2cute4u^Then you're a better fan then me :) Okay saw the second episode€, now we are getting a taste of what the show is going to be like and it's promising. Tonight Holmes investigated a breakin/fatal shooting where the only person who could of done it has been in a coma for the last three days. duh duh duh! Earlier I complained about sherlock's two hour long tv movie format, but the I can honestly say I miss it. An hour (45 minutes seeing as this is created of a commercial station) just is not long enough to really set the mood and the show looks like it's going for the standard crime a week format. That said john lee miller and lucy liu have a good chemistry together despite the latter's role as a six week 'junkie sitter'£. So hopefully we will see more of their companionship blossom. Right now their relationship is too 'naughty school boy and tightly strung schoolteacher' for my taste. There's a great bit where

Just saw the second episode (I'm late, I know). On the one hand, I'll stand by my Dorothy L. Sayers comparison — I'm not sure I can articulate it, but I get that sort of vibe off the series. I think that might be part of why it feels less like a Sherlock Holmes adaptation. On the other hand, my argument that the murders in this series were more plausible just got less plausible.
2cute4uTo be fair it's a very different format. Sherlock never really was a whodunit, the focus was more about the intellect battle with Holms adversities then 'solving the case'. The how and the why of the crime was secondly to holmes's deduction of it. In Sherlock the characters and their abilities maybe be incredible but the story remains grounded to reality. In elementary the story lines are larger then life, but it's the characters who remain reasonable.

Addendum on the second episode: there's no reason for Yvette to make a miraculous recovery immediately after she was done murdering — were I her, I'd wait a few days to obscure the correlation. That said, Sherlock wasn't necessarily wrong about her intentions. I have to admit: I stopped watching the BBC Sherlock after the third episode. I felt like it was moving away from the stuff I liked from the first episode.

2cute4uThe later episodes never really did recapture a study in pinks sense of gritty realism or atmosphere of menace. but I'll stay on topic. One reviewer rather oddly criticised the show saying it was obvious which twin committed murder when is came out she had been sleeping with a married man. There's no plot reason for this it's just a rule on us tv apparently.

...weird. Did they name three other examples? Maybe it should be a trope page.
2cute4uNo but I'm sure we have a trope for it some where...

Good Adultery, Bad Adultery, maybe?
He's the Doctor. He could be anywhere in time and space.
As if.Oh my, I just fell in love with this series. Seriously. I freaking love it! I don't know why, it's just really great. And we're on episode three. That's some sign of good storytelling.
Just got around to watching the newest episode and it's gotta be said, this version of Sherlock is far more likable than Cumberbatch's, in a grow-on-you sort of way though he hasn't formed the deep bond with his Watson that C!Sherlock has just yet.
You know, I wasn't as fond of the third episode. It felt shallower, and Watson had a lot smaller part in the investigation of the crime. *checks IMDB* Sure enough, the third episode was written by a different writer. I hope this is not a trend.
IOU one titleOh fuck, I forgot to watch last week. Anything interesting happen?
...I have no idea how to respond to that.
UTINNI!Yes. Very much so.

IOU one titleSo, now Sherlock becoming more open, or revealing more about his life, or Watson about her life? Or anyt sign of a Moriarty?
It's mostly just the relationship between Sherlock and Watson growing. She's making him respect her - which isn't particularly easy.
2cute4uWith the last episode descenting into the dark territory of child predators I was starting to get worried if the writers knew what direction they want to take the show. Tonight's Rat Race proves such fears were unfounded. They really found the feet with the show. Tonight when lucy liu is worried when Holmes never back it from school on time she decided to go to the police. Rather then let the misunderstanding that she and him are a couple stand she go and breaks his confident that Holmes is a no good dirty junkie. What a Bitch. [[conti]]

I like the ending of the last episode. Holmes plays off Gregson quite well.
And again more proof that this is a kinder Holmes than Cumberbatch's, the scene at the restaurant where he sent the bottle of wine to to the the table where the guy had just proposed to his girlfriend, his sincere outrage at the bankers from the meltdowns a few years back and the deepening bond between him and Watson.
IOU one titleThis episode is why I like this Sherlock. His arrogance and drug addiction was a serious problem but he made up for it, and Watson actually figured something out.
