    Amazing Season 3 of SHERLOCK!

    The third season (or series as they call them in the U.K.) answers in the first episode what happened in the final episode of season 2. Each season of SHERLOCK is three 90-minute feature length episodes. Each season is complete on 2 Blu-ray disc sets. Set in current day, the performances of Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and the rest of the cast are top notch. Humor and intrigue mix perfectly especially with the give and take between Holmes and Watson. I have a 60-inch Samsung 3D television, and the images from the Blu-ray discs are amazing. The audio is superb. I know I can watch these episodes on TV, but this is like owning a fine set of literature that you can return to anytime you wish. This set, as well as Seasons 1 & 2 are well worth your purchasing.

    Slow but Satisfying

    The show takes a slight stumble in series three, as Sherlock and John are reunited after Holmes' "death" in series two. Moffat's and Gatis's explanation for his fakery is a frustrating cop out, although Sherlock quickly handwaves the situation, as if to say, "the solution isn't necessary," but for a show and character who revolves around The Solution, it may leave viewers somewhat turned off. The other two episodes are fleeting fun and C.A. Magnussen is a slimy new villain, but he doesn't seem nearly as personally interesting as Moriarty. His "threat" is in his influence, although if Holmes hadn't whacked his hive, he wouldn't have had any interest in the sleuth -- Sherlock continues to be his own worst enemy. His solution to Magnussen is... Well, watch it. You're either gonna love it or hate it. If you liked Series one and two, you'll like three, warts and all. It's still Sherlock; it's still Watson; it's still Moffat and Gatis -- for what that's worth.

    You say, "only 3 episodes in a season?" Well, these are feature length stories with quality scripts and some remarkable cinematography. Cumberbatch is brilliant in his character's self defined "high functioning sociopath" persona, which I think works perfectly for Sherlock. I am a fan also of Elementary, the current network version of Sherlock Holmes. BBC's character has a joie de vivre in his work that is very different from CBS' darkly driven one. The rapport been Holmes and Watson feels natural and true which really makes the show work. This is a very different as a series. Instead of a dozen or so episodes where the story is broken up between all or a few, these feel like three complete movies. I won't give anything away, but there is a mind blowing scene in this season where someone is shot, that you'll want to replay a few times. I would definitely start with season 1, tho if you've not seen them. ;-)

    The Best Modern Day Sherlock yet.

    While I'm a fan of the original novels of Sherlock Holmes, I feel the this series brings a fresh, updated approach to the character in a modern day settings with all the new tools availabled today that the original holmes novel did not have at the time they were written over 100 years ago, YET the bulk of the detective work still remains true to the original Sherlock Holmes observational skills. Brilliantly played by Benedict Cumberbatch (Holmes) and Martin Freeman (Dr. Watson)., the two play against each other flawlessly. Season 3 resumes 2 years later than the prior season's (2) episode 3, where apparently Holmes jumped to his death at Barts Hospital. It seems he somehow survived the jump and was abroad for 2 Years, In summation, all 3 episodes of Season 3 will not disapoint and I will eagerly await Season 4 when it comes out in 2015.

    Sherlock leads the TV entertainment pack.

    As good as the American take on a modern day Sherlock Holmes can be in the contemporary TV show ''Elementary'', British creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat's ''Sherlock'' tops it by a good measure. Actors Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as the fully capable Dr. Watson have lent their considerable talents to the creation of entirely new personas for the pair of classic detectives. A full stable of equally talented supporting characters supercharge each episode, and the quality writing provides a barrage of intricate plot twists while still paying homage to Doyle's original creatons and their adventures. This show will be a delight to any viewer, but start with the first of the three seasons' sets before jumping into this one..

    one of the best shows on television

    If you find the idea of sherlock holmes stories being set in the modern era to be a concept that could possibly be a complete train wreck you are not alone, I was skeptical at first having read a few of the books and wasn't sure about this show. But it works! It's absolutely brilliant. The core of the characters remains more faithful to the original despite the stories not being totally true to the source material. But it's very creative and intelligent, the plot is well written and the acting is also good, my only gripe is that it's looking like I may have to wait two years for season four. I've decided not to give away any plot points here but would highly recommend giving sherlock a chance, it's simply put one of the best shows on television.

    Sherlock is

    Sherlock is the modern adaptation of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusting sidekick Dr. John Watson. Season three begins with the return of Holmes, portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch, to London and 221B Baker Street. You can just imagine how Dr. Watson, portrayed by Martin Freeman, reacts to his "dead" friend returning. The stories are well written and contain interesting plot twists but, best of all is the rapport among the actors which make these episodes fun to watch. It's a shame that Sherlock seasons are so short but that may be what makes these shows so entertaining. If you haven't seen seasons one and two you must go back and watch them. You won't be disappointed.

    Another excellent season

    Or "series", for our friends across the pond. Once again, Sherlock proves to be one of the best miniseries (or show in general, for that matter) of this time. I must admit, when I was first told the name, I thought, "Oh." But when I was told it was a modern interpretation of the Sherlock Holmes stories, it was something more like, "Oh!" I didn't know what kind of a treat I was in for at the time, but am so glad to have become a thorough Sherlock addict. Admittedly, the previous 2 seasons were probably better overall, however this one undid the paradigm of the middle episode being mediocre. I feel that the second episode of this season was the strongest one.
