ELEMENTARY - News, Reviews, and Discussion
 
Since it was suggested in a Sherlock thread that there should be a separate thread for CBS' Elementary (though there are dead threads here and here)...

There were two big pieces of Elementary news yesterday.

First, Rob Doherty talked about the Super Bowl episode, Moriarty, and Irene Adler as part of the Television Critics Association's press tour. In particular, despite recent revelations, there will be an actress cast as Irene.

Second, John Hannah has been cast Rhys, Holmes' former drug dealer.

I can't place Hannah (he was in The Mummy movies, though I don't remember him).

As for Adler, I hope that, like the Canon character, she's an American. If she's from New Jersey, again like the Canon character, then that could suggest a reason for Holmes' decision to come to New York, so that he can experience the world that she knew before her murder.

So Irene will be played by Snookie? ;)

I have to admit I like this show - Miller does a great job as Sherlock, and I'm looking forward to Hannah showing up - chewing less scenery than his epic role in the first two seasons of Spartacus, I should think!

John Hannah was Evie's brother, the greedy one.

He's been in loads of stuff. Look him up - you should recognise him.

I'd have preferred him to be Mycroft, but he's a bit thin for that part...

I wasn't expecting too much from this show after the first couple of episodes, since it seemed mostly like a typical CBS police drama, but it has really begun to stand out for me. Especially after this past week's episode, which was very good. I think that Lucy Liu makes the perfect Watson, which I never would have guessed before the show began. I look forward to more episodes.

By the way, I also really enjoy the opening sequence.

Bite your tongue!

Irene will, of course, be played by Chelsea Handler . . . .

I will conserve space by simply seconding everything you've said, Spot's Meow (...including the Goldberg Device used in the show's opening)!

Now that they have his arch-nemesis waiting in the wings, an already surprisingly good show will potentially get even better...

I'm pretty sure that we already saw Moriarty a few episodes ago.

Damn, must've missed that... :confused:

^ No, Moriarty has not yet been seen on Elementary. Moran/M was not Moriarty.

So's Mark Gatiss on Sherlock, but it works out anyway.

Both shows constantly take a ton of liberties, but at the same time they try to live up to the name. If they continue to keep this in mind, it shouldn't be a problem.

Is it just me or does Jonny Lee Miller mumble his lines sometimes? I also notice that the sound level seems to drop when he speaks. I've seen it on several different tvs and cable services and it happens every episode. It seems to be something with the show because I don't notice that happening on all the other CBS shows I watch. Other than that I love the show. I think that Lucy Liu is doing a really good job as Watson.
