With as much love being said for the BBC Sherlock show with Benedict Cumberbatch, this show is actually a far more entertaining modern take on the beloved Sherlock Holmes character. Jonny Lee Miller is exceptional as Sherlock and Lucy Liu as Watson balances his character brilliantly. Sherlock is a recovering addict living in New York City and Watson is hired to be his live-in sober companion. Soon she is his protg and they are working together to solve a new crime every week. This show is far more of a procedural, but the cases each episode still feel unique and interesting to keep your interest until the end.
"ELEMENTARY, a contemporary take on the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes who investigates crimes in modern-day New York City as a consultant to the NYPD and is assisted by Joan Watson, a former surgeon, who is hired by Holmes' wealthy father to help keep the eccentric detective sober.
