A new 30-second preview has been released for the upcoming CBS television series, Elementary, which features Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Watson. Check it out...

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. 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. However, the restless Sherlock is nothing like her previous clients. He informs her that none of her expertise as an addiction specialist applies to him and he’s devised his own post-rehab regimen – resuming his work as a police consultant in New York City. 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. Sherlock’s police contact, Capt. Tobias “Toby” Gregson (Aidan Quinn), knows from previous experience working with Scotland Yard that Sherlock is brilliant at closing cases, and welcomes him as part of the team. 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. Rob Doherty, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly and Michael Cuesta, who directed the pilot, are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.

Elementary will air on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS, starting this Fall.

This show is going to suck, just watch the BBC's Sherlock.

And of course there will be sexual tension between the Sherlock and Watson....
TheGambitFreak - 8/12/2012, 6:39 AM
I give it 2 seasons the it's cancelled.

I like miller and Lucy lu but this? Just one big MEH!

Also I wonder what benedict cumberbatch thinks about this considering they both worked together in Danny Boyles Frankenstein last year

I give it less a chance to make it to season two than I do that they'll bring Moonlight back.

Took the advice of some friends and watched BBC's Sherlock...fantastic. If I want to watch a modernized Sherlock Holmes, I'm sticking with that show. A MILF-y, asian Dr Watson just isn't enough to make me watch this one.

A skinny-ass Lucy aint enough to make me give a damn about this ridiculous adaptation. Having Guy Ritchie turn Sherlock Holmes into a dumb action film was bad enough.

@Jlabatman, hats off to you my kind Sir
edmundo - 8/12/2012, 7:16 AM
I give it 13 episodes. If I want Holmes give me BBC's Sherlock

6 episodes of Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Gatiss and Andrew Scott are better than 1000 episodes of any other Sherlock series... it seems it really is a case of quality vs. quantity with these two shows...
AaronianKenrod - 8/12/2012, 7:46 AM

I had exactly the same thought. Wonder if it came up in rehearsal.
Boyle360 - 8/12/2012, 8:19 AM
Is this a joke? WHY do we need another Sherlock Holmes?! There's already a TV series and a movie series!
Maia87 - 8/12/2012, 8:22 AM
Sherlock Holmes in New-York? Watson as a chinese milf? EPIC FAIL.
Scion - 8/12/2012, 8:57 AM
Liu has never looked hotter than in Lucky # Slevin, hands down
vanhelsing - 8/12/2012, 9:59 AM
no good really no good
imnotwearinghockeypants - 8/12/2012, 10:24 AM
Terrible. They may as well have exhumed Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's emaciated corpse to jam a baseball bat up it's ass and take pictures.

Well I like the promos so far.

BBC's Sherlock can only be seen on BBC America by most folks in the US. Given the long time between each series........well if they can maintain 20+ episodes then there you go.

Meh. I will wait til Bilbo is back in London. ;D
djohnpi - 8/12/2012, 12:19 PM

ronnie42 - 8/12/2012, 12:20 PM
Sorry but this looks pretty bland. I'll stick the bbc sherlock, not america attempt at ripping off the uk's version, made a terrible attempt at it.
legolad - 8/12/2012, 1:23 PM
Crap, it's gotten so bad with this whole Sherlock Homes fad going on, the Russians are making fun of it.

musashi - 8/12/2012, 7:04 PM
BBC Sherlock is awesome! This is shit! I've seen enough!
Ichaos - 8/12/2012, 10:17 PM
