SHERLOCK

No, not the one with Lucy Liu. : p

Does anyone here watch the BBC Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman?!

I loved this show. (Aside from the Hounds of Baskerville episode...) I'm eagerly awaiting January 1 for it's return. And the finale for season two was just.....blarghhh

I watched it after people raved about it for months... But I didn't like it at all. The mysteries are really dumb, and while Watson is OK, none of the other characters are interesting or likeable.

It's like watching a show from the 1970's, but in HD... except not a good show form the 1970's...

Perception and reception are subjective, so to each their own : )

Regardless, I love Benedict Cumberbatch. and British humour/dark humour... Blackadder and the like. : p

But I hear you. I had friends hype up The Wire, after a few episodes I wanted to call it quits. It was slow. It was not my cup of tea to say the least. But I have this incessant need to know what happens to a storyline, and I went through the entire series in 2 weeks. By far one of my favourite shows to date!!

I know! Three episodes per season is not enough!

But with the male leads becoming more and more popular in the industry, I don't see them finding time to film more episodes for Sherlock : (

I think I'm going to skip the teaser. I feel we've waited long enough, and that time alone has been a damn tease. haha. I'm sure the teaser will be good though!

It could be the british humor. I can't think of any british shows I like, except Top Gear (although even that has been shitty the last 2-3 "series")

The second episode and third episodes will air on January 5th and January 12th, meaning that UK Sherlock fans will get two episodes in one week to make up for the two year wait.
source: BBC Confirms 'Sherlock' Season 3 UK Premiere Date & Releases Official Synopsis

January 1 for ep 1.

Of course these are all BBC dates : ) I think 3 episodes per season is not only habitual of the series, but a characteristic of it. As far as I've read, there doesn't seem to be more coming...someone correct me if I'm wrong??

haha. I think that's a safe deduction. You'd be hard pressed to find a British show you will like then...

side bar: I do recommend The Wire though. (not Brit tv. American). Seriously great tv.

It's a great show. Rewatched it a couple of time already. Each episode is precise and to the point. There are no useless extra details included. Each is a mini-movie in its own right. The mysteries are dumb? Seriously? You are certainly not a fan of Doyle's Sherlock either then. The script is clever incorporating the original stories with its own interpretation.

I find it much better than the majority of US shows which drag on and on. They are dreadful.

I use mediahint add-on for chrome. It's not in chrome playstore, you have to download it from their website but it works wonders for hulu as well as bbc iplayer.

Great ep, looking forward to the weeks to come
