WOW I’M SO TIRED OF PEOPLE SAYING THAT ELEMENTARY IS WRONG BECAUSE WATSON IS NOT AN ASIAN-AMERICAN WOMAN IN THE CANON BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT? I COULD USE THE SAME ARGUMENTS THAT OTHERS HAVE MADE AND TELL YOU WHAT WATSON HAS BEEN OVER THE YEARS AND I’VE USED THAT ARGUMENT BEFORE but the thing is I genuinely believe that this is Elementary thinking wow look at this modern day setting of ours what can we do with it and it’s them taking advantage of what that means because sure you could cast a non-white woman to play Watson in a Holmes adaptation set in the original timeline but then you’d have all those people snit picking this like the ones who go all “whaaaat Lancelot wasn’t black” because haha fictional characters u so silly and sure they’re getting all snitty over that even with the timeline but then they’d comment on the ~historical inaccuracy~ of such a thing because haha fiction u so silly but Elementary is like look at us we can do what we want with our adaptation because anything goes! we are in control of what we do with our adaptation and you can damn well believe we’re going to do whatever we want and I appreciate any adaptation that sticks its toes out of line and makes itself stand out against other adaptations like when the minds behind Russian Holmes decided to cast Vitaly Solomin as Watson and aka made the most adorable cutie Watson Ever but I’m losing my point here but the bottom line is that I like my Watsons long suffering with a side of badassery and Elementary is like giving this to me upon a silver platter and a kiss on my cheek and wow Elementary I think people are going to start having the wrong impression about our relationship.
I can’t even handle this.: Sherlock uses Internet Explorer.
Oh my God what are you doing do you even realize what that is do you Sherlock do you you’re ruining your good name that is not how you internet I thought you were a genius did you delete the internet from your hard drive too that was such a stupid idea you still have nursery rhymes in there how about you get rid of those to make room for some Safari or some Google Chrome before I take your riding crop and shove it up your arse
IT’S NOT HIS FAULT
HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT OTHER BROWSERS OK
One day John was like, “Sherlock, why on earth are you using Internet Explorer?”
And Sherlock was all, “John, even Anderson wouldn’t have to ask that. I am using Internet Explorer because I need to go on the internet.”
“Yeah, but why are you using that particular browser? It’s so slow!”
And Sherlock’s like, “It’s perfectly fine. What else would I use?”
“Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome…?”
AND SHERLOCK’S JUST LIKE:
And John’s all, “You’ve never heard of those, have you. Move over.” And he takes Sherlock’s laptop and downloads Google Chrome for him.
And Sherlock’s like, “THIS IS SO FAST, HOW HAVE WE NOT BEEN TO SPACE YET?”
“We have been to space, Sherlock. Many times.”
Sherlock, do you ever ay attention to the world around you?
That awkward moment when your fictional genius is limited by the minds that write him.
#tis ok Moff/Gatiss/Thompson, you’re brilliant in other ways *pets*
