caddisfly: Can someone please explain why Sherlock only produces three episodes per year?  I'm guessing it's Cumberbatch's filming schedule, but I find it amazing that such a highly rated show isn't being produced full throttle.


For one, Sherlock's episodes are 90 minutes long, so you're getting a feature-length movie each time out.  That can't be filmed in a day.  Two, UK programming doesn't need the metric assload of episodes shiatty US programming does.  They'd rather film less episodes that are great, than more episodes that end up sucking chrome at the end.  Three, everyone involved in the production of Sherlock has a bajillion other things on their plate, from movies to other TV shows, and so filming has to be worked around everyone's schedules.

I'd rather get three awesome, movie-length episodes, than 22 steaming 30-minute turds.
