I like Sherlock Holmes and I'm willing to check it out, even if it's just for a laugh. It could actually be really good though if they treat the subject matter well enough. I wonder how they're going to explain the change in location though, or if they're just going to change his lineage altogether. At least they're trying something new. It might fail, and it might not, but at least they gave something a try.
Off-topic a bit, but has anyone ever written a story of Holmes in the old west? Would love to see that.
