Wonderful series. Suspenseful and well made, direction, acting, everything.

Blu-ray is region free BUT, only plays on certain players because of BBC formatting. From my experience, WILL PLAY ON SAMSUNG, WILL NOT PLAY ON SONY. I don't know about additional brands.

Enjoy!

The product is fine. But no where does it say that this is a region 2 disk set.

So do not buy this if you live in North America. It will not play on your bluray players! This is region locked to UK bluray players.

Nothing against sellers or this actual show though. Those are great. Just a warning for anyone looking to buy this.

I loved Moffett's work in Couplings, heard he was good in Doctor Who, and got blown away with his Holmes treatments. That was only the basis that they built the best Holmes ever. The actors are the icing that makes this the most watchable Holmes of all time. I want more and more and more. Come on Steven get cracking.

This is another caveat about the technical specs of this collection. My experience is the same as other reviewers who found that some North American machines can in fact play it. My Samsung unit is listed as Region A, so it is not region-free, but I have no problems with viewing the discs. I have not tried it on any other make of player.

I would suggest that if you're not positive whether your machine can play these, don't get this set. It was given to me as a gift so I got very happily lucky. Unfortunately the separate seasons are more expensive, but that doesn't mean much if you can't watch the show!

As far as the show itself, it's simply one of the top five TV shows I've ever seen, but others have written more eloquent and helpful reviews to that effect. :-)

Plenty of DVD players in the US have codes which will make them region-free and therefore able to play DVDs from around the world. From personal experience, I just had to enter a sequence of numbers on the remote and it worked instantly. Super easy. I'd recommend doing your research first: figure out if your DVD player has codes to become region-free. If not, consider buying a DVD player that can. You can also switch the region on you computer, but only a limited number of times before it gets stuck. Maybe there's a way around that as well, but I've never tried.

Okay, my review on Sherlock: Ridiculously good. I was hesitant when I learned it was a modern adaptation, but it's done flawlessly. The writing, acting, and cinematography are fantastic. My only problem with the series as a whole is the episode count and the almost two-year wait in between new seasons. On the other hand, only having six, 90-minute episodes means you can jump in very quickly without having to catch up on hours upon hours of material. Overall: A+++

Blu Ray quality is good. Cumberback & Martin are fun and believable as Sherlock and Watson. Contemporary Moriority through us for a loop, quirky and weird portrayal. Thoroughly enjoyed the story line in both season one and season two. If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan, this set worth the money. Great addition to all Sherlock collections.

If you have a laptop and can somehow find the rare and horribly expensive (not) HDMI cable, and if you have a television that has an HDMI port, you can watch practically anything. It's worth it to me to do it this way because 1) it's no big deal, and 2) the British version has the special features that I enjoy very much, and 3) why spend money to buy a different player when I actually have a solution at hand? As for the value of this 2-set series, if I were any more pleased I would have to sell all my belongings and move to London so that I could stalk the filmings. This whole series makes me happy. For anyone who has not seen it, you can stream it as I did. The memorable and clever dialogue, the inventive photography, the rare chemistry between Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch, the music, and probably other elements I'm not even aware of combine to deliver satisfaction to whatever place I sit and watch. I bought the DVDs because backing up to rewatch something while streaming is devilishly annoying and streaming doesn't give the special features.

Simply a great series! Must find the British sense of humor and means of expression, entertaining. Occasionally, miss a comment and need to repeat to catch all that was said.

This is probably the best show on tv right now, what else can be said? The extras in this package are very good.
