TV review: CBS’ ‘Elementary’ can’t quite escape from ‘Sherlock’s’ shadow

By Ashley Bergner/Box Office Buzz

I’ll admit I was somewhat skeptical about CBS’ modern-day take on Sherlock Holmes. The show, which is called “Elementary,” premiered last night and features Holmes as an ex-Scotland Yard consultant who’s living in New York City. Regardless of what CBS officials might say, it’s clear this show is (right or wrong) an attempt to take advantage of the famous literary detective’s recent spike in popularity. The concept of CBS’ show is fairly similar to the BBC’s “Sherlock,” which is set in modern-day London and stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes.

As an avid fan of “Sherlock,” I was afraid “Elementary” was simply an attempt to “Americanize” the BBC show. Still, I tried watch “Elementary’s” pilot as objectively as possible and judge it based on its own merits. However, I have to confess the pilot fell just a little bit flat for me. It’s different enough from “Sherlock” that it unfortunately doesn’t share the BBC show’s strengths, and yet it’s similar enough that it can’t escape from “Sherlock’s” shadow.

Get ready for the CBS Holmes series that pissed off Steven Moffat

Are we ready for the American Sherlock HolmesBy Trent Moore, Source: Blastr.com

Ever since the BBC hit it out of the park with its awesome, modern-day reimagining of Sherlock, the classic detective has become a much hotter property on the small screen. The folks at CBS have been trying to get in on the action for a while now, and developed their own Holmes reimagining Elementary in the meantime. So did the U.S. edition of Sherlock Holmes make the schedule?

Why yes, it’s Elementary, my dear Watson: CBS has decided to pick up the modern-day detective series for a season order. The series stars Jonny Lee Miller (Eli Stone) as Sherlock, Lucy Liu as a lady-version of Watson, with Aidan Quinn (Prime Suspect) signed on in a recurring role.

“Jericho” Gets a Season 4 from IDW in July

Jericho is back for Series 4by: CBR News Team Editor, Source: CBR.com

The CBS television series “Jericho” debuted in 2006, and detailed the story of Jericho, Kansas following a major nuclear attack on the United States. Despite being beloved by fans, CBS canceled the series after its first season. After CBS received more than 40,000 pounds of nuts from motivated fans, the network reversed its decision to cancel “Jericho” and the series gained a second lease on life. While the show was canceled after a seven-episode second season.

Things looked bleak, until the series received a renewal of sorts — a comic book designed to act as the show’s third season. Originally published by Devil’s Due, IDW Publishing took over the rights and finished out the series. Now, IDW has announced that “Jericho” lives again, with “Jericho: Season Four” on the way in July from writer Kalinda Vazquez and artist Andrew Currie. The series features covers by Tim Bradstreet, and, like “Season Three” will be overseen by the show’s writers. Continue reading ““Jericho” Gets a Season 4 from IDW in July” »
