Thoughts on Elementary

The last time I was this excited about a TV show was with The X-Files, and possibly Lost, but with the exception of these I haven't ever looked forward to a show this much each week as I have with Elementary. The last 3 or 4 episodes have been excellent - not because of the 'crimes' in the storylines - which in my opinion have taken a backseat to what we might call the story arc - but because of the character development, and of course the way the characters are being acted.

I've always liked Jonny Lee Miller so would have watched Elementary anyway even if I wasn't a ACD Holmes fan - but he is such an excellent choice. He plays it with just the right amount of straightness. I'm sure I will add more on JLM in future posts, but this is my first rambling on Elementary.

I can't claim to have seen Lucy Liu in much, if anything, before Elementary, and if asked before the series started what I thought of her playing Watson I'm not sure what I would have said. But... it's worked out great. Having a female Watson works and I'm growing to admire and respect Lucy Liu as an actor.

It's also nice to see the respect that's grown between SH and Bell. At the beginning Bell was probably thinking 'who the hell is this guy', but now they're working really well together. And then there's the Gregson relationship which I've read someone comparing to a father/son thing. I think that's an interesting concept and I'd like to explore that in more detail some other time.
