  Elementary: The Complete Series  

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 9/15/19

I'm still mourning the loss of this show. It's one of my all-time favorites. I'm glad to have this set, so that I can go back and enjoy the series all over again. I was quite pleased that CBS sent it to me.

I'm a lifelong fan of Sherlock Holmes. I've always loved any movies or TV series about Sherlock, and I've read all of the books. (I haven't seen all of the old British Sherlock episodes yet, though...) CBS's version always seemed like the bastard stepchild of the Sherlock Holmes genre, since the PBS series "Sherlock" seems so much better. Well, part of that is because they only film a few episodes per year. "Sherlock" has been around for 9 years, but there are only 15 episodes. That's it! Total. They win all the awards, but guess what? It's much harder to keep that kind of greatness going for 20 or more episodes per year. Even so, Elementary has been a very good show for 7 years. It's a shame they couldn't give it a few more years.

I love good mysteries, and that's one of the things that's the best about this show -- watching Joan, Sherlock, Marcus and the Captain crack the cases. The personalities of the characters, and the top notch acting, don't hurt, either. I just love Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller, and their characters' relationship over the whole series, and how it evolves.

You should make sure that you watch this series if you missed it on TV. It's excellent and might become one of your favorite shows, too. The DVD set has a lot of fantastic extras.

I'm not crazy about the bright yellow color of the DVD set. I guess they wanted to make it eye-catching. Also, it's a bit expensive at $75. I think it's worth it, though, given the number of episodes, and all of the wonderful features.


Elementary: The Final Season, Elementary: The Complete Series

Street Date: September 17, 2019

Format: DVD

Description: ELEMENTARY stars Jonny Lee Miller as Detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson in a modern-day drama about a crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD’s most impossible cases. Initially sober companion and client, Holmes and Watson’s relationship evolved into a symbiotic professional investigative partnership. Once the top homicide consultants for Captain Thomas Gregson, they worked regularly alongside Detective Marcus Bell before Holmes’ false confession to a murder he did not commit forced them to move to London. Holmes and Watson forge new careers in England as consultants for Scotland Yard until they receive news that a member of their inner circle has been gravely wounded in the United States. As Holmes’ stateside legal trouble threatens to keep them from returning to New York, their greatest foe to date, tech billionaire Odin Reichenbach waits on the horizon to test their limits.
