Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

This odd show is a combination of high-tech computer wizardry and Sherlock's trademark methods of observation, logical analysis, and elaborate explanations of the mystery at the end. Despite the potential for some interesting effects when combining a Victorian detective with a cyberpunk setting, the show mostly relies on clichés, both Holmesian and sci-fi, and has little new to offer. But the mysteries are intriguing enough to catch a viewer's attention, and it's fun to watch Holmes explain it all at the end with his customary panache. Not wildly exciting or dreadfully dull, this is entertaining enough to fill up a half-hour but nothing to write home (or Holmes?) about.
