S2 Ep1 - at about 3:55 a man breaks another man's thumbs. You do see the thumbs post-breaking. Then at the very end of the episode (around 48 minutes), the same man breaks another man's fingers. It's pretty easy to see coming and you don't miss any crucial information by skipping it. You again see the thumbs post-breaking, and it is graphic.

Episode 5 at the birthday party around 19:30 Jesse chugs a bunch of beer and then exclaims that he's going to throw up, so you have a warning right before he does.

Episode 7 LOOK AWAY NO LATER THAN THE 18:40 mark. it comes fast and is graphic AF. Judy is sitting in her dressing room and gazes off and then Gideon immediately gets sick in the toilet

Season 2, Episode 1 at the 12 minute mark the guy jumps off the balcony to attempt suicide and an onlooker barfs

Season 2, Episode 7 at the very beginning, as soon as they all walk out of the emergency room, LOOK AWAY & MUTE! GRAPHIC AF!!!!

There is a decent amount of sexual content in this series. There is A LOT of full frontal male nudity. Like... a TON. The character of Judy is very sexual in the way she speaks about her fetishes and needs. Oral sex is shown at one point. The blackmail video that is shown multiple times is also very sexual in nature, the final time it’s seen there is full on sex.

There is a lot of blood throughout the series, mostly from people being shot or beaten up badly.
A prominent moment of gore is after a character is shot in the head in episode 7, brain is seen falling out in a shot shortly after.
