Many lovers of Sherlock are reluctant to see the merits of Elementary, and many more find it hard to watch. Me, I enjoy it as a fun weekly thing, though I do understand such sentiments. But you’d be hard-pressed to argue that the original British Holmes series, starring Jeremy Brett (Sherlockian circles nickname it ‘the Granada series’ to distinguish it), is anything other than one of the most stellar Sherlock Holmes adaptations you’re likely to find.

The Granada series is in fact my favorite Sherlock adaptation, despite its flaws. Though the series has been (ostensibly) yoinked from YouTube, it is still readily available at most libraries, and for purchase on DVD. The following is why (in my professional opinion) this series is worthy of sitting on your shelf next to the Sherlock boxset.
