WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Its Sherlock Holmes as you've never seen him before. Cumberbatch breathes new life into the classic character with his sociopathic, addictive tendencies, Freeman's Watson is more vulnerable and human than ever, and Scott, although shorter on screen time than I had hoped, is the ultimate villain you love to hate and hate to love in what I can only call my favorite acting to date. Each feature-length episode is sure to break your heart but then mend it back together in Gatiss's brilliant way (as he also stars as Sherlock's know-it-all brother). I can see no better way to update this classic into modern times and create characters that force viewers to love them, no matter how flawed and broken they are.

This modern take on Sherlock Holmes and John Watson is a must-watch for any fan of the novels (or fan of mysteries... or fan of TV..). The script, camera, and acting combine into this smart show. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Sherlock and excels in his portrayal of the ever-complex detective. I personally find Martin Freeman's performance to be the most engaging as he is able to portray so many different emotions at once as the war veteran and doctor John Watson. These two performances, along with Andrew Scott as Moriarty, make this series so gripping.
