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, new takes on classic stories. Moriarty was sublimely perfect. Some of the shows are a little off,pacing wise, they can get 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.

With each episode clocking in around 90 mins, expert acting, and a tight script, Sherlock feels more like a series of movies than a t.v. show. The best depiction of Sherlock to date, This show is smart, and consistently manages to deliver devious problems, with clever solutions. These mysteries will keep you guessing at every twist, then make you kick yourself when Sherlock finally explains how the answer can be simply elementary.

THIS. SHOW. IS. AWESOME! I don't give 5/5 stars lightly. This show greatly deserves it. If you are a fan of Sherlock you need to watch this. Heck, If you are a fan of GOOD TV you should watch this. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are awesome and give some awesome performances. After watching you will understand why Benedict is starting to become huge in America. The ONLY downside is the wait between seasons. But it is well worth it. But don't just take my word and the millions of others for it, GO AND WATCH THIS SHOW!!!

Sherlock is an awesome British show and the icing on the cake is the performance of Cumberbatch. Brilliant show.

This is tight in everything from story to the acting. I am generally sceptical when it comes to modern interpretations of historic novels but this works in every single episode. Both Cumberbatch and Freeman are superb but they are backed up by equally superb actors and actresses, which breathes new life to the never ageing stories from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Old or young you'll me mesmerized by this as has everyone else.

Having read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic books growing up, BBC made my dreams come true with Sherlock. The trickiest part of modern shows is losing the classic elements of the books the show is based on. However, Sherlock preserves the characteristics of Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson, and Benedict Cumberbatch is flawless in his portrayal. A must watch for all Sherlock Holmes fans old and new.

There isn't much NOT to like about this show. Although, I do find myself losing interest halfway through the hour and a half long installments and then perking back up just for the end.
