S1E3: the bar becomes a 'safe haven' for underage drinkers; potentially concerning power dynamic between drunk, inexperienced teenagers and adults. S1E4: one of the characters tells women he has been diagnosed with cancer in order to get them to sleep with him. One character mentions that he previously had sex with another character that he considered non-consensual and describes how she ignored his refusals during the acts.

S11E4: two characters make a film about the man's rape by a librarian when he was in school. S11E5: evidence mounts that one of the main characters regularly sexually assaults women. Worthy of note: one of the main characters is a serial sexual predator who targets both men and women. Although the audience never witnesses any of his assaults, one of the show's running jokes is regarding this character's creepy behaviour. He videotapes the women who he has sex with without their consent. Despite being in his mid-to-late thirties, he tries to have sex with teenagers/coerce them into having sex with him. Other characters on the show explicitly refer to his actions as rape on multiple occasions. In addition to this, it is heavily implied that one of the main characters was molested by his uncle as a child and his trauma around this is repeatedly discussed. Another recurring plotline involving this character addresses his stalking/harassment of a woman he has known and been infatuated with since high school. There is a family of characters (the 'McPoyle Family') that is featured in many episodes. They are portrayed as being 'creepy' and are rumoured to be incestuous until later when they display incestuous behaviour between cousins and siblings (this is mostly implied, but is made unambiguous).
