Now I don't mind a little artistic license in the handling of shows about times or characters I like and follow. Rarely does any movie or TV show completely follow facts or history.
My main motivation, besides being entertained, in watching shows like this is that they make me want to learn more about the actual facts behind the story or people portrayed. I will go look up details on things taking place in the story to see how far astray the artistic license went.
But for some reason Houdini and Doyle has not done that for me.
It may be that I am not all the interested in Houdini and that I do not particularly like the portrayal of Doyle.
Or maybe it is just that they stray just a little too far away for historic fact about the times and the two main characters.
I am not sure, but this week I found myself deleting from the DVR a couple episodes I had not seen to make room for Women’s Gymnastics.
There were a few things I liked about the show, but most of that had to do with the sets and the atmosphere of the episodes.
Oh well, I can at least look forward to the start of Elementary in a few months and Sherlock in a couple of years.
