I have to admit, I'm actually more interested in this show now, as long as there is no silly romance involved
They lost me at the announcment.

Yeah, the choice to make Watson a woman seems like this is going to be like Moonlighting. If Sherlock were the asexual neurotic cokehead he is in the books, he wouldn't be as marketable on CBS. Which is too bad, because Sherlock's "freakishness" is what makes him a cool character. That's the thing the BBC series really got right--that Sherlock and Moriarty are these two guys who think they're gods, and that they're separated from the rest of us "normal people".

A coked up loner genius going on adventures would be a show I'd watch.

Everything CBS is doing with Elementary seems gimmicky to me. Fuck that shit. This show and its fandom, the best ever.

Welcome to the new thread for CBS's lame sounding version of Sherlock Holmes. Basically too many posts about this in the BBC Sherlock thread... so... voilΓ .
