    Yea! It’s a great series and written by the guy who wrote Dr Who and I knew that by just watching the first episode of the first series!

    I loved Jeremy Brett in the Sherlock series done in the late eighties/nineties. He’s my ultimate Sherlock. But Ben here does a pretty good job! And the end is a cliffhanger and very clever.

    Enjoy!

      Russel T Davis is amazing! I looked him up on IMDB and was shocked at how many things he’s written and directed that I didn’t even know about. I will have to catch up.

    Glad you re-posted this, Alica. I much prefer this to “men with sexy abs” posts. 😉 Nothing wrong with digging hot guys, of course… Just love that you dig guys of substance. I could totally see Sherlock crushing on you!

      I try not to discriminate in my ogling and fantasizing of men. There are all sorts of attributes that make men hot, And I like to savor all of them 🙂 *squee* I would love it if he was crushing on me! (fades into fantasy land)

    That looks really fun! I LOVE cop shows and mystery shows, so this is right up my alley. But, how do you watch a BBC show? I have the basic form of cable. 🙂

      PBS is going to show Season Two starting Sunday- and it’s popular enough you should be able to find it at a video store- but Netflix definitely! I hope you get a chance to watch it.

    Good news for you: the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are free for download to your Kindle from Amazon. How cool is that?

    Alicia- While Jeremy Britt is Sherlock Holmes personified. I LOVE THIS SHERLOCK. Watched Sunday and was surprised I didn’t wake Michael up as I tend to talk to the tv. I can not wait for him to see it. Until then I have to keep my mouth shut. Don’t want to ruin it for him.

        It was! We don’t have a DVR but luckily PBS will have it on its website. That’s how he’ll catch it.

    My family loves this series, Alica! My husband and son are excited to watch season two. We saw the first season through Netflix. I love the way the tale has been modernized, but the characters and cases are still intact. And yes, you should read the books!
