Everyone’s hating on Elementary on YouTube cos they say it’s a rip off of Sherlock
It’s not a rip off. It’s an ill-timed release for a very similar but separate concept. British shows and American shows have very differing styles, so I highly doubt Elementary will come out like a copy cat of Sherlock.
Yes, Sherlock just got really popular so it seems like CBS released the show to ride on its popularity, but House got really popular before Sherlock came along. The Mentalist is still a really popular show. You can’t say those two shows aren’t closely linked to Sherlock Holmes, and have a modern day twist to it.
Now, I’m not saying Elementary will be as good as Sherlock, because there is a massive difference in tone, and plus just from the trailer I got the feeling that the writing won’t be as good - but you never know. The producers of shows are almost never in charge of how a trailer is done (as far as I’ve learned, practice could be different) so a trailer can really be misguiding.
But, hey, you get to look at Lucy Liu, so, stop arguing.
