"Two years after Sherlocks death, Dr. John Watson has got on with his life. But, with London under threat of a devastating terrorist attack, Sherlock is about to stage his outrageous resurrection. But if he thinks everything will be just as he left it, hes in for a very big surprise".......
Where does this series show? I don’t guess I have ever heard of it.
Yet another ‘different’ take on the Holmes character.
Quite well produced.
On tumblr, for two weeks they’ve been discussing this, posting gifs and pix, you name it. It’s hard to believe it hasn’t officially been seen in the US yet!
Decisions, decisions—The Mentalist or Sherlock Holmes? Which to choose?
Darn, I don’t get PBS. I used to get it back before they went to digital. The odd thing is when I got PBS, I only got around 5 channels over the air.
Now I get over 15 but none are PBS. I really liked the Jeremy Brett series.
In the interest of full disclosure I'm a big Holmes fan - except for the two Robert Downey movies - and I think that "Elementary" is the best TV show to come along in a very long time.
Have you rescanned for stations lately?
Holmes. Baker, the Aussie, not the address, is a re-run. Football’s screwing up/giving the programming morons a break, um, excuse not to do their jobs.
Actually I scanned for new ones yesterday. I used to get PBS from Florida State in Tallahassee but now can’t get anything other than Panama City or Dothan, Alabama.
All the old stations changed from a single program to 4 a piece but still no PBS. I have noticed that one of my televisions will pick up more channels than the other one and they use the same outside antenna.
Sherlock is one of the few shows that doesn't insult the viewer's intelligence.
It also hold a record you won't find on any award show: It's gotten me to write. I'm dyslexic, I hate writing, and I have a hard time putting things into words. I failed nearly every English class I ever took. Yet, I currently have 3 Sherlock episodes in progress, and my proofreaders say they're really good!
Apparently, people can be conned into watching virtually anything these days. Rather similar to Holmes in this particular bit of lassitude, as narrated by Conan Doyle, enjoying a regular injection of cocaine or morphine because he is otherwise bored with life (do pls read the first chapter of "The Sign of Four" before you author a disagreement with this observation).
Frankly, I'm somewhat amazed that the leftist producers of such tripe haven't seized upon the literarily correct opportunity to use Holmes as a medium for even more subversion of what used to be ordinary personal responsibility, by featuring the character's use of opiates and other chemical stimulants. Of course, this television production disdains presenting its re-creation of Holmes with any warts at all. Evidently, it escapes noticing that Holmes's assorted personal defalcations were a good bit of his charm to the reader.
That makes it easy. Also checked Twitter, Mentalist is an hour earlier tonight for some reason. Good thing I don’t have TiVo it would never catch that show with all the schedule changes.
Holmes it is!
I liked the 3rd episode in season 3; His Last Vow. Thought that was good.
yes you do: PBS.org
Being a lifelong fan of the original Conan Doyle stories, and hearing that this was going to be a "modernization," when the first season came on, I thought I wouldn't like it. But I did.
It turns out the creators are also big fans of the original stories, and they have made a very entertaining modern version of the stories, true to the spirit.
Thanks but I can’t use my limited download credits to watch movies etc.
I live in a rural area where high speed internet is not available except by satellite. They finally offered a plan I could afford ($39.95 a month) but it is the cheapest one. It offers enough for normal surfing and even a few short vidoes etc. but not enough for movies.
I will say it is incredibly fast compared to dial-up. I wish I could afford the really fast ones but this slowest is fine for now.
Same here, I was prepared for disappointment like with Downeys movies. But It was good, I was even impressed with the opening music, and this from a big Basil Rathbone fan...
Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce were great. Unfortunately they had to work with some really cheap productions.
An interesting note. In one of the old movies, Dr. Watson sings “Loch Loman” with a girl. Sherlock tells him he is good enough to appear at the Royal Albert Hall and he is right. Bruce could really sing.
<Sherlock is one of the few shows that doesn’t insult the viewer’s intelligence.
My sister used to swear by this show and wonder why I didn’t watch it (I have cable and she doesn’t, plus I hate PBS). Anyway, I finally gave in and watched on Netflix. You are absolutely right - it is smart, quietly funny at times, and just a pleasure to watch compared to other BS on tv these days.
No, I haven’t tried an amplifier. I used to use one with the old analog channels. I might give it a try. My outside antenna is also an old one and is probably not tuned to get digital broadcasts. The Dothan, Alabama tower is actually in Florida and almost within sight.
The Panama City stations all have their towers well North of the city, obviously because there are not many viewers in the Gulf of Mexico. Back in the old days I could sometimes get Mobile, Alabama which is over a hundred miles away.
Amazon has two seasons and season three is available for pre order.
You can stream BBC One, and if you had, you’d have seen all 3 episodes already.
Yep. I’ve got 1 and 2, and mom preordered #3 for my birthday present, it just hasn’t gotten here yet :)
Then one day, my antenna fell over on its side and lo & behold...I got PBS...which is WXXI here. And there my antenna lay!!
I have something which I might just be able to use to make and antenna. I have around 20 of the old steel posts they used to and still use to hold up highway signs. They are around 12 feet high each and are very heavy and probably very strong.
Each one has a series of holes formed when they were made. I think I could use them by attaching two or more together and bolting to the side of the eaves after driving the first one into the ground. The only problem is they are really heavy.
I guess I could make a ladder out of them too. It would be extremely stout but also so heavy as to be difficult to move around.
Someplace on the web, I was able to get a schematic of where the best position would be for my antenna. Who knew a horizontal position would make a difference.
Anyways, the Sherlock that I missed, I can watch on Netflex.
Sure interesting characters and the show shoves your brain into overdrive.
Looks like an interesting project and not too hard to do.
Indeed. Very well put!
I pre-ordered Season 3 as well. I think they ship out next week! I managed to see the three episodes, but I want the DVDs so I can pause, and back up, and really study them! I love this show.
You may have to wait awhile for Season 3 to be on Netflix.
