NEW HOLMES. NEW WATSON. NEW YORK.
It would be a crime to miss Elementary: The First Season, which includes all 23 episodes released on 6 discs for the first time on DVD. This modern-day twist on the legendary detective finds Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) as a recovering drug addict, starting a new life in New York City as an NYPD consultant. By his side is his trusty "sober companion," Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu), hired by Sherlock's dad to keep the investigator on the straight and narrow. Sherlock rejects Watson's attempts to have him participate in group therapy and makes her life and job as challenging as possible. Meanwhile, Watson develops a flair for detective work, and discovers that following Sherlock's instincts lead her down a frustrating yet fascinating path. For those two strong-willed partners in crime-fighting, justice is elementary.

Thoughts from OHM:
We weren't familiar with this series before we popped it in the DVD player, but from about 10 minutes into the pilot we were absolutely HOOKED. This series is absolutely addictive. We love the modern-day Sherlock and Watson, and their chemistry is absolutely brilliant! If you've never caught this show, it's a MUST SEE! It's got absolutely everything in it!
