Starting to see a lot of Sherlock fandom hate on my dash so I’m just going to state my opinion.
My problem with the Sherlock fandom is that if you’re not the one making great art or terrible jokes, you get ignored. So as the jokes get worse and comments get offensive the sensible fans get ignored because they always were. I’ve only been in the Supernatural fandom for a few weeks and for the first time ever people actually talk to me on this site. This fandom is completely unified and it’s why I personally feel it is a better fandom to be a part of. Sherlock Holmes will always be fantastic and I am personally excited to see another adaptation set in America. If you aren’t willing to give the show a chance then you really aren’t a fan of the Sherlock Holmes character. Being a fan of Sherlock Holmes means understanding the canon and all of its adaptations for what they are: adaptations. Elementary doesn’t interfere with BBC Sherlock at all so just cut it out and let the rest of us get excited for a new Holmes.
