Elementary is an awesome show. I really enjoy watching shows based on Sherlock Holmes. With watching this show, you can learn alittle bit about detective work, even though most crime shows are alittle unrealistic for real life detective work and solving cases. Depending on certain episodes, there is always violence because with crime, there is death and criminal actions involved. There may even be cursing involved, and drugs, drinking, and smoking. But in the end, the criminal is caught and the crime is solved.
