Hollywood Keeps Pushing the Boundaries

I recommended this series to the parents of my grandchildren based on episode 1. When I got to episode, 2, I had to contact them and tell them I could no longer recommend it. After experiencing the f-word, implications of teens sleeping together, a group of people dropping all their clothes (neck up), a naked butt, and a lot of s-words, I am done with this, and so is my family.

Too much sex

Gory graphic horror scenes

Commonsense goofed up age! Very gory, not appropriate for sensitive viewers! Implied healthy teeth being ripped out of childrens' mouths, bloody murder victims tied with rope into strange upright poses, glimpse of teen girl before being raped by 3 adult men and given syphilis. And very gory scene of someone cutting off another person's face to wear as mask. Showing image of eyes and teeth in bloody skinless face. Definitely nightmar-ish! Main character finds crazy Sherlock Holmes in a heroin den. What has this got to do with the science and logic of Sherlock Holmes? Not appropriate for Jr. High 7th and 8th grade or even most adults.

This title has:

Too much violence
