    What is your favorite new show of the 2012 fall season?

    I'd have to say that mine is a toss up between Revolution and Last Resort. If I truly had to pick one I'd say it would be Last Resort. Revolution would be a close second, with Arrow in third. What is yours?

    I haven't really watched that many new shows but out of the ones I have I'm going with Nashville. Of course no one is going to steal me away from Greys Anatomy, or Shark Tank. Well except for the debates smile

    I have to say, hands down, it's between Revolution on NBC or Arrow on The CW.... those are two action packed shows that really have a lot of depth to it. The New Normal is kinda funny, but a little too political at times. I'm looking forward to Emily Owens M.D. on the CW and I'm not watching too many new shows... I've got a full plate of shows that premiered before this year... Once Upon A Time, The Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, 90210, Hart of Dixie, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Nikita, Touch, Teen Wolf, etc etc. lol. But, yeah... I answered the question forever ago. Forgive me for rambling!!

    'Elementary' is a great new take on the Sherlock Holmes franchise and is far and away my top choice for the 2012-13 TV season.  There's really good writing and acting in this offbeat and fast moving offering.  Interesting twists include a female Watson and Holmes using a patch to quit smoking.  This series is set in modern day New York you see, and nobody smokes anymore - even Holmes!!!!  He does everything else though, including gratuitous sex and drugs.  He does not play the violin however, having burned his fiddle to the chagrin of his companion, Watson. 

    Ms. Watson is Sherlock's watchdog, hired  by Holmes father, to keep the young Sherlock drug free.  She quickly becomes immersed in the Holmes mystique and transitions from an adversary to a colleague to the world's only consulting detective. 

    'Elementary' is a cousin to the fine British series, 'Sherlock', which also has Holmes in a modern day setting.  The locale for the BBC series is London and the much loved flat at 221 B Baker Street. 

    A big difference between the two programs is Watson.  In 'Sherlock', Watson is an intelligent,  highly skilled soldier/physician with a penchant for action, danger and intrigue.

    He's the most spirited Watson ever.  In one of the first programs in the series, he shows his marksmanship and saves Holmes from possible death.  He shoots his hand gun through two windows from one high rise building to another and kills a serial murderer who had lured Sherlock into a game of Russian Roulette with poison pills.

    In summary, 'Elementary' is excellent and it is on CBS Thursday evenings.  'Sherlock' is also excellent and it can be seen in its entirety on Netflix

    My wife and I enjoy elementary. 

    Our least favorite, even though you didn't ask, is Animal Practice.  The only thing the show has that is funny, is the monkey.  If they didn't have the monkey I think viewers would turn the channel to another in the first couple of minutes.  It's that bad. smile

    I usually go for comedies but so far the comedies are falling way short in my book. Go On, Partners & Animal Practice proved to be big disappointments.  That being said, I have to say hands down VEGAS is my favorite new show.  And yes I know, if you are following me you know I live in Vegas and absolutely love Dennis Quaid, but I have always felt I was born in the wrong era.  I really enjoy TV and movies that show the gangster times from the 20's through the 80's.  I grew up in Bombtown USA (Cleveland) when Danny Greene was running the town.  It's so very interesting to me how different things were.

    I have never been much of a T.V. watcher but I am all into the show Scandal.  Love it, can't wait until Thursday nights.
