Are you game? It’s Elementary!

Not to be out done by our overseas cousins, the US has come up with an alternative Sherlock television series. Funny how it is starting Johnny Lee Miller, who has worked with Benedict Cumberbatch in Frankenstein.

Series is set to premiere September 27, 2012. I’m willing to “try” it, but I’m not sold on the idea. There are some things that should not be changed when it comes to Sherlock Holmes. Changing the century, been done and seems to work. Changing the technology, been done and also seems to work. Changing the sex of a main character, has been done and does not seem to work. To me, this will simply be a show about a detective and his companion. I cannot be sold on the idea that this is Sherlock Holmes. There are some things you cannot tamper with. Allowing Sherlock to have a photographic, GPS type mind-awesome. Having Sherlock fall in love with a female Watson (or anyone else for that matter)-merely distracting and annoying.Series is set to premiere September 27, 2012.
