ELEMENTARY: THE FOURTH SEASON REVIEWED
“Elementary” has a gimmick that I hope is finally apparent to viewers. Each season we get a new relative or friend that tags along and spices things up. Then, they’re off to spin-off land or wherever these people retreat when the cameras turn off. Meanwhile, the show keeps existing as a pale alternative to everything Sherlock that currently exists. Miller and Liu are good enough and John Noble has a strong turn this year. It’s just a matter of NOW WHAT?
How much longer can CBS juice up the least of the Sherlocks? Well, we got the series’ take on The Hound of the Baskervilles this year. But, I liked it better when Sherlock did it in their second year. I hate to be that guy, but why watch something like this? If you’ve got an American fetish for British character actors forcing themselves into re-appropriated iconic roles, I understand. Actually, I don’t…I’m just trying to make you feel better.
