Editorial Reviews

Nominated for 4 primetime Emmys, Sherlock is back with Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson in three new stories. In A Scandal in Belgravia, Sherlock gets embroiled in the complex plans of the dangerous and desirable Irene Adler, and finds himself employing every one of his remarkable skills to survive as the unlikely duo square off in a battle of wits... and perhaps emotions? The Hounds of Baskerville whisks the increasingly popular detective and Watson to the wilds of Dartmoor, and face to face with the supernatural lurking in the eerie landscape. Meanwhile, Moriarty is still out there in the shadows, and is determined to bring Sherlock down - at whatever the cost - in The Reichenbach Fall. With beguiling performances, witty scripts and some of the most intriguing characters ever created, it's no wonder that Sherlock has proven to be a worldwide success.

Such was the ego-stroking the cast & creators received for their first series of SHERLOCK, they couldn't help but gain huge confidence as they try to top themselves in Series 2. Steven Moffat always did have roaring self-esteem, and so he and co-creator Mark Gattis shrugged and decided to take on the three most iconic touchstones in the Sherlock Holmes canon. Series 2 is a (mostly) brilliant reworking of, in Moffat's own words, "the Hound, the Woman, and the Professor."

It was a ba11sy move to reimagine Sherlock Holmes in 21st Century England. That it worked tremendously is due to smart writing and the amazing chemistry between the two leads, Cumberbatch and Freeman. The writers inserted clever touches such as the onscreen texts which reveal Holmes' instantaneous deductions and his ready application of contemporary tools (cell phones, the Internet, etc.) to aid his investigations. In this universe, Holmes attains his clients primarily thru Watson's popular online blog in which the good doctor recounts Holmes' cases. The writers and creators are so cocky nowadays that they don't hesitate to inject broader bits of comedy (an act of heresy were this show not as good). As such we witness fleeting play-on-word references to Holmes' more trivial cases such as "The Geek Interpreter" and "The Speckled Blonde." For whatever reason, I smile whenever the camera pans to Speedy's Sandwich Bar & Cafe, atop of which is where Holmes and Watson share lodgings, very much still 221B Baker Street. At heart, Sherlock Holmes is still very much the cold, calculating machine. But Series 2 aims to poke a hole in that stance.

5.0 out of 5 stars From Good to Great May 21, 2012
By JD
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
As I watched the first season of "Sherlock," my fondness for this show increased. From the opening moments in "A Study in Pink" to the Moriarty's stunning entrance in "The Great Game," I knew I was witnessing the rebirth of an icon. Yes, Mr. Downing Jr.'s portrayal in Hollywood's version is admirable and entertaining, but to find the true spirit of Sherlock Holmes one need look no further than this series. However, to say that it was ever more than "darn good television" would have been pushing it. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman put on a fantastic show, and ever so often the writing and acting gave small glimmers of greatness, but I was never tempted to say that the show had achieved lasting greatness (though to successfully transpose Holmes into the modern age was a feat in and of itself).

However, with "The Reichenbach Fall," I'm pleased to say that Sherlock has left far behind casual crime drama (good drama though it was) and has now entered the realm of true, incredible art. From the writing to the acting, to the gripping, gut-wrenching final moments (I don't know who deserves more credit, Cumberbatch or Freeman for displaying some amazing acting chops), I am pleased to say that this episode delivered some of the finest television I've ever had the privilege of watching. To go any further into how incredible this single episode is would do a dis-service to you, if you have read this review so far. Stop reading and watch. Really.

5.0 out of 5 stars An invitation... January 17, 2012
Format:DVD
15 minutes.
That's all I need to convince you to watch this series.
I guarantee it.
Start from the beginning, Season 1. Fifteen minutes. If you want to turn it off after that, be my guest.
The writing, the acting, the CINEMATOGRAPHY, the costumes, the portrayal, the twists, the turns, the wit, the suspense: all create a fresh, new, brilliant invention of Sherlock Holmes in the 21 century...it will capture you and never let you go.
So go...watch this. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Sherlock'--let the new season begin! March 13, 2012
Format:DVD
The first season certainly ended on a terrific note and fans could hardly wait for the next set of episodes in a thrilling, modernized Sherlock Holmes take. In "Sherlock, Series II" we find the world's greatest consulting detective and his good doctor up to even more thrilling escapades. Season I was so thrilling that I ordered the advance copy of Season II from the UK--it's not yet shown here in the States, but there is great anticipation for it, however.

Sherlock's "brilliance" has never been so cleverly presented. Benedict Cumberbatch (as Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Dr. Watson) seem perfectly matched and merely watching their bantering (and loyalty) is refreshing and at the same time touching. The genius of Sherlock, just because it's been updated in time, is never in doubt--but updating it to modern times, with the latest of technological "gadgets" is also a bit mesmerizing.

In Series II, we find (only) three adventures: "A Scandal in Belgravia," "The Hounds of Baskerville, " and "The Reichenbach Fall," are all based upon the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories, with, of course, clever updating.

And what Holmes adventures would be complete without at least a mention of Moriarty. We found him at the close of the final episode in Season I and, of course, we pick up where we left off.

At the end of "The Reichenbach Fall," I was a bit shocked--but the realized that the clever producers have, once again, set us up for another season. It cannot come too soon.
Clever, clever, clever!

It's the best season available. The Lady makes it happen and, as always, Moriarity in the shadows. The development of his brother is a joy.

Type of Blu-ray disc for Sherlock series 2?
I was going to buy this set, but it's listed in full screen. The season one was region A and in wide screen, so I hope S2 eventually comes out in this format as well.

Amazon sent me the wrong regional code version of this Bluray.
I purchased this in 2012. I never got around to opening it until today. I think they sent me the wrong region too, since it's not playing on my PS3 and it has the same rating. I wonder if Amazon will still replace it....

Length of episodes
Each episode lasts 90 minutes.

I don't know if anything was cut when they were shown on TV, but even if there was, since this is a BBC disc I think it's safe to say everything will be uncut.
