When I first heard of Sherlock, I was skeptical. Another rendition of this beaten-to-death franchise? Especially after Guy Ritchie’s turds of movies? Good luck.
Well, I was very pleasantly surprised. Sherlock is a smart, emotionally engaging, fast-paced, and downright fun. You can’t help but like Cumberbatch and Freeman and the very human feel of their characters, which are much more than walking soundboards of purple dialogue and snarky witticisms, and the blending of modern forensic science and Sherlock’s extraordinary powers of observation and deduction.
Give Sherlock one episode of your time and I think you’ll be hooked.
