One Line Does Not a Series Make

My wife and I only got around to watching the first episode of Elementary yesterday. We were not particularly impressed, basically because all the intricacies of Arthur Conan Doyle's gift for capturing logic within narrative are missing; so we shall probably bail on the basis of only a single viewing. (That's the way "Hollywood logic" works.) Still, I have to credit Johnny Lee Miller with one line clearly directed from one source of obscure knowledge to another:
You go to one production of Le Grand Macabre and everyone thinks you're an opera buff.
I just how that György Ligeti's ghost got as much amusement out of that line as I got out of seeing his opera!
