The erratic, unpredictable, and intellectually incomparable detective Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) cracks case after case for the NYPD with the help of his ever-reliable partner Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu). The balance of this time-tested team shifts as Holmes and Watson face difficult personal choices and impossible crimes. From a murderous drug gang to a rogue intelligence agency, the threats have never been starker. And from snake-venom-laced meals, to invisible gunshots, to a superbug in New York's water supply, the methods have never been stranger.
Bitty Season but still high quality.
- Elementary: Series 5 review by RP
Another consistent season with Holmes and Watson. Nice to see the return of some popular characters from the past if only for a few episodes. The episodes are on the whole up to the normal fast paced and head scratching quality although the ark in this season is a little underwhelming. Nelsan Ellis who plays a pivotal part in that ark sadly died soon after the completion of the series and left behind a memorable piece of work. Didn't quite capture my interest of previous seasons but the high quality is still there to enjoy even if the plot devices were a bit clumsy and awkward (the reason for Homes drastic haircut for instance). Enjoyable nonetheless.
