On a whim, I recently watched the first Charlie's Angels movie, and Lucy Liu has not aged at all in the intervening 17 (!) years.

She could (and really should) have been a big action star in the 2000s. Pity that Ecks vs Sever was rubbish.

That is a surprise, I was expecting a 13-ep wrap-up. Should we expect weekly episodes through late May, or will it run into June/July?

21 seems like a weird number since all the others were 24? If I remember correctly?

Either way, still sounds like a wrap-up and I hope they do it well I love you Elementary

Shinwell wasn't awful but S4 was probably the best since S1 and it was a hard act to follow with no... really... meaningful players. Moriarty wasn't there, Kitty was barely there, Morland wasn't there, and don't make me miss Mycroft. don't. make. me. miss. mycroft.

I'm just hoping they resolve Watson's rivalry with the one crooked detective she once beat in a boxing match.

I'd say the main failing of the arcs in the show is that Watson arcs tend to drop quickly and with little impact. Who remembers the same of her boyfriend who was loving murdered right before her eyes?! Doesn't come up. Same with the boxing cop and her mother's dementia.

I'M DISAPPOINTED THAT CORTANA WILL BE A CIRCLE AND NOT THE ACTUAL SEXY WOMAN FROM THE GAME.


Season 5 to me is where the show really, really started to feel tired and old; like they'd run out of inspiration and were just going through the motions.

Season 4 ending with them framing Vickner, roughly 1/3 of season 5 was Sherlock & Watson continuing that trend.
Season 5 was Sherlock/Watson working beyond the system & normal ethics to bring down criminals; which should
lead to a interesting season 6 if Moriarty does return & throw all that back into their faces,
..........along with John Nobles severed head to increase Sherlock's love/hate fixation on Irene Moriarty.

They expanded Season 6 to a total of 21 episodes.

quote:

"... He'll also find his sobriety regimen 'competing' with a regimen designed to address his prognosis. There will be times he'll question whether he can tackle one problem without succumbing to the other. And, of course, there will be an impact on his work ... The work won't come as easily to him when the new season begins. At least not at first. In the meantime, he'll to have to commit himself to his health and to his partnership in ways that will be very challenging to him," the EP teased.

Agreed. This was the first time that I didn't feel impatient about the new season, even though it starts half a year (?) later than usual.

I sure wasn't expecting end of April, but hell a date is a date so I'll take it.

I was hoping the Feb 11 speculation I'd seen elsewhere at some point or another was gonna be true so we'd get it immediately after the Super Bowl, though. Ah well.

I was surprised we got one in the first place, and it started as a half-season order. So, yeah, don't think there'll be another season after this one. All I want is to see Moriarty one last time, hopefully for a few episodes. End with a bang, call it a day.

You know Everyone will be in a few episodes. Itís easy comic relief when the writers include Everyone.

CBS has started running promos for the season premiere. Itís about time. Probably not the best way to build buzz to wait until like 2 weeks before the premiere, but at least the show will be back on.
