TV show description:      
This TV series gives a new take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle characters. It’s 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 detective Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) escapes to Manhattan where his wealthy father forces him to live with his worst nightmare — a sober companion, Doctor Joan Watson (Lucy Liu). She was 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 finds she has no choice but to accompany her irascible new charge on his jobs. In the end, Sherlock finds her medical background helpful, and Watson realizes she has a knack for playing investigator.

Sherlock’s police contact is Captain Tobias “Toby” Gregson (Aidan Quinn). He knows, from previously working with Scotland Yard, that Sherlock is brilliant at closing cases, and welcomes him as part of the team.

    This is one show that my wife and I can agree on to watch together. I can remember when families would sit around at night and watch TV together, what happened to those times? If here were more shows like this on TV, I feel that there would be more families watching TV together.

  2. Walter & Deborah Nichols says

    Also, why haven’t the writers written episodes with a growing romantic involvement between the 2 main characters?

    I love this show. Please do not cancel it. There are hardly any good shows on tv like this. They all have too much sex, etc. on them. Love the story lines. Keep it clean.

    Those of you who really like the show Elementary please write in and let others know how you feel about the show. I love it and I don’t normally watch TV. Please do not cancel this show.

    Please, please, please renew Elementary!! It is an awesome TV program and Johnny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu and supporting cast are all first rate.

      And what type of shows do you like. Personally I really don’t think were watching the same tv show. I think the show is great it gives a new and refreshing look to the old classic. If you don’t like the show you don’t have to watch it. But to say don’t renew it is wrong. Like I said before JUST DON’T WATCH IT.

      I never cared or watched any Sherlock Holmes shows until Elementary Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller are just great.

    I hope this runs for many seasons, yet. Great series and good acting by the 4 main characters.

    I love the show it is the only tv show that I care about and the only one I watch. The cast is just great. They all just work so well together I would like this show to never be cancelled.
    Lucy Liu is my favorite actress she brings so much to the show and Jonny Lee Miller is a joy to watch. Together they are fantastic.

    Please renew. My entire family really enjoys this show. It’s educational, humorous, exciting .
    We especially like the interaction between Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. It’s one of the most entertaining shows on TV.

    I really love this show! The dialogue is intelligent and smart. I enjoy following along with the clues leading to evidence pertinent to the case. I think Joan and Sherlock should get together. I know many shows romantically link their lead characters; House, The Mentalist, Castle, Bones, and many others. In Elementary, the two lead characters live together and work together; why not let them have a relationship?
