Not only have I gotten a bit behind on the Baker Street Babble blog, but I've also gotten a bit behind on my viewing of CBS's Elementary. I note (with pleasure, I think) that the series has been approved for a third season. So now I'm playing catchup.
I just watched episode 16 of the second season, "The One Per Cent Solution." A little reference to Holmesian history there, although whether it was intended as a nod to Sherlock Holmes's cocaine use in the canon, or to Nicholas Meyer's book The Seven Per Cent Solution, I don't know. I'm not sure, either, exactly how the title relates to the plot of the episode. (If anyone would care to illuminate me on that point, I'd certainly appreciate it.) What I do know is that, although I was a little excited initially to see that they'd brought back Gareth Lestrade as a character, I was less pleased to see what an annoying douchebag the character had become. I spent much of the episode wishing that Sherlock would punch him out...which, of course, never happened. Oh well...I do enjoy Sean Pertwee's performance as Lestrade, anyway.
I shall be trying to catch up on Elementary over the next few weeks, and will try to share some of my thoughts on the show as I go along.
