  1. An evil Holmes & Watson? That's a switch. I hate it, though, when classics introduce some bullshit "supernatural" element to ramp up the excitement level for today's kids.

    1. Everything that changes a classic is a horrid and offensive idea. If you want to change an existing story write your own one.

  2. This one sounded really good until I saw "Sinister Dr. Watson". How can Dr. Watson be evil? I refuse to believe it. Especially since I have a strange habit of calling my baby boy Dr. Watson..

  3. Agreeing with the other ladies here. I don’t like the retelling of this classic story. Write your own trash and leave the classics alone.

    1. Sometimes they really go toooooo far. I'm currently watching that GREAT series on Catherine the Great with Elle Fanning, and it is an unspeakable offensive trash if there ever was one.
