I gave up on Elementary after one episode but I might check back someday even though I was spoiled on Moriarty.
I gave up half way through season 1 and watched the yawntastic season 1 finale and season 2 opener.

Beautifully shot? Boringly shot. Uncreative, TV of the week kind of shooting. Beautifully shot is what 'Sherlock' is.
Characters in Elementary are (to me) boring and plot arcs are dragged out over a very long season. The Moriarty arc in season 1 went on and on. One character after another was thought to be Moriarty until they died and the supposedly real Moriarty showed up until they died. Didn't TV do boring shit like this in the 80s and 90s when it was at least fresh storytelling.
Been burning through season 2 over the last couple of days and it feels like a big step up over the already solid first season. Its well worth a watch and Holmes is a little more social in this one but it does keep homages to the source material.

Re: Sherlock - Series 3

I have to say that overall Sherlock is one of my favorite shows and I absolutely loved series 3. I really enjoyed the character moments and I didn't feel like it lacked detective work all that much. I'm sure I'll be pilloried for saying this, but personally I feel the only episode that has been bad was the season 2 finale, "The Reichenbach Fall." There was some good acting in that one, but I didn't buy the plot for a minute. All the way from the police arresting Sherlock with no evidence to the finale which seemed basically impossible, that plot was just full of holes. Moriarty's plan was ludicrous.

I was hoping they would give an explanation in series 3 that would make that episode make sense, but the pretty much just jerked your chain for 3 episodes. At this point it's probably best that they just forget that fall happened as there is no real way to logically explain it.

Since Moriarty seems to be still alive and a minor or even major plot point in series 4, maybe they retcon, ahem, explain the Rise in that series?

Anyway, since we have to wait till 2016 or later, we still have Line Of Duty to fill some time. Or Luther.
Or EastEnders.
