Sex & Nudity

  • Occasional sex scenes occur in a few episodes, covered, off screen/camera, no nudity. Sometimes we see underwear.
  • 'Fifteen Million Merits' shows porn on screens. In at least one shot a woman's breast is part visible (no nipple), and in another, a man and woman are shown having sex although no genitalia is visible. The porn scenes flash by quickly, so it is hard to see many details. Women are also shown seductively sucking on fingers.
  • 'Be Right Back' and 'The Entire History of You' have some light sex scenes.
  • 'The National Anthem' handles some mature sexual themes. Someone is forced to preform sexual intercourse with a live animal - the act is not shown in detail, although you do see a few shots of their face during it. Bestiality is not glorified in this episode, but instead, the characters seem distressed by the matter.
  • 'The Waldo Moment' contains one sex scene in a dark room. It also has a cartoon character making very lewd jokes, and showing a cartoon penis that he pretends to masterbate.

A man and a woman have a domestic and he throws a vase of flowers against the wall. A man follows a woman and tries to get her attention.

A character rips the skin off of another character's face, revealing a bloody, animated skeleton. A character impales another's head on a knife. A character writhes in agony and dies, not bloody.

Violence & Gore

  • A boy points a gun on a man and then turns it on himself, holding it under his chin and pulling the trigger. It fails.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • "Playtest" is a horror themed episode, and has both scary and distressing themes. While it is mostly slow burn anticipation / tension, there are several horror scenes towards the end of the episode. There are two jump scares, one is predictable, but the second is not, and involves the sudden transformation of a person into a gruesome insect. The character is later attacked and engages in bloody hand-to-hand combat. Someone is turned into a bloody animated skeleton. Most of the episode is psychological, with a character's sanity and life being threatened.
  • "White Bear" is very intense. It involves both psychological torment and physical violence. Humans are hunted by others, and some humans die.
