There are plenty of reasons to be skeptical of this modern Sherlock Holmes story; it’s virtually impossible that it will outshine BBC’s Sherlock, it’s set in NYC, and the decision to make Dr. Watson female, while interesting, takes an unusual male-male roommate/crime-solver dynamic and turns it into something outrageously familiar to fans of crime procedurals. That said, we still have a lot of hope for this. Jonny Lee Miller is a solid actor, and making Sherlock Holmes cool is not the most challenging thing in the world, so we’ll put on our deerstalker caps, cross our fingers, and hope for the best. Stars Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu, and Aidan Quinn and premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 10/9c.
