Sherlock tries to be too cool

I like this series but it seems every Sherlock Holmes character actor
has a bad attitude.
Johnny Lee Miller is a great actor. You can see the difference in his
acting in Eli Stone series. In that series he is polite, calm, well
spoken and clean shaven. In Elementary he looks like a bum, talks out
of the side of his mouth and exaggerates a accent like someone from the
UK. Eli Stoned oes not have an accent.The actor that played Sherlock on
BBC--Benedict Cumberbatch. stinks.I think Cumberbatch is the worst
These actors that play Sherlock want to impress on us their unusual
personality but they do it with talking too fast, rudeness, acting like
everyone is stupid but them and ignoring others opinions in the cases.
The stories in Elementary are a modern day crime story, very different.
Lucy Liu plays Dr Joan Watson - is a good actress in this. She plays a
serious person hired by Sherlock's father to monitor him from taking
drugs. The old Sherlock Holmes series never emphasized drug use accept
the ones with Jeremy Brett.This drug issue takes away from the story
and personality of Sherlock Holmes.
I do like Johnny Lee Miller and I will continue to watch it I just hope
they clean his character up a bit.
