Sherlock

Quote:

Co-created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the new Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as his loyal friend, Doctor John Watson. Rupert Graves plays Inspector Lestrade.
The iconic details from Conan Doyle's original books remain – they live at the same address of 221b Baker Street, have the same names and, somewhere out there, Moriarty is waiting for them.


Steven Moffat says: "Conan Doyle's stories were never about frock coats and gas light; they're about brilliant detection, dreadful villains and blood-curdling crimes – and frankly, to hell with the crinoline. Other detectives have cases, Sherlock Holmes has adventures, and that's what matters."
This three part series starts on 25 July.

I watched this last night. The first episode was amazing. The guy playing Holmes really pulls it off well.

That looks like something I would like. I watch quite a few of the BBC mystery series, and sometimes it's difficult to catch everything they're saying because of the sound quality and some of the dialect (like in Midsomer Murders). Unfortunately, most of the DVDs don't include captions, which help. This looks like you can understand it very well, though.

Muse's "The Uprising" is on its way to becoming the most overplayed song of this generation.

BTW, I should point out the soundtrack for the show is not nearly so modern. It has a good vibe. I dug it.

One of the BBC channels I guess. I don't get it, so I pirated it last night. :evil:

Steven Moffat can be pretty damn good. This sounds similar to his modern update of Jekyll a few years back that was excellent. The lead actor, James Nesbitt, was also great.

I saw a very short commercial for "upcoming programs" on Masterpeice Mystery on PBS (Sunday nights) quite a while ago and it included Sherlock. So, it should be on PBS sometime, but could be weeks or months away. For sure, it won't be shown here in the US until most or all of the episodes have shown in the UK.

Benedict Cumberbatch? That name sounds about as British as you can get...

Sherlock U.S. Air Date

Good news for our American cousins, the air date for BBC’s Sherlock in the US has finally been announced.

PBS will be screening the three-part mini series starting Sundays, October 24-November 7, 9:00 p.m. ET, so you will all be able to see what us Brits have all been squeeing about.
