"Elementary" dear Sherlock

Written by: Christopher Lee

So, CBS has released a sort of behind-the-scenes/teaser/trailer for the American iteration of “Sherlock”. 

<pause while the fan boys n’ girls start pissing vinegar>

Personally, I like Johnny Lee Miller. So does Benedict Cumberbatch! They’re buddies IRL and have spent a good deal of time doing an amazing performance of “Frankenstein” where they’d switch off back and forth playing both Creator and Monster.

So it’s said, Miller has received not only the blessings, but some advice on the character Cumberbatch has so wonderfully portrayed. From the trailer above, I quite like it, sure, as a long time “Holmes” fan (I read the books, watched the movies and tv shows as a kid), I have my reservations, but I’m not going to dismiss it. The character has been re-invented time and time again (anyone ever watch “House”?). My only real skepticism comes in the form of Lucy Liu as “Watson”. But, ya know, I’m going to hold out on that. Because as much as I may be against it, I think it’ll be a lot better to not have to deal with all the slash/fic and like artwork of “The Homosexualized Holmes and Watson Adventures” that people seem so keen on churning out. (**just to clarify, I am very supportive of the LGBT community, hell, I look great in a dress, it’s just that…ugh…c’mon people…ya know?)

So, we shall see come this fall. Should the show fall short, there’s always the 3rd Season of the BBC “Sherlock”!
