And it's going to be paired with Downton Abbey.  My wife is going to freak out with happiness.

Good.  America could use more quality television.
 
2013-10-23 01:35:21 PM  
Why PBS and not BBCA?  Or will it be both?

Anyway - Good.
 
2013-10-23 01:38:06 PM  
Who the hell cares when it's going to premier on PBS? We're all going to stream it immediately after it come on in the UK anyway.

Buggers! Previously they had said it would premiere on the 1st, not the 19th.

Anyways, Sherlock must have had Molly prepare a corpse that looked just like him, and he had to have fallen into the garbage truck that drove away when John hit the ground. I can't see any other way he survived. Any other thoughts?

I'll contribute to the inevitable debate over the aesthetic merits of Benedict Cumberbatch by noting that my wife and teenage daughter both start shifting around in their seats whenever he is on screen, accompanied by much crossing and uncrossing of their legs.

Is this going to be like your typical BBC series where they film six episodes and call it a "season" and then go on hiatus for a year?

/ok I'm exaggerating

Would you rather have ten hours of true quality television or twenty hours of mostly mediocre tv with an occasional good bit?
 
2013-10-23 02:45:03 PM  
Really shocked that they are going to be airing it so close to the UK...it's like they LISTENED to people who said "seriously, you're screwing yourselves over by waiting so long".  Here's hoping they don't cut it up like they have in the past...

It's three episodes per series.  Always has been.  But on the bright side, if it had been longer, we probably wouldn't still be getting new Sherlock because both actors would have bolted for Hollywood by now.

Brett was awesome. And I'm enjoying Cumberbatch just as much. The two can co-exist - they're different enough.

It's actually a lot better now that Watson actually does some Watsoning, rather than pout like she did for basically the whole first season.

Why does it have to be one or the other?  The US Office had more great episodes in its second season than the British version had in its entirety.  Sure, it didn't last, but sometimes you can do quantity AND quality.

/Though in this particular case, there's no way Cumberbatch, Freeman, and Moffat could do more, so I'm willing to take what we get.

I've never seen an episode of Sherlock yet and I'm afraid it's too late. If I ever did, all I'd see is Khan having an opium habit.

Agreed, plus her transition into that role has allowed for Miller's Holmes to undergo small changes to his personality. He's fascinating to watch.

TV's Vinnie: I've never seen an episode of Sherlock yet and I'm afraid it's too late. If I ever did, all I'd see is Khan having an opium habit.


It's not too late. There's only six episodes and they're all on Netflix and iTunes. Benedict is completely different in this role than he is as Khan, but then he's the sort of actor that just kind of disappears into the role he's playing. Give it a shot, you won't regret it. It's a marvelous show.

Also, Sherlock hasn't done anything harder than nicotine and alcohol so far on the show -- he's a recovering addict in this version. Not sure whether they plan to have him relapse at all.

There are 6 episodes that take all of 18 hours to watch.  And Sherlock isn't a drug addict in the series.  Can't help you if you don't have the ability to imagine that the same actor can play different roles.

Brett was the most authentic to the original time period, especially with the beautiful sets of Victorian London.

I was sold on the updating from the opening scene of the first episode - Dr Watson is still just back from Afghanistan, this time wounded by a Taliban IED instead of a Jezail bullet.

Both series are excellent - occasionally TV rises to the occasion of great literature.

No, you won't.  The dude can act.You will have few problems differentiating the characters, and besides, Martin Freeman is also utterly worth it.

I missed the part about him being a recovering addict, I thought they just had him be a tobacco smoker.  They did a nice little comic bit in one of the episodes, I think it was "The Hounds of Baskerville," about the effects of him trying to quite smoking.

I didn't expect a premiere before mid-February, so I am quite happy.

After her "Tribute to Astronomically, Utterly, Ghastly, Incredibly Bad Acting" soliloquy from Kill Bill, I run screaming whenever I see her picture or hear her name.
That scene alone ruined that movie for me for all eternity.

After you watched it, you'd probably wonder why Sherlock was on a spaceship.  His character is far more developed in the TV show than in the Star Trek movie.

She does have the corset, but I'm pretty sure she never learned her place.

Tell that to Ed O'Neil. No matter what role he's in, it's always "Al Bundy as an ____" or "Al Bundy as an _____".

Ha ha, bad math.  Today's been one of those days.

9 hours.  Just looking forward to the next 4 1/2 (as long as PBS doesn't cut it up again).
