  • The Comsummate Show

    10
    This is the best series I've ever watched! It is brilliantly cast, the sets and costumes are tastefully underdone and the writing is stellar. I hope this series continues forever!!!!
  • A BLOODY MASTERPIECE!

    10
    This TV show has everything - amazing acting, great story-line, beautiful directing... What I like the most is that there is actually no need for cliff-hangers as a way to compel people into coming back. Each and every episode is pure perfection and it's exactly that what has you hooked.

    And one more thing... Music! I can't tell you how happy I am that a present day high production TV show doesn't use cheesy pop/rock/whatever songs as background. Sherlock has these beautiful melodies that almost feel cinematic like a cherry on top.

    Absolutely gorgeous show that should be on everyone's 'must see' or even 'favorite' list regardless of their usual preferences.



  • It has its ups and downs

    6.5
    But in the bottom line, it's a great crime series.
  • Best TV Series I've ever watched

    10
    After watching many Holmes related shows, I wasn't sure about starting a new one. But Sherlock is nowhere near any other TV-Series. It's just lonely on the top. The storyline is very well adapted to 21st century Britain and the cast is just brilliant. The secret ingredient that makes Sherlock great is Britishness. There is no way you can make a good American Show for a Brit (like Elementary). First Episode of the second season is probably the best in TV-History.
  • New Favorite Show - Smart, Makes me think, Unique Style

    Season 2 and up (14)

    10
    i just became aware of this show and love it; however i wish mr. moffat would do more than just 3 episodes. i'm told this is how it's done in england. come on mr. moffat,,do it like us americans and give us atleat 6 episods at a time.
  • A really good must see!! Alternative for Elementary :)

    9.0
    I was watching Elementary to begin with but a friend told me about Sherlock. As a show and a Sherlock Holmes character compared to Elementary is a lot better and the production quality over all is much better

    but the downside is that it sometimes stretches the story too long coase of the one and a half hour episode and the 3 episodes per season only so for the two above reasons only i give it a 9 out of 10 but over all amazing show it is a must watch :)
  • Best Show on TV

    10
    No TV show or film keeps you locked to the screen like Sherlock does. The 90 minutes fly by leaving you with a sense of wonder and fulfillment. Watching Sherlock fight with his own self to be the friend that Watson needs, sometimes getting it right but more than not failing is fascinating to watch, and this is before you get to the wonderfully intricate storytelling and character development.

    The show is rarely predictable, often funny and always thoroughly watchable, a proper modern day Holmes... bring on the next season
  • Typical British Silliness

    2.0
    Long episodes with lots of Bla Bla Bla, silly dialogue, stupid content



    Is the writer on drugs or has amnesia? suddenly towards the end of each episode; decides to stick and paste contributing facts to solve the case.



    Boring Boring Boring



    If you like Sherlock Holmes, then watch Elementary. Less nonsense and more suspense!
  • grateful for this coming into my life.

    9.5
    uh ye Sherlock is one of my favourite series at the moment, my friend Taylor got me into Sherlock and I am very grateful for this. I love Moriarty, he is the best person and I want to be him aahaha
  • Need to 'find a replacement' for Sherlock & Watson

    9.0
    Before you attack me or hire Moriarty's henchman to off me, listen first. Benedict Cumberbatch is outstanding and IMHO, the next best Holmes to the legendary Basil Rathbone, that Steven Moffat watched as much as I did.

    But as has been noted before, 3 90 min shows every year or two do not make a season or series, and with all the work that Cumberbatch and Freeman have been getting, it is hard to shoot around their schedules. In this past season 3, while certainly not bad, the actors did not have the 'passion' of the past 6 shows.

    DownTown Abby shoots about 8-9 shows a season. Merlin shot about 12-13 episodes. With other actors, hopefully well cast unknowns, Sherlock would be an even bigger hit with longer seasons & a great run.

    I'm afraid it's only a matter of time before this series comes to an end because the stars are too busy. And yes I saw they will continue but only as long as everyone else does, and that is the escape.

  • Sherlock working with our Johnson!

    2.5
    A . Judge recently said that the Doyle estate needn't be contacted in order to write stories about Holmes and Watson. I suppose that is why by Season 3 episode 2 Holmes is almost a Woman! He "feels" too much, Talks too much and now can't solve a case without the input of the wife of Dr. Watson.

    I admit I was taken in in the first 2 Seasons. Brilliant. I knew it couldn't last though. Not in the 21st Century where Men are emasculated and Women always are more ! It's sad that even the GREAT Sherlock Holmes has lost his, though somewhat useless genatalia for "political correctness" gone amoco in the World! I agree season 3 episode 1 was , sort of Holmesish, but as I said he's lost his PUNCH as the Famous Detective, for me anyway. Why do Females and Men with girlfriends who have their "junk" in a lock box seem to get this chance so often these days to have input on great or even just good stories and always screw them up? . Pretty soon even Superman will have a Vagina!

    I am so sad about Holmes and Watson. I am even sadder that a Man can't be a Hero anymore even on TV

    Women are characters , like the Robert Crumb ones these days. Big Butts with Men climbing on their backs for comfort. DOn't believe me? Watch ANY television show that is supposed to have a strong male lead and see if there isn't a better, stronger female who has to help the poor old sod out. No wonder boys get in to so much trouble and men can't say with their favorite girl and wind up divorced over 50% of the time. It's a BAD social experiment and the results are definitely IN!
  • Fantasic !

