I find myself having to heartily recommend the Amazon TV show "ELEMENTARY".

I've only just become aware of it as I've been told that Amazon are going to drop it soon.

It stars Johhy Lee Miller as SH, and Lucy Liu as Joan Watson, attached as consultants to the NYPD.
Miller play SH really well. Aloof, Aspergers, intense, sober drug addict.

The main problem is the format. Each episode (24 in season 1) is complete in itself, as so has a recognisable pattern and rhythm, which lets you know that 60% the way through the current suspect has to be a red herring, else what would they do with the rest of the time.
Contrasts very heavily for that reason with "Sherlock" with Benedict Cumberbatch. But I'd not take anything away from Miller or Lui as they play their parts very well.
By the end of season One we get extended plots, which I hope will continue.

The other thing of interest is
MoonFall, a nice silly romp with absurd co-incidence and happenings, not to be taken seriously. But worth a watch

Rampage..

Primatologist Davis Okoye (The Rock) teams up with a geneticist, Dr Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris), and tries to save George, an albino gorilla, and prevent two giant mutated animals from wreaking havoc in Chicago.

I’ve seen this film before, but didn’t realise that George was albino. 8-[

The feigned death at the end tho.. :lol:
