Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson's adventures in 21st Century London. A thrilling, funny, fast-paced contemporary remake of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic. Each season consists of 3 90 minute episodes.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman return as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in the acclaimed modern retelling of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic stories. But now our heroes find themselves in 1890s London. Beloved characters Mary Morstan (played by Amanda Abbington), Inspector Lestrade (Rupert Graves) and Mrs. Hudson (Una Stubbs) also turn up at 221b Baker Street.
Witty and unpredictable. Sherlock keeps you guessing and, everytime you think you know what's coming, something even more unexpected happens. This show will keep you on the edge of your seat and keep you coming back for me. The only downside is how long we have to wait between seasons but it gives you time to watch it several times before the next season.
Very stylized, i like some of the new takes on classic stories. I think Moriarty was sublimely perfect. Some of the shows are a little off pacing wise they can get a little long in the tooth. Some of the go-to comedy brake from the high drama is a touch lackluster, overused gay joke etc.. etc.. all in all it is worth a watch just to see the new takes on classic story lines. Know that if you are going to get into it there is a Looooooooong wait on new episodes and the seasons are also anemic as far as episodes go. Its okay, each one is a movie pretty much but.. you need to know.
