Yes, but as you said, it stuck. So for the intended joke/allusion it worked. A two paragraph long original quotation from the novels, wouldn't have been as "witty".

My dad does the same thing but acts like he's Jason Bourne. Since there has never been a scenario where he's been hunted down by the cops, at restaurants and Starbucks he tells them his name is Jason Bourne.

In my opinion, Benedict plays a better Holmes than anyone else I've seen... of course, that may be due to the fact that Benedict and Martin and Andrew are all just really amazing... Ben and Martin are good at reacting to each other the way they would normally.. plus, Cumberbatch is a really fun word to say. -SH

Cumberbatch's performance is too manic (as is RDJ's) & try hard "dark" ("I'm a high functioning sociopath" rolleyes) for my taste. My favourite's always been Jeremy Brett.

Those were the two weakest episodes. But if you consider those ludicrous, what word would you use to describe those Guy Ritchie movies. He is raping Sherlock harder than George Lucas raped Indiana Jones in the "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" movie (yes, South Park reference for the nerds here). The BBC just tried a modern day adaption, by putting Sherlock in the modern day era. Which is an interesting take. And it more or less works. In the novels Sherlock was heavy on opium. So he was a bit stranger, than in the old tv-movies.

I've got to disagree with you. Cumberbatch (through no fault of his own) plays Dr. House, PI. Miller's the best right now. That said, no one can touch Jeremy Brett.

You are aware though, that Doctor House character was hugely inspired by Sherlock Holmes? Even the diagnostics in that show was like investigating the "crime scene called human body".

Also stranger doesn't mean "high functioning sociopath" (rolleyes). I just don't think the BBC and Cumberbatch have a very good handle on Holmes's character. It's a standard darker and grimmer update, that's all the rage these days and comes across as silly and too try hard modern. It's the same with Jim Moriarty and Mycroft Holmes.

Plot twist: the burglar is actually your dad, and he is just trying to cover his tracks. Rule #1 of any crime drama is that the criminal is always the least expected person.
