The Babysitter's Club example is really Not Allowed to Grow Up and not this trope, right?

No idea about CBS' Elementary, but hasn't BBC's Sherlock caused a considerable rift in what's considered the "right" Sherlock Holmes era? I think the whole reason that Gatiss and Moffat created it was to prove that the style and essence of the stories isn't "Victorian age".

I love Sherlock, but I don't think it's genuinely created a rift to that degree. Holmes is still widely considered Victorian and I'd imagine will continue to be that way.

Guys, "Setting Sherlock Holmes in (then) Present" has been done before - the famous Sidney Paget version was set in the then-present for instance...

Only the original books - and then only the ones that were written later - are stuck in the Victorian Age as opposed to set roughly concurrent to the time they came out in.

So which is it? Was the Swinging Sixties really brief, or did it extend into the 1970s?

Are the novels Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo considered Frozen in Time due to the references to the 1872 Cavite mutiny and the Luzon tobacco monopoly?
