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.
Elementary may have taken a short break, but it doesn't feel like it did. It takes "The Red Team" a little time to get going, but once it does you're hooked. Between the case, and the conflict brewing between Holmes and Gregson, it was must see TV.
Elementary continues to surprise us with its fine acting, well-crafted stories and solid direction. It's easily one of the best shows to come out last fall. In this week's episode, "M," cracks begin to show on the worn-down consulting detective. Warning, there are spoilers below.
After a brief holiday hiatus, Elementary is back with all-new episodes. Thankfully the latest, entitled "Dirty Laundry," starts off on the right foot. It has consistent layers of mystery that make it the first great episode of the year.
The year's almost over and our DVRs are filled to capacity. Who knew so many shows would pique our interest? During the annual upfronts, we weren't impressed with most of the series orders. Everything was either too much, too little, or just plain boring. But once they premiered, we were pleasantly surprised. Somehow a superhero with no superpowers works. The millionth incarnation of a famous...
We've hit the 10th episode of Elementary,and it's a shame "The Leviathan" is anything but impressive. This week's murder mystery loses its luster well after the half hour mark. What the heck happened?
We're rounding the halfway point of Elementary, and because of that, you'd think it would cough up some of the season's weakest episodes. In "You Do It To Yourself," viewers were greeted with a number of delightful twists and turns. They'll make the most avid mystery fan scratch their head.
Every network drama has a few tricks they have to use, sometimes for each episode. While Elementary deals with the occasional formulaic concoction for their weekly mysteries, there's a lot more going on with its characters. They make the show more enjoyable as proven in "The Long Fuse."
This week's Elementary made some risky moves. "One Way to Get Off" almost shook up the dynamic between several of its main characters. As a result, we were given what's clearly one of the season's strongest episodes. Warning: Heavy spoilers ahead.
Every once in a while Elementary gives us an episode that lays the groundwork for an upcoming story arc. While "Flight Risk" isn't particularly Earth-shattering, it's a peek at how crazy Sherlock's world truly is.
Two steps forward, and one step back. While Elementary continues to carve out its own path as a modernized version of Sherlock Holmes, every once in awhile it's bound to slip. In "Lesser Evils," the bumps are smaller than in previous episodes, but they're still noticeable.
After a few weeks, Elementary's begun sprouting its wings to become a beautiful TV butterfly. This could be part of the period where it transforms from the Jonny Lee Miller hour to an ensemble. In "The Rat Race," both Lucy Liu and Aidan Quinn had a little more to do.
After wetting our appetites with Elementary, we're getting into the more cushiony episodes. These next few weeks will cement the show's tone and degree of difficulty in solving its mysteries. We have to admit, we're slightly concerned about how challenging they'll be.
TV watchers are on their "second date" with CBS' Elementary. So is everyone hungry for more? This week's episode, "While You Were Sleeping," provided some twists and turns, and proved (once again) that this is Jonny Lee Miller's show.
