tellitslant: (tos - uhura - smiiile!)
I wasn't particularly enthralled by the pilot episode of Elementary, the modern American Sherlock Holmes series, but the two eps since then have kind of changed my mind. It's not great, but it's certainly not awful - it's a procedural, with all the attendant good and bad qualities, and not everyone is a white dude.

So far I have two main take-away points:
1. Lucy Liu as Joan Watson is a completely awesome badass and I heart her
2. Joan Watson/Irene Adler (in order to recoup the awfulness of Adler in the BBC Sherlock)
(2a. My mental fancast for Adler appears to have become Gugu Mbatha-Raw, though I remain open to other suggestions)
