I bought the first 3 seasons of Elementary via Amazon Instant video, since didn't have dvr for last 3 years. But this season I have Tivo and have been recording them, I do not want to deal with padding. So I guess I will buy this season as well, have all seasons in one place.

I'm a little concerned to see Elementary moved to Sunday. While The Good Wife had its entire run there, and was successful although not exactly a barn burner, it still seems like short shrift by the network. They know this is a slot that makes it difficult to record the show, and they don't seem to be concentrating on whether it is successful or not, just like TGW. Part of this is due to the Shondaland juggernaut on ABC, but it seems like Elementary has now inherited the 'prestige' mantle from TGW. While that is good, and the show is critically acclaimed, it does little for its survival chances.


I am happy they renewed it, but if it stays on Sunday I think there is a good chance it gets its order cut from 22 to 13, or that it gets a half season either in the fall or the spring. Depends on what else is in the quiver, of course, but I do not see Elementary as a 'protected' show, Tiffany network prestige status notwithstanding.

It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.
