This show may not turn out well, you may be right. But deviating from how past versions have depicted the legend doesn't automatically mean bad.
Exactly. It's not like there can only be one true, definitive, "canonical" version of any classic character or story. And you're not doing Holmes or Watson any favors by treating them as a sacred cows.

Granted, the new Sherlock is a tough act to follow, but there may be room for yet another revisionist take on Holmes.

Let a thousand flowers bloom.
