Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let the word "modern" hold you back Three years later and Sherlock continues to be my favourite television program. The series is a brilliant modern adaptation of the original stories, with new twists and turns that I think only writers like Stephen Moffat (who writes another amazing BBC television series you might have heard of - Doctor Who), Mark Gatiss and Steve Thompson could come up with. Each episode is packed with random nods to both canonical (written by Doyle himself) and non-canonical (written by others) references, including quotes direct from the stories, cases, objects - hell, seemingly random numbers. Martin Freeman is a long-time favourite of mine and he plays a somewhat sassy and less-bumbling John Watson, opposite Benedict Cumberbatch who has perfected Sherlock Holmes's whip-quick deductions and startling intense persona. The characters are much younger than what people may be used to, but in this case it works for the series rather than against it. The cinematography is breathtaking, the music suits the mood as well as the characters, and although the modern aspect is a bit startling at first (Sherlock Holmes texting away on a Blackberry will never not be amusing to me) it's pulled off wonderfully and it's very easy to get lost in the movie-length episodes. The second season is even better and more captivating than the first, so I have high hopes for the third season, which should be out sometime this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love! These shows are engrossing! My only disappointment is that season 2 is now not being released until the Fall of 2012.

Rated out of 5 by from Excellent! The BBC has done it again and helped produce an amazing retelling of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I first caught the series when it aired on TV last summer and I was hooked! I can't wait to see the series when it returns in the fall of 2011. Yet another BBC series to add to my DVD collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I was skeptical when I first watched these on PBS, as a long time Sherlock Holmes fan I really didn't believe that a modern day interpretation could do Holmes justice. I was wrong, they captured the essence but brought them up into the modern day. I truly believe that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself would be a fan!
