Catch up on Sherlock, before the new season starts!

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.

TV show 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.

    I’ve yet to start watching Sherlock, but it is on my queue. Have you watched Elementary on CBS yet? One of the best shows on TV,

    • I haven’t watched Elementary. In fact, I think I was confused by the concurrent existence of two Holmes shows, on two different networks, at the same time. I suspect I’ll end up marathoning Elementary this summer. (We do that.) I’ve still got two episode of Sherlock to watch before I see the new one that airs tonight.

    I LOVE this show. LOVE. Thank you for reminding me that it was coming back! Have you listened to the radio drama version of “Neverwhere”? Benedict Cumberbatch has a part. That voice!

    • My favorite – by far – is A Scandal in Belgravia. I made my husband watch it with me last night. (My second viewing in a week.)

      Now that I’ve come to understand Cumberbatch’s appeal, I’ll have to look into Neverwhere. I assume google will lead me to it.
