Netflix Recommendation: Sherlock

Just watched the first episode of the Sherlock, the modern-day version of Holmes and Watson.

Two big thumbs up.  Parents and children both enjoyed it.

    You are dead right. It’s a great conceit, well-cast, pretty well written.

    I was so disappointed when I realized there were only three episodes so far.

  2. I had the same reaction in regards to the three episodes!

    Thankfully three more are coming next year.

    I zipped right over to Netflix and put it numero uno in my queue, only to see “very long wait” — damn you, Taylor, the peasants got the word before I could move.

    I watched all three on PBS a couple of months ago. I don’t know if it’s me or the sound but I had a hard time understanding all the dialogue. I’m getting older and more deaf.

  5. Great stuff. Wish they had made more episodes… hope they come back with a full season.
