Storyline

A former CIA operative is lured back to his old life when the NYPD needs his help to stop a serial killer. Dr. Dylan Reinhart (Cumming) is a gifted author and university professor living a quiet life teaching psychopathic behavior to packed classes of adoring students. But when top NYPD detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) appeals to him to help her catch a serial murderer who is using Dylan's first book as a tutorial, Dylan is compelled by the case, comes out of retirement and taps into his old skill set. Though Dylan and Lizzie initially clash, when it comes to catching killers, they realize they will make an ideal team if they both trust their instincts. Based on the James Patterson book.

Elementary Resurrected
19 March 2018 | by futuretypeSee all my reviews

The situation is similar to "Elementary" but brisquer with less rapport. Dr Dylan Reinhart (Alan Cummings) takes on the Sherlock role (without the mumbling) and Detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) fills in for Watson but there is a slight role reverasal with the Detective tending to be in charge. They follow a crime spree where cards are used as clues that require psychological insights. There is less involvement of other characters (no Adian Quinn role to report to but there is a female mayor) making the action move faster.
