PopWatch Matchmaker: Andy Samberg's Det. Jake Peralta and Lucy Liu's Joan Watson

Some of our favorite TV characters are often unlucky in love. They just can’t seem to find The One — but what if The One is on another show altogether?

As the saying goes, opposites attract. As another saying goes, birds of a feather flock together. And as one last saying goes, couples who solve crimes together, die together.

Er, never mind. I think I just botched a Bad Boys II quote.

Regardless, Elementary‘s ultimate partner-in-crime(solving) Joan Watson has been looking for a man — she signed up for a dating service in the last episode — and Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Det. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) is in need of a lady, what with his recent botched hook-up. And what better lady than Lucy Liu’s Joan? Granted, Joan is a tad older and a lot wiser than Jake, but it’d be a coupling that would benefit both. She’s serious and he’s silly, yet they are both more than competent at their similar jobs. Just hear me out: I’m not saying they have to commit — I simply think the two would make a great crime-fighting, New York-dwelling power couple.

'Elementary' and 'Sleepy Hollow' scribes ignite a Twitter 'feud'

What if Sherlock Holmes, Joan Watson, Abbie Mills, and Ichabod Crane teamed up to solve crimes and duel mythical headless creatures?

Not that that’s happening, of course. But Thursday night, the writers of Elementary and Sleepy Hollow began a silly mini-feud over Ping-Pong, the attractiveness of their protagonists, and, of all things, socks. The shows even looped in the writers of CSI, who more or less called for a detente.

The “feud” began with the tweets above, as the Elementary staff decided to challenge Sleepy Hollow‘s to Ping-Pong. The tweeting escalated to photos and awkward photoshops, all of which delighted fans, who mostly either sided with a show or demanded crossovers.

But amid all the tweets, the feuding did result in some gems, which we’ve collected below: READ FULL STORY

'Elementary' premiere: Introducing more classic Sherlock characters

In the season 2 premiere of Elementary, Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Joan (Lucy Liu) head to London to help Sherlock’s old pal Inspector Lestrade (Sean Pertwee), who has gotten himself into a bit of trouble regarding a Rupert Murdoch-esque figure named Warren Pendry. Lestrade, of course, is one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic characters. Along the way, we also meet three more of Doyle’s creations — Inspector Hopkins (Tim McMullan), Mycroft Holmes (Rhys Ifans), a faceless Langdale Pike, and Sherlock’s London home, 221 B. Here’s what we learned about them. READ FULL STORY
