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 of the best shows on TV. Why would you want to cancel it? I have been noticing that intelligent shows seem to get cancelled quicker than shows that appeal to idiots Too bad thy seem to outnumber us. I feel it is a cleaver adaptation of the original series.

Whats a matter with Mycroft? I will admit Kitty was a bit of a drag on the show but Mycroft at least brings up tension for Sherlock. At least he doesn’t bring up the fact that Sherlock was a drug addict.

I agree that Elementary is a great show but please, please keep away from the drug story and keep to the mysteries. I think this is a great show.

oh bring back more good villains!!!

Elementary is one of the best shows on TV! Love Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu and their symbiotic interplay.
We can do without Kitty or Mycroft. They take away from the focus of the show and add nothing but unnecessary tension.
Elementary is smart, clever, crisp, and edgy in a nice way. LOVE it!!!
Please keep it going!!!!!! :)
