Check out the trailer for new CBS show ELEMENTARY which should start airing this Fall starring Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson in a modern-day drama about a crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD's most impossible
cases. Following his fall from grace in London and a stint in rehab, eccentric Sherlock escapes to Manhattan where his wealthy father forces him to live with his worst nightmare - a sober companion, Dr. Watson. A successful surgeon until she lost a patient and her license three years ago, Watson views her current job as another opportunity to help people, as well as paying a penance. However, the restless Sherlock is nothing like her previous clients. He informs her that none of her expertise as an addiction specialist applies to him and he's devised his own post-rehab regimen - resuming his work as a police consultant in New York City. Watson has no choice but to accompany her irascible new charge on his jobs. But Sherlock finds her medical background helpful, and Watson realizes she has a knack for playing investigator. Sherlock's police contact, Capt. Gregson (Aidan Quinn), knows from previous experience working with Scotland Yard that Sherlock is brilliant at closing cases, and welcomes him as part of the team. With the mischievous Sherlock Holmes now running free in New York solving crimes, it's simple deduction that he's going to need someone to keep him grounded, and it's elementary that it's a job for Watson.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Here's something adventurous: according to "MovieWeb" Alex Proyas (THE CROW, I, ROBOT and the unfortunately cancelled epic PARADISE LOST) will helm GOD OF EGYPT, which, set amongst the pyramids and sphinxes, tells the story of a common thief and a god on a magical quest. Bad news come from Disney: they have stopped production on THE ORDER OF THE SEVEN with Saoirse Ronan, which was supposed to be third Snow White inspired film this year. Due to bad and weak marketing of gloriously great sf epic JOHN CARTER earlier this year which lead to the film underperfoming in USA, Disney is not so eager to do huge epics, so this one will have to wait for better times. The story was supposed to centre on a woman in 19th Century Hong Kong, who flees from her wicked stepmother and finds solace with seven brave warriors. The men belong to a clan known for fighting dragons and demons.
ZERO HOUR TRAILER
The second new show for today is ABC's action adventure ZERO HOUR, which will have beloved ER star Anthony Edwards playing Hank Foley who
is no stranger to adventure. But this one is a little more than he bargained for. As the publisher of Modern Skeptic magazine, Hank has spent his career following clues, debunking myths and solving conspiracies. A confessed paranormal junkie, his motto is “logic is the compass.” But when his beautiful young wife (Jacinda Barrett) is abducted from her store, an antique clock shop, Hank gets pulled into one of the most compelling mysteries of human history, stretching around the world and back centuries. Contained in one of his wife’s clocks is a treasure map, and what it leads to could be cataclysmic. Now it’s up to Hank to decipher the symbols and unlock the secrets of the map,while ensuring
the answers don’t fall into the wrong hands. With his two young associates Rachel (Addison Timlin) and Arron (Scott Michael Foster) in tow, along with Beck a sexy FBI agent (Carmen Ejogo), Hank will lead them on a breathless race against the clock, to find his wife and save humanity.
As a fan of Jonny Lee Miller and Anthony Edwards, I'll be checking out both of those shows in the fall.ReplyDelete
I love them both too! They've both been underrated and need some spotlight!Delete
Wow...look at Anthony Edwards.ReplyDelete
Elementary looks good, I'll have to keep any eye out for that.
I like how Anthony got the lead role finally!Delete
oohh, Dezz, you found two gems today! They both look like they have lots of mystery in store for us along with action. I'm glad they are both on "big" channels.ReplyDelete
glad you like them both, Elsie :) Hope they won't disappoint when they start airing later this year ;)Delete
Johnny Lee Miller probably has enough charisma to get me to watch Elementary, though I really am a HUGE fan of the British version currently going, so it will be a tough comparison. And I'm not crazy about the gender switch on Watson. It adds a whole different sexual tension element to the relationship that could be distracting.ReplyDelete
Also, recently watched Miller in his naughty role of Byron and was quite impressed. I think he's sometimes underestimated as an actor.
Oooh, I've never thought about Lucy and Jonny possibly having a romantic fling in the show ;) It could be interesting.Delete
Jonny really is a good actor, has quite a lot of interesting British films in which he starred in. I actually missed the moment when he went over to USA to star in one of the big shows, I forgot which one, but I certainly like him. Except the fact that he was married to that ebil witch....
