    Watching and enjoying, although I almost didn't. I didn't plan on watching this show but gave it a one-off shot. I almost turned off the pilot within 15 minutes or so but stuck with it. It's probably one of my favorite new shows this year.

    Watching it in our household as well. Enjoying it as well, although the last couple of episodes have me confused - Watson's setting up scenarios where she'll no longer be the companion...

    that would kill half the dynamic of the show

    I like it. I am, however, worried that it will go the way of most shows of its type and dumb down his observation / deduction skills over time.

    Watching, but it's not must see. Can't stand Lucy Liu. Fast forward a lot of her scenes, especially if they only deal with his addiction and not the case.

    I watch anything Sherlock Holmes, and this is an interesting new take on it.

    Really? Are you seriously worried?

    Yeah, I assume that Lucy will not be leaving regardless of any plot element that points in that direction.

    Watching and enjoying it in our house. This show has kind of taken the place of The Mentalist for us. We loved Mentalist in the beginning, but lately we've been feeling like it's running out of gas. Elementary seems very similar, but somehow better. Maybe just because it's new.

    Since Watson has never spoken to Sherlocks father, it's likely Sherlock is his father and set her up from the beginning. Wouldn't be surprised if he tells her as much and offers her a permanent position.

    I'm sure all this is just to A) give them something beside the case of the week to talk about, and B) transition her from a putatively temporary position to a permanent one.

    I'm enjoying it for the cast, which is usually what I look for.

    I am really enjoying this show, and am developing a mad crush on Lucy Liu!

    HoosierFan stole my thunder, but one of the things that bugs me is when he is introduced to someone as "Sherlock Holmes" and there is not one iota of a reaction, as if the fictional character doesn't even exist in that world!

    I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be the case. The fictional character doesn't exist in that world.

    Yeah, it's 100% clear to me that there's no fictional Sherlock Holmes in this show's universe.

    Yeah, that seems kind of "Well, duh" to me...why would there be a fictional Sherlock Holmes in the universe where Sherlock Holmes's adventures take place?

    This show, after all, IS about Sherlock Holmes, albeit transferred to the 21st century.

    Or to use another phrase:

    No ****, Sherlock.

    I like it.
    I sometimes wish these shows would just get rid of the bumbling Police and have these characters as the authority figure, ala Columbo.

    I like this show, too. It is eeringly similar to Monk, but this show doesn't seem to have a person comparable to Randy, ie bumbling detective in love with Sharona/Watson. The cap'n's in each are atcually capable cops, it is just that Monk/Sherlock are better, but both of their supervisors realize this, too, but also realize the limitations of their geniuses. Neither Monk/Sherlock, nor their sexy assistants, will ever carry a gun.
