While the points made on that post are p much valid, what bothers ME about Elementary is simply that it is a Sherlock Holmes version, since imo there is not a lot left from the ACD stories at all. So why did they not just make this show, but not as a SH version but as a detective drama (see also House or Psych as shows that are based on SH a bit but don't need the name to get attention)

it has loads of references though like it cleverly twists things or uses elements from them instead of adapting one large thing at a time ahhhh

but tbh you’re not gonna get a non-biased answer out of me man I would shag this show if I could

Okay so this Not Sherlock post came up on my feed and I want to know what in the world it is. Is it a real tv show? Or is it some fake thingy to make fun of Sherlock? I'm so confusseled yet so intrigued.

it’s Elementary, the show all the Sherlock cast shat on for no reason other than it was an American version of modern-day Sherlock too hoORAY!! 1

Elementary’s definitely superior to Sherlock in a lot of ways like Sherlock is superior to it in other ways so defo check it out

the only thing I can warn about is that the first few epis are slow and kinda just set up Sherlock as a new char cos the showmakers were super aware that Sherlock’s cast was dogging it big time aw

Sketches today are all about Sherlock touching John’s ass. Also Sherlock with rolled sleeves. Also John with piping on his britches? Some days you know, what can you do.

I’m taking this as a compliment to Elementary.

LOL.
Not Featuring A Dude Who Makes Rape Jokes is `100% a compliment.

Not mayo on white bread.


#Not a show where women are punchlines?#Not a show where women are reduced to sexy plot devices or bitches?#Not a show with only 1 poc regular cast member despite the series taking place in one of the most culturally diverse cities#in the english speaking world?#OH NO#OH GOSH HOW TERRIBLE.


Not a show helmed by a dude so racist he regurgitates Yellow Peril conspiracy theories circa 1898.
Not a show that reduces WOC to antagonistic shrews/wilting lotus flowers but rather casts a WOC in the lead to totally pwn a white British supervillain that tries to reduce her to a ‘mascot’
Not a show that constantly queerbaits its viewers and mocks them for daring to interpret the characters as anything other than cishet men.

a show featuring 100% canon trans and gay characters that handles them like real human beings a show that turns misogynistic tropes on their heads a show that calls its white male protagonists out on his shita show with an adaptation of sherlock who praises women a show with flawless writing that showcases how women actually actdo i really need to go on

not a show that features orientalist ~chinese music~ every time joan watson is on screen
not a show that fetishizes lesbian women and has them fall for the straight white man

"He makes me feel alive. When I’m with him it feels like we could save the world. I feel indestructible. I am dazzled by his brilliance. He’s a drug. I am addicted to what we are. I am addicted to him."

Shootbadcabbies did this comission for me a couple weeks ago and I will never get over how cute these little babies are. It’s based on my little ficlet that is here.

teatective:

Okay so lately I’ve heard a lot of talk about the toxicity of johnlock vs. sheriarty but can we just talk about how harmful and toxic John and Mary’s relationship is? I mean, honestly.

consultingaytective:

contrary to popular belief, sherlock is not a mysterious emotionless badass. he is, in fact, a sad nerd penguin who loves john watson immensely and is obsessed with science, bees and board games

lesmoules:

I don’t get umbrellas, blargh! oh btw, guys! Read this fic! Cheese aside (beware, it’s really, really cheesy), I quite like the idea of Sherlock having a fiddle contest with …a fairy…the faerie queen. FIDDLE CONTEST. Or leprechauns.

"GATISS: To be honest, I put [an explanation of Redbeard] into the first draft of [The Sign of Three], and actually explained it—the reason that Sherlock was behaving like a child was because, once upon a time, he’d fallen for that story that your bunny rabbit has gone to live on a farm somewhere. And then we thought, ‘No, let’s hold it back because we can tease it a bit.’ And we genuinely thought, ‘We can keep this running for years.’ But then actually…

MOFFAT: It’s nice to have resolved it.

GATISS: So the truth is that when he was little — and obviously Mycroft tormented him about it — is that his dog died, and he totally fell for the idea that Redbeard had gone to live in a happy valley somewhere."

Do you know what the even more hilariously sad thing is? John was supposed to think that Sherlock was being sent off somewhere far away, where he could run free and have tons of detecting fun without him… but he was really being sent to his death.

OMFG Is that why he was so fucking mad about Bluebell?  oh god.. my heart.

(via asknerdymind)



Bluebell?

…Oh, hell:



SHERLOCK: Stapleton. I knew I knew your name.

STAPLETON: I doubt it.

SHERLOCK: People say there’s no such thing as coincidence. What dull lives they must lead.

(He holds up his notebook to her on which he has written a single large word: “BLUEBELL”. She stares at it in amazement as Sherlock watches her face closely.)

STAPLETON: Have you been talking to my daughter?

SHERLOCK (putting his notebook away): Why did Bluebell have to die, Doctor Stapleton?

JOHN (bewildered): The rabbit?

SHERLOCK (to Stapleton, as she stares at him blankly): Disappeared from inside a locked hutch, which was always suggestive.

JOHN: The rabbit?

SHERLOCK: Clearly an inside job.        [x]

…So. This is the face of Sherlock when reminded of his most painful childhood pressure point.

That’s not heartwrenching or anything.
