“"Excellent!" I cried. "Elementary," said he.” [CROO] 

We'll be honest. The CBS drama series Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu doesn't get enough attention here on I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere.

It's largely because Scott and Burt haven't carved out the time to watch it. As a weekly series, there's much more to absorb than the three-episode series that the BBC produced every few years.

Fortunately, James O'Leary, a regular contributor on the IHOSE site, has made it his business to watch, follow, and dissect Elementary on behalf of all Sherlockians. And we welcome him to the show to talk about its strengths, its longevity, and how the writers are doing a wonderful job of engaging Sherlock Holmes fans along the way.
