Sherlock Holmes. the new BBC series

Anyone watching ? Much closer portrayal of Sherlock than the movie version with Downey, and much better for it. Enjoy their take on Moriarty, too.

And if you are watching...what did you make of the season 2 finale ? Any theories ?

It's a great series. While its a shame it's only 3 episodes per season, it's really more like 3 tv movies per year. Good ones at that.

I went to see Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy not long after this season, was not expecting a blonde Sherlock.

As for theories, no clue. Moffat claims Sherlock does something out of character in that scene which we haven't yet picked up on, but I haven't had a rewatch yet.

Also, I hope the US 'Elementary' version crashes and burns.

Glad to hear it, really enjoyed the first season.

Didn't we have another thread for this series, or was the talk in the TV thread? I can't remember.

I'm totally hooked on this show It's so well made and what with me having had a huge soft spot for a bromance since childhood I love the relationship between Holmes and Watson. I look forward to rewatching the Season 2 on DVD when I get it (and catching up on the last episode which I missed); one thing I disliked about watching the series on regular TV, apart from commercials, was missing out on some of Sherlock's deductions. That man speaks way too damn fast.

I didn't even know this show existed until I stumbled on this thread a few weeks ago. I don't have a lot of time for tv/movies so I'm alwasy very behind on the current stuff. I just finished the first two episodes of season 1 and so far I love it! I'm definitely enjoying a very modern take on one of my favorites. I also just found the time to watch Downton Abbey...I actually found this thread while looking for a thread on that show. I got through season 1 very fast but now Netflix has had season 2 listed as "very long wait" for the last few weeks. So this was a great filler while waiting for that to become available. I'm going to finish up season 1 of Sherlock this week. Can't wait!

yay! Good to hear. I'm excited to watch the next dvd tonight. I think it's the final show of season 1. Netflix is sending me season 2 disc 1, FINALLY, of Downton Abbey for tomorrow so I'll have good stuff to watch 2 nights in a row.

I don't know how they're going to top Season 2. That was too damn amazing for words.

Oh, and CBS is trying to Americanize this version. The producers of the BBC one actually wouldn't help or give away the rights, so CBS has a pilot that's basically a pseudo-ripoff. I read a review of it and it didn't have much praise.

I hope it fails big time. I don't think these actors could be realistically replaced. They can try if they want to.

I just re-subscribed to Sky Tv, so i have access to the Sherlock Holmes season 3 (BBC series) which i recorded at the start of the year. Just watched the first of the three of the, and again, it was most enjoyable. Looking forward to the other two. I think i saw all of season 2 but not sure if i have seen any of the first season, as i cant ever recall seeing it in the tv guide

That trick of Mycroft's was thunderously stupid. Not necessarily in the world of Sherlock, just......the problem with terrorism is not the body counts! It would still undermine global confidence to see airliners blowing up in mid air, whether or not the British government secretly snuck in a pile full of corpses.

Did enjoy seeing Holmes' puppydog enthusiasm to show off being used against him at the Christmas party and with Irene.

I'm absolutely in love with this show and I own both seasons on blu-ray (friend who lives overseas managed to ship it to me). I love how accurately it portrays everything. The actors are just perfect. I'm eager for a 3rd season.

Apparently they're not going to start filming S3 until early next year, so no new episodes (3 again) until mid-2013 at the earliest.
