I have no desire to watch Sherlock, but fell in love with Elementary from the Pilot, primarily because of the performances of the actors and the show's take on the familiar characters created by Doyle.
Wow, really? I quite like Elementary
but think Sherlock
is the better show. The interaction between the two main characters in both is startlingly good, but the Elementary
take is telling its own story and going its own way (which startede with Irene Adler and Moriarty). The two leads could have been called anything really. IMO.
If you don't want to watch Sherlock
, the same writer/producer is currently running Dr Who
, but also did Jekyll
, which I highly recommend, as a sample of what is possible.
