This series is great, definitely worth watching. The first 3 seasons were interesting, fun to watch, and captivating!! This latest episode, The Abominable Bride, was awful though. A '1' or '0.5' on this scale. Terrible writing. Please go back to the caliber and style of the first 3 seasons!!
Wow. I read that season 4 and 5 are confirmed but season 4 is filming in 2016 and is to air in 2017? Can anybody confirm? It's a great series - we love it - but if this schedule is true, that is really stretching it out pretty thin. I hope they can get things sorted before viewers forget about it and lose interest. We're not all that patient. .
I've really loved all the SHERLOCK episodes, until this one. I felt all the actors were having a great time with their little in-jokes and were taking the piss out of the viewer. It was simply condescending and I hope the next, and possibly the last, series lives up to what once was!
This show is unbelievably awesome! I love everything: music, cast, characters approach and the modern adaptation of Doyle's stories. I'm not so crazy about the Moriarty portrait because I would like to think that the perfect villain is above the psycho category. Everything else is as good as it gets, for sure. And I'm guessing the short amount of episodes per season is to focus all efforts in creating the best story possible -and I gotta admit, it works every time- but is a real torture waiting so long between seasons. But then again, all that just makes this show even more original.
This is a original show, not as in the concept is all new, but the pacing, the way sherlock thinks is amazing. The characters are intriguing and interesting especially sherlock. There has not been a bad or boring episode, a must watch.
Loses two points only because of professor Moriarty. Although the action is transferred in modern England, the concept, the main characters and even the cases are in perfect accordance with Doyle's books. And then, someone came up with the idea to present an ingenious master villain archetype as a ridiculous psychopath. It's painful to even listen to him talking.
Apart from that, the show is amazing, in every aspect. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are ideal as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, the plot is great, even the music is fantastic. Well done!
I accidently stumbled upon this show on Netflix the other night and now I completely understand all the fuzz about that Benedict Cumberbatch fellow; He is simply amazing as Sherlock. The show is so well written, clever and witty, that it is hard to comprehend.
I warn you, if you watch the first episode, be sure you have the time to watch the other episodes as well, you will be yearning for it. I definitely got a new, serious addiction!
The series is far better than any American TV currently available. The Sign of Three was one of the best shows in the series and my wife and I look forward to watching this again. Something that we don't normally do. Bravo to Masterpiece!
Benedict and Martin are easily the best Holmes and Watson in recent history, 100 times better than Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law from the 2 movies. Show is wonderfully written and acted by everybody. Best show on BBC. Doctor Who doesn't have anything on this.
This series has made me read books for the first time - the sherlock books by Arthur Conan Doyle. I even imagine the same faces while reading them. True Detective deals with reality but lacks this series' stellar script.
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.
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.
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.
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 :)
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
