fact: russian adaptions of sherlock holmes are woefully under-appreciated
How many Russian adaptations are there? (I’m only aware of two-the soviet Holmes that apparently tops all others and the new one) if there are more could you list them?
Overall there are six adaptations, if I remember correctly. The new one, the Soviet one, then there’s a play called The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Blue Carbuncle, My Dearly Beloved Detective which we are going to sub, and a short cartoon with Holmes voiced over by Livanov. I think I should also include other two cartoons, The Murder of Lord Waterbrook and a mini-series that we are subbing now and having troubles translating the title without being accused of racism. I watched all of it
The Hound of the Baskervilles is a really boring play and I wrote a fun review to save your time
The Blue Carbuncle is a musical high on acid and I wrote a review on it as well
My Dearly Beloved Detective is a cross-gender adaptation, it is really great and that’s why we are going to sub it, so I shall not write any spoilers for that (even tho I wrote a review on it as well)
The cartoon with Livanov, high on acid too and lacks English subtitles
The Murder of Lord Waterbrook - hilarious cartoon that came out in 2005, finally with English subtitles
And the cartoon from the same developer above that has 6 episodes 6 minutes each is currently in process, same fun, believe us.
