Elementary- Pilot

Surprisingly, we didn’t hate this. It’s a serviceable case-of-the-week crime procedural with a brilliant, socially…different… detective. They named him Sherlock Holmes and they named his companion Watson. We like the twist where Watson is female and played by Lucy Liu. We love her. We also liked that there wasn’t a spark of romantic attraction between them, even though both main characters are attractive. They have a good platonic chemistry, and we look forward to seeing them date other people. Not each other. That’s cliché.

The case this week was good, with lots of twists and believable clues, even though Xanax comes in three colors, and one of them is pink. There are still things we don’t know about both Watson and Holmes’s pasts, so that could keep viewers coming back. We are sure the show isn’t as good as the BBC Sherlock, which we haven’t yet seen (we know, shame on us). We will fix that soon/when we are in the mood. This isn’t going to be a show we follow. We’ll watch it when it happens to be on though. If you like crime procedurals and troubled geniuses though, we won’t try to convince you not to watch this show.

We're really going to miss Lucy on Southland.

Episode grade: B


  1. Yes it is not as awesome as the BBC Sherlock, but I liked this one, especially Lucy Liu. And yes you guys should watch BBC Sherlock right away. Its one of the best.

    1. We've been ten minutes into it for like three weeks. It's gonna happen though.
