TV Show • 2001 • Drama  

Report
A darkly comic look at members of a dysfunctional L.A. family that run a funeral business.  When death is your business, what is your life? For the Fisher family, the world outside of their family-owned funeral home continues to be at least as challenging as--and far less predictable than--the one inside.

Some of Keith's behavior can be interpreted this way, and it's mentioned that he was abused as a child (not shown). His behavior improves but could be triggering for some.

One man is hit over the head with a frying pan by his wife. One woman is mistreated by her husband for years and she breaks down at the sight of his body. Keith and David have a pretty hot and cold relationship that sometimes gets violent.

There are many situations in which the characters see or interacting with their dead father or with other dead people. They are not ghosts per se but perhaps "a presence" they use to reflect on their own lives.

Season 2, Episode 1: bad vomit at the intro when a girl ODs.
Season 2, Episode 13: around the 47 minute mark, right after David and Keith have a fight and end up on the floor, look away. On-screen vomit at the scene change. Comes from out of nowhere.
Season 3, episode 3: around 18 minutes in, when David and Keith walk into the outdoor pool
Season 4, episode 12: nate and rico explain how a guy died to his “emergency contact” - just look away

Brenda’s brother Billy has Bipolar disorder and is shown/said to be violent and dangerous because of his disorder. He self-harms and attempts to attack Brenda with a knife when having a manic episode. There are references to him building a bomb in the past. His Bipolar disorder is used throughout the show to portray him as violent and dangerous. It’s quite a horrific representation of the disorder.

There is use of homophobic slurs in multiple episodes.

A gay man who is murdered in a hate crime in the opening scene sparks the central storyline in episode 12 “A Private Life”. It is a very upsetting scene/episode and David keeps seeing the murdered young man for the rest of the season.

One scene describes the life of Temple Grandin in a pretty off-color and inaccurate light. They also poke quite a bit of fun at a recurring character, Arthur, who is autistic coded.
