Exclusive Elementary Video: Sherlock Offers Watson Some Text Education

Get More: Exclusive, Video

“IMLTHO.” According to CBS’ Sherlock, that texting acronym should be, well, Elementary.

In this exclusive video from Thursday’s episode of the hit drama (airing at 10/9c), Holmes and Watson have a dispute over, as Joan puts it, his “borderline indecipherable” communication skills.

Teens should love the investigator’s pro-abbreviations argument, but his sober companion is not too keen on it — or the fact that he can decipher that she met a handsome man just by the way she’s wearing her hair.

  • Now that he mentions it, she does look better with her hair up.

  • Sherlock’s right, texting is more efficient!!

    I know that they’re never going to put them together (and they shouldn’t), but I’m kinda liking them as a couple.

  • Loving the show too and find the interplay (that’s the right word, right ?!) between the two main stars just fascinating – defn making this show multi-rewatchable unlike many-many others out there. I’ve my fingers crossed for a couple of two-parter eps in the future.

  • Really enjoying the show… thankfully so different from the Cumberbatch Sherlock! Was not previoiusly a fan of Lucy Liu but honestly she is growing on me, and her interplay with JLM is wonderful to watch. He of course, is fabulous!

  • Personally, I hate text speak (as well as the phrase “my bad”)! Then again, I’m an English major. I’m definitely with Watson on this matter.

    • I’m not crazy about text speak either. I’d be happier with this show if Sherlock wasn’t so messy.

  • ahh this show is actually really growing on me, at first I thought it would just be another mentalist (which is fine, because I love the mentalist) but it’s really getting good!
