2014.01.22 UPDATE: The streaming option at PBS has now expired. All 6 episodes from seasons 1 & 2 are available via Netflix streaming: HERE.
I saw this notification from PBS and thought I might not be the only one who is just discovering the PBS Masterpiece Mystery series, Sherlock.
I stumbled onto the show in the last couple of weeks. Prior to that, I knew the show was on TV, but – when I first heard about it – I wasn’t too keen on the idea of a Sherlock Holmes adaptation set in present day.
I think I was under the weather when the first episode was recently rebroadcast. Too lazy to look for something else, I watched it. It was quite entertaining … in large part because of the relationship between Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Watson (Martín Freeman.)
So far, I’ve seen A Study in Pink, The Blind Banker, and The Hounds of Baskerville. All of them took an interesting, even sly, slant on the classic versions. The series is both fresh and respectful. (And there’s a fair bit of funny – always a good thing.)
The new season starts this Sunday, but you can catch all the previous episodes online.
