The Not So Perfect Marriage
26 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

Holmes and Watson find themselves running afoul of the law as they try to help an up and coming politician who is being blackmailed by a marriage broker. The scheme is to set up rich or powerful men with potential brides, create some ruse like battery or assault, and then blackmail them. Holmes and Watson go undercover and Holmes ends up in the slammer. Watson and LeStrade are forced into taking over the case because an overzealous police lieutenant won't let him out of jail. It has amusing results. However, the whole plot is so silly. Obviously, this was TV fluff for the time, but for clever people, these guys get themselves into the most ridiculous situations. How about a confederate, watching out for things, witnessing if you will. Instead they end up in the same trap the young politician is. Without some clever intervention, there would be no arrests. It is a treat watching Watson squirm in front of his prospective "bride."
