    I would say the show has stuck pretty close to the original Holmes, and I'd be surprised if Moriarty is his dad. He'll definitely be a 'Professor' of some sort, and obsessed with Sherlock, but I don't see the dad thing.

    Dude marked it last week, but I agree, and glad I am not the only one that thinks so.

    His father was never even a character that is discussed at lengths in the works by SACD. So it has varied a great deal already. :)

    One thing I forgot to mention about the last episode… I realize this is a total nitpick, and trying to talk about realism in ANY fictional show is kind of silly.. but it's the thing that jumped out at me that made me suspend disbelief..

    It seemed ridiculous that someone in NY, even assuming everyone has cable or satellite, would be able to just watch (British) soccer at any time of a day going to a random person's house.

    I just started watching this.

    Is Aidan Quinn (the actor playing the police captain) related to Richard Widmark?

    The voice is almost identical.

    Elementary is coming back in April, and on Monday!

    Elementary Season 6 and Code Black Season 3 Premiere Dates Are Finally Set
    If I'm doing the math correctly, April 30 and 21 episodes makes it a summer series. But no complaints, I like this show, and I'll take 21 episodes any time.

    Also like the Monday night move. Sundays can fill up with cable shows, whereas Monday is a little slower.

    Been wondering what happened to this season. Glad to hear there’s a date for its return. And that they’re making pretty much a full season’s worth of episodes.

    Oh awesome, I didn't realize it was raised to 21 eps.. So then that means it's less likely this is the last season??

    Every season is its last season. I have no idea how it keeps getting renewed. Ratings are meh.

    [Aside: Actually, I do. I read where Elementary is huge in overseas syndication, enough money to pay to keep making them. I have no idea why, but I'm not complaining!]

    I am not 100% certain where it started - I think it was a weeknight at 10 - then they moved it to Sundays at 10 and it started late most of the time as most Sunday night CBS shows tend to do. I had it padded by 90 minutes most of the time!!!

    We've really enjoyed the show, but the writing has been all over the map and seems to go many directions.
    And being off air for a year or so does tend to kill interest. I mean, my God, its not Doctor Who ...
