Storyline

The show pays homage to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic literary character, Sherlock Holmes, with bold interpretations of the iconic characters, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson. MISS SHERLOCK is set in modern-day Tokyo and both lead characters are Japanese women - Dr. Wato Tachibana (or Wato-san), a surgeon recently returned from a volunteer doctors' mission in Syria, and Sara Shelly Futaba (nicknamed Sherlock), an eccentric investigation consultant to the police department who solves bizarre and difficult cases. Throughout the series, the pair solves mystery after mystery with Miss Sherlock's extraordinary observation and reasoning skills. Written by https://mydramalist.com/26438-miss-sherlock

Another failed adaptation
3 May 2018 | by kurosilSee all my reviews

I'm a fan of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes for the longest time. The only adaptation that I personally approved was the first 3 season of Sherlock (potrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch) and I've seen all 4 seasons. I don't even like the movies. Now that's out of the way, let's get right down to it.

'Miss' Sherlock. It's in the title. Throughout the pilot, I noticed that they tried to copy a lot of things from the aforementioned drama instead from the original source. So, in essence, it's an adaptation of an adaptation. Without giving too much away, you'll find almost all the counterparts are of the same role in this drama (like how Lestrade is what-his-name and such) but you'll find that their characters are glaringly different. Am I the only one that find that Lestrade wannabe laughed too much that it's bordering to being creepy?

The characters don't play the roles all that well. I find it's hard to think the Sherlock in this timeline to be brilliant. Observant, exceedingly off-puttingly weird, maybe, but not brilliant. Because the process of investigation shown in the pilot is CSI-like, not Holmes-like (Holmes nerds like me would know why). A background check and presto, you got the perp? I mean, really?

I get why the pilot did not start of with Holmes and Watson's first case (if they actually do, then it's actually worse than I thought). Unfortunately there's no brilliance in this. Almost all the tricks were circumstantials and some behind the camera explanations.

I like that it's trying to be different (female leads instead of males etc) but if you can't find good actors, directors and scriptwriters, you might as well save yourselves from embarassment and don't bother.
