I will die horribly and die happy.
I just saw a “Renly’s Beard Appreciation Post” and to my great disappointment it was not eight different gifs of Margaery Tyrell
And I would like to say something. You must admit that Moffat and Mark were the first ones to come up with the idea of Sherlock Holmes in the modern days. (emphasis mine)
I don’t know if you can hear my laughter from where you live, but I assure you, it is LOUD AS FUCK.
Moffat and Gatiss were not by ANY MEANS the first ones to change the setting of Sherlock into a more modern one. I just… the ignorant audacity of that statement literally boggles my mind.
No, no, NO. Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Homles stories have been remade and adapted, including, yes MODERNIZED, hundreds of times before BBC and Moffatt/Gatiss got their hands on it. According to Wikipedia, “The Guinness World Records has consistently listed Sherlock Holmes as the “most portrayed movie character” with more than 70 actors playing the part in over 200 films.”
“Oh!” but you BBC stans cry, “those were all set in the original time period! They don’t count!” False! Perhaps the most popular Holmes portrayer, Basil Rathbone, starred in fourteen movies between 1939 and 1946, and (again from Wiki): “The Universal Pictures are distinctive for being set in the then contemporary post-World War II era.”
Two movies, one in 1987 and the other in 1993, had a frozen Holmes being defrosted in the modern era by a woman (Jane Watson and Dr. Amy Winslow, respectively) who then acted as his partner as the solved modern crimes. He was even pushed forward into the future, with a robotic Watson as his assistant!
And let’s not forget the characters that draw directly from Holmes like Bobby Goren (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Adrian Monk (Monk), Patrick Jane (The Mentalist), and most especially Gregory House from House, who lives in building 221B and whose name is even inspired by Holmes’. (Holmes = Homes = House, get it?)
So, continue your Elementary-bashing, Sherlock BBC stans. I will continue to enjoy my 22-episode seasons (as Elementary is almost certain to be renewed for next year), my awesome female Watson, and Clyde the tortoise.
Epic beat down is epic.
