Stars: Johnny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu
Elementary is a noughties version of the ever-popular Sherlock Holmes genre. Miller stars as Holmes and Liu as his companion Watson.
Miller as Holmes is a brilliant piece of casting that is worthy of many an award, his off the shelf, eccentric behaviour is pure genius, Liu is fabulous as a foil and partner in solving the crime, she also does her very best to keep Holmes on the level.
Each episode has a different crime that must be solved but in the background, the story continues. The episodes are brilliantly written and superbly acted.
