For those who have yet to watch any of the new BBC series, here is a quick description. Sherlock is a modern adaptation of the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as written by Steve Moffat (Of Dr. Who fame). What really makes it charming is how true the series is to the original stories, constantly making allusions to Doyle's works. All the titles are plays on original titles (Study in Pink, Scandal in Belgravia, etc). Rather than fighting in the old Afghan war, Watson returns wounded from the recent one.
Some witty writing, great direction, and solid cinematography, and charming cast make a fun watch for fans of the books and newcomers alike. Each episode is an hour and a half, the length of a short film. The second season/series is currently airing on BBC one, and discussion is ripe about the new episodes. It could take a little while to get through the first 3 episodes, but they are well worth the watch.
So for those who have already watched... discuss!
