Trivia

When Mycroft arrived in America he did so with the reason to open a new restaurant called Diogenes. This name was deliberately chosen to fits into the theme of the show. Diogenes was an ancient Greek philosopher associated with a group called the Cynics and was often pictured as a man carrying a lantern searching for just one honest man. He never found one and his search is not unlike Sherlock's. See more »

Love it!
4 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What House was to medicine, Elementary is to investigating. The writing is clever, fast paced and smart. Our eccentric lead "Holmes" instead of having a drug dependency for his gimp leg like House, is a recovering drug addict who is being observed by "Watson" to keep him clean. They writers really make an effort to spell out the deductive-reasoning details, and for the most part, its plausible, IMO. The plots snake thru twists and turns at a feverish pace and Holmes dedication is relentless. You get the feeling he behaves this way to keep him mind from allowing his addiction to regain control. Lucy Liu , who I love, is curiously restrained in her role to offset Holmes's incessant espousing. Her deductive skills are far less than Holme's but she brings medical expertise to the table. They have a unique but likable chemistry. It seems obvious to me that at some point Liu's character will be developed more and eventually Holmes is going to have some sort of relapse. I can only hope this show maintains this level of intensity without sacrificing credibility, but for now, IMO, its one of mainstream's networks finest.
