This is one of the best new series in years. Intriguing, mysterious and humourous, it succeeds at every level with classy writing, innovative direction and great acting. It's true to the vision created by Doyle and brilliantly translated into the new century.

May the BBC keep it going.

After one has eperienced the Granada TV series starring Jeremy Brett there will never be another Holmes. No one can portrey Sherlock Holmes like Brett did. No matter how they try these atempts by others are in vein. It is a pity. I don not believe that there will ever be a production that will satisfy the true "Sherlockian" again.

SHERLOCK FITS IN THE 21st CENTURY

By Rob, the Mystery Lover

Comments about PBS Masterpiece Mystery!: Sherlock Season 1 DVD (Original U.K. Unedited Edition):

The producers of SHERLOCK managed to do what would appear to be a difficult if not impossible task: to create a new idea of how to do still yet another Sherlock Holmes series. Holmes has been done so many times in movies,television,radio, stage and books with varying success. What could they do to get a new fresh perspective?

Their idea was to take him out of the late 19th century and put him into the 21st century. A modernization of the Holmes saga was attempted once before when Universal Studios made a dozen Sherlock Holmes movies with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, updating the setting to the mid 20th century. That series is perhaps the best known and liked of all Holmes movies by many, even to this day. But that was 70 years ago. Can Holmes actually fit into today's vastly different world?

Amazingly he seems right at home in the contemporary world, as done in this series. Thanks to the writers, producers, actors and the rest of the staff, one easily and instantly accepts this Holmes and Watson as being the beloved characters. Even Mrs. Hudson and LaStrade are well done. The mysteries are interesting and exciting in the Holmes tradition, blending a flavor of the Victorian era with the world of modern technology. But most of all, the interactions of the characters are what is most stressed and the thing that makes this series so appealing. It's the best Holmes done in years and deserves a rightful place among the best ever done.

Comments about PBS Masterpiece Mystery!: Sherlock Season 1 DVD (Original U.K. Unedited Edition):

I love this show! I bought all 3 seasons so far and they are all wonderful. I was hooked since the first episode, and now my family is hooked, too! It keeps you guessing (and guessing wrong) till the end.

Comments about PBS Masterpiece Mystery!: Sherlock Season 1 DVD (Original U.K. Unedited Edition):

This is one of the best shows on TV. The story-lines and characters are fantastic! My whole family (including a jr. high and a college student - both girls) looks forward to it, so we bought the first three seasons, and are watching it for a 2nd or 3rd time now. Can't wait for season four!!
