There has been a lot of debate at my house about which Sherlock Holmes is the best. There are two great adaptions of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s master of the mind on television right now, Sherlock and Elementary. I am a huge fan of both shows. Both of them take the classic tales of Holmes and Watson and place them in a modern day setting. They both have fantastic casts; Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freemanstar in Sherlock, Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu in Elementary.
Now this is going to be a two phase post for me because I have some things to accomplish with this. The first is the debate. My wife and I agree on most things, however, we do not agree on who the better Holmes is. Though a fan of both shows, we differ in the opinion of who portrays Holmes the best. Here is where you all come in. In your opinion, who is the better Sherlock Holmes? You can base this on any factors. Who appears to be smarter, who would win in a fight, anything. I just would like some solid numbers to put with this.
Here is where phase two comes into play. It consists of us, as fans of the show Sherlock, banding together and somehow getting the show to last longer. From numerous reports, it has been hinted that this is going to be the last season of the show. I don’t know if my brain can handle it. I understand that all things must come to an end. I just think that there is a lot more that the duo of Cumberbatch and Freeman can do.
So, I am going to need your help. Should we start a petition? Should we bombard the show’s producers with fan mail pleading for more show? Or do you think that it would be best for everyone if they just left it at 3 seasons and that be it?
I have my own personal feelings about this, however, I know that my voice alone will not stop the end from coming. If you think that this is a worthy cause, let me know. Whatever we come up with will be better than not doing anything. I am excited to see what the response is. Help me solve this problem.
