Sex & Nudity

  • Throughout the entire series there is limited nudity. It's not as much titilating or exciting rather it advances the plot. Overall, the show only features female nudity twice. However is censored on television edits of the show. Season one contains a few graphic sex scenes with no nudity. As for the rest of the series the sex is either implied or not shown explicitly. The sex in this show is never graphic and never features nudity accompanying it.
  • Episode 1: A woman is seen completely topless through an open window as she throws a man's clothes out the window. This scene is very brief. A woman pleasures her husband under the covers with her hand. This scene lasts about 2-3 minutes and is awkward and comedic more than anything. This scene contains no nudity.

  • Episode 5: During the opening strip club montage, we see two strippers bare breast exposed as they dance suggestively with one another. We also see a brief clip of a woman taking off her bra and a man motorboating her bare breasts. However this is edited out of the television versions and replaced with clips of an Asian woman dancing seductively. Although we still see several extremely scantily clad women in both versions.

Violence & Gore

  • Hank gets into a bar fight with a group of bikers. Some blood is seen.
  • Violence and Gore are common themes throughout the entire series. This is an extremely disturbing show. Acts of violence include dissolving bodies in acid, beating people to death, decapitation, choking to death on vomit, numerous stabbing and shootings using various forms of knives and guns, emotional torture, etc. Across all seasons, the acts of violence and gore is relatively constant.
  • Season 1
  • Episode 2: In the last five minutes (probably the most gruesome in the history of the show), a man places a corpse in a bathtub and begins pouring strong acid onto it. We see blood on the bottom of the bathtub. Later, the acid melts through the floor; blood, gore, meat, and bones falls through and splatters everywhere.
  • Episode 3: the first three minutes of the episode, before the title sequence starts, consist of the characters cleaning up dissolved body parts. In one of the last scenes, a man is choked to death with a bike lock. Lasts for about 20 seconds. The man stabs the attacker in the leg with a broken piece of plate before he dies.
  • Season 2
  • Episode 1: a man who has been beaten to death is shown foaming at the mouth and dying. After he dies, another man tries to hide the body beneath a stack of crushed cars that fall on him and take off his arm. Police who find the crime scene remove the man's body from the cars, we see some gore and brief blood splatter as they pull his body from the cars and lay the man's corpse down. The police seem to find it amusing and take photos of the two dead men.
  • Episode 6: in a somewhat bizarre sequence, a woman knocks an ATM on a man, crushing his head. We hear an awful squishing/splatting sound when it happens and then see the man lying with the ATM covering his head as blood pools around him. A child is in the house when this happens but doesn't witness the death, so another man runs him outside and makes the child close his eyes to avoid seeing the gruesome scene. This scene is quite disturbing.
  • Episode 7: a group of men see a decapitated head on a tortoise. One goes to lift the head off and it turns out to be a bomb and explodes. Briefly, dismembered men can be seen screaming in agony and sitting in their own blood.
  • Episode 11: a man is shot several times by a child.
  • Season 3
  • Episode 3: in the first five minutes of the episode, someone's head is chopped off with a machete. We see the matchete go through the man's neck for a brief second. The rest of decapitation is shown off screen, but we see a streak of blood hit a wall. The head is later seen on a turtle shell.
  • Episode 6: in the prologue before the theme song starts, a policeman is killed by an axe and an elderly woman's corpse is shown.
  • Episode 7: At the end, a shootout happens at a parking lot. An innocent bystander is shot and killed, one gunman is critically wounded with three bloody bullet wounds in him and his hands are covered in blood. The other shooter is then shot in the head. Blood and brain matter splatters onto the camera. This scene is graphic and fairly bloody.
  • Episode 12: two men who are threatening another are suddenly run over by another man. No blood is shown, but there is clear sight of the car making an impact. One dies instantly, but the other is still alive with a broken leg and is then shot in the head. Blood splatters on the ground.
  • Episode 13: a man points his gun at a wall (another man's head is on the other side), and shoots. A moderate amount of blood splatter can be seen from a distance. The shooter then shoots a man in the hand off screen. We then see the man's hand bleeding with a severe bullet wound through it
  • Season 4
  • Episode 1: we see a man on the floor with a bullet hole through his head and blood soked around him. Later a man's throat is suddenly sliced with a box cutter.

Also we see men cleaning a blood soaked floor.
  • Episode 8: in a flashback sequence, a man is suddenly shot in the head. We see blood pour out of his head as he falls towards a pool. The man's friend is held down and forced to look at the man bleeding out into the pool as he struggles and protests. Disturbing and bloody.

Once in Season 2 (episode 6), twice in Season 3 (episodes 3, 10), three times in Season 4 (episodes 3, 9, 11), and five times in Season 5 (episodes 3, 6, 7, 14, 15).

  • Moderate amount of "hell", "damn", "ass", and "shit."
  • More infrequent profanities include "goddamn" and the insults "jerk-off", "pussy", "asshole", "dick" and "prick".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Despite the anti-drug messages, some teenagers might get the impression that cooking meth is a good way to make money
  • A character in Seasons 1 and 2 is constantly seen snorting from a large knife. He often engages in violent and erratic behavior whenever he is on meth.
  • It is important to state that this show delivers a very strong anti-drug message by showing the negative side effects of drugs. However, this is the reason for the show's mature rating.
  • The premise of the show is about a man resorting to making drugs to get much needed money for his expensive cancer treatment and for his family after he dies. He is shown in a few scenes making drugs with a recipe made up by the show's producers and cannot be copied.
  • Clearly negative characters are shown to have drugs and are punished by the police for this.
  • Characters are smoking Cannabis, smoking, snorting methamphetamine, injecting heroin, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol. It's all shown.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Rated TV-MA for strong disturbing violence, grisly images, drug content throughout, language and sexuality/nudity.
  • The overall tone of the series is very dark and depressing.
  • Themes such as death/dying, cancer, family dysfunction, drug addiction, and more are all explored throughout.
  • The last 3 episodes feature a main character who is beaten, tortured and force to be a meth slave. These episodes will be highly disturbing for many viewers.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • In the final episode, Walter White is involved in the middle of a shootout and is mortally wounded. In the last moments of the episode, he goes to a lab, smiling in satisfaction after having successfully secured the future of his family, meaning he has accomplished his goal, before succumbing to his wounds and dying peacefully as police investigates the lab. This is pretty emotional, but it's an immensely satisying finale to one of the most beloved TV shows of all time.
  • In one episode called "Crawl Space", Walter becomes insane and suffers a mental breakdown, laughing maniacally as Skyler looks on in horror. This scene is very scary and tense, and it's made even scarier by Bryan Cranston's top-notch performance, the chilling music and the excellent editing. This scene has been known for scaring out quite a few viewers, and it's easy to see why.
  • The most iconic and top rated episode of the series "Ozymandias" features a ton of shocking and dark scenes such as a major character getting killed off, and a 3 year old child getting kidnapped by her father after he tries to murder his wife.
