Elementary - CBS's modern-day Sherlock Holmes series starring Lucy Liu



ELEMENTARY stars Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson in a modern-day drama about a crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD's most impossible cases. Following his fall from grace in London and a stint in rehab, eccentric Sherlock 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.

Re: Elementary - CBS's modern-day Sherlock Holmes series starring Lucy Liu

Sherlock Holmes has to be one of the most annoying characters ever.
I like Jonny, though, and Lucy is always worth watching.
I just might give it a try.

Do no harm, but take no shit.

The BBC's excellent Sherlock, similar in premise, means this new show has an awful lot to live up to.

Re: Elementary - CBS's modern-day Sherlock Holmes series starring Lucy Liu

Lucy

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

What's the fucking point?

Just hurry up and make new Sherlock episodes FFS, by far the best active TV show.

I don't like that Sherlock at all.

I've still to watch the first episode, but I hope it won't be as pretentious as the BBC version.

I love the fact that they changed Watson's gender in this show to female

Nah, the BBC version is brilliant. The casting of Watson as a woman in the American version screams gimmick, but maybe it will deliver.

I actually quite like the idea of casting a woman as Watson. Shows with a male-female dynamic always work better I think and it will be interesting to see how the Sherlock type world can work with a female Watson.

There will be some sexual tension between them, real or contrived, and at some point they'll sleep together. The end.
