Is Breaking Bad full of triggers?

I keep hearing how Breaking Bad is the best show in the history of the universe and would love to start watching on Netflix, I could use to get immersed in a series, but I'm terrified it will be triggery. For those who have watched it, opinions? Thx!

I didn't trigger while watching it. I honestly don't remember if there was any infidelity...I don't think there was. It was just a great show IMO. I had a lot of sympathy for the main character at first, then I hated him, and by the end I liked him again.

Yes there is infidelity but it actually triggered fWS and not me. We are only halfway through season 3 so I don't know if there is more to come though.

AWESOME show though!!!!!

None that I recall relating to infidelity, but I do believe Walter White was a narcissist in the extreme.

Might hit home for those of us with NPD folk in our lives.

It's a tough one. The wife does have sex outside the marriage when she is trying to separate from her abusive husband (who refuses to leave). Definitely not a good way to deal.
It didn't find it triggery, but can see how it can be for sure.

Thanks for explaining Sadone...given that it is the woman doing the cheating I'm hoping it won't trigger me too bad.

Is there alot of sex scenes? I'm not doing so well with those lately, I immediately see WH and OW anytime anyone so much as kisses passionatley on tv. Ugh.

No, I find this show doesn't have many graphic sex scenes. I don't remember any nudity, actually, but I might not be remembering right.
There is one scene that really disturbed me in the second season where Walter sexually assaults his wife.
Lots of difficult and uncomfortable situations, but it really is an incredible show.
