SHERLOCK IS REAL. MORIARTY IS A FAKE.
This modern update of the classic Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is simply amazing. The World's Greatest Detective (played by the talented Benedict Cumberbatch) transitions seamlessly from the Victorian world of Hansom cabs and gas lamps into our hightech world of Smart phones and internet blogs. Key plot devices taken directly from some of Doyle's most popular stories will have Holmes fans rushing back to the source proving that not only is Sherlock a man fit for anytime but also that crime easily translates from one century to another as well.
If you are a fan of writer Steven Moffat's work on Doctor Who, you will be equally pleased by Sherlock. The dialogue is phenomenal, the cases are intriguing, and the acting is out of this world. What a pairing in Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson... Seriously, watch it!
Seen it already but still getting it......it was that good. It's like a mix of House & CSI.
The new series of Sherlock is an over all amazing, modern remix to the historical classics. With the use of cell phones, computers, and Dr. Watson having a blog, everthing is set together as the duo solves crimes and mysteries around today's buzzing London. Benedict Cumberbatch was a perfect match for Sherlock Holmes and really pulls off the seriousness and suspence that his character has. With Martin Freeman playing John Watson too, everything was just great!
I haven't seen a good TV show in a while but this kept me on the edge of my seat. I say, even if you're not a huge Sherlock fan, you still should at least see this season once.
I am a big Sherlock Holmes fan, I have read all the stories several times in my life, so I am pretty picky about the TV shows and movies they make. I haven't seen a good one for years and I love to watch Robert Downey Jr. act, but that movie was not Holmes at all. That said, I was a little skeptical about a Sherlock series set in modern times, but I was impressed. There were some elements from the stories, but the plots were different and interesting. Also I think the actor nailed the Holmes character in a modern setting. A very good series, but definitely not for the faint of heart. Sherlock can be quite graphic about serial killers, threats, crime etc, so I wouldn't watch with children.
Wonderful series that has awakened a love for anything Sherlock Holmes.
Sherlock is a fast-pased, exciting series that leaves you wanting more. Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes) and Martin Freeman (John Watson) portay the duo flawlessly and truly bring the characters to life. The plot is fun and addicting and you wont want the series to end.
Was a very good show. A nice change to the Sherlock Holmes stories. Keep true to the idea of Holmes but put him into modern days. Very smart idea
Take the original Sherlock Holmes stories, make them modern men in modern times and watch them solve Doyle's perplexing puzzles. The two actors are perfect together as Holmes and Watson. It is a sheer joy to watch, and watch again!
This is going to be a really great series. I hope it runs for more than two seasons. I have already ordered the second season. I had not known what to expect because it's a British series but the main actors are doing a great job and the stories are fun to watch. Good story lines with a lot of suspense. Very good.
Saw this new series on TV and now have to have it on DVD- it was that good. The best Sherlock I have ever seen! Refreshing, emotional, witty, funny, superb acting, great writing. Bravo to all for such fine work! Too bad the US can't do it like this- thank you UK!
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!!!!
I watched this programme when it premiered on BBC America, and I have to say I'd recommend it for any even glancing Sherlock Holmes fans.
It may only be 3 episodes long, but it's amazingly well done and the intricate plots are a huge bonus.
Delivery time was spot-on, and I didn't have to wait long at all!
An excellent TV show for anyone who likes procedural cop shows or traditional Sherlock Holmes. Kept up a nice balance of humor. A bit easy to guess if you're familiar with the Holmes story, but that's because it draws a lot from the original ACD. Price is pretty high for only three 90 minute episodes (plus an alternate version of one). I will be certain to watch it live next season so I don't have to buy it, but worth the price if you haven't seen it yet.
I love this version of Sherlock Holmes from Dr. Who scribe Steven Moffet. It stays true to the original formula and spirit while seamlessly updating Sherlock and Dr. Watson to the 21st century. Lovers of Sherlock Holmes will deff. get a kick out of this version. Fingers crossed that the BBC greenlights a second season to clear up the WONDERFUL clifhaner of the season finale.
Loved it even better than movies with Robert Downey, Jr. & Jude Law
LOVE THIS SERIES ! CAN'T HARDLY WAIT FOR SEASON FOUR !
This British series is the BEST modern adaptation of Sherlock I have ever seen. I just wish there were more than three 90 minute episodes a season. Aaaagh ! The anticipation is bonkers !
I'm a long time Sherlock Holmes fan, and this show is amazing. So many canon references!
