11 episodes of Elementary are out, with Nr. 12 coming up tomorrow, if I'm not mistaken. And so I thought it might be time to finally start watching it, now that I can marathon it properly. But first, a few handy rules:
1. I will in no way compare Elementary to Sherlock. Not while watching it nor while reviewing/talking about it. No matter the behind the scenes kerfuffle, these are two separate shows that are in no way connected and I will view them so.
2. I will in no way compare Elementary to ACD's works. This is not a re-imagining nor a re-invention, it's Dick and Jane who just happen to be called Holmes and Watson. I have come to terms with that and if I started poking and prodding at it again, it would destroy my fun and I refuse to do that.
3. I will stay away from any discussion posts or other people's reviews because I have it up here with haters and bashers. On both sides. I realized I had turned into one and I was disappointed with myself. So, never again. I'm sick and tired of people who can't watch and talk about Elementary without dragging Sherlock into it, without bashing the show, hating on Moffat/Gatiss or calling Cumberbatch/Freeman names. I accept that some people don't like Sherlock and it's fine with me. But if said people can't stop spewing venom, they need to re-examine their issues because they have them.
And that's it. Upwards and onwards, to less bashing in fandom!
Also, I think it's time to stop reading spoilers again. I read a few last night regarding White Collar and my mood went from "YAY, IT'S BACK IN 14 DAYS!" to "FOR FUCK'S SAKE, ARE YOU SERIOUS?!" in two seconds flat. So, no. Girl, don't do this to yourself. It's time to let the obsession with spoilers and knowing everything nownowNOW go. Try to be more zen, sweetie!
Oh, and Bones was renewed for S9, just FYI. I stopped watching during S6 and since then, nothing made me come back. But to those who still watch it: CONGRATS!
