I haven't been excited for a premiere of a show like this in a long time! Sherlock is fantastic and I cannot wait for more
It doesn't really work that way. There are particualr rights issues involved because the BBC gets government funding from the Brits and BBC America and BBC proper are less synergistic than would seem logical. That's why BBC America runs so much crap (even though they have good stuff on there too).
It's a bit like having sex with a jellyfish: once might an interesting experiment, twice would be perversion!
You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.
Huzzah, can't wait
Buy The Gathering
It's not showing in the US until May 6th, apparently.
I like this show, but I would like it more at 60 minutes instead of 90. The latter two episodes especially felt like they dragged on a bit.
You never did the Kenosha Kid
Unlike a lot of the other Sherlock interpretations, not written by Doyle, this show did just about everything right with the characters, story telling and presentation. Even with the modernization, it seems to hold true to most of the Doyle cannon and only embellishes it (rather than giving Watson a signature choke-hold or poking fun at Sherlock's disguises.)
