'Elementary' season finale: Let's talk about it

WARNING: This post contains spoilers about Elementary‘s season 2 finale. If you haven’t watched, proceed with caution.

Our sleuthing duo has become more of a trio. Raise your hand if you feel like it’s a little crowded in here? While I love Rhys Ifans, I’m really resenting Mycroft for coming between Joan and Sherlock. He’s mucking everything up. READ FULL STORY

Pete Holmes spoofs Sherlock Holmes -- VIDEO

Sherlock Holmes doesn’t have quite the detective skills we think he does — but he does have a pretty impressive imagination.

Comedian Pete Holmes plays Sherlock in a spoof of the BBC series that stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Watson), revealing that the famous detective actually has horrible deduction skills. In the video, Holmes’ Sherlock makes assumptions about James Watson’s (Matt McCarthy) life based on things like the kind of phone he has and the shoes he’s wearing which all end up being completely wrong. Maybe he was just having a bad day?

10 things we learned from Benedict Cumberbatch's 'T Magazine' interview

Oh hey, look — your boyfriend Benedict Cumberbatch scored another magazine cover and photoshoot! (We’d say he’s never looked better, but, uh, we’re kind of biased.)

The Cumbermeister’s latest interview isn’t exactly his most revealing ever, but it does include plenty of tasty tidbits about how his first major acting role, how the “accidental superstar” reacts to Cumbermania, and which animated character he thinks he bears a resemblance to. (Hint: It ain’t Prince Charming.) Here’s what we learned:

He’s still self-deprecating to a fault

He’s in your computer, taking over your Internet
According to the article, last year, Cumberbatch was tweeted about a staggering 700,000 times. That’s a lot of name jokes.

He’s got a sense of humor about his unique look
“He says he looks ‘like Sid from Ice Age.’”

'Sherlock' goes 'Man of Steel': Should heroes have a license to kill?

The Sherlock Holmes played by Benedict Cumberbatch is the most brilliant problem solver on television. The Sherlock Holmes played by Jonny Lee Miller in Elementary comes pretty close, but I give the edge to the “high functioning” sociopath with the “mind palace” in his head. (Now that’s some Intelligence.) The third and final installment of Sherlock’s third season challenged the master detective with a most vexing conundrum, a test of both imagination and morality, one that has become increasingly popular in our hero fiction of late: To kill or not to kill.

Help us solve the mystery! Who's your favorite Sherlock Holmes? -- POLL

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first introduced Sherlock Holmes to the world in his 1887 novel A Study in Scarlet. Since then, the London-based detective best known for his logic, use of disguises, and overall ability to solve just about anything has been portrayed on screens both big and small. From Basil Rathbone’s 1930′s version of the character, featuring his signature pipe, to Benedict Cumberbatch’s recent adaptation, every Sherlock has a little something different to offer its audience.
