Amazed there isn't a thread for this show. Yeah, it's no Sherlock (what is?), but it's shot beautifully, both leads act their asses off (Miller especially; he mixes arrogant neuroticism and heartbreaking introspection so, so well), and it's just a hell of a lot of fun. No 'will they/won't they' from Miller and Liu, which is great as well. Man, this, Person of Interest, (some episodes of) Vegas, The Good Wife; seems like CBS is starting to realize they can make huge hits that are actually good shows. The procedural/serialized blend is starting to work in their favor.

Any other fans out there? Gotta be.

I need to give this show a fair shake. I'm just tired of CBS's shtick with churning in crime procedurals, that I hope that they are willing to make something compelling.

I mean, this is definitely just a procedural at its core, but it's Sherlock Holmes. He's arguably the most compelling character in the history of literature, haha.

They could do a better job of making the cases more unusual.

Watch this occasionally with my dad and it's definitely enjoyable. Miller kills it.

While miller is fantastic as Sherlock, it'd be nice to have a few more references to the mythology. It's very case-of-the-week at this point and doesn't so much to differentiate itself from any of the others on television.

I mean, while there's a lot of source material to work through, they're doing 22-24 episode seasons, and are a lock to be renewed; I'm not surprised they're taking their time to work through it. Sherlock had 3 episode series so they didn't really falter from burning through all the Irene/Moriarty stuff. If the CBS version were to do that, they'd quickly have to start making up more backstory, and I think the story would suffer much more if that was the way things were handled.

I've seen bits and pieces, but never a whole episode. What I've seen never drew me in enough.

I enjoy this show. The most recent episode was probably the best yet imo.

I think I've watched the first five or six episodes. It's decent. But, imo, the thing that lets it down is how it feels like they've made the characters around Sherlock less intelligent and observant in order to make him appear more so.

Yeah, there's definitely some flaws that exist due to it being on CBS, ^ being one of them.
