Elementary is a contemporary update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's character Sherlock Holmes, starring Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson, a female version of Holmes' companion. Here, Holmes is a former consultant to Scotland Yard and a recovering drug addict. He travels to New York City to check into a rehabilitation center and then lives with Watson, who becomes his sober companion and eventually his apprentice.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I love the intelligent British historical figure brought into modern life, similar to Sleepy Hollow, and I find the Sherlock character to be fascinating, and the actor to be brilliant at it. The story lines can at times be weak, and the heavy US police focus is a drain.
