It really is fantastic! I liked the more traditional Guy Ritchie film as well, very entertaining. But there's just something really cool and clever about the BBC series.

Absolutely superb. Under usual circumstances I'd call a run of three episodes criminal, but given they're essentially three films, I'll give it to 'em.

Gorgeously acted, directed, everything. Beautiful series.

Is that region-specific for Netflix? I just searched and couldn't find anything, and you've whet my appetite for some good Holmes action.

The BBC one's just called "Sherlock," so if you've been typing "Holmes" that could be it.

Features Benedict Cumberbatch (yes, really) and Martin Freeman, if you can search like that. I've never used Netflix myself, not sure.

EDIT: http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Masterpiece-Mystery-Sherlock-Series-1/70151278?strkid=2111367581_0_0&lnkctr=srchrd-sr&strackid=51c8e478a0a8f2c6_0_srl&trkid=222336 This'll probably be it. Not sure where "Masterpiece Mystery" comes from. Accurate enough, but a tacky label and I've never heard it used before.

Other than the recent film with Downey and Jude Law, I've never seen a Holmes film/TV production. And I've read all the stories multiple times. Maybe I should rectify that.

Just saw the movie tonight, and was in such a Holmes-y mood that I watched the first episode of the show. Both of them were brilliant in different ways. The film had really cool action sequences (loved all the Steadicam), and I love that the show transfers to modern times so well. Can't wait to watch the other two episodes

I'd recorded the whole of Series 1 to watch sometime. Decided to start today.

8 hours later I've watched all of series one and the first episode tonight. absolutely incredible!
what I said about Series 2 Episode 1 in another thread: "Wow. There's 364 days left in the year. If anything beats that in terms of script writing, acting, visuals .. ANYTHING I will be surprised. That was truly incredible television."

Just saw this series over the past couple of days on Netflix. I abolutely LOVE this show. I was radically bummed out to learn that there are only three episodes to watch. I cannot wait to see more of this incredible series. Very well acted, directed and the stories are crafted very, very well. Cumberbatch is an amazing Holmes. Best Sherlock Holmes depiction I have seen in a long, long time, and the modern aspect makes it that much more richer in my opinion. Kudos to the BBC in this one. I give it four stars. I'd give it five, but there are only three shows damnit!!  :biggrin:

As of six hours ago, there are actually four episodes! And there'll be six by January 15th.

Get cracking, Tempus. The new one's a corker. Even by Sherlock standards.

That was a fantastic first episode of the series! Maybe even the best one they've done so far, the way it came together at the end was fantastic.

It definitely won't be online anywhere legally other than iPlayer, which I think you need to be in the UK to have access to.

It isn't available out of the UK legally, but...yeah, I found it online 20 minutes after it ended.  :P

I loved the first episode. On first watch, it seemed to drag a bit with all the twist endings, but on the second watch, it moved a lot more quickly, and the way everything tied together, even the throwaway cases at the start, was sheer brilliance. One of the best things Moffat's written, and he's written a LOT of good things. Can't wait for next week.
