    This fifth outing is the best in the Sherlock series. The casts have continued to give the audience their best performance. The telling of the Season Four’s stories not only suppressed other stories based on Sherlock Holmes, it had dwarfed its own. The cases/episodes can be watch individually but they are (spoiler alert) connected together. I had watched them separately. The stories are fast pace so they require viewer’s full attention. I had watched the whole season again in one setting while a snow storm pounding out side. I found that I had appreciated the stories more the second time around. To borrow a phrase, it is a Jolly Good Shows.

    Ok when I watch films I do so on a 180" movie theater screen with full 7.1 surround sound and the Buttkicker transducer system. This is not to Boast but to give an idea of the clarity that I rate both 4k and 1080p films. 1st off regardless if you are huge into 4k or still collect Blu-ray; I will add that with today's (Oppo) upscaling technology along with upscaling technology on theater projectors that the difference between Blu-ray & 4k is minimal. I will say that going over 180" that you will likely see a difference and recommend 4k for 150"+ screens. I Love the Sherlock series & both the sound & visual quality BBC put into these bluray were fantastic!

    THE Best Sherlock Out There!

    I've tried giving the Elementary TV show a shot, to compare the two, but, while good, it just doesn't keep my attention enough to continue on with it like BBC's Sherlock has. Sherlock just gets better and better every series. The 90 minute long, 3-4 episode seasons make each individual story feel like a movie, with an over-arching theme between the whole show. This works FAR better than the episodic, cop-procedural seasons Elementary has. It is a solid case of less being more. Where smaller seasons keep the quality, intrigue, suspense, and excitement up for each new release, while eliminating the need for those inevitable 'filler' episodes American tv shows tend to have.

    One of the best shows on BBC

    This is one of the best shows on BBC. The packaging and picture quality are fantastic. The show is amazing. There's only three episodes but all three are very high quality big budget episodes. The other season's (2&3) overall are arguably much better than then season 4 however episode 2 of this season is my favorite out of the entire series which puts Sherlock against Culverton Smith in addition to the drama and emotions of that episodes make it the best - which is the reason I own this season. Had to go back and watch it again because it was so amazing.

    A decent finish to perhaps the final season

    I am a bit iffy on this particular season of Sherlock. As the series has progressed, it has gotten further and further away from solving crimes and more towards stylish action. The 3rd episode is especially different, introducing new Saw-like elements to the series. It goes away from its roots, but it does remain interesting and exciting. I simply prefer the show philosophy from the early years to what it has become. There are still excellent elements to the show, and this season, if final, would be a decent way to go out. For fans only. The discs themselves are excellent.

    A Nice Wrap Up

    As the casts' careers continue to explode, this was most likely the last season of the most intellectually stimulating drama series ever on television. It was a good good-bye, not a great one. The first episode was a little uneven, and the last seemed just off, but the star episode was "The Lying Detective". Ranking #2 on my list behind "His Last Vow", that episode was remarkable for its cast, its turns, and its heart. Tobie Jones deserves an Emmy for his stomach turning villain that echoes serial criminals in the real world. I loved this series.

    Still the best modern Sherlock Ever

    Be patient. The last episode is still the best and it's like the story of the surgeon who see the patient as being their son. There's no doubt in my mind that this current Sherlock incarnation as portrayed as being in the world of today is one of the best ever. The only other best of Sherlock was Jeremy Brett's version in his earlier portrayals. While Basil Rathbone's was, at one time, the best, modernizing Sherlock for modern times, brings the character and the story-telling to a wider audience.

    These episodes are more akin to Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes during the third series of short stories. The three episodes move at a rapid pace and it shows Sherlock s strengths and weaknesses. We see a much more savvy Mrs. Hudson. There is s major plot twist in the first episode which carries forward. I wish each season/series had more thanthree episodes. It remains very engaging and we are introduced to a more human Sherlock. Your time will be well spent watching the most recent series.
