Abbott Elementary

TV Show • 2021 • Comedy  

Report
In this workplace comedy, a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal — are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life. Though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.

very mild stuff that is not exactly abuse, but not how a child should be treated. s1 e1 a child is kicked by a teacher (it is not shown, but right after is shown) and the teacher is immediately fired. in multiple episodes, the principal takes a child away from his or her learning or even lunch for personal gain (to help her with her computer, etc.) It is played for jokes and no child is shown in any distress or pain.

the principal ava, consistently hits on/sexualizes gregory and this is played for laughs. not sexual assault but she definitely makes him very uncomfortable with her "flirting" and it can definitely be considered sexual harassment

Not shown onscreen, but before the beginning of the show’s timeline, a minor character is blackmailed by someone who catches him cheating.

Also a love triangle subplot.

The first episode centers around students in a classroom where the rug that the children love breaks, and their teacher tries to figure out how to get a new one. The children ask the teachers a few questions and are sad about the rug being gone. One more emotional scene relating to the rug later on in the episode.

A little girl vomits toward the middle-end of episode one. You don’t see her vomit. She just says “I threw up” when asked by Quinta Brunson’s character of what’s wrong with her. You do see vomit on her shirt in the scene after.

it’s filmed as a documentary, and some of the filming is definitely handheld cameras. it’s not bad most of the time but there are a few dizzying moments. not sure why there are all no votes.

no antisemitism. just a heads up about an irreverent use of the word “nazi”, in S2:E13, IF you have the subtitles turned on it lets you know that Melissa is impersonating a character called “The Soup Nazi” (from a Seinfeld episode)
