Sherlock

Holy shit. I love this idea. TIVO!!!

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 guess I don't understand why, in America, we don't have a network willing to forgo quantity for quality.

This 3-6 episode format is normal on BBC. It really is great.

So my understanding is that Sherlock's parents in the show are really Cumberbatch's real parents.

Feasible, they were actors back in the day. His parents don't use the Cumberbatch name, though because their family were famous slaveowners in the Carribean.

MoF, there is a NY Councilwoman named Cumberbatch because her ancestors took the name of their owners.

Might be my favorite episode. A Scandal in Belgravia is awesome because of the Sherlock/Irene Adler dynamic and The Reichenbach Fall is great because of Moriarty, but the season 3 closer just has so much to offer.

I thought the first half of the episode was phenomenal, but then I thought the second hour was nowhere close to that good. Not bad, just not...special, the way I felt about the initial hour.

I think if you like Brett's Holmes then you'd like the way they potray Holmes in Sherlock.

What's weird is that I love this show, but I only think less than half of it is good. The only great episodes, IMO, are the first episode and the three series finales. The other five episodes are muddled and meandering.

Yeah, after my post above, it calmed down significantly. The Mary story line was phenomenal, but the rest was just OK for me.

Oh well. Still great overall.

I like the Irene Adler episode. But Cumberbatch's acting gets you through the duller moments.

Indeed. He's quickly become one of my favorites.

I didn't care for "A Scandal in Belgravia" as much as some people do because Irene Adler is nowhere near as awesome as she is the Doyle story, "A Scandal in Bohemia" (which is my favorite Sherlock story).

In Doyle's fiction, Holmes calls her "THE Woman" because she's the only person to get the better of him. They are no worse than true equals. Having BBC Sherlock defeat her rubs me the wrong way. But I can admit the episode itself is better structured than any of the middle episodes, and s03e01.

But, yes, the performances from Cumberbatch and Freeman can massage out most of the flaws in any script. Excellent work by the two of them.
