Grumble grumble grumble.

This article says the 2nd season of Sherlock might not air in the States until early 2012.

Finally, I can read this thread!

Lynne and I watched 'A Study in Pink' the other night together, courtesy of Netflix, on my laptop, on our respective laps, as the sound was very soft. 

Wow!  Brilliant! 

I had read 'Hound of the Baskervilles' ages ago as a kid, and enjoyed the film with Basil Rathbone.  But, otherwise not a ACD fan.  I tried to watch the Downey-Law bromance, but found it insufferable, and had to turn it off after 30 minutes.

This version caught me from the very beginning.  Lynne too. 

Mr. Cumberbatch's Sherlock is physically interesting:  very pale, very dark, crystalline eyes; brilliance and insecurity portrayed perfectly. 

Mr. Freeeman's Watson is an excellent foil:  smart, needy, complex, all portrayed understatedly.  The 'not my date' patter is fantastic. 

I watched the second episode last night, and am saddened to understand they only made three!

London looks terrific--even with the 'blurred' effects.

The dialogue is faster than any episode of 'The West Wing'!  I may have to watch them again.

BTW, I loved seeing Rupert Graves again.  (Freddy from 'A Room with a View' and Scudder from 'Maurice'.) (We're the same age.  :P)

Welcome to the club, Paul!  I have yet to see the first one, but I have hopes they'll repeat all three before resuming new episodes. (Meanwhile, my LOTR bells are ringing knowing Martin is playing Bilbo and Benedict will be the voice of Smaug the dragon in "The Hobbit.")

Yes, Tru.  And thanks, Meryl. 

OK, I'm watching the third (and last) one just now. 

Best line(s):

Sherlock:  "Meretricious"

Lestrade:  "And Happy New Year"

They are filming season 2 as we write.  I'm disappointed at the subject for each of the 3 episodes, but there is not much I can do about it.

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.
