With Robert Downey Jr knocking it out of the park in theaters and Benedict Cumberbatch doing no wrong in the role across the pond, I wondered why the world needed another interpretation of Sherlock Holmes. Watching the Pilot episode of Elementary, I snickered at its cheeky bits and admired the performances of both Jonny Lee Miller as Holmes and Lucy Liu as Watson. Miller’s Holmes is very much in the mold of a Dr. Gregory House, a brilliant mind more concerned with the truth than convention. In fact, he’s a recovering addict and Ms. Watson has been assigned as his sober companion. Liu said that Watson uses her sober companion position to distract her from her own issues, but Holmes sees right through her. Find out why it’s moved up my DVR list after the break.
