    Just keep her away from Mycroft. They have zero chemistry together and it’s really hurt the show, the friction between Holmes and Watson.

    • GeoDiva says:

      Agree.. however she did a good job directing that episode last season.

    • Zepp OnAir says:

      I agree 100%, Jason. These cases of possible hidden passions Watson with Mycroft, serve only to irritate, increasingly, the audience, at least that’s what I think. The show is great without these ridiculous cases between the two, and if they insist, they are sure it will ruin everything.

    • JJM says:

      I couldn’t agree anymore. Their scenes in bed make me want to puke.

    • RigaToni says:

      I agree 150%. I think Rhys Ifans is super super sexy but Mycroft is UGH. When Rhys is trying to be Mycroft, he can’t also be sexy. It’s gross. They are the opposite of chemistry.

    • Nicole says:

      100 x THIS.

    • Moment says:

      The Mycroft stuff was painful to watch. Literally the end arc bored me to tears, which likely reflected in the drop in the ratings, people just don’t care or find him interesting enough.

  2. Mitra says:

    Apparently Watson is going to be replaced by Kitty Winter. I only hope that it’s going yo be a very temporary arrangement, as Watson, especially Lucy Liu is crucial in the show. The chemistry and the very nature of the relationship between Sherlock and Watson was what gave Sherlock the soul searching drama on the one hand and the impetus for a female counterpart of Sherlock to master the art of deduction. This show will loose its originality without an Asian female Watson.

  3. Everything is very open with a precise explanation of the issues.
    It was definitely informative. Your site is extremely helpful.
    Many thanks for sharing!

    I really want her back regularly! I do not care for the addition…..
    The chemistry is gone and I may be too. Ashcroft as written in the past can also be excluded!

  5. Lucy Steritz says:

    lucy liu needs to come back more as watson . the new girl is not only vapid, but definitely not much of an actress. Mycroft was bad enough, but are they trying to sabatage the whole series with all these uninteresting characters?If this keeps up, they can make this the last season . we also need more of Aidan Quinn. Another Lucy

  6. Linda Lee-Caliman says:

    Lucy Liu was the reason I watched Elementary. I didn’t like Mycroft either, and the new woman is boring. The chemistry between Sherlock and Watson was excellent. Not sure I will continue to watch. Very disappointing.
