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.
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.
