On the "Elementary" Situation

I love Lyndsay Faye's Holmes pastiche fiction, and this made my day by saying so well many of the things I've been thinking. If you have any interest in the new CBS Holmesian drama Elementary, don't miss her letter:

"A Holmes Fan’s Mistrust of Elementary: An Open Apology to CBS"


Regarding “elementary”: you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I now have a massive crush on Lyndsay Faye, thank you very much. That was awesome! And yeah, ditto. Not super-thrilled about this.

In other news... I'm ruminating about several Holmes related things brought up by the asexuality panel I went to earlier (regarding Holmes and Dr Who and Moffat)... We'll see if it makes into an email to you at some point.

So glad you liked this! You should read her Dust and Shadow... it's brilliant.

Oooh, I'd love to hear about them. Seriously.

What a witty, engaging, literate post! Heck, even the *comments* were better written than most of the reading I've been doing lately. (Mind you, I've mostly been reading excruciating student essays on the PreSocratics. But. Still.) Thank you so much for the link!!!!

ROFLOL! So glad you liked it. I thought she did a great job, and I agree, the comments are terrific, too.
