I hate to start the fall TV season off by thanking Brad, especially since we are so close to the season premiere of 'Elementary' where he will just irritate the heck out of me.
But, just to be honest, he did put me on to 'Forever'.
So . . . . thanks. . . Brad.
I have watched two episodes so far and am really enjoying it.
Ioan Grufford plays Dr. Henry Morgan who is seemingly an immortal medical examiner.
His hobby over the last two hundred years is studying death in an attempt to find out why he does not die.
He has chosen medical examiner and doctor as careers to allow him to be closer to his hobby.
He is very observant, and his skills have now involved him with the police to such a degree that he now helps on cases.
I have always liked Ioan Grufford as an actor and look forward to most of his performances.
This show, so far, makes a better modern day version of Sherlock Holmes (dare I say it, as such a stanch support!) than 'Elementary'.
Grufford is a classier actor than Miller and could easily carry the role of Holmes.
In two episodes so far there have been at least two references to Holmes.
Gruffords "Mrs. Hudson" is played by Jude Hirsch and is very well suited for the roll he is playing.
His "Watson" is played by Alana de la Garza. Although her role so far is that of police side-kick, she is doing a great job with the part.
The explanation of the deductions and his methods are very convincing and are a strong part of the show.
I look forward to more episodes.
One of my other favorite movies included Grufford and Cumberbatch, 'Amazing Grace'.
