One thing I like about Miller’s version of Sherlock Holmes
He is genuinely quite odd.
Cumberbatch and RDJ are great (well, RDJ is OKish), but they’re both scripted partly as these male fantasy figures. Like James Bond with Aspergers. Very alpha-male. You’d never get them wandering around a museum with a sign that read “THIS IS A FRAUDULENT DIMETRODON” or wearing comfy jumpers that look like something their grandma bought for them.
I like that Elementary is basically, yeah, this guy is a nerd.
