    Um, I liked the BBC version of Sherlock holmes, but this is about the 3rd adaption of SH within 4 years, having included the movies. I'm starting to think everybody's going to make his own version now. What's next, Sherlock the timedetective in a crossover with Dr. Who?

    Sherlock Holmes fights dinosaurs. Your complaints are invalid.

    Just got in an argument the other day about whether Sherlock ever said, 'Elementary, my dear Watson." :rofl:

    He didn't. :ninja Don't know how the cliche got started that the word is associated with Sherlock Holmes. :unsure:

    Why isn't Sherlock Holmes being played by a woman as well?

    This is not needed.

    Just show the current BBC series and that that's all, sure we only get three episodes every 18 or so months but at least the series aren't cluttered with filler episodes. The US networks need to stop making variations of our shows/characters, very rarely do they work out and when they do they go on for too long. I know they do it so they'll make more (Game of Thrones has proved accents are an issues) but they're wasting their time because most are cancelled quickly.

    I still don't really think it was necessary, but overall it was actually pretty decent. I'd be lying if I said I was looking forward to the next season of this over the third series of Sherlock, though.
