Decided to make this thread because everyone in the Sherlock thread was getting annoyed at me (I'll leave them to discuss Sherlock/Doctor Who fanfiction). :ninja:

The first series is currently 5 episodes old, and, I have to admit, a lot better than I thought it would be.

Any other fans out there?

Not all of them are as uncreepy as you :D This can be the normal Sherlock thread, haha.

I'm watching the 5th episode now. It's cool because there's loads of medical stuff in it, and it's like Sherlock combined with House, one of my all time favourite shows :P

Hey, it's something to do while we wait for more Sherlock :P

They say Moriarty wrong.


Has he come up yet? I was just thinking as I was starting this episode that I hope he turns up soon.

:lol:

Ep 5 is the one with the patents dying of heart attacks? I guessed who it was within 2 minutes of seeing the guy, but still a very good episode!

I don't think he will, they're not sticking to the ACD storylines the same way Sherlock does.

I'm pretty sure I know who he is, I'll tell you if I'm right in about 20 minutes :P

It'd be pretty hard to directly adapt them for American TV. The premise they have works though.

I don't know, but I know Americans love to say Moriarty in a really dodgy way and it gets to me :P

I was right :D I suspected him immediately because he's a pretty famous actor.

Yeah, it was a bit of a give away to get an actor famous for playing bad guys :lol:

I've just started to get more into this series. I still prefer Sherlock, but I think that's because they're longer.

I agree, Sherlock is better. This feels almost like another CSI spinoff. It's a bit more fluffy and throwaway. That said, most American shows are. But it's still a very solid show, and quite entertaining.

Yeah, my first reaction to it was that it felt more like any other crime show.

I really need to read some Sherlock Holmes books...

Same, for all I love all the shows and movies I've seen based on them, I've never read a single book. Which is most unlike me.

I watch Elementary. I started watching it because I like Jonny Lee Miller and was curious how they were going to 'American-ize' (butcher) Sherlock Holmes.

The show is very formulaic, like most of the crime dramas. It has the same production value/vibe as the other CBS line up shows like NCIS and CSI. You can really tell that it's network TV.

Other than that, I like that they're trying to develop the characters more than just give us cheesy plots. Because of this, it's better than I had expected, and I'm still watching it.

(Sherlock is 100x better)

Obviously :P

I think a lot of American shows are trying to do that now. People are getting sick of the dumbed down CSI's and are trying something a bit more British.

I lthink this is a pretty solid show, but I think Sherlock is a gazillion times better XD Benedict is my Sherlock <3 I must say I like Elementary WAY more than Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock, his Sherlock interpretation is too Hollywood for my taste. Robert is Tony Stark, Jude Law and Martin Freeman are also very good Watsons.
