Art mirrors art

I have to be the first to say this: The new Sherlock Holmes movie is based on the TV show House. It least, the characters are. Go see the movie, you House fans, and note all the similarities. The characters of Holmes in the movie and House in the series are identical. They are both cynical, unshaven slobs with a wisecrack for any occasion. And Watson is Wilson, House's sobersided friend. Holmes spends half the movie trying to torpedo Watson's romance with Mary (And haven't we seen that in House).
Here's what I suggest. Go to the movie, compare what you see, and then say you saw it here first.


  1. But other than that, how did you like the movie?

  2. I don't know yet-- I've only seen it twice. I have to go a couple of times more.

  3. I'm not able to post the link here for some reason, but I see the movie reviewer at the Ogden Standard Examiner is thinking along the exact same lines as you. Just Google Ogden Standard Examiner movie review Sherlock Holmes.
