Sherlock Holmes is one of those characters that just seems to spark endless fascination and inspire people to reimagine him almost constantly.  Never mind that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle found him so tiresome that he tried to definitively kill him off in The Final Problem. By then, Holmes had reached such popularity that killing him off couldn’t really work.  Even now, Holmes seems to resurface in popularity every few years and gets resurrected once again to become the centerpiece of another slew of adaptations.

Of course, Americans being Americans, we just can’t seem to let the excellent “Sherlock” starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman stand. Nope.  We’ve got to have a Sherlock of our own, or, well, if he’s not precisely our own, at the very least he’s going to get partially Americanized to serve our own purposes.  I’m not necessarily a big fan »
