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.

SPOILERS ALERT!

I am obsessed with Sherlock Holmes and fell in love with the BBC (UK) adaption of Sherlock- it was phenomenal.
The problem is that it set the bar so high for other Sherlock Holmes adaptions and unfortunately I kept comparing it to Elementary.

What I enjoyed.

I really enjoyed Johnny Lee Miller's (phwoar, he is hot) relationship with Lucy Liu; it was a fresh perspective to the Holmes and Watson relationship that has never been considered.

What I did not enjoy.

I did not enjoy Irene Adler as Jim (sorry Jaime) Moriarty as I think combining the two characters was silly. Definitely didn't enjoy this mash up.

Maybe because it was American but I despised the portrayal of Britain and being British shown in the episode where Holmes goes to help Lestrade. Talk about stereotype!

Overall, Elementary catches some elements of the addictive nature that is Sherlock Holmes and I will be continuing to watch it. But the fresh new look isn't on par with the British version.

Love the chemistry between the two main stars. It is good and witty and funny at time. I love this show and I am very happy it has been renewed.

Incredible! Witty. Hilarious. Gripping. Heartwarming. Heartbreaking. Absolutely addictive in every sense. Once you start watching you can't stop. J L Miller is incredible, absolutely amazing. Love Lucy Liu in this. Waiting anxiously for the next episode. Last episode, holy shit what even, no! What??! You can't just leave it on that note! Its not fair! Fucking cliffhangers for africa.

Love this take on Sherlock and Watson! And Lucy is always wonderful to watch act. If you're trying to compare it to Sherlock on BBC, don't. They are two very different shows with incredibly different stories. They both have there pros and cons.

Any proper English version is going to be better.
But ... it is enjoyable. SO AOK. Probably another day time TV candidate.
UPDATE: All happens in the last 10 minutes so ...
