Kromm September 6, 2015 Author Share September 6, 2015 Yep. I loathe BBC Sherlock. At least Elementary Sherlock resembles a human being. But in my opinion in many ways that's truer to the books. Holmes in them is quite alien in many ways. The way they illustrate that in Sherlock is a bit updated, but it's fitting that he's quite incapable in many ways of connecting with other human beings. Whereas Elementary's Holmes learns all kind of "lessons" and other sentimental claptrap that's totally at odds with the very unsentimental books. Not that Elementary is a bad series. It's just an okay series about a guy named Sherlock Holmes who's vaguely similar to the character from the books, but isn't him (although he's a lot closer than Watson, who as I already mentioned is just completely different).
