Jonny Lee Miller stars as a rehabbing, modern-day Sherlock Holmes in Elementary (Thursday, 9 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), an extremely promising new crime drama that seems certain to please fans of all those other CBS crime dramas.
Sherlock, coming off some sort of a drug-induced crisis, has moved to New York City, where he helps the local police solve crimes. In this incarnation, Lucy Liu stars as ex-Dr. Watson, who babysits him during recovery.
Fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s work probably won’t recognize either character - and might complain about this adaptation - but it gets off to a very good start. Miller and Liu have the beginnings of what could be some very nice chemistry, and the crime-solving part of the drama is top notch.
The evidence indicates that "Elementary" is going to be around for quite some time.
