This blog used to be views on various things. But in all these years, I find it going a whole new direction.
Something which I have loved all the time. It's BOOKS!! So, presenting a whole new saga, of books and a little about them, whatever I can find, write, visualise and imagine...
The two were similar. Sherlock was close to
Shawn Spencer from 'Psych' in more ways than one. Firstly, their names are pretty similar
Sherlock vs Shawn.
Shawn is of course, nowhere close to
Sherlock, but they both have superior observational techniques. They both have
a playful attitude, Shawn’s, of course is more obvious and quite in your face,
whereas, Sherlock’s weird sense of humour, is legendary.
James Roday, lead character from Psych
Sherlock's brother, Mycroft Holmes, who is seven years
older to him and Shawn’s father, Henry have a lot in common too. Mycroft,
who is superior to Sherlock and a little lazy, as well to conclude cases is somewhat
similar to Henry Spencer. One cannot miss the times, when Henry could solve
most cases, but due to his retirement or perhaps laziness, does not.
Sherlock has Dr. Watson and Shawn has Burton Guster, both of them are similar in character, Watson has an MD, while Gus is a
pharmaceutical salesman. Their talent naturally lies in the medical field,
which is important to both protagonists from time to time. Gus is somewhat
scared of most things that Shawn finds himself involved in. Watson’s job never
takes up most of his time, while Gus follows Shawn around, literally all the
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Both characters of Shawn and Sherlock like to
get one up on the local police. The cops are another league. Firstly, we have
Detective Carlton Lassiter, who very like Inspector Lestrade of the Scotland Yard, is an
unimaginative character is the entire series, close to the rulebook and
strictly conformist with their jobs, but has a reluctant respect to Shawn.
There are a few others who are similar but
Moriarty and Yang, take the cake. Both characters are seemingly one par with
each other on an intellectual level, trying to beat each other, though Yang
does help out Shawn towards the end.
Psych (American TV Series)
Wow! I found quite a few links to the whole
'Psych' and Sherlock connection on the internet too. Am sure there are some more,
but it is back to watching more Psych on TV, and to finding the old Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and rereading the entire collection.
They both are good fun to read and watch. And
this whole thing has got me interested in watching Sherlock on TV, but I don't
know about that. Psych definitely is the one to beat. Only on the modern detectives
front though! Because when it comes to reading a book, Sherlock Holmes will
never be beat.
