Full Season for Elementary!  
It was announced that CBS has ordered a full season of Elementary. The show has been doing very well in the ratings. Let's hope the ratings as well as the quality of this show remains up, up, up!

And yes, I'm going to review the 3rd episode as soon as I finish this midterm and grade some more papers.

Yay!

Does this mean I should get around to making a Joan Watson icon? Maybe. . . . (I wasn't really pleased with the most recent episode, but kids in danger really get under my skin.)

I need to do some icon hunting/making as well.

I wasn't really pleased with the most recent episode, but kids in danger really get under my skin.

The last episode didn't do it for me and was the dullest of the 3 so far. But still had a couple of moments that made me smile.

I found the episode a bit dark for my tastes, tbh. I got a bit panicky watching it, but I think that might have been part of my migraine. Or hormones. Anyway, I hope they keep things a bit lighter, as light as murder can be, and more about Holmes and Watson working together than Holmes being clever and Watson being...there.

I'm glad there is someone on my flist who is enjoying this apart from me! My closest fandom friend won't even entertain watching it, though a lot of that is down to behind the scenes stuff, and kind of regards me as a traitor for liking it!

At least I can come and squee about it here if I'm so inclined. I've just watched ep 4 (we get ep 2 in the UK tomorrow) and I've decided I love Gregson.

I think I need to get me an Elementary icon.

After episode 4, Gregson is finally on my radar as a great character. I'm glad they're not wasting Aidan Quinn.

There is literally no one in my RL other than my mother who will watch this show. Everyone else keeps rejecting it because of the other modernization and the gender/race swap for Watson. I keep telling everyone it works in a completely different way than Sherlock but no one will believe me!

Exactly.

My friend isn't too bothered about the gender/race swap thing (I admit I was sceptical about that initially, though I love Joan now) but something to do with the writing - rumour has it that a writer connected with Who was poached by CBS when visiting the Who set in the US. No way of proving this as apparently said writer has asked to have their name kept out of the Elementary credits. The Moff is apparently Not Pleased.
