    I love the take on this...

    I love the Sherlock & the Female Watson; their acting is superb...

    The addiction angle is tugging at my familial heart-strings.
  • 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

    4.5
    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.

    9.0
    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.

  • Awesome!

    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**.
