Elementary

The most influential of all fictional crime solvers, Sherlock Holmes, has found a home in modern day New York, and it suits him to a tee. The highest rated new series of the 2012-13 television season, CBS’s Elementary, created by Rob Doherty, seamlessly blends Arthur Conan Doyle’s celebrated creation into a contemporary police procedural format. Jonny Lee Miller portrays a recovering addict with brilliant and methodical powers of deduction, helping the NYPD crack their most difficult cases with the nimble assistance of Joan Watson (Lucy Liu). Bringing a bit of urban smarts to the table is Captain Gregson (Aidan Quinn), a character mirroring an inspector introduced in A Study in Scarlet whom Holmes deemed "the smartest of the Scotland Yarders," who doesn’t always understand the super sleuth’s systematic approach, but whose department reaps the benefits of his genius. This eclectic team of crime fighters is rounded out by Detective Marcus Bell (Jon Michael Hill), a top-notch investigator with sharp intuition and formidable interrogation skills.
