Or, Why Didn’t You Tell Me How Fantastic Sherlock Is?
I watched the new Star Trek movie and thought Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job as the villain. Tall, deep voice, British accent–what’s not to love? So, I finally checked out the BBC’s Sherlock on Netflix (Isn’t Netflix awesome?).
And I fell in love immediately! By the end of the first episode I was hooked. Completely.
The writing is so smart, the characters are very well developed, and yet the series stays faithful to the original source while “modernizing” it at the same time.
Now, like all the other fans I am impatiently waiting for the third season to premiere after crying over the second season finale. While I wait I can re-watch all six episodes and fantasize along to “Sherlock + Watson” YouTube videos.
My favorite, so far, is this one. Beautiful song, beautiful clips, and a re-written ending.
And, side note, Benedict Cumberbatch is a redhead. I have a weakness for those. 😉
