Watching stuff in public

Is there any.... etiquette regarding watching TV/Movies on your laptop in a public place (like a train or an airplane)?
Assuming you have headphones. Where do you draw the line about what's OK to watch in public? For example, is porn not OK while explicit sex scenes in a rom-com is? Gore/torture movies vs crime shows?

I was thinking about this last Sunday as I was on a two hour train journey and realized all I had to watch was Criminal Minds. It was a recent episode that dealt with burn/bleach victims and I thought it was more gruesome than I expected it to be. I angled my screen down a bit everytime something gross came on so I'm hoping no one was bothered.
