Editorial Reviews

The world's greatest detective is back -- and this time, he's fighting crime in the brave new world of the 22nd Century!

After Sherlock Holmes is brought back from the dead, he is rejuvenated to that of a 25 year-old to help good friend Inspector Beth Lestrade battle an unprecedented crime wave wreaking havoc on this peaceful future. To assist Holmes, the personality of his loyal friend and companion, Dr. John Watson, is programmed into the brain of an android. They quickly lock wits once again with the consummate criminal: Professor James Moriarty, the only adversary Holmes ever considered an equal. Like Holmes, he's been brought back to life by 22nd Century technology. Unlike Holmes, Moriarty is determined to dominate the crime-free world of the future.

Features over 11 hours of crime fighting, world saving action and suspense.

  • Each episode is inspired by one of the actual literary classics of Arthur Conan Doyle.
  • Visually highlighted by a striking blend of traditional 2-D and 3-D CGI animation.
  • Produced in consultation with an educational consultant to be FCC-friendly, emphasizing critical thinking, problem solving and deductive reasoning skills.
  • FIRST TIME AVAILABLE IN ITS ENTIRETY!
  • Bonus episodes from Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, Ripley s Believe It Or Not, Flight Squad, Stargate: Infinity and Liberty s Kids.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glitch in "The Scales of Justice" Episode March 5, 2012
By Darby
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a blind buy and I must say I am really enjoying the show. The storylines are well-crafted and the animation is great. However, there appears to be a glitch on Disc #1 in the episode entitled "The Scales of Justice": at time interval 3:29 the disc freezes (and it's not a normal layer transition freeze) and then jumps immediately right into the middle of another scene with Holmes and crew fighting mythical creatures. The timer on my DVD doesn't skip ahead and the total episode runs at 16:06 minutes rather than the normal 22 minutes, so obviously about 6 minutes of footage is missing. I think it is an error how the disc was manufactured and I will be contacting Mill Creek Entertainment about the issue. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

Darby

UPDATE 11/11/12:
Mill Creek recently send me a pressed replacement Disc #1 and the episode plays just fine now, so it appears that they have fixed glitch. If you find that you have purchased a copy that still has the glitch, email Mill Creek at support@millcreekent.com to request a replacement disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely entertaining and amazing price. February 2, 2012
Format:DVD
I remember this show from when I was an early teen. I was always a fan of the character of Sherlock Holmes but could never get into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books at that age. Then this cartoon came along. Being a scifi geek I gravitated towards it. It continues where the books ended with Holmes and Moriarty dying together over a waterfall but instead Holmes managed to save himself. He continued his career in secret until he died at a ripe old age. His remains, which were perserved in honey, are reanimated in the future when it turns out 22nd century criminals have cloned Moriarty. Inspector Lestrad is replaced by his great great great granddaughter and lovable Dr. Watson is replaced by an android with his complete works and journals downloaded in it's harddrive. The three then track Moriarty and solve various cases modeled after each original Holmes story... Hounds of Baskervilles, The Red Headed League, etc. with a futuristic twist. Great for kids who love scifi and want to try a little classic literature too and great for adults because it's still quite intelligent and very entertaining. My only complaint about this wonderful show is it didn't last longer. Enjoy.

Funny Fact: Doyle never intended to write the last Sherlock Holmes book. He wanted to leave the characters of Holmes and Moriarty in an eternal chase..one never catching the other as a metaphor for the never ending struggle of good and evil. But his publishers and fans badgered him relentlessly for years to at least finish off the series with some sort of closure. So he did. He killed them both off out of pure spite. Haha.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Place Like Holmes... March 2, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a long term Holmsian I sometimes (well, usually) find myself in the minority when discussing this series with fellow fans, most of whom dismiss it as pure non-canonical rubish. I, however, quite enjoy it, and have ever since I first discovered it back in 2000 or so. To be honest, the stories stay far truer to charactor than most interpretations of Holmes, far more so than Basil R., for example. And it's the perfect way to introduce children to the great detective.
Each tale is based on one of A. Conan Doyle's original masterpieces (some, I must say, more than others) and names and referances from the classics abound. If you have any love for Sherlock mysteries, go ahead and pick up a copy. You can claim it's for the kids if you must, but you'll find yourself popping it in when they're not around.

5.0 out of 5 stars If your copy has a glitch too, please read September 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My copy of this collection also had a glitch during the 'Scales of Justice' episode. So when I looked at other reviews to see if anyone else had the same problem and what they did about it, one reviewer said he or she contacted the company and was sent a replacement disk. So, I emailed the company and explained the problem. Millcreek is wonderful! They too sent me a replacement DVD and it works wonderfully. I rewound the problem scene where it skips just to make sure and no problem. So fellow watchers of Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century, if you're having a glitch problem with your copy, just email Millcreek. It worked for me and I'm glad I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Take on Sir Arthur. August 1, 2013
By railfan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was introduced to this series a while back when, because of heart problems, I was also having anxiety or "panic" attacks. I swiftly learned that by watching "no-brainers" on the TV, I could swiftly ameliorate these attacks. To my delight one of the shows was this one: Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century - Complete Series. Before long I found myself watching it just for the fun of it, because I had read the originals many times over. Because of this knowledge of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works, I could sort of lean back and really enjoy these animations most thoroughly. While some may say "Oh, these are just for kids," I truly wonder. Yes, they are pitched for children, and yet, there's a not-too-obvious adult pitch, as well. Anahoo, I still love this series and I'm glad I purchased it. Yes, I do recommend it, but if you're an adult, keep the salt shaker handy. Still, I think you'll enjoy these as much as I do.

3.0 out of 5 stars The 3 Stars Do Not Lend to the Nostalgia December 9, 2012
By Terry
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I know that it may sound a bit rough as a fan of all things Sherlock Holmes, but I have to say I wasn't overly impressed with this adaptation all in all. Re-tellings are apart of all things (books, art, music, movies, tv programs) and sometimes they aren't fantastic. Not to say that this is terrible, but it wasn't my cup of tea. The accents that were giving to these characters were meant to sound British (different dialects also used) and they sounded rough and forced in some places. The character of Holmes himself IS egotistical, but sometimes he didn't feel like the character in this watered down version of himself. His over explaining EVERYTHING to the people around him as well as the enemy weren't fun and sometimes long to sit through. Though the actual Sherlock Holmes character does explain things, it is usually towards the end of the adventure when things are wrapping up and doesn't feel like it drags on. And the CONSTANT usage of "It's Elementary" followed by the lengthy explanations was rather off putting.

Now please keep in mind, I did like the series over all. Some funny, unique stories plus some humor occasionally added, that and a little bit of mystery for us as the viewer to follow made for a reasonably smooth ride. It is an overall basic cartoon series that is enjoyable to an extent.
