I just discovered the British TV series “Sherlock”, a recreation of the Sir Arthor Conan Doyle’s detective character Sherlock Holmes.
As with many British series, excellent!!!! The two actors, Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman as Watson are splendid. Finally when I picture Holmes, I no longer picture Holmes as looking like Philip St. John Basil Rathbone. Kudos to the director and everyone involved in its making.
My only critique is that it seems to jump the shark a little; Holmes is just to over the top. But, I guess heroes being like that is in the telly. Also, the episodes are complex. Like, I still don’t get the significance of the pink dress the victim was wearing in one of the episodes.
The series is also available on NetFlix streaming.
I finished watching the 22 episodes on Netflix. It might also be available on Hulu and on the show’s web page. This is originally an ABC Family network show.
Excellent show! I couldn’t stop watching it. The actors were awesome. Imagine, the two teen girls learn that they were switched at birth. Not only that, they are from two different socioeconomic sides of the tracks. I also like that one of the “factors” of this show is that one of the teens is deaf, so there is use of ASL and that whole world is given some welcome recognition in media.
“Switched at Birth,” a one-hour scripted drama, tells the story of two teenage girls who discover they were accidentally switched as newborns in the hospital. …. Things come to a dramatic head when both families meet and struggle to learn how to live together for the sake of the girls.*
