Can we talk about how Elementary casted a trans*woman as a trans*woman
Can we talk about how they didn’t make her storyline about how she is trans* AND she was seen as something desirable
Can we talk about how she had OCD but it wasn’t something that was made fun of or…
Sorry, but the reason I have never watched Elementary is because it is a copy of the British show, Sherlock in an attempt to copy their success. An Americanized version of a British show? Sorry, but I can’t really imagine it working out to be anything other than what happened to Inspector Spacetime.
Dude, there have been hundreds of Sherlock adaptions and if you actually watched the show you can see how different it is from BBC Sherlock. It is not an adaptation of BBC Sherlock in the least. Rather they are both adaptions of the original Sherlock Holmes stories with very different intentions :/ Honestly this sort of argument against Elementary is the weakest, you can like both shows and be loyal to both shows, they aren’t trying to cheat each other. Inspector Spacetime is meant to be a parody of Doctor Who, it is not meant to be taken seriously as a separate show, and I don’t know how this corresponds to the relationship between BBC Sherlock and Elementary. Outright copies such as Life on Mars have a tendency to sink but Elementary does not try to be BBC Sherlock. It is not meant to be ‘BBC SHERLOCK BUT IN THE US!!111!’ Johnny Lee Miller is an excellent variation of Sherlock that does not try to be Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock, they are as different as cats and dogs, literally. Just like BC’s Sherlock is nothing like RDJ’s Sherlock. Or Basil from Great Mouse Detective, or Granada Sherlock. You can choose not to watch the show but please don’t let it be because you are still stuck in the common delusion of the BBC fandom thinking that all future Sherlock adaptions are just copies of BBC Sherlock.
