Sherlock (TV-Series 2010)

Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes

– Shut up!
– I didn’t say anything!
– You were thinking, its annoying.

Yet another Sherlock TV adaptation? Dark streets, gas lights and horse-drawn coaches? Yes and no. Obviously it’s an Sherlock adoption, but its adopted to our current time. Mobile phones instead of telegrams, web researches instead of reading dusty books and all other modern gimmicks.  Does this hurt the ambiance and thrill of a good old detective story with Holmes and Watson? Hell no! The BBC adaptation is great. Steven Moffat (Jekyll, Doctor Who) and Mark Gatiss made a thrilling and entertaining roller-coaster ride. Sherlock is a brilliant genius but lacks social skills. Watson is the partner in crime and a one of the few or only friend of Holmes.

The story, surprise, surprise, consist of difficult criminal cases which Holmes solves. I really like the case in the first episode. The case in the second episode wasn’t as good and the third one was fun but way over the top. And that’s it =(. Only three episodes aired this year. At least each episode is one and half hour long. And the BBC confirmed that there will be new episodes next year.

I enjoyed the three episodes and really recommend it to everyone.
