Default Sherlock (TV series)



I'm certain that there was a thread about this show here at one point, but I could not find it. Either way, the show's back for the second season, and I think the first episode was the best so far.

For those who don't know about the show, it's a modern British take on the character. Although Downey's movie may have revived interest in the character, I can guarantee you the show is nothing like the movie. It is much less flashy, but filled with better story and suspense. It won the inaugural BAFTA(aka British Academy Award) for Best Drama Series.

Like I said, it's a modern take on Sherlock Holmes, set in modern day London. The portrayal of Sherlock in this version will admittedly take some getting used to, but you'll eventually come to like their interpretation. Also, its not your typical 30 min/1 hr format, instead each episode taking about an hour and half. Consequently, there were only three episodes per series.

For anyone interested in Sherlock Holmes, or just well made mysteries/thrillers, I suggest you look into this.

Big Sherlock Holmes fan since I was a kid. I watch the old PBS shows whenever they come on. What channel is this one on, BBC? What nights does it come on?

BBC airs it over there, but I can't give any specifics as for time since I watch the episodes online. I do know PBS picked up the series for American audiences, but I don't know when they'll show the second season here on the channel. I do know the new season just started today, if that helps at all.

yeah, that's why they are putting of the next series of Doctor Who for a couple months.... so Moffat has more time to write episodes of Sherlock.

I've just read some Sherlock Holmes books/short stories and I have to say that this portrayal is closer to the book Sherlock than Downey's portrayal. I actually enjoyed it...can't say that about the movies.

Web mini-episode. I think it returns on BBC on 1/1/14. The previous season was available online for a week after the initial telecast.

There will be 3 90 minute episodes that will air on the BBC on 1/1 1/5 and 1/12. I believe on PBS starting around 1/19 they will start. Best show on TV imo.

If y'all dig British shows then be sure to watch Black Mirror. It's incredible.

If you have Direct TV, it comes on the audience channel. If not, you can stream episodes online.

For British shows.... Dr. Who, Foyle's War, Agatha Christie's Poirot, Wallander, Blackadder, Shameless and The Inbetweeners are all good British shows that are on Netflix.
