    everything you have heard about this movie is true.

    I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.

    The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.

    If this show is to continue then I believe that Det. Bell should be allowed to get/take credit for his contributions which lead to the resolution of cases. To me the character known as Det. Bell is only allowed to perform the part of "lackey", running down leads and contributing to cases in a cursory manner but never being given direct credit for solving a case. I may be mistaken on this point but even if that is true I still believe that Det. Bell should be afforded more credit for case resolution. I believe that over the years Joan's role in case resolution has increased as we are presumably lead to believe that her skills have been honed. Why shouldn't the same hold true for Det. Bell.

    Just like any other BBC sherlock fan or perhaps any classic sherlock holmes fan I would've had the same skeptical thoughts about this series, but the moment I watched the first episode, I was instantly hooked right from the very start. It does a pretty damn great job in keeping it fresh and original but simultaneously maintaining the faithfulness of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories in terms of atmosphere and character persona. It's a procedural drama just like the novels.Jonny Lee Miller is an amazing Holmes, remarkably done and top-notch. I find everything about him charming; his charisma, his wit, his vocabulary, and don't get me started on his dedictions (what's a sherlock holmes without it). I've noticed that Jonny's incarnation is much sentimental unlike the Holmes he recognise from the novels or any film such as falling in love (with Irene), making friends, becomes driven by anger, and so on. I might as well not compare it to Benedict since both versions are fantastic but very different.Lucy Liu on the other hand is a much worthier update of Watson, she possess deductive skills that is almost as equal to Sherlock's, therefore being a detective in her own right. There are also a feminist tone in her personality, the way her actions appear on screen screams strength and independence and that's what I like more about her character: she's compelling, brave, and inspiring. While Martin's version is cute, hers is fierce. It would a crime if I would decide which Sherlock adaptation is better, this or the Benedict Cumberbatch one, to me nothing stands out between the two, they are both fantastic shows in their own unique way.

    They took inspiration from an amazing character, Sherlock Holmes, and made it into a drama series. Classic American, stupid, always dramatic and making way too many episodes.
