  • Brilliant!

    Perhaps one of my favourite episodes, this one was excellent on two fronts. This little side story with Bell adn Watson was very interesting - I loved how they executed it and the ending was ultimately sad yet fitting. I was excited by this storyline without the main storyline but the main storyline itself was amazing.

    I loved the main case - it had everything from an interesting contraption worth millions to sabotage and murder and whistleblowers. It was just a complete case.

    Well executed and edgy - one of my favourite eps of Elementary!moreless
  • Cancer Treatment.

    So Barry Granger is found murdered and the number one suspect is Hank Prince, who is having an affair on his wife. Prince' wife is murdered and he has a perfect alibi, saying he was with his girlfriend Sloane. That alibi is blown when Sloane turned on Prince, so Prince murdered his wife created a false alibi and murdered not only his wife, but Granger. The other case that Bell and Watson was working on, didn't exactly go down all that well, Manny Rose who is looking after the witness Nicole Watkins ends up dead. All things considered Bell's celebration party, brings Sherlock and Bell closer together, seeing how both of them don't attend. Love This Show.moreless
  • Fun With Gasses

    Oh yeah, definitely paying attention to Hannibal. "We can smell cancer, guys!" Elementary seems to be trying to bolster itself, make itself more edgy. The flavor has changed quite a bit over this season, like it's trying to compete with the other shows that have that darker, more intense feel. It's not quite working for Elementary, though. It's dangerous trying to make a change like this in a second season, but we'll if they iron it out soon. The case this week was very convoluted, back-and-forth, almost how some of the first episodes in season one were. It's not a good thing. Bring it back together, guys. Also, sad about the sudden lack of roosters. They should have mentioned the bees or Claude.moreless
  • Hounds of cancer cells

    The obvious analogy to the Hounds of baskerville made me grin when I read it^^

    But the murder in the first 2 minutes seems very unlikely to work. The victim should have heard the

    attacker sticking the tape to the door. And while the Helium is rushing into the room, there still had to be enough oxygen to respirate, because the prior oxygen in the room couldnt escape or am I wrong?

    dont want to spoil more, so CUmoreless
