Well Moffat, you magnificent bášŧárd, you got me again. I decided to watch your version of Sherlock Holmes after I got tired of having to skip over the nattering of so many people on the Internet so I could stay spoiler free. And I am going to ask for no spoilers in the comments please.
So I watched the first installment last night. Wow. That’s how you update Sherlock Holmes and keep it real to the cannon. All the dialogue that was pulled from the books and inserted into the show was masterful(it should say additional dialogue by Sir Arthur). And putting modern sensibilities like cell phones and the Internet so seamlessly was brilliant.
The casting was top notch all across the board. You had me from the first shot to the end and I’ll follow this series wherever you want to take it.
I am grateful that we sat down and watched this show.
