Today I have an article at io9 about adaptation vs. interrogation, Elementary’s first season, and the handling of two true Baker Street Irregulars! Spoilers for the first season, and also for bees.

Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn’t advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger. And it probably wasn’t wise to share a bathroom with eight other people in a coed dorm. Looking back, that was crazy.
