Elementary > Elementary Review: A Worthy Remake? > Comments Page 3
Of all the new shows coming out this fall this was the one that caught my attention the most...I wasn't disappointed.
Loved it!!! Jonny Lee Miller is beyond fantastic not to mention pretty darn easy to look at!!! I really hope this new Holmes is embraced. It really is a modern new spin on a classic!
Over 50 years of reading, watching and collecting Sherlock had me a bit anxious about this show but I was hopeful that the cast was strong enough to pull it off. And they did! Let's hope the writers can scatter a little more traditional information through the stories. THAT is what has made the BBC version so successful in that the people who have followed these characters for decades can hear or see things that make us go, "it's still Conan Doyle's story" and be just as excited as the ones who watch it just to see Cumberbatch in tight pants. Now Jonnie Lee has created a character that will have him walking such a fine line of being quirky but not cartoonish that we will get to see if his talent is as powerful as he has been given credit for. His performance in "Trainspotting" was nothing to "Byron" and he was absolutely brilliant in both.
If he keeps up the way he started I'm gonna get really fed up with his hyper-babble real quick. He's not funny enough to make up for it, and Watson is a downer so she doesn't lift the mood either. The show was tiring to watch right on the heels of Person of Interest, too many changes of direction. We'll see after next week's episode.
am i the only one who doesnt care that this show is a remake of sherlock holmes? am just happy that lucy liu and Johnny Lee Miller got a show and its a PROCEDURAL! I love the show and am happy its on thursday at 10 because nothing else is one.
An impressive cast. I'm not a procedural fan but this show was intriguing enough to get me back for a second episode.
Good pilot. Interesting enough to keep watching. I'm not a fan of Liu's though.
