Note: these original U.K. episodes include scenes not aired in the U.S. 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.

Benedict Cumberbatch was born to play Holmes.
The Game's Afoot !
I approached last night's debut episode with some trepidation: Holmes just struck me as un-updateable.
I was afraid it would be like some performances of Shakespeare in modern dress - no real reason to do so, just doing it that way as a director's fancy.
I was wrong to doubt. If you love Conan Doyle, if you love a good, fast thriller piece, if you love buddy movies, even if you love House (another self-proclaimed sociopath) -- you will love this show.
Waiting for the episode about the Giant Rat of Sumatra (and thats a good thing)
I had my reservations about this show, especially Mr. Cumberbatch playing Holmes. I am a fierce fan of Jeremy Brett's portrayal. After viewing "Study In Pink" I am pretty sure it is safe to say: This show is outstanding. The canon doesn't need another slavish period piece with a too-old actor playing Sherlock. By the way, question for Hollywood: Why are you always casting 50+ year old actors as Holmes? He isn't Dracula. Not that being 50+ makes a person ancient, but lets think about the future a bit! Also, Martin Freeman makes a very likeable Dr. Watson. While the plot was largely original, the episode was saturated with details lifted from Doyle's original "A Study In Scarlet."
Now for some violin music and dinner at Marcini's. Will you be joining me?
