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.

Show has been great! Every episode I am blown away by the creative structure and paths it takes me. I would love to be apart of there team writing thinking about what some bad person is going to do next. My only question is why not have a bad guy get away instead of always getting caught?

Johny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu developed into a great charasmatic couple that has been destroyed by bad writing the last part of last season and this year is just horrendous. This young woman playing Kitty is OK but to me moving Watson out of the Brownstone was not a great idea. Love the actors Miller and Liu. Liu is easy on the eyes and a great calming effect when watching but now who cares. If the show goes I am going to miss the characters and Lius legs.
