-There are quite a few episodes wherein drinking alcohol is suggested in response to stress or emotional trauma. -Binge drinking is depicted in a handful of episodes. -In S5E19 "Bachelor/ette Party" there is excessive drinking, including drinking games -In S6E5 "A Tale of Two Bandits," the NYPD engages in an outright drinking contest with the FDNY that involves binge drinking to the point of vomiting.

Not mutilation but I'm quite sure they spray pepper spray into eyes in at least in one episode.

While undercover in Florida, Jake gets frosted tips in his hair. Upon returning to NYC, the squad tells him his hair looks stupid and that he can cut it or they will do so for him; this is portrayed as an intervention, and Jake is sitting in a chair wearing a barber's cape. At first Jake resists, but when he sees Charles has gotten the same hair style, he comments that he can finally see how bad the look is, and agrees to let them cut his hair.

In episode 11 of season three, Amy breaks Terry’s nose by kneeing him in the face during his self defense seminar. You hear it, see her kneeing him, but you can’t really see the nose. The aftermath can be seen though, and there is blood. Also in another episode, a man breaks his leg (offscreen), (GROSS WARNING) we hear the noise and Jake says, “nothing to see here, just the bone, sticking out of the leg”

Hitchcock has a mistress and it is mentioned that he's cheated on his wives many times, some side characters from specific episodes also cheat such as the Vulture on his fiancee and a few other examples and in a quite a few episodes cheating is also brought up. It is frequently joked with.

On multiple occasions people are kidnapped on this show - it is a police show so kidnappings and hostage situations are frequent.

Jake dresses up as a clown for Terry’s daughters’ birthday party. It is a very brief flashback but he does pop a balloon animal while preoccupied with a murder case.

There is at least one shower scene in the show but there is NO NUDITY shown and it is not meant to be uncomfortably erotic like most shows do shower scenes it is meant to be humorous and it includes many jokes.

probably more but season 6 ep 17: during a prison scene after Jake and Boyle finish talking to a cannibal inmate (Caleb), jake goes to shake his hand and he grabs it suddenly and tries to eat it. No sudden close-up, but definitely chaotic and unexpected.

In S8Ep4, while Boyle interrogates someone, he repeats Terry's dialogue about a baby that soiled himself just offscreen, and before Amy's presentation Terry throws water on a man's crotch and proclaims he peed himself. In S8Ep6, Terry again throws water on a man's crotch.

S6 ep 5: Charles and Captain Holt both throw up after drinking in the bar. S8 ep 3: Terry says he’s nauseous several times, which worried my emetophobic daughter. But he never throws up the entire episode - his stomach just makes repeated rumbling noises. Safe to watch this one.

There are several hospital scenes, and an entire episode takes place solely in a hospital where they are guarding an unconscious witness who is in danger.

Yes Terry has a lot of body dysmorphia due to being fat before the show took place. He is obsessed with maintaining his perfect body and reacts very strongly to any sort of fat joke. At one point his wife is concerned with losing baby weight causing Terry, Amy and Gina to go on a comically restrictive diet in solidarity.

The only panic attacks I can think of are Amy’s claustrophobia, Rosa’s fear of giving blood and Holt’s elevator phobia. All are mild but do feature heavy breathing etc. I can’t think of any others off the top of my head but I think there are a couple others (involving Jake and Charles?).

Amy, the claustrophobic character, is occasionally locked in small spaces and experiences anxiety. The cast as a whole is occasionally trapped in a specific room for humor or plot points, but they are not generally tense.

While the answer is yes, the hate speech portrayed is done so by the antagonist of the episode and he is promptly punched in the face into a hot tub. Likewise, the main characters share their disgust toward that kind of speech. It is there, but it is swiftly punished and denounced.

In the early seasons there is a lot of copaganda, even if it's not necessarily outright. Notably, in S1Ep19, a cop uses on her cop friend a sound cannon like those used by cops against BLM protestors in the US, and this is treated as a harmless joke that she finds cool and fun. While there are lots of messages increasingly throughout the show on how to improve the police force, such as standing up against racial profiling in S4Ep16, it's still hard to deny that this show favourably depicts cops performing negative actions. It's even a common thing for cops in the 99 (particularly Jake) to break the rules, such as spying on and/or arresting 'suspects' before any proof or evidence is gathered, simply because the cops 'have a hunch,' and they almost always turn out to successfully solve and resolve crimes for having done this. However, it is worth saying that Season 8 has completely turned the show around to take a serious look at issues in the police force, such as addressing in S8Ep1 the now commom idea that there are no actual 'good cops' by nature of them just being in the police force (aka ACAB), and having an ongoing plot about the 99 combating an old white guy who helps cops avoid retribution for literally everything. The release of Season 8 was even delayed because the show scrapped the first few episodes in order to reflect on its messages in wake of the BLM movement that surged in 2020. Ultimately, this show is copaganda for how it routinely plays off amoral and illegal actions of the police force as jokes or being the right thing to have done in the end, but one can't deny that it's further ahead than other cop shows in regards to reflecting on issues in the police force and now actively working to improve it in the show. Still, this show isn't perfect, and it's 100% understandable that someone may wish to avoid any and all instances of copaganda.

The show hasn't ended yet but I don't understand how the ending would be unhappy. In fact, the season finales from season 6,7&8 are tear-jerkers because of how happy and warm it makes you feel inside

This is a cop show; guns are shown, pointed, and fired. At the end of S1 E11, a main character is shown being shot in the b**t (he survives and this is mainly played for comedic effect).
