|2014-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)||While I'm coming around to your side re: Elementary vs Sherlock, I'm not sure any character on is played better on the former with the exception of JLM's Sherlock. So I guess my question is how would you rank the characters from each show?|

|The last two episodes of Sherlock this season actually have me reconsidering. The three strongest hours of the show, by far. (Though everything in the last 15 minutes, when (SPOILER and SPOILER took the heliSPOILER to SPOILER's house and SPOILER'd him, was pretty dumb.)
There are four shared characters, right? Sherlock is well played by both; I prefer JLM, but each is suitable to his show's tone. Watson is clearly played better by Bilbo, but is probably written better--at least with more of her own agency--in Elementary. Mycroft clearly better in Sherlock, the most lopsided comparison. But Aiden Quinn/John Michael Hall, as the cops, are both very strong. The strength of their characters, and the prominence of their roles, gives the show a much fuller universe than Sherlock can provide. The cases in Elementary suck, fwiw. (Sam Miller)
