Are you guys watching Season 2 of Sherlock on Masterpiece? Did you watch Season 1? Because so help me if you are not then you are missing. out. Go repent and make restitution. You can catch Season 1 on Netflix or see if your library has it.
GH and I watched the three 90-minute episodes of Season 1 last year and both told everyone we knew about them--GH more than me, I think. Just think of everything that the Guy Ritchie/Robert Downey Jr. movies did wrong (hint: they were action movies instead of brilliant detectivey movies), fix all of it, multiply to the 10th power of better, set it in contemporary London, make Watson a blogger, and you've got it.
Things that are awesome about Sherlock:
This show has me, for the first time in life, finding Benedict Cumberbatch attractive. Like, by a lot. Must be to do with the hair. Or perhaps the general brilliance and also skills. Either way, he is perfect as Holmes.
I love Martin Freeman as Watson. He was great as Tim in The Office, is great in this, and he is going to be great in The Hobbit, along with my friend Richard Armitage who I feel certain will push previously understood limits of dwarf attractiveness (my prediction, you saw it here).
The guys all wear scarves. Oh, British men . . .
Rupert Graves plays Inspector Lestrade. I love me some Rupert Graves. Remember that one time when he was Freddie in A Room with a View? That was awesome.
Moriarty is one evil freak but so help me I was starting to dig him during the pool scene. That is how crazy good these people are.
We just watched Sunday night's episode (the season premiere) and man it was good. Loved all of the Sherlock Holmes/Irene Adler stuff. Loved, loved, loved.
Run, don't walk, friends!
Has anybody else seen Sunday night's episode? Any thoughts?
