They had to make enough changes so that it wouldn't resemble BBC's Sherlock too much, that's probably why they made Watson female (+ obviously want to create some sexual tension there). The BBC version was made by Sherlock Holmes fanatics, the American one is made by people who're jumping on the bandwagon.
I'm not sure I can bring myself to watch Elementary, since I love Sherlock so much.

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

I am Sherlock Holmes fanatic, and I hate the BBC version. Tried through four episodes. Awful. Definitely not brilliant in my view. However, I'm sure I'll be a critic of the CBS version as well, once I see it.

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

i must agree, i don't get the fuss over the BBC show, neither. i thought it was quite annoying and way too flashy. i also didn't like how watson was of hardly any use at all. come to think of it, IMHO that's one of the most tiresome concepts, the all-knowing main character (as in house or the mentalist).

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

It's awful. I tried for Lucy, I really did. It's just another run of the mill US crime show. Quirky, unstable yet heroic lead detective, who has a love-hate relationship with his female sidekick. This is US crime show by the numbers, just with the characters coming from Sherlock Holmes.

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

It will probably get canceled very soon. Lucy Liu's career is in the toilet. The movie roles seem to have dried up and her TV series has little to no hope of getting renewed for a second season.

The rating is high though. More than enough to get renewed for a 2nd season.

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

So far I like it but yeah . .it doesn't fit with my idea of Sherlock Holmes. Neither does the BBC series - which I don't like at all.

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

On IMDB the BBC's Sherlock series gets a very high 9.2/10 rating from IMDB voters, Ekementary a decent 6.8/10.

That broadly tally's with the bulk of the reviews I've seen. Most have said Elementary is a good show, but that Sherlock overshadows it.

None of which makes it a definitive fact that Sherlock is the better show. Just it gives a clear idea of the wider perception out there.
