...where we're going to get a new American version of the new British version of Sherlock Holmes?
I've been following Steven Moffat's reaction to the new American version of Sherlock Holmes. Not unlike Moore's reaction to the Watchmen prequels, except for Moore having created the Watchmen.
Moffat claims it will take away from his version somehow. Despite the several year head start? Did the American versions of Being Human or The Office hurt the Brit versions? Besides anyone who sees the American version first now, wasn't looking for the Brit version anyway.
And besides, it's not an American version of the Steven Moffat version, it's just an American version of Sherlock Holmes. It has similarities, like the source material, a present day setting and characters, but Moffat wasn't the first guy to come up with the idea of a modern take on Holmes adventures. It's been done several times. His show is freaking good, probably one of the best versions of Holmes. But it isn't a new idea to modxernize Holmes, and Moffat doesn't have any more claim on the character than anyone else either.
