Micah Erlich hires Holmes to solve urgently the robbery of diamonds in David Batonvert's Manhattan exchange from his world-reputed security firm's top-range vault model, the 'impregnable' Leviathan, before the news wrecks the manufacturer. Both men remember it was actually cracked once four years ago by a brilliant team of four, who were tried and jailed, but draw different conclusions concerning a connection, which Holmes has to revise while his investigation progresses with the help of his own consultants. Meanwhile he helps Watson deal with her unexpectedly visiting family rather then cancel her buddy job with him. Written by KGF Vissers

Great twist on a fascinating character
15 December 2012 | by cvyostSee all my reviews

While it can sometimes be a bit predictable (I've watched 10 episodes so far), I thoroughly enjoy Elementary.

The great twist? Lucy Liu as Watson.

The interaction between Holmes and Watson is wonderful and the show itself is enjoyable and entertaining.

I've read some negative reviews, however I base my opinion on the entertainment value. And Elementary does a good job - I hope the show will be picked up for a second season and we get a chance to see the characters develop.

If you're a fan of anything 'Sherlock Holmes' be sure to check out the BBC production called 'Sherlock.' Another good show.
