Storyline

Lacking reported major crimes, Holmes Sherlock listens in to the police radio and rushes to a suspicious business jet crash, chartered by a law firm. He soon proves that one lawyer victim was in fact murdered earlier and elsewhere with a missing wrench and tests various theories about motives and opportunities involving law - and air firms. Sherlock rightly dismisses Watson's insistence to attend a dinner with his visiting father as never going to happen and pulls a clever-cruel prank, then makes up by confiding something that slipped out from his private past.

Did You Know?

Goofs

On the cockpit voice recording the pilot of the crashed plane reports that it had "three souls on board" even though four bodies were found in the wreckage. The crash investigator suggests that the pilot was not including himself in the count. However "souls" is a specific term used in the aviation and maritime industries to refer to the total number of people, both passengers and crew. An air crash investigator would have known this.

Sherlock tries to be too cool
20 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like this series but it seems every Sherlock Holmes character actor has a bad attitude.

Johnny Lee Miller is a great actor. You can see the difference in his acting in Eli Stone series. In that series he is polite, calm, well spoken and clean shaven. In Elementary he looks like a bum, talks out of the side of his mouth and exaggerates a accent like someone from the UK. Eli Stoned oes not have an accent.The actor that played Sherlock on BBC--Benedict Cumberbatch. stinks.I think Cumberbatch is the worst Sherlock Holmes.

These actors that play Sherlock want to impress on us their unusual personality but they do it with talking too fast, rudeness, acting like everyone is stupid but them and ignoring others opinions in the cases.

The stories in Elementary are a modern day crime story, very different.

Lucy Liu plays Dr Joan Watson - is a good actress in this. She plays a serious person hired by Sherlock's father to monitor him from taking drugs. The old Sherlock Holmes series never emphasized drug use accept the ones with Jeremy Brett.This drug issue takes away from the story and personality of Sherlock Holmes.

I do like Johnny Lee Miller and I will continue to watch it I just hope they clean his character up a bit.
