Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) inflicts his rage on most who cross his path, and they usually deserve it. This anger stems from a special case that leaves him fuming. He's determined more than ever to solve it in this episode of Elementary. "On The Line" captures our attention, leaving us with a well-executed story that's easily one of the highlights of the...
"Blood Is Thicker" leans towards the murder-of-the-week formula, but isn't our main storyline. In this episode of Elementary, our heroes face a new set of problems that are the building blocks to a shake-up possibly by the middle of this season.
In "Step Nine," the premiere episode of Elementary Season 2, we were introduced to Mycroft (Rhys Ifans), the more patient and kind of the Holmes brothers. This week, he returns unannounced in New York City in "The Marchioness," much to Sherlock's (Jonny Lee Miller) dismay. With that comes a barrage of problems he would rather not face. His lack of comfort makes...
For the second time in the show's run, Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) step back and let a supporting character have the spotlight, as Captain Gregson (Aidan Quinn) deals with some family drama in "An Unnatural Arrangement." It's one of those situations where Gregson's story is a lot more appealing than the real mystery that unfolds throughout the episode.
"Ancient History" brings us through yet another murder of the week. It takes Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) through some story twists that bring us to a rather boring conclusion. At least this week's Elementary gave us a fun plot B that shows exactly how far Sherlock and Joan's friendship has progressed.
Is it just us or are more of Sherlock Holmes' (Jonny Lee Miller) associates getting tied up in criminal cases? This scenario happens again in "Poison Pen" when an old and slightly famous friend from his teenage years reappears as a murder suspect. This week's Elementary brings surprises that keep us on our toes and make it entertaining to watch.
The lives of Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Joan (Lucy Liu) get more complex when they take on a new case in this week's Elementary. In "We Are Everyone," they're on the hunt for a Julian Assange-type that brings us to one of the few episodes where they almost fail. Throwing a twist in the murder-of-the-week story is always refreshing, especially with Joan's pursuit...
Now that season two's moving forward, Elementary has eased back into its crime-of-the-week formula. "Solve For X" doesn't leave that big of an impression, but it does put a possible bookend to Joan's painful medical past.
After a summer hiatus we're still following the Americanized, but delightful Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) in Elementary. The second season kicks off in an intriguing way with "Step Nine." The premiere episode gives us a better look at how much Sherlock's changed and will continue to do so as the series progresses.
The first season of Elementary dealt with its fair share of kinks but gradually found its footing. Like every version of Sherlock Holmes, we encountered the inevitable mystery of the sinister Moriarty. The reveal of Irene Adler left Sherlock in shock, and many questions unanswered. Thankfully, our curiosity was quenched in "The Woman." And while "Heroine"...
In Elementary's two-part finale, nothing was as it seemed. Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) was reunited with the love of his life, while under the watchful eye of Moriarty. When Irene Adler (guest star Natalie Dormer) rises from the grave, it knocks Sherlock off his feet. But her return was nothing compared to Moriarty's next reveal. What did you...
The first season of Elementary is nearly over, but the games have just begun for Sherlock Holmes. "Risk Management" is a great starting point for the bigger battle that will erupt between Sherlock and Moriarty. It's filled with suspense that will satisfy fans of the show and bring in new ones. Warning: there are major spoilers in this review.
In this week's Elementary, Sherlock's determination to find Moriarty grows in "A Landmark Story." We're getting closer to the truth but the main characters, and part of the episode's story, is alienated as a result.
Sherlock Holmes becomes part of a crime in "Dead Man's Switch." On this week's Elementary, the consulting detective races against the clock to find a killer, who has a thing for blackmailers. He also faces a personal milestone with his sober-versary.
It's a pain to have wait for a good show to return after a break. But thankfully, it was worth it because of Elementary's latest episode "Snow Angels." It was a fun blend of Sherlock/Watson banter with a game of cat and mouse mixed in.
After a couple weeks away, Elementary returns with a new episode, and in some ways, a new Joan Watson. "Deja Vu All Over Again" is the beginning of her real detective work. Ms. Watson lands her first case!
"Possibility Two," the latest episode of Elementary, deals with Watson's tutelage as a detective. Plus, there's also some weird genetics stuff going on. It's great to see Watson develop her own deductions but the story's main mystery is a little dull.
Hooray, Jon Michael Hill's Detective Bell finally got his own episode! While "Details" is a little rough around the edges, Elementary's sudden turn of events with its main characters was enough to keep our attention.
This may be one of the strangest episodes of Elementary to hit this season. Sure, it has the necessary suspense to carry the narrative, but its "A Giant Gun, Filled with Drugs" ending that disappoints the most.
Not every episode of Elementary is a winner, but on Super Bowl Sunday, we enjoyed the latest chapter in Sherlock's crazy life. While "The Deductionist" isn't the best of the season, its cat and mouse game made it worth our time.
