Following his fall from grace in London and a stint in rehab, eccentric Sherlock escapes to Manhattan where his wealthy father forces him to live with his worst nightmare – a sober companion, Dr. Watson. A successful surgeon until she lost a patient and her license three years ago, Watson views her current job as another opportunity to help people, as well as paying a penance. Holmes resumes his work as a police consultant in New York City and Watson has no choice but to accompany her irascible new charge on his jobs. But Sherlock finds her medical background helpful, and Watson realizes she has a knack for playing investigator. With the mischievous Sherlock Holmes now running free in New York solving crimes, it’s simple deduction that he’s going to need someone to keep him grounded, and it’s elementary that it’s a job for Watson.

Ain't no Sherlock, but it is entertaining when you're in a drought.

I had to get through the first half of the first season, after that I couldn't stop. For me a new twist on the Sherlock Holmes story and the female Watson really makes it different. The relationships between the character are great to see.

To me, this one probably the most likeable Sherlock Holmes. He is difficult, but still has an actual personality. I love Lucy Liu as Watson, it's a nice view of the classic story.
It keeps the quality through the seasons, so I'm always looking forward to new episodes.
