The dialogue is faster than any episode of 'The West Wing'!  I may have to watch them again.
It bears repeating...and repeating...and repeating!!
BTW, I loved seeing Rupert Graves again.  (Freddy from 'A Room with a View' and Scudder from 'Maurice'.) (We're the same age.  :P)

Scudder in a trench coat...I love him!!
May 2019 be better for us all.

This was the last thread I looked at last night and so I dreamed about Sherlock. Don't remember many details except that he was working on the case of "Whatever Happened to August"!  :laugh:

Heh!

Our minds are funny places.  I wished I'd dreamed of Sherlock!  :-* :-* :-*

Instead, last thing I read was about the royal couple in California, and yeah, I dreamt about attending a soiree where the royal couple was to attend...

Someone over on IMDb posted that they are going to repeat the episodes on "BBC" starting July 20 Wednesday.  I don't know how that translates to other parts of the world.

Wow, thanks, del!  I'll have to make a note of it.  8)

I also really enjoyed these episodes...  I didn't think a Sherlock Holmes could be updated to the 21st century - but Sherlock's tendency to bluejack the smartphones of the entire press corps was a brilliant way to update him.  My favorite bit of memorable dialogue is where one of the Scotland Yard detectives called him "a psychopath" and he retorted "High functioning sociopath, do your research."
“Mr. Coyote always gets me good, boy,”  Ellery said, winking.  “Almost forgot what life was like before I got me my own personal coyote.”

Back in January they were saying the new episodes would be ready in September but I don't have any updated info. I'm keeping my Sunday evenings free in Sept though (except for Sept 11 when I have a date with Lady Liberty).

People on IMDb said originally it was to be fall of 2011, now they're saying it's going to be pushed to January 2012 in the U.S.  :(
