Elementary brings us a modern-day Sherlock Holme's played by Johnny Lee Miller, and his partner Joan Watson played by Lucy Liu. Things are different around the turn of this century, and those details are not lost on Sherlock who's over-stimulation led him into a stint in an American rehab facility. Having decided that work is his best chance to stay grounded he's decided to work for the NYPD where an old contact from Scotland Yard, Captain Thomas "Tommy" Gregson, has agreed to bring him in as a consultant. Watson's appointed role in his life, as a Sober companion, is one that Sherlock fights until he realizes that Watson's usefulness goes beyond his father's wishes. She accompanies him, with or without his consent, around New York assisting him on many different types of cases, and to get through his daily life.

Bloody Brilliant!!Rating: 4 likes, 1 dislikes

Elementary is definitely one of my favorite new shows! I'll admit, I'm biased, having already been fans of both the talented Jonny Lee Miller ("Hackers" and "Trainspotting") and the beautiful Lucy Liu ("Ally McBeal", "Kill Bill") for a long time. Still, I wasn't sure if yet another Sherlock Holmes remake would work, especially after the BBC's new version has done so well across the pond. But, I am very pleased to report, America's newest Sherlock is nothing short of Bloody Brilliant! Read more

Why have the writers chosen to make Wtson such a frakin bitch this season 3? She is a MAJOR turnoff for me now...perhaps Lucy wanted to play a horrible person? I don't get it! I don't care what "wrongs" she perceives Sherlock did...she knew how he was and she stayed around - so wtf? Knock it off writers...bring her back to at least a semi-likeable person...this show is too good to have that nonsense! Read more
