Elementary Schooled by TomPreston Elementary Schooled by TomPreston
Copyright 2012 Brent Black, Dan Roth, & Andrew Dobson
Read the latest Brentalfloss comic at the new website! [link]

One of the first of several brentalfloss strips to appear on icanhascheezburger. This was made before "Elementary" officially aired.

Disclaimer: I've never seen Elementary, so I have no opinions of the show one way or the other.

The thing I don't like about Elementary is that it feels really gimmicky.
"Hey! Let's have a girl Watson! That hasn't been done before!"

Both Sherlock and Elementary are shallow and illthought through reimaginings of the books, (I'd go so far as to say, "uncreative rape"). The opnly decent source material loyal adaptions are unabridged audiobooks and Granada's television adaption.

Possible fourth panel: Brett's Sherlock Holmes either beating them up and calling Lestrade to take the two fakes away.

I don't like Elementary, because I think Watson should always be male. I don't care what anyone else says about my opinion, because it's mine. Watson and Holmes love each other, as friends(or if the fanfics are to be believed, as more).

I also don't like the portrayal of Holmes in Elementary. Besides, Cumberbatch is hot!

This is hilarious, by the way~

Actually Cumberbatch really likes the portrayal of Holmes in Elementary but this is still so funny

I used to like Sherlock until I realized: There are no positive female roles. I mean, the only one that wasn't a tool, wuss or an idiot was Irene and she was a prostitute...... I've like Sherlock Holmes since I was 14, a full three years before the Holmes Boom hit. I'm a girl, but in the BBC revision.....I just feel emberessed to be one and it makes me feel like I can't do anything.

That's why I like Elementary. Holmes' companion, Watson is an intelligent, compasionet female who brings the best out of Holmes. In addition, she learns from him and is actually his student now. Unlike the tag-along Watson who has no clue what's going on.

I mean no offence to those who think otherwise or differently, I'm just stating my opinion.

No offense taken.

By the way, in the original 19th century story Irene was an Opera singer, not a prostitute. :p

I really hope me and my friends don't have this rivalry. Greg? Sherlock. Tamsin? Sherlock. Me? Elementary. :XD:
