I stress that this is not a comment on the pros and cons of the two series but simply an observation on their social media presence. Perhaps this is how it appears because I'm in the UK but it seems to me that the Internet is awash with sites linked to Sherlock but fewer for Elementary.
While both shows have their official sites - run by the television stations etc, only Sherlock seems to have a large number of fan sites - from the comprehensive (e.g. Sherlockology) to the relatively casual (such as sites on Tumblr).
Now perhaps I'm just using the wrong Google search terms but it does seem far easier to find sites relating to the BBC show than it does its CBS counterpart.
It also seems that there is more love for Sherlock in the US than there is for Elementary in the UK. Now I accept that this has a lot to do with the fact that the US show is only available in the UK to Sky customers which does limit its exposure.
Is this an inaccurate perception?
