The new BBC series: Sherlock
Ack! I just finished season 2 of the new BBC Sherlock series. I'm crying and laughing and dancing all at the same time.
It was amazing, it was brilliant, it was byooooooootiful! Now i know this isn't really book related, unless you count how the series is based on books, but I just have to share my love for it.
I LOOOOOVVVEEE it. Ok. I'll admit, I first laughed at my darling friends and their obsession... but I've been converted. I have seen the light!
It's so funny, so smart, so superfantastically awesome.
Here's the little storyline thingy:
Sherlock Holmes was always a modern man. It’s the world that got old. Now he’s back as he should be: edgy, contemporary, difficult – and dangerous – in three new dramas on BBC One. Watson, a doctor, soldier and war hero, is fresh from military service in Afghanistan. A chance encounter brings him into the world of Sherlock Holmes, a loner, detective and genius. The two men couldn’t be more different, but Sherlock’s inspired leaps of intellect, coupled with John’s pragmatism, soon forge an unbreakable alliance. A woman in pink lies dead in a derelict house, the fourth in a series of impossible suicides. DI Lestrade is the best Scotland Yard has got, but even he knows he can’t compare to the young man who can tell a software designer by his tie or an airline pilot by his thumb. Sherlock has a unique analytical mind, earning his living and staving off boredom by solving crimes. The weirder and more baffling the better… Across three thrilling, scary, action-packed and hugely entertaining episodes, Sherlock and John navigate a maze of cryptic clues and lethal killers to get at the truth.
