Generally I was wary of Elementary
upon first hearing of it.
Another attempt to cash in on the success of a currently popular British Television series (BBC's Sherlock
Another Americanization ala retread of a British property, where the original would do just as well if not better in its place.
And the capstone....
Another twist. This time Watson's a Woman.
And Yet... It's another take on Sherlock Holmes. I knew I'd at least be checking it out.
Flash forward to the present and BAM. Elementary
is one of the few new shows I'm following and probably in my top 3 of the current crop this season.
Just goes to show, it's never really the complexity of the idea, but rather the quality of the execution.
And I'm enjoying both Liu & Miller's performances quite nicely.
