  6. Review: Season 2 of Elementary!

    Review

    This review contains spoilers for all of season two of CBS’s Elementary. Even as a fan of the show, I was not actually expecting the second season of Elementary and its finale to match what it had pulled off in Season 1—namely, because Natalie Dormer is now busy with Game of Thrones and really, Lucy Liu versus Natalie Dormer in a battle of hardcore ladies matching wits with millions of dollars, a global crime syndicate, and one man’s life in the balance? How were they going to top that? The writers still tried, bless their hearts. Which is why, even a week after the finale, I find myself confused at how they managed to underwhelm me even when I was expecting to be underwhelmed.

  7. Sherlock Is Much Funnier When Sherlock Sucks at Deduction

    I deduce that you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes and jokes.

    Elementary is unique among the many recent retellings of A.C. Doyle’s famous detective, for better or worse depending on your tastes, because it takes familiar characters and story elements and places them in a completely new or reimagined context. While playing it fast and loose with what’s familiar might alienate some, one thing this freedom does allow Elementary to do—and do well—is give us more interesting, fun, and complex female characters to revel in.

    Great Scott!

    A judge has ruled that the vast majority of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories are now in the public domain in the US, which means (among other things) that you can make money off your Johnlock fic without Conan Doyle's heirs swooping down on you with blazing swords, ready to exact financial vengeance. It's go time.

  10. (Most of) Sherlock Holmes Is Now Officially Part of Public Domain in the U.S.

    Just don't say anything about Watson's second wife.

    You know that Sherlock Holmes fanfiction you've been writing in your spare time? (Don't lie to us, somebody out there is totally doing it). You might be able to publish it without being forced to search+replace all the names of the characters first, because the majority of the Holmes canon is definitely public domain, a judge recently ruled.
