Lucy Liu is no Nigel Bruce
On the other hand, she is Lucy Liu. And since no one could ever replace Nigel Bruce, I'm really glad they did this thing with Lucy. She's a doll and I really love the mix up.
Miller is outstanding to say the least.
Sorry mmackay doesn't go for Lucy. Well, maybe she'll grow on him/her.

Lucy Liu is the Jar Jar Binks of Sherlock Holmes
I have loved SH since I was a little boy. The collective works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was one of the first things I ever read, and I have been a devoted fan of all things Sherlock ever since. At least until now.
JLM is marvelous. I even enjoy the New York twist, and the shows are well written, shot, cast, and directed. BUT Lucy Liu is, on a scale from 1 to 10, minus 75 trillion. I can't even watch the scenes she is in, I have to mute or fast forward during any of her dialogue, and it is still nearly beyond painful. I have never minded her in anything before, but her absolute butchery of this role is like watching a baboon finger paint randomly in the Louvre. Please. Someone. Make her stop.
I would rate the show a 9.5 but I am removing 5 points purely because of LL
Shame on you CBSmoreless
It is a great TV Show! Elementary! watson, elementary.
First firstly I am a very big fan of Sherlock from the BBC and Benedict is just great in that role and the series done in that modernize manner.
So when I started watching the US version, Elementary treating it like a "reboot" I starting watching the first season and I have to say it was very well done! I separate myself from the the classic Sherlock and then the modern version and now a American version with a female Watson and though it depart from the usual, I am bowl over by the quality of the plot line!
JLM is very good in his role. I just found it a little strange with Lucy playing the role a little demure then the usual feisty roles she played in other tv series heheh.
I welcome this reboot very much and the writing and crime are above average and well made out then most crime TV shows of late.
till the next season of Sherlock from BBC comes around, I will keep myself occupied with Elementary.
Brilliant. JLM is such an underrated actor. There are a lot of fans who don't like this version of Sherlock, which is understandable. But to skip the show because of that is a sin. BBC's Sherlock with overrated Benedict Cumberbatch is nowhere near the acting that Miller brings. Miller is Sherlock with so many layers, while BC is just pompous a**.
Despite all of the hole plots i love this show with all my heart! Jonny Lee Miller is incredible in this role, i hope this show will be airing for many years.
I agree with commentators, i didn't like Mycroft and kitty too, but let's just pretend like they never existed. Hopefully there'll be a better storyline in the future.
Seriously, I watched a bit because I was curious. But that's not how I know Sherlock Holmes.
He turned all of a sudden into an American, lost all his taste for looking good and even his acting... he is too different. I wonder why Watson has to be a female? So if you want some Johnlock, it has to be straight?
However, Americans shouldn't have touch an British television. It is more than horrible.
The work of Gattis and Moffat are incredible, brilliant and would never get bored.
Even the cases are more interesting, plus the was way of the friendship between Watson and Sherlock is in BBC just incredible.
Moriarty a woman? No way, Moriarty is the Napolon of Crime, Mister Sex - the man with the key. Good looking, evil and just brilliant.
And no, I don't care that this silly television got more episodes than BBC and I would say for sure
the true BBC Sherlock fans wouldn't like it at all.
PS: Benedict Cumberbatch is the best Sherlock Holmes!moreless
Elementary, My Dear Watson
I like Sherlock, but I love Elementary. I originally looked down on this show as being lesser than the first BBC show, but now, I'm firmly in Elementary's quarters, and that is largely thanks to the superb chemistry and acting between Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. Oh yes, and Natalie Dormer is superb as Irene Adler. Whilst I'm working my way through Season 2 as I type this review, It's still awesome. It's probably the best show on CBS apart from Person Of Interest, and well worth checking out.moreless
I hope Kitty comes back for a visit.
Thank god the "will they, wont they" will never happen on this show but the idea of Holmes and Watson as foster "mum and dad" blew im socks off. The writers are thinking "outside the box" for there partnership to a different level as we saw each week a new sence of pride that Holmes saw in Kitty's training.
Hope kitty has a few more arc's in the storylines.
Just two things - the mentally-challenged writers who introduced kitty as "protege" have gained some
grey matter once more and gotten rid of her (or maybe ,i'm hoping, they were replaced) .
Second , sherlock and watson are back to being The sherlock and watson from Doyle's book ,not from
the pages of yet another bowel-related,mundanely regular soap opera/ cbs crime . AND Sherlock is back
to being The Sherlock Holmes with the extraordinary brain and powers of observation,and Watson,his
keen and observant though not half as gifted associate/assistant. IF the producers and (moronic) writers
wish to keep this show running and growing,courtesy a devoted fan-following ie.moreless