    9.5
    Season premiere was fantastic, but i didn't liked so much S03E02. And best Sherlock for me was Vasily Livanov and Jeremy Brett. Altough i also like Elementary and .
  • No Spoilers...

    9.5
    I watched the premiere of Series 3 this morning. It appears we are not diving in until it airs on BBC America in a couple weeks. God bless BitTorrent and EZTV. All I will say you guys are in for a treat. It is the best of what makes Sherlock the best. Funnier than most of the other episodes. And incredibly emotional. And if you want to be SURE what Sherlock did to survive the of luck. But the way the scenarios are explained are great fun. Can't wait to talk about it with you guys!
  • I AM SHERLOCKED !!!!!!

    10
    It's truly an Awesome Show ... Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman really are the best sherlock-watson pair ever Eagerly Waiting for season 3 ! :D
  • Definitely the best

    10
    Best show ever!!!!

    Best Sherlock I've ever seen.
  • i just can't get enough of these clever twists

    9.5
    i think the writer is working really hard on this and it and he's got a lead actor who's perfect for the job so this show deserves everything, hopefully we'll see more of it
  • A brilliant adaptation of Doyle's story.

    9.5
    The only Sherlock Holmes I had ever liked was the original books or the Jeremy Brett versions so when a friend told me about this version I was a little sceptical. But when I saw how skilfully Steven Moffat had managed to adapt the original storyline and transform it into a modern version I admit I was hooked. Benedict Cumberbatches' acting in the show is also brilliant. The only issue I have ever had with the show is the inhumane wait between season!!
  • "You know my meathods Watson" I pride myself on making great shows

    10
    I love this show. It`s so amazing seeing the world through the eyes of Sherlock Holmes. At thee same time the clever marks and the incredible likeness to the books. For anyone who doesn`t know this is a modern take on the classic character Sherlock Holmes introducing him to Watson and showing you also modern takes on other characters in his universe. When he does crack jokes they are funny and you feel as if he is growing as a character. Also the villians are half the fun. These villians some of them just as intellgent as Sherlock and all have motivations that make sense. My only flaw is that it`s a little long but that could never stop it from being perfect.
  • Perfection

    10
    Ingeniously written flawless perfection with brilliant acting. This is the way TV should be in heaven.
  • Leave UK shows in UK!

    10
    As AhmedMaisra mentioned about Elementary it was disgraceful to the Sherlock name!

    Sherlock should always be paired with a male Watson! (it's made worse that there is a now love interest between them)



    Sherlock like many others have said is a perfect repatriation of Holmes!

    For one reason.... it was made in UK



    Also has anyone noticed that Canadian kid's programs are so much better then american?

    Watch dark oracle trust me man usa sucks...
  • Awesomely cleaver

    10
    A Brilliant well written show with highly believable characters. This is the Sherlock Holmes that I read about when I was a kid. Awesomewell done and can't wait for the new season. My only complaint is why BBC has such a short season. I understand that each episode is like a movie, but I think the writers could pull off more than a few episodes a year. Right?
  • Nailed it !!

    10
    To my surprise they absolutely nailed it. Cumberbatch is a fantastic choice for Sherlock Holmes-he is physically right (he fits the traditional reading of the character) and he is a damn good actor. Martin Freeman, about whom I wasn't sure at first, is an excellent foil for Holmes without being the dumb sidekick that Dr Watson has often been. I thought that this series would not work, particularly after Robert Downey's interesting take on Conan Doyle's characterisation. I have been proved so wrong-it moved along at a good pace and held the attention brilliantly. My wife started by saying she didn't like it but by the end of the episode she was as enthralled as I. We are both looking forward to the rest of the series, if it is as entertaining as the first story. I was disappointed to read some reviews here that did not love it. Methinks they are too jaded to enjoy anything.

  • I Am SHERlocked !

    10
    with delight. A brilliantly written, well acted programme. Well done to all concerned. The story had me hooked from the the elements of Holmes are present and correct. So far most of the original characters have appeared, with hints of more yet to appear. It is suspenseful and sometimes genuinely funny. I have read all the original stories, and after the late, great Jeremy Brett, despaired of ever seeing another top notch Holmes film. This is it, Brought up to date into the 21st century, but done with affection and respect to the original. Nice to see the writers have continued the theme of an intelligent (slightly bemused) Watson. CAN WE HAVE A FULL SERIES PLEASE. If not this is one I will return to again and again.

  • Sherlock VS Elementary

    10
    Elementary:

    I puked after watching 2 minutes of Elementary(Sherlock US Edition) and it took me another minute to gather the strength to shut it OFF.......

  • I love the new Sherlock Holmes I hope there are more to come its pure genius.

    10
    Pure genius, even better than the new movie that was out in the cinema with johnny Depp recently please please we really want more episodes also the actor who plays Sherlock is perfect for the role outstanding performance well done he should be in the movies excellent actor. The new technology in the series is amazing. The last episode was great the ending was a great cliff hanger so no doubt they have to bring in more episode i don't know why there was only 3 episodes I'm sure they knew it was great best damn thing I have seen on Television in years.
