Arrests in Baltimore for illegal guns often lead to dropped charges or little jail time

'Elementary' (CBS)

Globe voters might just prove alert enough to single out this clever update of the Sherlock Holmes story that boasts well-matched leads in Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. Miller's Holmes is a former Scotland Yard consultant who lands in New York City to check into a drug rehab program, then stays on and resumes detective work while saddled with a sobriety companion in the form of Dr. Joan Watson (Liu). The procedural has a real cheerleader in David Hinckley of the New York Daily News, who calls it "the season's best new broadcast drama." Assessment: "I like 'Elementary,' and the Golden Globes love to recognize the Brits, so Miller will probably get something, and she's good too. It's a solid show but not a huge stand-out. I enjoy it."
