NYPD detective Javier Abreu is delighted to have his weird English friend Sherlock Holmes on the case of robbery-victim Dr. Richard Mantlo's apparently missing wife, whom Sherlock finds slaughtered in a safe room she has installed secretly. Sherlock, recently out of drug rehab, makes the best of 'buddy' nurse Joan Watson, hired by his wealthy London father, actually a disbarred surgeon whose people skills he can use. Sherlock quickly proves it's the work of a trophy-hunting serial killer, but finds his prime suspect the next victim. Written by KGF Vissers

A pilot that doesn't leave you craving for more.
25 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

In contrast to what you would expect from a Sherlock Holmes TV show (as the British equivalent is doing superbly) this show isn't clever. Neither writing nor directing really manage to captivate you, and the soundtrack doesn't help create good atmosphere neither. Worst of all the acting. Lucy Liu is OK, and the fact that i like gorgeous Asian women is the only thing that will make me watch at least one more episode. The very first scene introducing Johnny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes leaves you wondering why he was chosen for the role. Maybe the poor writing denies him a better performance. The rest of the cast doesn't really convince either. All in all you're left with a disappointing pilot, which can't compete with other shows of the genre.
