In Season 2 episode 11, 2 mallard ducks are shot to death as well as a bald eagle which is then prepared to be eaten. It’s pretty gruesome.

on what i think is the last episode of season 2, (spoiler by the way) monica slits her wrists in the kitchen during a family dinner and blood is squirting out- she doesn’t die and is taken to a hospital i’m pretty sure.

Yes, in season 8 episode 11, Debbie has a welding accent where a heavy pipe falls on her foot. She needs a surgery, but it's too expensive, so she tries to do it herself and passes out in the process. While she's unconscious, Frank walks in and does it for her, cauterizing the wound with a cigarette lighter.

watching for the first time and seeing as theres no time stamps i’ll write down whatever i don’t manage to skip in time season 1: -episode 9 when frank and a woman wake up after the woman starts crying she throws up into frank’s lap season 2: -episode 5: this whole episode frank has a vomit stain on his shirt, it’s not graphic but knowing that it was intended to be vomit made me a little uneasy. towards the end of the episode little hank says he thinks he’s going to be sick but he doesn’t actually throw up. at the very end of the episode as music is playing and lip is walking away a man vomits from what i saw fairly graphic but i tried to look away before seeing anything season 3: -episode 2: debbie tells fiona steve/jimmy is puking in the washroom and as fi gets closer the noises start VERY graphic and it cuts to inside and he is gagging himself to make himself throw up…tried to skip as much as i could but VERY graphic -episode 8: right after fiona says “guess we’ll call the landlord and tell him we’ll take it” it lasts a while -episode 12: when frank and lip are skating AROUND 30:55 lip goes to the side of the rink and starts coughing it’s fairly graphic and then frank says “domino effect” and close up of him vomiting blood it looks very fake but could still be triggering and in the back you can see lips vomit season 4: -episode 1: veronica says she thinks she’s gonna be sick and runs to the washroom, audio only. -episode 3: they lead drunk mike to the bathroom and prop him up on the toilet it is very obvious he’s going to throw up. -episode 7: sammy bring in burger king for frank and he yells at her to get it out of the ro then cuts to a quick scene of him throwing up. followed by it slightly visible on the sheets -episode 10: fiona says she’s gonna puke she opens the car window and throws up season 5: -episode 11: (tgis is all an assumption cause i fast forwarded this whole part) but i THINK bianca id sick in the bathroom around 44:47 if thats the case it is just audio no visuals you just see frank outside the bathroom and tou can turn the vokume up once bianca comes out, i cant speak to how grapphic the sounds are because i didnt hear them cause i muted way before ir happened season 6: -episode 4: right after fiona asks if sean wants something to eat

Micky was homophobic to Ian at the beginning of the show. This homophobia was internalised due to his cruel upbringing. Micky's dad is homophobic & forces him to sleep with a woman. In season 5 Micky & Ian fight Micky's dad & while getting arrested Micky rubs in the fact that he's been in a sexual - & at that time also romantic - relationship with Ian for several years.

Steve's family kiss each other in a not family-like manner, Kevin's foster daughter attempts to have sex with him since she was raised in a cult (he rejects her), Karen's father has a creepy obsession with her sex life, Karen comes on to Frank multiple times despite dating his son and Frank sleeping with her mother and eventually has sex with him. Frank, being himself, was definitely not sober though was enthusiastic.
