This might need some editing for clarity:

" It’s Sherlock Holmes the great detective who’s excited her admiration her. It’s John Watson the writer."


"she’s without guile or deceit"

That's going to come back to haunt you tonight.

Thanks for the catch, Nate. I fixed that sentence.

If things are going where I think they're going, I don't think I'll feel haunted by it, because what I said is set up for it. But please don't tell me if I'm still off base!

" only old-fashioned old people like me are watching Sherlock one new episode at a time on PBS."

ha. I'm so old, I wait for the rerun on Thursdays, because I can't stay up late enough on Sundays (here on rmpbs it starts at 10pm ;-)
My children of course have already seen the whole season..


You make me want to watch "Sherlock" which, unfortunately, I have never done.

On the other hand, I kind of like "Elementary." At first I complained because the Elementary Holmes was not like the real Sherlock Holmes, but I believe that things should be judged for what they are, and not what they are not. And the Sherlock Holmes on Elementary is not the Sherlock Holmes in the stories. I just forget about what his name is and watch the show for what it is. It is basically another take on a TV staple, just like the Mentalist, Castle and even Murder She Wrote. As such, it's not great, but it's OK.


I wanted to hate "Sherlock" what with all the text-messaging theatrics and techno stuff, but I have come to love its non-copyright breaking fearlessness. And I'm watching it one episode at a time; webstreaming it, actually.
