"Elementary" Series Opener was Good

I like Lucy Liu and so I watched the first episode of her new series "Elementary" and I liked it as I had hoped I would. It is nothing like any other Sherlok Holmes show I have ever seen which is one reason it is good. It also was well written and acted. Unlike other Holmes shows, this one takes place in current times and in the U.S. with Liu playing a female Watson who is a "fallen" doctor who has been hired by Holmes' father to be a companion, basically to keep him from relapsing, to Holmes after he is let out of rehab. Even in this first episode, she ends up contributing to his solving of the case.
