What we said then: Jonny Lee Miller "nails Holmes' trademark arrogance and focus and infuses it with a measure of pure, simple fun" in CBS' "absolutely entertaining" Sherlock Holmes adaptation.

What we say now: There's no longer any reason to compare this American detective show to the U.K.'s "Sherlock" starring Benedict Cumberbatch: "Elementary" is just another predictable procedural that relies on its stars' (including Lucy Liu as Dr. Watson) compelling performances rather than clever writing to entertain 10 million viewers each week. Let's touch base again after the 150th episode.
