I am a 'Sherlock Holmes' Nerd.  Read every story, watched every adaptation be it movies or tv.       
     I LOVE 'Sherlock' and can handle it all being in modern day London, which is basically what the Basil Rathbone series did in the thirties.  Benedict Cumberbatch is how I see Holmes as on the page and he and Martin Freeman have magic chemistry.
     If pushed I can just manage to squirm my way through Robert Downey Jr's rendition because the guy is a great actor.  
But Elementary?  
What the frak?
Johnny Lee Miller shagging everything in sight?  No!  No!  No!
Watson being a woman was bad enough but her being  Lucy Liu who is like watching a moving whispering popsicle?  No! NO!
And then *SPOILER*  Watson sleeping with Mycroft??????????  Sherlock's brother. Noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!  
Reinterpret-sure, Reinvent NO!!!!!!!!!
Do NOT frak with the Canon!
Whew...I have to lie down and have a nap now...I'm exhausted.
