Promising setups that ALWAYS fall apart as an anticlimax. Teases of better stories to come that never develop into anything. Crimes are solved magically with off screen evidence never presented to the viewer. Poor and erratic attempts at character development. Watson is literally useless beyond the first episode, except as a damsel-in-distress that repeatedly needs rescuing. Plus, there's it's senseless misogyny (Irene Adler - the only character in the original stores to ever best Holmes), homophobia (Moriarty) and lazily written views on mental health (forgotten sister and Moriarty are so smart they're murderously insane). This series was NEVER good. The unaired pilot was the only good episode.

Wow. .. I'm unable to fully articulate how incredible this was. Artistically as a fictional piece of work it's well written and well played by all of the individuals in their respective roles. The plot is cleverly suspenseful with multiple intriguing, pull-you-in twists and a quick pace (but not so fast that the viewer misses any of the important events which both bring the conclusion to it's climax but also are critical to understanding the ending as well). The story opens door after metaphoric door and left me intellectually stimulated plus psychologically in awe and intrigued by which the human mind is capable. I would HIGHLY recommend this episode of Sherlock, especially if you like to be left with the urge to investigate the subject matter and topics /questions raised while watching. Furthermore, you will never be disappointed in anything under the Masterpiece Theatre umbrella

but outside of that, this is an extremely engaging, well-written show; (the writers producers are die-hard SH devotees) who have re-crafted the stories and characters, fitting them effortlessly into the twenty-first century -- so much so that I think if Conan-Doyle were to somehow come back and see these he'd be completely happy, as there is no limit to the scientific or psychological exploration that can be truly realized in this updated version . In fact, after having watched BBC's Sherlock, I can no longer be happy seeing the stuffy nineteenth-century Holmes and Watson ever again. I hope Cumberbatch and Freeman (whose chemistry is awesome) continue to grace our screens as the intrepid duo for a long time to come.
