While there's certainly no stopping the release of 'Elementary' at this point, set to premiere on CBS less than a month from now on September 27, people still haven't stopped talking about its apparent similarity to BBC's Benedict Cumberbatch adaptation 'Sherlock.' And by "people," of course, we mean Benedict Cumberbatch himself! The 'Star Trek 2' star had even more to say about the backlash between the two, and this time he isn't so nice...
Audiences everywhere are only a few months away from deducing the quality of CBS' new modern-day Sherlock Holmes adaptation 'Elementary,' and even the lucky few at Comic-Con 2012 this week will get an extra sneak peek at the Jonny Lee Miller / Lucy Liu-starring series. But in case you won't be around to make the panel, how would you like a first-look at the original dynamic duo in action?
Color us more curious than cautious with regard to CBS' upcoming original adaptation of the classic Sherlock Holmes mythos, 'Elementary.' Sure, there's the talk of its aping Steven Moffat's similarly modern-day 'Sherlock,' but for the most part 'Elementary' seems unique enough to warrant investigation. And what better what to distinguish itself by introducing its leads, Sherlock Holmes and
John Joan Watson?
With 'Elementary' having been picked up to series over at the CBS's upfront presentation a few weeks ago, there's certainly no stopping the network from producing its modern-day Sherlock Holmes. But, just because the Jonny Lee Miller / Lucy Liu series is still moving forward, that doesn't mean the other modern-day Holmes adaptation 'Sherlock's creator doesn't still have something to say about it.
Today will mark the big day for The CW as the network reaches its turn to hold Upfront presentations, including schedule announcements and video from its new offerings, but yesterday was CBS' moment in the spotlight. So between their high-profile new dramas and comedies, which were most worth watch and most likely to stick around this fall? Check out new looks at 'Elementary' and others to judge for yourself!
For months we've been telling you about CBS' upcoming adaption of a modern-day Sherlock Holmes 'Elementary,' particularly the way it seemed to affect those in Steven Moffat's camp, executive producer of the other modern Sherlock Holmes series 'Sherlock.' It's all been words up until now, but with the Upfronts this week, wouldn't you like to see CBS' first look at the series? We thinks you would!
With its Upfront presentation occurring this coming Wednesday, CBS was no slouch in following the other networks this weekend in making big renewal and cancellation orders. We're still distraught that we've seen the last of Horatio Caine delivering glib one-liners with shades following the cancellation of 'CSI: Miami,' but what elementary new series does the network have its eye on?
It happens just about every pilot season that one series winds up being compared to another for their apparent similarities. Just about every network sci-fi drama somehow gets measured up to be 'The Next 'LOST,'" and 'Smash' drew heavy 'Glee' comparisons at first, though very rarely a new pilot deals with the very same property as an existing show!
