Breaking Down The Craziest Half Inning In Television History

Can we have him go through their financial records?

The CBS procedural Elementary, now approaching the end of its first season, reimagines [Sherlock] Holmes as a tattooed modern-day detective, freshly released from rehab and relocated from London, who offers his consulting services to the NYPD. And it takes Elementary all of one episode to bring up baseball, as if to remind the viewer that this is Sherlock Holmes in New York, like you’ve never seen him before. The scene, which I’ve embedded below, comes at the end of the pilot and shows Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) winding down after a long day of deducing by watching the Mets.

Holmes: Truth be told, I find the science of the game quite fascinating. All of the statistical analysis, all of the strategy. So if you’ll allow me to save us both a little time… [He focuses on the screen] Popup to center, intentional walk, game-ending double play. Final score: Reds of Cincinnati 3, Metropolitans of New York 2.

You'd think the pitcher being left- or right-handed would be one of the more important details to stick to.

Elementary is, like, a total rip-off of House, man! Even the name "Holmes" is similar to "House"! They oughta sue the b@stards!
