Sherlock, Season 2

Holmes and Watson on the Moor

I won’t spoil the fun for Sherlock fans, but I just finished watching season 2 and have been blown away. American viewers will see the new Irene Adler, though I’d keep the kiddies away from this R rated characterization. This time around Irene’s a dominatrix. But anyone with a yen for thrillers and suspense will love what Sherlock does with “The Hound of Baskerville” and Moriarty‘s return in “The Reichenbach Fall.” Fabulous television!

Sherlock and "The Woman"

Now why is CBS going forward with an updated Sherlock Holmes called Elementary with Lucy Liu of all people as Watson? She was fine in Ally McBeal, but the woman has so little range from what I’ve seen. She’s good at annoying the audience, but that’s not what I want from a Watson. Elementary will be set in New York City. How mundane. Seems half the genre’s set there. I hope they don’t blow too much money on this. No lover of Holmes would ever approve these choices.
