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 enjoy this show a lot actually. Couple episodes behind right now though. Only CBS show I like.

You ever seen Good Wife?

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.

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.

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

Great episode this week. Nice getting some backstory with Bell for once, and all of Sherlock's 'tests' with Joan were so funny.

Last night's episode was fucking incredible. Jonny Lee Miller's lower jaw deserves an Emmy. A legitimately great episode of television. I hope this slowly starts phasing out the more procedural aspects and finds a heavier dependence on serialization a la The Good Wife. This could easily become one of the best dramas on television if it worked at it.

Also, the season 2 premiere is filming in London, which is cool, and maybe also a sign about what's going to happen next week.

I never thought I'd say this, but CBS seems to be getting their shit together. It's nice seeing this and Good Wife get the respect they deserve. And POI, I suppose, but I still haven't watched that.

Has anyone been watching season 2? The most recent episode was probably one of my faves of the series so far. Loved all the eps with Mycroft as well.
Yep. Still love it. Haven't seen last week's, though everyone is raving about it and I'm excited. The character work has only grown more impressive as time has gone on.
