Amen! I have the Sherlock A Scandal in Belgravia episode on BD and have watched it several times. It is one of my all time favorite TV episodes, no matter the series. I loved luscious little Lara Pulver as the luscious and brilliant queen of the dominatrixes, Irene Adler, and fully understood Sherlock's fascination with her. That said, I think that Elementary got off to a great start. Johnny Lee Miller was wonderful as Sherlock and Lucy Liu was, as usual, nothing less than perfect. Any Sherlock Holmes story depends far more on its characters to retain our interest that it does the Mystery of the Week and Episode 1 of Elementary delivered in spades. I am on board for the foreseeable future.
