'Elementary': Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu retell Sherlock Holmes
Miller is our new Holmes, an eccentric character who helps cops solve crimes via an unconventional relationship with law enforcement (how unusual for CBS), and Liu is a former surgeon-turned-sober coach for our unpredictable hero.
In theory, it sounds too similar to be able to love both shows, but after watching footage from the new series, it seems there will be plenty of room on TV for both mystery-solvers. It's got a dark but accessible vibe, perfect for CBS. Plus, Miller gets to use his actual British accent (so charming) and although Liu seems like such a bubbly, likable person, she also seems 100 percent comfortable with her more serious side.
