Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) accepts a case to look into the theft of an artificial intelligence known as “Bella.” More interested in the software itself, and disproving it as legitimate A.I., Holmes passes off most of the legwork involving the theft and eventual murder of one of Bella’s creators to Kitty (Ophelia Lovibond) and Watson (Lucy Liu) while he becomes obsessed with testing the machine.

As a fan of the BBC’s Sherlock, I was more than a little skeptical to learn CBS had picked up their own show for a modern day retelling of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller). Set in New York, rather than London, the show broke with convention early and often starting with the decision to cast Lucy Liu as Joan Watson. Far more prolific in terms of the number of episodes, creator Robert Doherty gives Sherlock a run for its money in this smart, and far different, adaptation of the world’s greatest detective.

Recently released from rehab, we meet Sherlock Holmes for the first time through the eyes of former surgeon turned sober companion who we learn was hired by Holmes’ absentee father to help transition the former heroin addict to a sober life. For the first several episodes Watson’s main role is to keep Holmes on the straight and narrow, but her interest (and insight) into Holmes’ work soon begin to transition Miss Watson into the role of Holmes’ apprentice and partner as the show’s First Season unfolds.

From Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat comes the new BBC series Sherlock which reimagines the classic detective (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his faithful companion (Martin Freeman) solving crimes in modern day London. This scene, taken from the first episode “A Study in Pink,” is Holmes’ attempt to describe his rather unique profession to his new friend.
