E is for 'Elementary' (and Elephants)

Click to see theme
Elementary is one of my favorite takes on Sherlock Holmes. It is often compared to Sherlock, but I like both shows equally for very different reasons. I enjoy Elementary's take on Watson (played by Lucy Liu) better than Sherlock's, and I also like the relationship between the two of them much better. They each have a very different strain of humor, which I enjoy equally. Both Sherlocks are played by fantastic actors, coming at the character from different directions. Today, I'm going to do the gifs a bit differently.

I didn't have time to make a brand new gif just for the A to Z Challenge, so I'm just using gifs I created for previous animated-gif-recaps. These gifs best represent my favorite things about Elementary.
Sometimes, when Sherlock runs out of ideas, he'll try silly things such as eating his notes.

Watson is highly annoyed by some of Sherlock's antics,
but they have a great professional relationship anyway

Sherlock has the best facial expressions!

  7. I love Sherlock esp Benedict Cumberback, not the other guy who played Watson though. Planning to watch Elementary, thanks for the recommendation :)

    1. I love Sherlock and Benedict too! He's great, and the show is very good. The two shows are very different, and I really like both of them. Thanks for stopping by!

  10. This show is surprisingly good. Jonny Lee Miller is fantastic. While I like the BBC Sherlock, Miller's Sherlock is just great and works so well in the NYC setting with Joan Watson.

    1. I love finding others who enjoy the same shows. I tend to be a "social watcher." I like knowing that others are enjoying the same thing at the same time. :)

  11. I've watched this a few times. I like the two characters and their relationship with each other. This is a different take on Sherlock Holmes and Watson.
