Thursday Playlist: Sherlock vs. "M" on Elementary, Scandalous Madness, 1600 Penn, More

Aidan Quinn, Jonny Lee Miller

"A simple moniker for a complicated monster." That's how a rattled Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) describes "M.," his nemesis from across the pond, whose bloody M.O. is on display in a New York crime scene that threatens to send the genius sleuth off the deep end into rogue vigilantism in a first-rate and pivotal episode of CBS' enjoyable Elementary (10/9c). Even an amateur Sherlock-ian knows what that "M." stands for and signifies: "The greatest puzzle you'll ever come across," taunts an adversary.

1600 Penn Boss: We're Not Worried About Political Correctness

Josh Gad

1600 Penn is about the First Family, but it's definitely not about politics.

"It takes a little bit of time, but we do quickly [get] to a show that concentrates more on the family dynamics where the White house is just a back drop," executive producer Mike Royce told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter previews.

Critic's Notebook: Dexter, Homeland Finales; 1600 Penn

Dexter

Sunday's second-season finale of Showtime's Homeland was titled "The Choice." Which could just as easily have applied to the seventh-season finale of Dexter that immediately preceded it. The ones making the ultimate choice, though, are the viewers, who must decide if they're willing to go where these dark bundles of insanity take them.

I echo Homeland's Brody when I say: "I'm in." I realize it might be hipper to join the Twitter snark parade, especially when it comes to Homeland's giant leaps of credibility-defying faith, but imagine how dull and dreary this fall would have been without this one-two punch of Sunday night high-octane entertainment.
