There have been many interpretations of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, the famous fictional crime fighting duo from the works written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, both on television and in the movies. Today, especially, there is the question of which 21st century Sherlock Holmes is your favorite on TV, whether it’s Elementary‘s Jonny Lee Miller, or do you prefer the performance of Benedict Cumberbatch, aka the busiest actor in the world, in BBC’s Sherlock. However, a more important and interesting question, despite whatever your preference may be, is which of these two versions of the infamous detective is the most like the traditional character of Conan Doyle’s books. Let’s compare the two series and find out. Miller’s Sherlock is a more current version of the consulting detective. He is portrayed as a recovering drug addict and former consultant to Scotland Yard. He assists the NYPD by solving crimes, »

Zippy dialogue and a sense of humour covers a multitude of Elementary's sins this week. Here's Frances' review...
This review contains spoilers.
3.7 The Adventures Of The Nutmeg Concoction
Between specious pumpkins, gardening with Dominicans, melting corpses and inflated genitals, this week’s Elementary was packed with fun lines - and true to form, Jonny Lee Miller didn’t let a single one pass by unnoticed.
It wasn’t only the dialogue that had a spark of offbeat humour about it; few are the detective shows that would solve crimes by having a cravat-wearing, cane-carrying gentleman with a coffee bean pomander sniff a bullet hole. Three cheers for The Nose, and while we’re at it, for the briefest of returns by Miss Hudson.
Heightened and macabre are two things Elementary does very well, and The Adventures Of The Nutmeg Concoction was full of gruesome oddities from its title right »

Something drastic needs to change in Elementary season 3 if it's going to become the show we all know it could be...
This review contains spoilers.
3.6 Terra Pericolosa
Though terra pericolosa may have the ring of a particularly nasty skin condition, the Italian title of this week’s Elementary translates as “danger zone”, somewhere we hope this consistently mediocre season isn’t heading.
I say hope, because Elementary still has all the potential for greatness. A string of unimpressive entries are no reason to give up on it now (though by the looks of season three’s dwindling ratings, many have done just that).
As one of TV’s most charismatic actors in one of fiction’s greatest roles, Jonny Lee Miller has earned our loyalty. The problem isn’t Miller, or Lucy Liu or Ophelia Lovibond for that matter, but the clumsy combination of their characters.

As part of the comedy tweaks on the night, the net will also be shifting “Mom” to a new 9:30 p.m. time period.
“Two and a Half Men,” which stars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer and is executive produced by Chuck Lorre, ranked as television’s most watched comedy for five consecutive seasons on Mondays from 2005-06 through 2009-10. Upon its completion, 262 episodes will have aired.
“The Odd Couple” will get a good launchpad, sandwiched at 8:30 p.m. between an original episode of TV’s top comedy “The Big Bang Theory” and the finale of “Two and a Half Men.” Starting Feb. 26, the newcomer will be followed by a repeat “Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” in its new timeslot. »

With Watson out of the way, this week's Elementary was the Sherlock and Kitty show. So how did the pair fare?
This review contains spoilers.
3.5 Rip Off
With Watson packed off on her Danish sabbatical-slash-sexcapade this week, a path was finally cleared for the Sherlock/Kitty partnership to be taken for a test drive to see what it could do. The results? Not thrilling, yet not entirely damning.
The problem with - as one commenter wryly put it last week - Elementary’s “our cousin Oliver” is summed up by Kitty’s response to Gregson’s question at the end of Rip Off. When asked what exactly she told the abusive cop to convince him that a move to Hoboken was the best course of action, Kitty coyly replied, “Does it matter?”.
Does it matter? Yes, actually. It does. The line may have made for a cute exit, but with »

The fall finales have begun, giving us plenty to discuss this week on the podcast. First we look at the week’s comedies, including another eventful Bob’s Burgers Thanksgiving episode as well as a double dose of Jane the Virgin. Next we talk a little reality and genre, including Simon’s catchups with Penny Dreadful and Attack on Titan and a Nerd Rage-inducing The Legend of Korra. Last up are the dramas, including another entertaining The Newsroom and the midseason finale of The Good Wife. Afterward, Noel Kirkpatrick from TV.com returns to the DVD Shelf to sing the praises of the lovely 2014 animated miniseries, Over the Garden Wall.
Language Warning: The Televerse is usually a PG-rated podcast but for various reasons (*cough* Nikelodeon and Korra *cough*), there are quite a few f-bombs lobbed during this week’s episode, including during the DVD Shelf.

Question: I've been a fan of Elementary, and I really liked the story arc last season with Rhys Ifans playing Mycroft. His involvement with Watson, moving to New York, opening the restaurant, concealing from everyone that he was MI6: The whole season seemed to give a fresh twist to the Sherlock history and move it forward. This season, however, with Kitty (Ophelia Lovibond), I'm not getting what the writers are doing. I think she's beyond boring, probably because she has no real reason to be there, and she's splintering the energy I used to feel between Sherlock and Watson, and each of them to Bell and Gregson. None of the episodes this year has grabbed me. Is it just me? Do they have a story arc buried in there someplace I can't see? I'd rather they »

English actress Natalie Dormer is best known for playing beguiling femme fatales as astute as they are alluring—currently as Margaery Tyrell on Game of Thrones, formerly as Irene Adler on Elementary and Anne Boleyn on The Tudors, as well as "The Blonde" who seduces Brad Pitt in The Counselor. “I love those women that I play that have sexual power," Dormer told The Daily Beast in an interview published today. "But I’m trying to step away from it for me, and for my artistic growth. It’s also more who I am. I’m not that woman." And »

This review contains spoilers.
All the best Sherlock Holmes stories start like Bella did. Not with the great detective covered in leeches and contemplating his pet tortoise (hey Clyde!), but with a client coming knocking. The best Holmes stories don’t, however, end like Bella did: on a cliff-hanger of a moral quandary.
Will we ever find out whether or not Holmes betrayed a fellow recovering addict to put a murderer behind bars? My money says we won’t, but the revelation’s immaterial because the point of the episode, like that of last week’s, was to explore Holmes’ peculiar personality. Is he man or machine? Warm-blooded creature or automaton?
To Sherlock, the AI programme represented an intellectual opponent rather than a mystery. Parcelling off the boring find-a-thief bit of the case to Watson, »
“Expect tragedy as well as adventure, that’s just how it goes," Mr Gatiss told the Radio Times. A while back, Steven Moffat similarly assured us the fourth series would be “devastating.”
"Just because it’s in the stories doesn’t mean it’ll happen in the series,” Mr Gatiss asked when questioned if he would follow the character fates of Arthur Conan Doyle’s originals, “because there’s an awful lot of changes and an awful lot of places to go and things to do."
“It should be clear by now that while, of course, Doyle is our absolute god, »
