    Sherlock is a British television series produced by Hartswood Films for BBC Wales, co-produced with WGBH Boston for its Masterpiece anthology series. It was created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, who wrote one episode each. Paul McGuigan directed the first and third episodes; Euros Lyn directed the second, which was written by Stephen Thompson.
    It is a contemporary update of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes detective stories, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr. Watson. Una Stubbs appears as their landlady Mrs. Hudson, and Rupert Graves as DI Lestrade.
    Filming took place at various locations, including London and Cardiff. The three-part series was transmitted on BBC One and BBC HD, in July and August 2010. The critical reception was mostly very positive. These episodes, along with the unaired pilot, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK on 30 August 2010. Following the critical acclaim that the first episode attracted, BBC executives were reportedly interested in commissioning more stories. On 10 August 2010, it was confirmed that Sherlock has been renewed for a second series.

    So yeah, this show is absolutely fucking amazing. There's not a damn thing wrong with it and it became one of my all-time favourite television shows within the first 10 minutes. XD

    I had to download torrents of the show due to my being in America. Facepalm

    So... anyone else like it? Anyone else like the Sherlock Holmes series in general? If so you NEED to watch this. It's so perfect. You'll love it...

    I saw this on YouTube. Happy face It's amazing.
    It's done in the most perfect way to do a modernization. They left some of the best elements, kept even the people familiar with the stories guessing, and was just amazingly quoteable.
    John: You don't have a girlfriend, then?
    Sherlock: Girlfriend? No. Not really my area.
    John: Oh, right. Do you have a...boyfriend? Which is fine, by the way.
    Sherlock: I know it's fine. * Stares*
    John: ...So you've got a boyfriend then.
    Sherlock: No.
    John: Right. Ok. You're unattatched. Just like me. Fine. Good.
    Sherlock: John, erm, I think you should know that I consider myself married to my work, and while I'm flattered by your interest, I'm really not looking for any-

    I KNOW, RIGHT?!?
    It's a Sherlock Holmes fans wet dream. XD I was freaking out how accurate even the blog they have for Watson was. It's just so sdkjfnksdjnf In Love

    And even someone who's not that into Sherlock can get into it. My little sisters only introduction to the series is about 80% of the new Sherlock Holmes movie with RDJ and Jude Law. I sat her down to watch this with me and she absolutely adored it. tehe

    The blog is epic, I love Harriet. lmfao
    And Sherlock was just like, "No. It didn't happen this way. You suck."

    Benedict Cumberbatch.... How much more British can you get? XD

    They're going to make more, and hopefully it'll be airing on my side of the Atlantic sometime soon.
    Weird

    Hooray! XD I love that this show was only released in the UK and we're the only people who've posted in this thread and we're not-English. XD

    I don't miss Watson's 'stache either.
    Though I do love it on Jude... it'd look silly on Martin. tehe

    Yay! Irony!

    The music sounded so much like Hans Zimmer's score for the Guy Ritchie movie. Twitch

    Oh Martin... tehe
    I thought he looked like a blond Robert Sean Leonard in this.
    Wilson-House/Watson-Holmes may be permanently seared into my brain though.

    At first I was like, "That's it!? OMFG" but then later I was just like, "Oh my, I love you... lmfao"

    I loved the little visual aids that would pop up. tehe

    I love that Mrs. Hudson was kind of a Holmes/Watson fangirl.
    "There's an extra bedroom upstairs if you'll be needing two bedrooms...."

    And the head in the fridge.... lmfao

    And how Sherlock had that guy turn around because his face was distracting him from thinking.

    It's all so brilliant.

    Everything about it is great. There's seriously nothing bad about the entire series. XD
    I even like the PC (or is she a DI?) that keeps calling Sherlock "freak". XD

    Lestrade is great...

    OMG I LOVE MYCROFT SO MUCH! In Love

    Donovan. She got on my nerves, but in a funny way? XD

    Oh my god, rewatching the cell phone profiling scene, Benedict does not need to freaking breathe! OMFG

    "No, she was´╗┐ leaving an angry note in German. OF COURSE SHE WAS WRITNG 'RACHEL!'"
    The irony of this part... lmfao

    "Shut up."
    "i didn't say anything."
    "You were thinking, it's annoying."
    They're so mean to Lestrade in this....
    XD

    Mycroft was epic. OMGYES And the random hot chick that John was hitting on.
    XD

    Wilson-House/Watson-Holmes may be permanently seared into my brain though.
    I have that seared into my brain too tehe But that's what's so awesome. Their relationship is damn near identical to House an Wilson's! And the way they sort of taunt each other on Watson's blog, too.

    Although I really thought the movie had a lot more of a House-Wilson dynamic than is apparent in this show. I suppose it'll all come out later, though. Plus, how cute was it that Sherlock didn't rat on John for killing the murderer?

    That's his only human moment. He doesn't care that John had to go to court for the graffiti, even.
