@kenneththepage I'm not that big on Sherlock Holmes as well, I haven't even seen the Sherlock Holmes movies by RDJ yet, I usually prefer the mainstream detective shows..

The deduction skills of this version of Sherlock are just too absurd for my taste, it's pretty much science fiction if not fantasy .. I understand this is a fictional character but come on, if you are setting this character in a real world then at least some real world common sense should apply to it ..

No amount of knowledge in the world could make a human being find out every little detail about your life by looking at you for a mere second, I know Sherlock as a character is supposed to be a very special and intelligent detective but this version of him is just too far fetched .. I hate any kind of media that tries to take the viewers for granted and make them look like idiots, it seems millions of people do enjoy that but I personally don't ..

This is why I love Elementary, beside the elaborate stories, writing and acting, Sherlock there isn't an alien with super powers, he has faults, he doesn't deduct things out of his ass, his deductions actually make sense most of the time and not nearly as far fetched as the Sherlock here.. one major plus also is having Lucy Liu as Watson!! and surprisingly she fits perfectly.

I highly recommend you give elementary a go, when I 1st discovered it I watched the whole 1st season in 1 go (had too much free time) and was blown away, couldn't wait for the next season..

@Foaman I've never tried Elementary but I have considered it :) The whole Sherlock Holmes story or whatever you'd call it isn't of extreme interest to me, but it does seem like the far better choice of the two!

I was equally disappointed as you. I watched the first two seasons and enjoyed only one or two, and haven't even bothered with the third. It's really just boring, most of the time. Glad to see someone else share my opinion!

@kenneththepage I recently started watching it and this is exactly how I feel, both main actors are great and all but everything else in the show is mediocre, some of the supporting actors/extras are awful (or were written that way), some of the dialogue is very cheesy and the Moriarty character they introduced here has to be the worst depiction of him I have ever seen, terrible acting or maybe call it over-acting, terrible lines, everything about him is just too cheesy..

I'm very disappointed with the show tbh, the Sherlock in Elementary has been much much better than this in terms of cases, story, script, acting, characters and actors..
