The new crime drama on CBS called Elementary, as in Sherlock Holmes, is my favorite. The writing, the characters with Holmes played by Jonny Lee Miller and Watson played by Lucy Liu is pure art. Here's an example of the writing from the last episode:
"It has its costs." said Holmes.
"What does?" said Watson.
"Learning to see the puzzle in everything. They're everywhere. Once you start looking, it's impossible to stop. It just so happens that people and the deceits and delusions that form everything they do tend to be the most fascinating puzzle of all. Course they don't always appreciate being seen as such." said Holmes.
"Seems like a lonely way to live." said Watson.
"As I said, it has its costs." said Holmes.

Great writing!

And it is true that it is a lonely way to live for I also ponder and see the puzzle in everything but it is not so bad when you're a writer.
