The writing is really great and Johnny Lee Miller is outstanding in the role of Sherlock. There's Moriarty and Mrs. Hudson and all of the elements of the Classic story, updated sometimes to an hilarious degree.
Very creative, and you won't be sorry you got it.
Whoever thought of the idea of Dr. Watson as a woman—a Chinese-American woman at that—was a genius. And we can’t blame Arthur Conan Doyle for not thinking of this, because in those days women were the property of men equal to a stove or a couch.
In addition, Johnny Lee Miller plays a Sherlock Holmes so extreme and out-of- this-world that he jumps off the screen and into your imagination like crazy glue.
Oh, one last thing, before I allowed myself the pleasure of watching Season 2, I watched Season 1 for the second time. I think that the script writers hit another home run out of the park.
Will they do it again for Season 3? I'll be waiting to find out.
Character development continues in Season Two - Sherlock continues his fight for sobriety, and his sponsor decides it is time for Sherlock to become a sponsor; he discovers what a royal pain it is to be a sponsor and learns more about himself in the process. The cases continue to come; the police continue to be unable to solve most of them, at least correctly, and Sherlock or Watson have to step in. But the show is still less about clever plot gimmicks, or Sherlock showing off (although he still does so) and more about the interplay between the characters. I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable series.
Once again, as in the first season release, Watson's skin isn't even the same color as it was in 1080. That is how much they've altered the image by removing so much detail. In the DVD release, it seems almost as though they are trying to remove her ethnicity (which would be insane because that is such a wonderful part of the show and also a part of what makes her character so interesting and so much more unique than the cookie cutter women we're saddled with on most CBS dramas). The sofa is pale and lifeless (the dark yet bright burgundy sofa). His books are all the same color. His stubbly beard disappears from entire episodes.
I'm sorry to say it but I've decided to stop watching it entirely. I have to. Every time i see it, I feel like CBS is just slapping me in the face, once again, with their lack of consideration for all of us fans who fall in love with shows and watch them a dozen times, over and over, because we love them so much. How can I watch it a dozen times when it looks like someone pulled the transfer off an old VHS and stuck it on a dvd? Shame CBS. Shame.

I must also admit that although I grew up reading and enjoying all the Sherlock Holmes stories, I am usually disappointed by their TV and film adaptations. Read morePublished 2 months ago by From the Musician's Pen
