Sherlock Holmes Baffled is a very short American silent film created in 1900.

It is the earliest known film to feature Arthur Conan Doyle's detective character Sherlock Holmes. The inclusion of the character also makes it the first recorded detective film.

i like when people are like, “elementary isn’t sherlock” because yeah, you’re right! because if it was, we’d hear vague asian music playing every time lucy liu was on-screen

actual sherlock script

at least Moffat got one element of the original down pat: a Victorian attitude towards race

  • Question: BBC Sherlock's Sherlock is actually canonically queer! Just thought I should let you know! - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    themountainandtheviper:

    Earlier on twitter, I was discussing Elementary and BBC Sherlock and how queer characters are/should be represented, so I’m assuming this anon is about that.
    I found this wonderful post, and I’ll use it to compare the two shows.
    The Bechdel Test. This is a test that measures female representation in media via three qualifications: 1) having at least two named female characters, 2) who talk to each other for at least 60 seconds, 3) about something other than men.
    The Troy and Abed Test. This is a test that measures POC representation in media via three qualifications: 1) having at least two named POC characters, 2) who talk at least once, 3) and who aren’t cultural stereotypes.
    The Will and Jack Test. This is a test that measures queer representation in media via three qualifications: 1) has at least two named queer characters, 2) who talk to each other at least once, 3) and whose queer status isn’t treated as a joke and isn’t overemphasized.

    To pass a test, the show must pass all three individual qualifications. 

    SHERLOCK

    Bechdel Test: Fail (1/3)

    At least two named female characters: Pass (Irene, Mrs. Hudson, Molly, Sally, Sarah, Athena, a few girls whom John dates)

    Who talk to each other at least once for at least 60 seconds: Fail (an anon pointed out to me that Molly and Mrs. Hudson talk in “A Scandal in Belgravia”; but I timed the conversation and it was barely 10 seconds long. Thus, fail)

    Not about men: Fail

    Troy and Abed Test: Fail (1/3)

    At least two named POC characters: Pass (Sally, Soo-Lin)

    Who talk to each other at least once: Fail

    And aren’t racial stereotypes: Fail (Soo-Lin is a pure, delicate, refugee of sorts; the entire [mostly unnamed] gang in “The Blind Banker” exist only as a shady, stupid Chinese Mafia)

    Will and Jack Test: Fail (0/3)

    At least two named LGBT+ characters: Fail

    Who talk to each other at least once: Fail

    And whose LGBT+ status isn’t a joke: Fail

    BBC Sherlock manages to fail all three tests.

    ELEMENTARY

    Bechdel Test: Pass (3/3)

    At least two named female characters: Pass (Joan, Ms. Hudson, Irene/Jamie, Pam)

    Who talk to each other at least once: Pass

    About something other than men: Pass 

    Troy and Abed Test: Pass (3/3)

    At least two named POC characters: Pass (Joan, Detective Bell, Oren, Alfredo, multiple minor characters)

    Who talk to each other at least once: Pass

    And aren’t racial stereotypes: Pass

    Will and Jack Test: Fail (2/3)

    At least two named LGBT+ characters: Pass (Ms. Hudson and Crabtree, also a few minor characters like Gaye and the two women involved in an affair in 2x15 Corpse de Ballet)

    Who talk to each other at least once: Fail (unless you count off-screen, then you could say that the affair in 2x15 would make it a pass) 

    And whose LGBT+ status isn’t played as a joke: Pass 

    Final count:
    BBC Sherlock: 2/9
    Elementary: 8/9

    As you can clearly see, Elementary does much better than BBC Sherlock in representation of queer characters, characters of color, and female characters.

    Also, like the original author said, Elementary has a trans woman where her gender is not played off as a joke and isn’t the only part of her character, which is amazing.

    Have fun defending BBC Sherlock's “queer” character as good representation.

irene adler’s fatal flaw wasn’t ‘sentiment’ it was an inability to let a pun go unmade and I can identify with that

lmao i dont give a shit about ships lets address the pro-abuse atmosphere this show is steeped in

Let’s watch John get genuinely upset over being blamed for EVERYTHING and then have that blamed on him too! “You’re the one attracted to abusive people John!! It’s all your fault!”
