It would be hard to go wrong with Sherlock Holmes as your base story but the writers have captured even more than the original with this series. The 2 main players Sherlock (played exceptionally well by Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (played just as well by Lucy Liu)just add depth to an already interesting story each week. This can be called a bromance, but one of the bros just happens to be a woman. He said that from the very beginning and I think it's really an apt description. There's this idea that a man and a woman can't be together on a show especially without needing to be together sexually or in love or whatever, and this is really about the evolution of a friendship and how that happens. Watching that should be as much the story of this show as the mysteries that you see week in and week out about who killed who. I just know that after 3 episodes I am already addicted. The addition of Aidan Quinn as Captain Tobias Gregson of the New York City Police Department was genius. He genuinely likes Holmes and the two have mutual respect for each other so we get to avoid the good cop bad cop plot lines that many shows that have talented citizens playing at detectives, I love The Mentalist but this show takes the genre to a new level of entertainment.

The dynamic between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Joan Watson was a surprise. I was concerned the gender switch of Dr. Watson was being done just for the sake of novelty, but Lucy Liu brings a very good balance to the role. Her take on Dr. Watson blends admiration for Sherlock's talents with repudiation of his lack of tact and regard for others.

This version of Sherlock Holmes is also distinctive from other incarnations beyond simply the change of locale to New York city. Jonny Lee Miller's portrayal of Holmes is fresh and compelling. He manages to bring a quiet intensity to the portrayal while still capturing Holmes' penchant for tantrums. 'Sherlock', the BBC version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective, stars Benedict Cumberbatch (notable for his work in Star Trek: Into Darkness) as a Sherlock Holmes who is, by his own admission, a high functioning sociopath. Miller's Holmes is driven not only by his need to solve puzzles/homicides, but by his desire to see justice served. Miller judiciously lets Holmes facade of confidence and imperiousness slip just enough to give us glimpses of the character's vulnerability. He allows just enough of a peek behind the curtain so we can see the regard he holds for Watson while not devolving into a sentimentality that would rob the character of all credibility. Thank God it was renewed for a 2nd season.

I am so glad that finally we are moving away from reality TV and back to great scripted television shows like Elementary. For those who love mysteries, this show will be very enjoyable and you won't be able to take your eyes off Johnny Lee Miller--he's that good!

First of all, may I just say here and now that, apparently if you already watch and enjoy the BBC Sherlock series, you will be inclined to hate this one. I am not entirely sure why, but just to prove my point, look up all the 1 and 2 star reviews of Elementary here and count how many times the BBC show or it's actors are mentioned. Then go to the 5 star reviews and notice the depth of critique and the simultaneous lack of comparison to another show's take on Sherlock Holmes.

Okay. That aside:

This show is exceptional. Not only would it stand alone quite well without Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes ever having been written (which to some insults their ideas and affinities for SACD's work), but also adds societal context, modernity, and depth to Sherlock Holmes (something no one can say is easy, much less executable in such an artistic and subtle way as this series).

First, let us look at trying to place such a genius intellect and deductionist in today's cynical, apathetic, passive, low resolve and high civil retaliation context of modern London. This is where we must put a modern day Holmes, from his infancy up to his (SPOILER ALERT) inevitable heroine addiction. In the early London of Sir Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, there was this resolve, this popular tenacity in London, not to mention a clear cut notion of right and wrong, that permeated it's core culture and drive. A young man with Sherlock Holmes' gifts would have found quite a station and calling as he grew up in the higher learning institutions and accepting fields of forensics, police work, and medicine with their backdrop of solid morality and unwavering credos. He would have undoubtably arisen as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's main man as written. Logic trumps superstition and evil manipulation.

A very original series, fun and the crime solving is top notch, Sherlock (Johnny Lee Miller) is brilliant and his counter part Miss Watson (Lucy Lui)is a wonderful change to the original male character Dr. Watson. A great twist on an old story. Definitely a Keeper....A Class Act.....

Well written, excellent acting, and an amusing premise. It's certainly no depiction of real life, but as entertainment it is as engaging as it gets. The charactor of Holmes is an interesting take on the stories by the author Conan Doyle and a delight to watch in action. Watson is well acted, as only Miss Liu is capable of doing, with an acid touch to the relationship between these two which lends spice to an old format. Set in the present in New York city the stories, thus far, have been original in their settings and themes. Aitogether a very watchable show that should catch and hold the public's attention for many seasons to come.

Where is the Blu Ray version?
Most WB popular shows r made in the blu-ray format take for instance Person of Interest, or Nikita or Revolution. It strikes me as being foolish to produce the show in high def and then not take the time to bring it out on Blu-Ray. If your going to make a high quality show which by the way is... Read More
