Sherlock > Elementary. That is all.
Look, maybe you don’t know this, but people do track the #elementary tag so next time you want to make a post like this? Don’t tag your hate.
That is all.
I see your frustration, but, really, this isn’t hate. If you compare the two series on a mere visual, cinematographic, directing level, Elementary is hopelessly unoriginal, while BBC Sherlock does godamazing things with cameras and locations and lightning and stuff.
I really like Elementary, and I do too tend to compare the two series, but it’s really like comparing apples to pears. CBS does not invest money in details that the general public won’t even notice. The BBC does.There is an entire world of difference between a series that is meant to make money and a series that is meant to win BAFTA’s. And I really don’t mean that in a negative way, because as I said, I do like Elementary. But for example, CBS has Jonny playing the violin off-camera, and the Beeb paid for Benedict’s violin lessons.
But comparing the two is not hate. And if you still feel hate, go complain to CBS.
And you know what? BBCWatson gets treated like ABSOLUTE SHIT. Like, no, he really does. Sherlock is a fucking ASSHOLE TO HIM. And everyone talks about how great a character he is, and how he’s so strong and well-rounded. Joan Watson wouldn’t pour Sherlock’s coffee. John rode across London to text someone for Sherlock. Like. What. But because Joan’s not JOHN, suddenly she’s acting under the guise of a stererotype. What. WhahAATth at
So, what happened to ‘Don’t tag your hate?’
I really don’t think you can compare both Watsons, BTW, or both Sherlock-Watson dynamics. They sort of work in their own, very different way.
Yes, that wasn’t bad. Not bad at all.
i cant scroll through one page in the tag without seeing that fucking.shitty.comic
That comic is just meant to be funny. The ‘fan art’ in which Lucy Liu is holding Benedict’s (note: not BBC Sherlock’s, but the actual actor’s) decapitated head is not so funny.
Until further proof, I still think this whole ridiculous ‘war’ is caused by Elementary fandom. I have not seen one single BBC Sherlock fan saying that JLM is an ugly bad actor who should be shot or that Elementary fandom should go and kill themselves. There is an enormous difference between not liking a series and pouring hate over actors and fans.
I think Elementary is quite promising, but its fandom really is the worst I’ve ever seen.
The BBC’s greatest TV detective cracks the case of how every new fall show rips off successful past shows…except one.
OMG! I’m dying….I mean I love both series….but it’s so funny
I realized there was something that bothered me a bit, that could have been just perect with some minor changes.
Spoilers under the cut
(And for the record: I liked the Elementary pilot!)
BBC Sherlock fan: Yes, a female Watson could work, I like her! JLM does a real fine job. The plot should be a bit more clever, but I’m still interested and I will definitely watch this series although it is not as brilliantly written and visually stunning as BBC Sherlock. Also, I think the Beeb’s version stayed closer to ACD’s characters, and as a SH fan, I like that more.
Elementary fan: STFU you ugly bitch benedick cumberslut is a ugly hors that cant act and martin freyman is a racisty mysognistwhatever and mofftit should be kiled and i wish all you sherlock fans would just go and kill yoursef and come on who cares about the books the books suck you ugly poshbitches.
BBC Sherlock fan: Huh?
Seriously, Elementary fandom, you are not making a good first impression.
I watched it here. My thoughts are under the cut.
so done with sherlock fans in the elementary tag who think they’re being so open-minded and gracious when they tell us that “even though it obviously won’t be as good as sherlock, i’ll still be giving it a try!!”
do u want a medal or
So what is wrong with “Even though it obviously won’t be as good as Sherlock, I’ll still be giving it a try”? I’m all willing to give it a try, I mean, it’s Sherlock Holmes, and it has Jonny Lee Miller an Lucy Liu, so it could be quite entertaining. I may like it and keep watching.
But yes, it obviously won’t be as good as Sherlock. Because 1. Elementary is made by people who want to make money, and BBC Sherlock is made by fan boys. And 2. BBC Sherlock has Benedict, and Elementary has Jonny. And Jonny is a pretty fine actor, absolutely. But Benedict… well, there’s no words to describe his acting abilities. So, obviously, Elementary can’t ever be as brilliant as BBC Sherlock is. But I will give it a try.
Hey tumblr, I’M BACK. I brought you a gift.
Yes I know this wasn’t their ideas and I don’t mean to offend anybody. I thought this would be amusing, is all. Enjoy!
if you ever wondered why i decided to track the elementary tag
this is it
I’m not a native speaker, but I did wonder about the accent. So it is indeed OTT and not just me finding it sounds weird?
Amanda Abbington on Elementary
The first trailer for CBS’ modern day, New York set Sherlock Holmes adaptation ‘Elementary’, starring Benedict Cumberbatch’s Frankenstein co-star Jonny Lee Miller as Holmes, and Lucy Liu as Joan Watson.
So…. thoughts everyone?
Hm. I’m trying to look at it without the whole don’t fucking copy the real BBC Sherlock you morons feels, and it looks as an okay new US crime series. Not exactly as good as House, but not very bad either.
Comparing the two… impossible. BBC Sherlock is cinematographic eye candy, this is slightly boring. Benedict is the best actor the world has ever seen, Johnny is an okay actor. Lucy is a fine actress, but Martin is fucking brilliant. This has dialogue, Steven and Mark write quotable near poetry for Sherlock to say.
So… it might be an okay series, and the USA audience may like it better than BBC Sherlock, because, well, the general US audience isn’t into smart and artsy and stuff.
Most of all, while BBC Sherlock is made out of love for ACD, this is made for money. And that shows.
At least somebody loves him.
