The fact that two mentally unwell fugitives, one of whom committed A LOT of murder, had a child at all is basically abuse. Barry and Sally both constantly lie to their son, isolate him, and keep him from having a normal life. Their poor decisions also put the boy in mortal danger.

Somewhat. In season 2, Sally’s abusive ex-boyfriend exhibits somewhat stalkerish behavior towards her, flying to her hometown, calling her incessantly, and forcing her to come to his hotel room.

1.-Sally used to have be in an abusive relationship, and she discusses this during season 2 un detail.

2.- Barry is emotionally and mentally unstable, which drives him to have violent lashes of anger that are very scary and realistic. The worst case of this is his behaviour thowards Sally on season three, which mirrors Sally's former abusive relationship.

Sally also mimics a very harsh teaching technique, verbally abusing a student in the same way Cousineau did to her. The students call her out on it.

In s3 e5, a character offers to (and describes in detail how he would) gaslight another character, including breaking into her house to take pictures of her while sleeping and "replacing her dog with a slightly different dog," in an attempt to make her completely break down.

In S4E5, a main character has a son who he intentionally isolates from everybody else his age. He shows him videos of kids dying and being injured in baseball accidents in order to scare him out of playing with the other kids. In S4E6, a child is drugged with alcohol.

Various drug-dealing mobs are involved in the plot, but we almost never see drugs actually being used. A very minor character smokes a joint in S2 E5. Besides that, it's really just drinks and cigarettes.

No, but in season 1, episode 2, there is a scene where they talk about the movie "Doubt" with meryl streep. There are mentions of child mol*st*tion, and barry makes a joke about how he would "love to play a child m*lester." Later on in the episode there is a scene where they are practicing before the service for Ryan, and the word is mentioned a few times again, and Barry talks about how he thought the movie would be "funny like family guy ."

The filing scene was the first time I've ever been bothered by tooth damage in fiction. It's absolutely horrendous, even though you don't see the teeth at all. The SOUND and the sight of the huge file going in and out of the mouth are... YIKES! It took me some time to shake it off.

As a once or twice off joke it is very briefly mentioned that one of the other actors in Barry's theatre group has a "stomach issue" that is hinted to be some form of disordered eating. The imagery or jokes aren't that triggering but there are audible sounds of him and others pretending to vomit or discussing vomit if that messes you up.

A gay character is killed in S4E4. The act is not shown on screen, but the aftermath is seen from afar. The scene leading up to his death is extremely intense and upsetting. Another gay character is killed in S4E8. The act is not shown, but the character is shown dying on screen rather upsettingly.

The only straight-up sex scenes are a video shown on a computer in the first episode and porn shown on a TV in the sixth episode. Both scenes are graphic but brief. Otherwise, there are lots of sexual references and some scenes that take place right before or after.

At the very end of S1Ep6, a car barreling down a dirt road is shot, causing it to flip before cutting to the credits. In S1Ep7, this is shown from the outside, the car flipping multiple times before ending up on its side on the side of the road. In S2Ep2, a character gets into a car, which is shot from the back. As they try to avoid the gunfire, they crash into a parked car. They are dazed but mildly injured and are able to leave the car.
