Elementary - How to Get a Head / Uncanny Valley of the Dolls TV review

Elementary gets a bit cheeky with its latest two episodes. The puntastically titled “How to Get a Head” centers around the discovery of a headless victim whose death initially appears to be linked to the occult. And in “Uncanny Valley of the Dolls” the sole witness to a murder turns out be a sex bot whose memories help Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) catch a killer. In each episode Bell (Jon Michael Hill) is the focus of the B-story, first in the search for a detective to replace him when he leaves the NYPD (foreshadowing some possible trouble for Holmes and the department in the future) and later in and old acquaintance (Ian Hart) of Sherlock holding up Bell’s chances to get into the US Marshals out of spite. While Holmes’ attempt to cherry-pick Bell’s successor may have failed, he proves to have far more success in his carrot and stick approach to removing the vindictive roadblock to Bell’s career change.
