I Have Seen The New Sherlock Holmes

(The television series, that is). It's everything they claim. Possibly better.

Also? "This is a three-patch problem," may be the best bit of timewarp retconning evar.

Give it a glance!

(Hat-tip to Phlegmmie, second person I heard rave about the new version -- first was a co-worker).

Thought you were referring to the Robert Downey Jr. one, and I was confused where the quote came from :). I had no idea there was a new series - thanks for the heads-up!

Tango Juliet said...

I saw one episode. I think it could grow on me.

Roberta X said...

I've seen two. It did.

Seen both on on my local Peoples Broadcasting System Begathon Station, making sure it becomes part of our regular lineup.

LabRat said...

Oh, yes. I quite like. They've done a doozy of a job of taking the old canon and updating and referencing it in ways that make sense without coming off as too full of their own cleverness.

I really like their Lestrade, as well.

Bubblehead: Unfortunately, it's only a three-episode set, so next week is the last for this go-round. BUT, the Beeb has ordered another set of three, so there will be more -- just not right off the bat.

Montie said...


Oh yes, very nicely updated, I'm only sorry that after next week we have to wait awhile for the next set.

On a completely different note, did you catch any of the new AMC zombie series "The Walking Dead". Saw the first episode last night and it was pretty good. AMC apparntly bought in for 13 episodes right off the bat.

(Heh,shades of Harry Reed, word verif: mandup)

Joanna - did not know more had been funded, my impression had been that it was cancelled rather than being meant as a three-show series.

And yes, the third entry is just as good as the first two. Saw it some while back, thanks to Usenet.

I have Comcast and they store this shows, along with a bunch more, to allow you to watch'em at some later time.

I've watched the first two and I like the "new" John Watson. After all, he's family!

The new Mycroft is...really creepy.
