I really want to go see this. It's playing on Thursday, and as far as I can tell that's the last time they're showing it in Canada. Unfortunately I'm working, so I might not be able to.

The last episode totally redeemed the second one. That's as good a season finale as you're going to get.

I just finished watching all three episodes of this series last week, and it was great. I agree that the quality drops a bit for the second story, but I still think it's solid. It just pales in comparison to the other two, which are both stunning. I can't wait to see what happens next after the big cliffhanger.

I finally caught up with this and fell right in line with everyone else. It's really freaking awesome. It starts off amazingly, the second episode is definitely the weakest, but the third is simply awesome. I do wish it were a longer season, if only because the third episode is a bit overstuffed. The ambition is great, but I really wish they had more time to play with.

YAY!

Man, I love this series. I think it's that it feels so grounded in what makes the Sherlock Holmes stories so good, while also feeling new and fresh in a way that no other Holmes adaptation ever has.

I watched all three episodes yesterday, and I really enjoyed them.  Just a lot of fun and inventive. Can't wait for the new ones.

There's a very brief (~15 sec) promo for series 2 on YouTube. I'm stoked!

Just wanted to put in my two cents and agree with everyone else: this is a pretty great show. Frankly, these 3 episodes are so good that it makes me even less impressed with the Guy Ritchie film. There are plenty of reasons to be turned off by that movie, but Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are far better as Sherlock and Watson than Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law are.

Also, watching this show convinced me to check out Doctor Who, which was a very good idea indeed. I can't wait for the new season, but why do we have to wait until May for it? Sigh.

Don't worry there are 30+ seasons for you to catch up on.
