In all fairness, stj, you don't seem to care much for any show that you review. Oh well, to each his own.

Bought and watched both series, please tell me there's another one soon.
I've heard its going to be later this year, but because the actors are busy I have also heard it may be held back till 2014.
Yep, they apparently don't start production while the Spring, so it could be any time from Winter this year to Summer next year before it's on the air.
Well, at least it's going ahead.

Re: Anyone familiar with the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes? (spoiler

To sidestep back the sub-topic of Steve Moffat's back catalogue, his first TV work, Press Gang, does for the teen series what Sherlock does to Sherlock Holmes (and did it 10 years before Buffy). Well worth seeing...

Watching the new Elementary.

A new villain, possibly recurring, on the scene who has a history with Holmes.

His name is M.

The casting of M. is delightfully odd.

Yes, Vinnie Jones.

I've not seen the episode yet. I suspect that he's Sebastian Moran rather than Moriarty.

Yes, the first and last episodes. Unfortunately, it seems the legendary 40 minute first edit of the last episode no longer exists in any form :-(

Re: Anyone familiar with the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes? (spoiler

Steven Moffat worried that Elementary would damage the brand. Tonight's episode showed that it's Moffat who needs to play catch-up.

Re: Anyone familiar with the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes? (spoiler

I've been on a BBC kick as of late, and the wife and I just finished watching the series...

Wait a sec, when someone refers to a "series" in the UK, how does one know if they're refering to just a "series", or the entire run of the show.

Anywho, we just watched the entire run of the show...all 6 episodes. Each episode is amazing and has the production quality of a movie.

I believe the preferred British term for the overall show is "programme."

Yep. Or "show". Mind you, I've found myself at times using "season" when talking about British shows. Cultural osmosis and all that.

Re: Anyone familiar with the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes? (spoiler

Well, I finished The Reichenbach Fall. But I think I've made it plain what I found unacceptable about Sherlock. Enough beating a dead horse. Call the knackers.

M's true identity didn't occur to me beforehand. But every moment I saw him before the reveal, his identity as Moriarty was unbelievable and unfitting. Thus the denouement made a great introduction to the true Morariarty, who is still left conveniently left off stage, for now.

Strange thing, it's really become interchangeable. I'm railing against it and saying series even for American shows now though. But on the subject it reminded me of this...
