Trivia

The creators of this show reportedly went to great lengths to potential copyright issues with the British series Sherlock (2010), which also re-tells the story of Holmes in a contemporary setting. One visual cue included as a nod to the British series is Holmes' scarf, which is worn the same way as it is in "Sherlock". See more »

A rare treat from the USA
9 January 2016 | by nij-chris-532-818683See all my reviews

This purports to be a take on Sherlock, migrated to modern New York and it does this very well. Sherlock is a true eccentric, Watson equally and entertainingly odd with the NYPD reassuringly stereotypical, adding balance. Jonny Lee Millar gives consistently outstanding performances full of quirky finger movements, twitches and sudden changes of direction - mental, emotional and physical. Watson is a bewildered soul mesmerised by Holmes, resentful of his offhand treatment of her, intrigued but unable to escape. Irene likewise is outstandingly good - another flawed character, riveting to watch. This series is a revelation, worth watching for JLM's performance alone. Worth 10/10 were it not for Watson's quacky delivery and Holmes' mumbling when thinking out loud but don't let this affect your enjoyment - just see if you agree. Absolutely brilliant.
