Michael Weston has made two guest appearances on Elementary (2012). That show portrays modern, New-York-City-based versions of the characters Sherlock Holmes and (originally John) Watson, both of whom were created by the real Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. See more »

Regardless of the Critic's reviews.. I love this show
4 July 2016 | by MysterybuffSee all my reviews

Honestly, this show is not supposed to make sense. It's suppose to entertain the view, and that's exactly what it does. Houdini and Doyle, send a time before ours, is really a great show. It's great entertainment for the family. I love the suspense, and their mysteries with a paranormal slant. I like American Houdini paired with proper Doyle. I admit that I do hid behind a cushion from time to time, so there is sufficient thrills. I like that is all wraps up in a hour. I also love how all the characters seem to know each other, that Houdini knows great inventors in America, and Doyle knows famous authors in England. I like that both men are likable. It's not a pretentious show. I feel that it can last as long as Murdoch mysteries, if done right. So far, great first season.
