My Take On…Sherlock in London and the ELEMENTARY S2 Premiere

One of my favorite new shows from last season’s new crop was ELEMENTARY, starring Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as his companion, Joan Watson.  What started as a solid pilot with great chemistry between the leads (platonic chemistry, which is wonderful), turned into a can’t-miss season featuring ups and downs, and some really great work by a cast of my favorites.
