So, remember when a copy of my novel Adaptation had a cameo in episode 1.7 of CBS’ Elementary, “One Way to Get Off,” which aired Nov. 15, 2012?
Well, since then Adaptation has appeared twice more. It turns out its first appearance was actually earlier, in episode 1.6, “Flight Risk,” which first aired on Nov. 8, 2012.
And then in Season 2′s Episode 7, “The Marchioness,” which first aired Nov. 7, 2013, Adaptation made its third appearance:
Thanks to sharp-eyed reader and Elementary viewer Katherine Jordan for sending me the screencaps for “Flight Risk” and “The Marchioness”!
I don’t know whether the props master at Elementary just happens to like the book cover or whether someone on the show has actually read the book, but I am super tickled that it has made three appearances on this show. I’ve always enjoyed Sherlock Holmes stories and this is a fun adaptation (ha — oh wait, is the usage of the book symbolic?!) of those tales. Also, bonus points for putting it in close proximity to Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller!
Anyway, if anybody affiliated with Elementary is reading this, FYI there’s a sequel to Adaptation. It’s called Inheritance, and it’s out now. I’d be happy to send you a copy if you want!
And if this has been a ploy to convince me to watch Elementary, I admit: it’s working.
