Season 3, episode 2. In the first five minutes, there’s footage of disemboweled and dismembered gorillas. Cuts back and forth between the footage and the main characters’ reactions until the opening credits begin.

Season 3, episode 5, around the fifteen-minute mark. Flashback showing a child operating and performing surgery on dead/decapitated cats. Lasts less than a minute.

A woman is upset and annoyed with caring for a gerbil so she flushes it while it’s still alive. (Around 45-50 min in.)

ETA S1E2: The hamster’s body is discovered as a clog in and shown onscreen, then the incident is discussed throughout the episode.

Yes, and at one point, a character asks for plastic surgery while in prison because he is being assaulted, and his abusers threaten to kill him without it.

Many people get plastic surgery because they hate something about their bodies. Breast implants, nose jobs and liposuction are all performed. One female character hates that she is plus-sized.

The most common procedure in the show is liposuction. Sometimes the surgeons say some mean and insensitive things about their patients’ weight.

The two main characters are plastic surgeons, so yes. Pretty much everyone they meet is sexually objectified. They treat women like objects.
