Dropped: Holmes of Kyoto

Leaving aside the fact that I don’t think Aoi is using the word “nasty” properly (Holmes has occasionally been impish, but never outright disgusting or offensive as the word “nasty” implies), watching the latest episode on a Full HD TV cemented my opinion that this show is just too crappy-looking to keep watching.

Its status as my “Comfort Food Show” of the Summer is undermined both by its appalling production values and the presence of a “baddie of the week” with convoluted motivations. An ideal CFS is either easy on the eyes, is light on conflict or stakes, or both. Holmes is none of the above, and so we bid it, and him, adieu.
