Sherlock Series One - My Review
So I started with Series 1 Episode 1 - "A Study in Pink", loosely based upon the first Sherlock Holmes novel A Study in Scarlet. The story depicts the introduction of Holmes to Watson, and them entering a flatshare at Baker Street in London, and then their investigation into a series of deaths, initially believed to be suicides.
This was a nice follow up to the first episode. I don't think it was a wow episode like the first but I enjoyed the story and of course the companionship of Holmes and Watson. I liked Watson's date and after what happens to her I would be surprised if they dated much longer.
I had a rough time liking Sherlock in this episode. I know it's his character but man he makes it hard to like him some times. I loved that Watson called him out and got upset.. it was very well done. I enjoyed Moriarty.. I was surprised to find out that he was Molly's "boyfriend". He's kind of creepy and weird but a good addition to the cast. This episode ended on a HUGE cliffhanger and I am so glad I didn't have to wait a year for the conclusion like everyone else. I was also very thankful that my buddy got me both season 1 and 2.
It was almost midnight and I was exhausted but I couldn't go to sleep until I found out what happen, so I watched the first episode of series 2, well at least the first 5 minutes where they concluded the cliffhanger and moved on with the story.. but that's where I stopped for the night.
My over all thoughts on Sherlock Series one. WOW, WOW and more WOW. This series is everything that everyone has said. It meet and exceeded my expectations. I couldn't get over the chemistry of Freeman and Cumberbatch. I mean the written is great but what really draws me to this series is the unlikely friendship between Holmes and Watson.
I can't wait to watch series 2!!!
