At the beginning in the Limo, Sherlock is riding backwards (facing the back of the car) but when he is talking, the background of the road etc is moving such that the car would have to be driving in reverse! Who's job is it to watch for these things, and was he fired over that massive continuity flaw? Especially just a few episodes after they were making fun of continuity!
As a geneticist in my previous life (now its more business than science) I was mildly amused at the plot line - not too far off base (ATGC pun intended) as regards what is possible these days but to do it you'd have to have the time and resources - and that made the plot explanation a bit thin - having such resources you'd not use it to gain grants but start your own gene-therapy company and yadda yadda finance to cure yourself toot-suite.
Anyway, it was nice to see Watson (another genetics pun?) have her day and trial her skills successfully - very pleasing to see the detective team develop complementtary skills and share abilities!
Solid showing and good character development... just lacking that "X" factor to lift it....
I was so off-put by how awkward Joan was all of a sudden in this episode, but it did make sense that she would be uncomfortable sleuthing on her own. The case itself wasn't much at all, but the side plots and the little distractions were what made the episode. DNA and dino models. Bees in boxes (and the teaser tricking us into thinking it got squashed). The dry cleaners. The incredible dynamic between the two main characters. This show, while rocky to begin with, is now holding my attention.
It's Watson's turn to take center stage in this terrific episode. Lucy Liu is excellent (as usual). So far she has never been better. It was a real treat watching her solve the mystery of, as she put it, "The world's worst dry She certainly proved her worth to Sherlock here! The main storyline was quite entertaining as well. It has always been great fun watching Holmes work a case. Johnny Lee Miller is perfectly cast. I hope when the Emmys are handed out both Miller and Lucy Liu get some well deserved recognition.
OK so i just noticed this as i was watching the episode.... at 4min and 25 seconds into the episode, Sherlock is talking to the rich guy in the limo and they are sitting on opposite sides, you can clearly see which way the limo is going, until Sherlock is talking and then suddenly the limo is now suddenly driving backwards at 40-50 mph.
Imagine me and you, Holmes does. Joan thinks about it day and night, its only right. To think about a case they love and hold it tight. So happy together.
In a rather uncommon honeymoon stage, the characters get to enjoy their newfound partnership, as well as each other's company, in a manner in which they have soon become accustomed. Watson can't stop smiling, Sherlock can't stop challenging her, they can't stop teasing one another: at the dry cleaner, at home or at the case of the week. For the time being, they have earned this simple, yet completely memorable, stage of bliss.
Possibility Two was another brilliant and very entertaining episode of Elementary. I really enjoyed watching because there was a lot of character and plot development. It was awesome to see Holmes instructing Watson in the ways ofvbeing a genius detective. The story was intriguing and interesting. I liked how everything played out and I certainly look forward to watching what happens next! !!!!!!!!
Great episode Holmes is training Watson & i knew the first time when Watson went to the dry cleaners, she mentioned the mink coat that something wasn't right. Watson was right the dry cleaners was a front for money laundering & so on. Holmes & Watson are really working well together. I dont know who wrote this episode but it was very well written. Thumbs Up. (I Did Notice The Limo Moving Backwards).