Well, maybe we can award him belated bonus points for having the smarts to divorce her when he did. :))Delete
yep, he escaped on time :) Before she started swapping blood vials with Billy Freak Thornton :)Delete
I really love your blog, before I came here I could never get into any shows or find ones on TV until they are already far into it. I'm getting prepared for all these great shows now :) I'm excited! Elementary looks really good, reminds me of House. I wanted to say thanks again for your feedback on my blog, I didn't change it just because I love the background too much LOL. Sorry I hope it won't ruin it for you, but I appreciate your input.ReplyDelete
oooh, glad to hear that :) I do try to inform people about films and shows months and sometimes even years before they actually appear in the screen ;)Delete
It's not a big problem, it's just that most people won't be able to comment at your place since it's difficult to see the link. You might try to move that central pic in your background somewhere left or fight so that it will be more visible and less problematic.
Wow I feel like a retard now, I didn't think of just simply moving it to another place as dumb as that sounds LOL. I thought, well Dezmond is right about the comments but I love this background too much to change it. This is amazing, thank you so much. I moved it to the other side so now the comments are visible AND I still get to keep the background. :)))))))Delete
LOL :) I'll pop over to check out the change :)Delete
Anthony Edwards - yep I'll watch thatReplyDelete
he is such a kind and charismatic face, isn't he?Delete
Zero Hour reminds me of national treasure, looks pretty goodReplyDelete
hope it will be very adventurous!Delete
Sherlock sounds like it might be kind of fun! :)ReplyDelete
it does :)Delete
Sherlock still not so sure on. But it doesn't look too bad I guess.ReplyDelete
Zero Hour though, that sounds like an awesome one. I've always like Edwards too. Revenge of the nerds..haha
we do love it when nerds get under the spotlights :)Delete
Except for Booger. All that nose picking just doesn't sit well with my ocd..hahaDelete
I'm kinda glad I didn't quite understand what you wanted to say here, cat :PPDelete
I enjoy any Sherlock show so Elementary has potential.ReplyDelete
it sure does, hope it doesn't get to creepy though...Delete
I'm guessing by creepy you don't mean Sherlock and Watson getting together ;)Delete
nope, I mean all the dead bodies and blood and such things that crime shows like to show a lot....Delete
I wanted to say something about Lucy Lu but I have to switch off now and run for my downstairs neighbor is moaning again. Like a bear.... Talk to you tomorrow, Dezz! Over and out.ReplyDelete
say hello to the neighbour in my name too :)Delete
Enough with the fairy tales already, Hollywood! Find something else to overdo!ReplyDelete
well, as you can see they're not doing the fairy tale :)Delete
After seeing Sherlock in the UK, I'm having a hard time not judging the two. However, I will, of course, check it out. It has MILLER!ReplyDelete
I've heard that a lot. It's funny how I never liked the UK version because I loved the old series with Jeremy Brett and he is the only Sherlock for me :)Delete
Hmm... Since that movie was cancelled I kind of want to go back and watch John Carter, haha...ReplyDelete
you won't regret it, it received amazing criticism even though it failed in USA, and it was a blockbuster around the world.Delete
Oh, John Carter was awful!! I don't blame them for canceling it based on that. Horrible!ReplyDelete
WTH? Are you nuts, Jaxy? JOHN CARTER was an amazing and beautiful film, and it was praised both by critics and viewers. If failed only due to negative marketing from fanboys before the premiere and due to bad marketing campaign from the studio, but you will not find a single bad review of it around the web. It was a beautiful film!Delete
I wonder what Professor Moriarty will look like in the modern sherlock holmesReplyDelete
we shall have to wait for the Fall to seeDelete
I love fairy tales, even retellings, but I prefer new ideas rather than rehashed ones. Still, I'd watch a good retelling.ReplyDelete
I hope I catch Elementary.
yes, new ideas are always better than doing something oldDelete
I'm not feeling "Elementary." I'm afraid that after Benedict Cumberbatch, there's only one Sherlock for me :)ReplyDelete
just like Jeremy Brett is the only Sherlock for me :)Delete
Looking forward to "Elementary" even though it sounds like a travesty!ReplyDelete
it does, they take a classic and turn it into something non-classy.....Delete
The Americans should be ashamed of themselves... why??? why?? Leave Sherlock aloneReplyDelete
blasphemy, Scottie, blasphemy it is...Delete
glad you think soDelete
Zero Hour sounds really cool and I love Anthony Edwards so much.ReplyDelete
Too bad for Saiorse, but maybe the film will find another home. The Sherlock show doesn't look too bad. I'm excited to give it a try.
I also love Anthony a lot, my fave ER star!Delete
