 CBS officially greenlights "modern-day Sherlock Holmes" pilot set in NYC, titled "Elementary"




American Film Industry. You cannot cut/copy this one. I know it might be strange to you, but sometimes a show makes a shitload of money because it is QUALITY and it DESERVES IT. Not because it’s a market quantifier or buzz marketed into people brains. There is no Sherlock bandwagon. Go home and write something new. 

you said it sister


WHO CARES?? General notes to people getting butthurt about this:

a) It’s not even a remake of “Sherlock,” so stfd. I am one of the people who was horrified by the prospect of a “Spaced” remake, but this is not that. And “Sherlock” is the one bazillionth incarnation of Sherlock Holmes. Is one more REALLY so objectionable? 

b) It’s not “America,” it’s CBS. There are plenty of original and creative shows on American television. CBS is the network that brings us “CSI: Every City” and “Fat Guy/Hot Wife” (along with a couple of good shows). 

c) WAH WAH WAH you guys are like the people who insisted that Doctor Who was going to suck when David Tennant left. JUST SHUT UP. I’m not saying it’s going to be good, but how can you be SO OFFENDED based on SO LITTLE INFORMATION.
