This week’s failed pilot TL;DR:
Sherlock Holmes is unfrozen in mid-90s California to solve a bunch of tiger-based murders with nothing but the clothes on his back and a shitload of cocaine.
1994 was a big year for TV. ER. Friends. The episode of Ellen where she dated Nitro from American Gladiators. Which could explain how CBS executives dared to pass on the pilot for Sherlock Holmes Returns, in which the world’s greatest detective is unfrozen in 1994 San Francisco to solve a series of murders that involve throwing tigers at people.
With a wit as sharp as Holmes himself and an enthusiasm as pure as the drugs he’ll fight you for, this show will change the way you think about cement trucks full of beetles.
