Hi anon! Thanks so much for the polite and informed response! As I do not frequent Reddit, I was not aware that there was a reaction. Most of the episode are more or less adult material borderline, I was just very caught off guard by that episode in particular and the lack of any warning or consideration. I will definitely tread with caution with my viewing, but I do wish there was more pre-episode content warning! Grrr! Inconsiderate writing!
Most shows on most networks don’t have a warning for specific things that may offend people. They just have the rating and the letters for somewhat specifics (the “S” always covering most forms of sexual content) and the “some content may be unsuitable. viewer discretion is advised” type of warning which doesn’t go into specifics. The one time Cartoon Network did do a specific warning was with a Naruto episode where a character pulled out his beating heart (which was odd since there was no blood and the scene wasn’t much different than other shows which did similar scenes in a more comedic fashion). And obviously, Adult Swim wouldn’t put up such a warning.
I guess the issue with specific pre-episode content warnings is where do you draw the line of what deserves more than just the general warning. Sexual assault is something some folks may find in poor taste or otherwise won’t be able to watch for various reasons (especially with shows that make black comedy from it), but it isn’t the only thing of this nature,
