Sherlock Holmes was always a modern man - it's the world that got old. Co-created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, Sherlock is back as he should be: edgy, contemporary, difficult and dangerous. Sherlock can tell a software designer by his tie or an airline pilot by his thumb; he has a unique analytical brain unlike anyone else in the world and has found the best way to stave off boredom is by solving crimes. When a chance encounter brings soldier John Watson into Sherlock's life, it's apparent the two men couldn't be more different, but Sherlock's intellect coupled with John's pragmatism soon forges an unbreakable alliance as they investigate a series of baffling cases together. Drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

Best adaptation to date.
I have been a Sherlock Holmes fan for nearly 30 years, and initially avoided this show due to the concept. I couldn't see how Sherlock Holmes could still be Sherlock Holmes in a modern day setting. Then I got over my prejudice and decided to give it a try.
This series gets Sherlock Holmes *right*. More right than the Guy Ritchie movies, more right than almost any other adaptation to date. It does away with the scenery and gets straight to the core of the original canon, which was never about Victorian England. They were set in Victorian England solely because that's when ACD was writing them. This takes the characters and the mysteries and murders and makes them into an immediate and involving event for modern viewers.
You don't need to know anything about the Holmes' from before. You don't need to have read the books. If you have, there are little touches and references throughout which are an absolute delight. You can watch this series as an utter blank slate and still be enthralled by it.
This show is absolutely incredible - updated for modern sciences and sensibilities, and yet still so true to the original Sherlock Holmes adventures.
Absolutely the best thing to come from TV Land this summer. Absolutely looking forwards to series 2 a year from now. Absolutely highly recommended.
Well! Finally! A series worth my time!
I am not trying to sound arrogant, but I am so relieved to be able to lose myself to excellent acting, directing, dialogue and writing! Sigh....this show is so good, it wouldn't surprise me if it is cancelled. I mean...isn't that what usually happens to shows that are too Intelligent for the general public?
The cinematography, long episodes, music and acting are so good, I feel like I am watching a movie every week. Makes me giddy it's only 2 dollars per episode. I love the British!
