The first series is worth catching.

Just finishing the second, not sure what to think right now. Somehow Moriarty had a fake Holmes? And the only person able to make a clear determination just happened to take a hit to the head.

Moriarty was excellently portrayed I thought. That bit upset me the most out of the entire series!

I was really surprised that happened with Moriarty.

As for Sherlock, I was thinking back to how the Woman had faked her own death and his body. Additionally, your attention is focused on the body but a flatbed truck pulls away at the top of the frame.

iMDB has air dates for Series 3!!!

The first two episodes are called
Spoiler
The third is still untitled. They'll air September 15, 22, and 29 - I assume those are the BBC dates, no word about the PBS air dates that I know of.

So! I have come in to say I like Bilbo better than Kahn.

and that I have been bored and trolling the internet for tidbits and have heard this:

"rat, wedding, bow" to describe season three. and that Lars Mikkelson is going to play a bad guy in one of the upcoming episodes.

Carry on.

Not just a bad guy. One of the best bad guys in the canon from one of the better stories that really showcases Holmes at his most absolute Holmes-ian : displaying strength of character, mind, and body along with a clearer regard for justice than towards the law. Plus, he totally makes this girl FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM just to crack the case and then stands her up completely and drops out of her life with zero explanation and is all, "oh, she'll get over it, she is, after all, ONE OF THE LOWER CLASSES AND YOU KNOW HOW THEY ARE, WATSON" as his excuse in one of the more OH CONAN DOYLE NO moments in all of canon.

Did anybody catch the new one today? I just finished it.

Lestrade's reaction to Sherlock's return was my favorite.

Loved it! So well written - the reactions of both Watson, Lestrade and Mrs Hudson were so different, but each so brilliantly spot on!
Also, his parents are actually played by Cumberbatch's real parents, both respected actors in their own right! Nice touch I thought!

Not sure if it has aired over in the US, so also don't want to spoil anything. Just really happy that it was worth the wait!

HURRY UP DOWNTOWN ABBEY. They're selling the season video on PBS now before the other episodes of Downtown Abbey finish airing so why not just give me my Sherlock NOW?!

I thought the final episode last night (His Last Vow), was superb! What a nasty piece of work Magnussen was. Expertly played by Lars Mikklesen!
Hopefully we won't have to wait long for the 4th series!

Marathoned all three episodes. So many things were done right, from the writing to the direction to the acting. I enjoyed every single bit. And I fell in love with Mary so quickly.

Mary is great. I just started watching this show about a month ago, marathoned through the first two seasons on Netflix and then caught the others via torrents. Really, hands down, the best adaptation of Sherlock Holmes ever. I watch Elementary, and I liked the two RDJr movies, but they no longer feel like Sherlock Holmes to me anymore so much as just talented detectives. Cumberbatch simply exudes Sherlock in a  way that no one else ever has.

I'm not sure of its reputation, but I've been getting my Sherlock info from Metro. They have a few articles with terrible reactions to the show and its portrayal. Myself, I don't see it any different than the modern takes on Richard III or Cariolanus.

Looking forward to the end of Season 4 and the return of Lars Mikkelsen.
