bed wearing only underwear

It's up to who's watching, but i did personally cry for the first time at a show because of the ending, i would say it depends on how you see it. More melancholic than anything

The show takes place in NYC so quite a lot of honking. There is tire screeches but the most noteworthy is probably 2.4, in which ALF runs over a man

Nothing is shown, but some characters are underground when it is strongly implied a nuclear explosion has gone off.

Episode 2.3 has a mass shooting (comes out of nowhere).
