Stars: Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu, Aidan Quinn Writer: Robert Doherty Directors: Michael Cuesta Network: CBS, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 27, 2012 While CBS tends to play it safe from its procedurals to its comedies, it’s taken some pretty ambitious chances this season first with the exceptional VEGAS and now with ELEMENTARY. Both series feel like cable shows and despite having some familiar crime-solving elements, both have proven to be highly original and very entertaining. ELEMENTARY is an updated Sherlock Holmes story with the former Scotland Yard detective serving as a consultant to the New York police force. […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, January Jones, Aidan Quinn, Bruno Ganz, Frank Langella Writers: Oliver Butcher & Stephen Cornwell, based on the novel by Didier van Cauwelaert Director: Jaume Collet-Serra Distributor: Warner Bros.
