I just happened to actually catch the season starting on Channel 10 this year, and given the DVD's not out here till August, figured I might as well watch it on broadcast. I've actually rather enjoyed watching it the oldschool way as opposed to binging through it in a week.

And Elementary is done. The final episode was more of an epilogue to the series, with last week's more of the big finale to the arc, but was still very good and satisfying. It makes me smile to think I avoided this show for years, because on paper - a modern Holmes, done by the US, with a female Watson - it sounds like total shite :D but was anything but. And it's very telling to compare this show to New Poo, and to see not only the complete lack of showboating virtue signalling, but the obvious deep respect and love for the source material from which it drew. As opposed to the complete contempt New Poo now only shows to classic Who.
I'm going to miss it.
