If it's crap ... We'll tell you
We have a new modern day version of Sherlock Holmes coming to the US via CBS this fall. Do you think a New York Sherlock will fly? More imporatntly, will a female Dr. Watson make the cut?
Well, since response is slow, perhaps I'll talk to myself.
Well self, unfortunately I think the CBS audience will enjoy this incarnation of Sherlock. I say unfortunately because it doesn't interest me in the slightest. But, CBS has become a haven for cop dramas, they're giving the folks what they want and the edgyness of the character will be popular. The weak point for me is Lucy Liu's Joan Watson character. A. a female and B. forced to be with Sherlock.
I concur. Joan Watson is a lame idea.
How many people are subscribed to this? I'm surprised with all the Sherlock hype that you have to talk to yourself. I thought I'd find about a thousand theories on how Sherlock "got away with it" at the end of Series 2 on here....
I was also surprised that I had to create my own group in order to talk about Sherlock. There is also another Sherlock group that started discussions on each original Sherlock story, but it hasn't seen actions for over a year. We can discuss the end of BBCs Season 2 on the other discussion I have here! Thanks for keeping me from talking to myself
According to Miller he wont allow for any sexual tension between the characters (other than the one fans give them, like in Sherlock). I am not liking where this is going. At All. But hopefully it will be something good, but I think the Mentalist is closer to Holmes than what this is looking.
And the Damn thing is called Elementary! Were they looking for the shittiest name for a Sherlock Holmes show imaginable? Will Holmes say it like a Catchphrase? Bullshit.
Welcome to the group!
From the latest clips, it seems this Sherlock character will more resemble House than a traditional character. And didn't 'Elementary' take The Mentalist time slot? That shows they are looking for the same viewers.
Thank you! They may be amping the House factor too bring in the House hungry audience. But I hope it's is own thing because I sincerely hope this is good, even if it all points out to it being tolerable at best.
