OK, it's not completely Sherlock, but some is better than none. In view of the occasion, I've decided to compare the two Sherlock Holmes adaptations to modern times: Sherlock (BBC) and Elementary.
I loved the Sherlock Holmes books. It was more or less my first taste of mystery/crime fiction. So when Sherlock, the BBC series, aired a while ago, I watched it eagerly. And rewatched it. And rewatched it. And rewatched it until my TV went crazy and the recorded episodes got lost in a black hole. I've also watched some of Elementary. Let's go and list out the top 5 things about this show.
1. Mycroft Holmes: "Caring is not an advantage."
2. "You lower the IQ of the entire street." Ahahahahaha.
3. I O U. I loved, loved, loved that episode. (I also hated it for making me cry.)
4. Oh, and of course, Moriarty. His role was expanded so much from the originals. "Every fairy tale needs a good old-fashioned villain."
5. Sherlock's coat. That is all.
(I need more space.)
Ahhhh! I'm going to die waiting for Season 3! ;_;
