OK I saw ads for this on TV and thought it looked weird and uninspiring. The only reason I decided to give it a try was because I liked the main three cast members-Miller, Liu and Quinn. I sat down last night to watch the first three episodes-I usually decide by episode three if I like a series enough to continue watching it.
Loved it! I watched five episodes back to back! Miller is brilliant as the rude, quirky, frustrating Holmes. Think of House(rude) meets Columbo(quirky) and Doctor Who(mad). Liu is a great foil for him and they have good on screen chemistry. I also like the relationship between Holmes and the cops-the Captain who sometimes wants to strangle him and the young hotshot Detective who finds him weird! There is humour, complex plots and it keeps you guessing throughout, which I enjoy. I loved the 'Balloon Man' and 'Angel of Death' stories in particular.
So, liking this series was a total surprise to me and I'll be grabbing the dvd boxsets as soon as Amazon lowers the price a bit! Might even continue watching series one tonight if time allows...
