Sherlock is a must watch

If you missed it, I tried to warn you. The PBS Masterpiece Mystery presentation of Sherlock was even better than I expected. This was simply a superb adaptation, bringing Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective into the 21st century! I watched it with my kids (16 and 12) and we all enjoyed it immensely.  sherlockpbs

Whether or not you’ve read the books, you can enjoy this production. The two leads, Benedict Cumberbatch (have you ever heard a more British name than that?) and Martin Freeman, have a real chemistry. The script was fantastic, using on-screen text to show how Holmes’ mind works.  The modernization of the technology employed by the deductive genius were spot on. I can't wait for the next two episodes and am glad to hear they will produce more in the future.  Check your local listings for rebroadcasts of the first episode or watch it online here, and set your DVR so you don’t miss the next two. Trust me on this one.

More to Come.
