Description

Elementary follows eccentric Sherlock as he escapes to Manhattan where his wealthy father forces him to live with his worst nightmare – a sober companion, Dr. Watson. A successful surgeon until she lost a patient and her license three years ago, Watson views her current job as another opportunity to help people, as well as paying a penance. However, the restless Sherlock is nothing like her previous clients. He informs her that none of her expertise as an addiction specialist applies to him and he's devised his own post-rehab regimen – resuming his work as a police consultant in New York City. Watson has no choice but to accompany her irascible new charge on his jobs. But Sherlock finds her medical background helpful, and Watson realizes she has a knack for playing investigator. Sherlock's police contact, Capt. Tobias "Toby" Gregson, knows from previous experience working with Scotland Yard that Sherlock is brilliant at closing cases, and welcomes him as part of the team. With the mischievous Sherlock Holmes now running free in New York solving crime, it's simple deduction that he's going to need someone to keep him grounded, and it's elementary that it's a job for Watson.

Filthy! Awesome!

Love it can't wait for more!!

Great Show

I enjoyed the pilot and first episode. I'm hoping for additional episodes, even a season pass! Great characters and chemistry between Holmes and Watson!

Treading the waters carefully

I admit at first when I heard about this show, I was already hating on it and saying all the things I imagine was going to go wrong with it and that it would be an insult to Rathbone and Brett. I had also found the way CBS went about the rights and casting to be kind of like a slap in the face to Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and Sue Vertue. Also, I had only seen JLM in Aeon Flux and judged him based on that. Terrible movie. Pretty, but dull.

I later became aware that Frankenstein was to play at a theater near me (CA, USA) I thought, I'd not only get to see Benedict Cumberbatch in a play, FINALLY, but also get to see if JLM was really capable of showing more emotion than a stick, since Victor Frankenstein, and the creature, both required passion. They both did marvelously and I was starting to think it MAY be able to work.

I had actually missed the first airing of the show, and decided to catch it online before episode 2 was to air. The first half of the episode felt as if it was torture. The characters had no feeling to them and I was starting to think my fears were coming true (Eg: They were going to start shipping them because of the fans; Lucy Liu was just there for the feminists; JLM was going to be an emotionless stick with fake tattoos.).

I had kept pausing it when it would start to be too much and go complain to my roommate, who quickly grew tired of my pesterings and eventually told me to sick it up or quit watching it. I continued. I had to. My stubbornness demanded it and my opinions needed to feed on something.

My brain on the other hand decided to train itself to think about all of this in a new way; this show is made by a big company. Of course it's not going to live up to all the other greats but lets compare this to the rest of America's shows at the moment. It's actually really not that bad. In fact after I kept watching whilst this continued to be my train of thought. I actually started to really like it. There were some very cute moments and some pretty impressive moments. The villains are also some very interesting characters (Eg: The kidnapped boy. Wow that kid.)

I have to admit...it's won me over...but I will keep myself guarded lest it end up like Bones where they cater to the fans' every shipping whim. I enjoy the teasing. This show has made me actually excited for the next episodes and I hope it continues to do so.

TL;DR: I hated the idea of it at first, but now, after watching it, I actually like it.
