When I first saw the promo for this, I along many other dead loyal "Sherlock" fans shrieked, "NOOO!!! Sherlock does not live in New York, Sherlock does not have tattoos, Sherlock does not sleep with prostitutes, Sherlock is not a druggie, and Sherlock. Is Not. Johnny Lee Miller!!!" After stubbornly ignoring Elementary's existence for months I eventually came around and agreed to at least watch the pilot episode, just to further more bash on it. I was actually... pleasantly surprised. It wasn't that bad. It was actually... pretty good. I actually loved the idea of Watson being a girl, but I was worried about Lucy Liu's portrayal. I had nothing to fear. She was AMAZING. And Johnny Lee Miller? He's no Cumberbatch, but he's still respectable. This show is funny, clever, violent, and intriguing. My concerns are already mentioned above: Sherlock is a recovering druggie, and he is casual about sex/language. It's a crime show so of course there's violence. Other than that... I actually like this show. If I ever had to choose between Sherlock and Elementary, however - no doubt, I would still take Sherlock. But if, or rather, when, I need to feed my "Holmes Hunger" while waiting for Sherlock season 3, I now know where to turn to.
