styckx: The first two seasons worth giving a watch?


Sherlock is one of the best shows on TV in the last decade.

The first two series (six episodes) range from "pretty good" to "my mind is blown".  I think Scandal in Belgravia is probably the best.  The weakest, maybe The Hounds of Baskerville.

Still HIGHLY recommended.

eeyore102: Uchiha_Cycliste: DemonEater: One the article missed:

Holmes specifically describes a situation as "nebulous".

Nebulous is a radio comedy starring Sherlock writer/Mycroft portrayer Mark Gatiss.

I also suspect that maybe the plane we saw at the very end of the last episode might have been GERTI (Golf Echo Romeo Tango India)

Nah, the plane we saw was way too posh to be GERTI. GERTI's supposed to be held together by string, duct tape, and the fervent prayers of its crew.


Well, it *was* carrying Mycroft, right? So they touched up the paint.

styckx: The first two seasons worth giving a watch?


Loved season 1, hadn't seen anything like it before. Loved the idea of getting three movie-length shows a week apart from each other. Hated having to wait for season 2.

Season 2 ep 1 blew my mind. Some of the finest writing/plotting we've had on TV in a long time. Caveat Emptor, that's IMHO, I know some guys who found it weak, but I think they timed Irene Adler's appearance in the ongoing stories correctly -- the Jeremy Brett series brought Adler in early, which was a mistake. If you have a compelling character who is inherently mysterious, you benefit from bringing in a love interest later for the purposes of character development.

Season 2 ep 2 and 3 were good but... Ep 2 was pretty much a standalone, which has its good points and bad. Ep 3 was also fun, but it suffered by virtue of the fact that it was cliff-hangerish, and then you have to wait 2 years to figure out what comes next.

Season 3 ep 1 is where the show started to fall apart for me. Too much melodrama between Watson and Sherlock, not enough of a proper villain. Not enough sleuthing in general. I watched it a second time thinking "We waited two years for this?"

Season 3 ep 2 was initially another let-down, but it improves on a second viewing. One of the major problems with the show at this point, though, is made manifest in the flashbacks we get to Sherlock and Watson going out on cases. We only get glimpses of them, and I can't help but wondering "Hey, we might have liked to have actually seen those cases!" One of the drawbacks of only doing three episodes a year, I suppose.

Season 3 ep 3... Started great, then the villain disappears, then he comes back, then there's this big ending, and it's like Season 2 ep 3 all over again, lots of jeopardy, and then hoo! Big twist! Basically, a cynical point of view on the show is that nothing that happened in it really mattered, because there was no consequence.

So, yeah, tl/dr and csb combined, the show hit its zenith in Scandal in Belgravia, and has been on the downslope ever since. Hopefully it'll right its ship.

Again, though, just my opinion.

The "east wind" in the original story was World War I.
