johnny queso: No shiat.


I believe the expression is No sheet, Sherlock.

mekki: To be honest, I can't wait for it. I hope CBS keeps up the trend they started with Person of Interest with complex plotlines, gray characters and brutality. (Best fight scenes on TV at the moment.) I like that Sherlock is a recovering addict. Yes, I know House did it. But I want to see how this version does it. Though the way Holmes moved and acted in the clip, I bet the pilot will end revealing he is still on something.

Don't get me wrong, I love the new BBC version of Sherlock as well. In fact, I love just about every incarnation of Sherlock. He and Watson are two of my favorite pop culture characters.

What I hope for this new series is that the mysteries will be better than Sherlock. To me, that is the weakest thing about the BBC series. Love the characters and the dialog but I can guess the plotline within the first ten minutes. Which takes away the fact that Sherlock is supposed to be a genius. (Really, it never occurs to him that the password to the phone is "Sher" as is "Sherlocked" until the last act? Who didn't guess that the first time they saw the phone?)


*raises hand*.

And I would hazard a guess that you're in the minority on having figured it out before the big reveal. Besides, one of the main goals of Adler's "game" was to distract Sherlock enough to prevent him from guessing the password, which she did exceedingly well. As Mycroft said of Adler's game, "it was textbook."

Bret is the best, no question, but I would really love to see Cumberbatch
tackle a straight adaptation of a Holmes story.


If there was a one-off straight adaptation of a Holmes story, I wouldn't mind seeing Hugh Laurie take a shot at it. He's basically been playing the character already, just in a different environment.

IlGreven: rudemix: If not Jeremey Brett, then Benedict Cumberbatch. If not either, then no.

If it's not Basil Rathbone, it's CRAP!


It's not Basil that drives me away from his Holmes, it's the wide varying from original source and even worse the making of Dr. Watson into a bumbling farking idiot. One of the things I most enjoy about the books is Watson. He is a very intelligent, educated and travelled man. He is not to be a dumski to be compared to Holmes to show how smart Holmes is, he is meant to be above average and still look far below mediocre in comparison. Both Brett and Cumberbatch benefit from solid Watsons. I would bet Rathbone reading it would be great listening if it followed original Holmes stories, or at least stayed in the world of Holmes.

And on that note I will prepare some reports listening to some solid gold. A Scandal in Bohemia(pops)
