New Trailer for CBS’ Sherlock Holmes Adaptation Elementary

CBS has released a new trailer for their upcoming Sherlock Holmes adaptation Elementary. This one is very heavy on the Jonny Lee Miller version of Holmes being sort of quirky and strange stuff, but at least seems to have backed off the Holmes/Watson vaguely relationship-oriented tension thing, which is nice.

Is it weird that it bugs me so much that Joan apparently doesn’t get a first name in this trailer? She’s just “WATSON”.  So bizarre. That’s a kind of strange tick throughout the pilot actually – they’re forever calling her Watson, which I suppose is some kind of nod to the canon, but I am having a hard time imagining a woman who enjoys being addressed like that.

Take a look for yourself below. - Elementary premieres Thursday, September 27. It will be so interesting to see what everyone else thinks of it.

For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here’s the extended Elementary trailer – I believe this is the same one screened for critics at some point, but not quite sure when. At any rate, it’s almost five minutes long and shows you quite a bit of the pilot (including way more of the whole shirtless Jonny Lee Miller thing, so you’re welcome, ladies).

I’ve seen the pilot already, and am…I don’t know, cautiously hopeful? At the very least curious? Full of mixed emotions, apparently. Which, to be fair, is a far more positive feeling than I expected that I'd have about this series a month away from its debut.
