I am currently buried underneath a mountain of tissues, and my sleeping companion is Vicks VapoRub. But something wonderful happened over the last three days of illness: I discovered Sherlock.
If you’re like me, you probably search regularly through the depths of Netflix, searching for a new movie or TV series to enjoy. In my wonderful, feverish state, I finally gave in to the phenomenon known as ‘Sherlock’. I’ve never been a fan of British TV. There’s nothing wrong with it, I just never got into it. But when I saw this on Netflix, I just couldn’t resist anymore. And let me tell you, I’m glad I gave in.
If you’ve never heard of it (which I sincerely hope is not the case), Sherlock is a show based on the Sherlock Holmes books. But the beauty of it is that it’s reimagined in the modern day. In a few words, it’s nothing short of genius.
It’s clever, gripping, and so perfectly British. Not only that, but it cleverly interprets the classic Sherlock Holmes books and remains quite accurate. All of the actors are dang attractive, to boot. The only thing missing is Sherlock uttering those famous words “Elementary, my dear Watson”.
In my experience, there’s only one show that can release six episodes, take a two year hiatus, and still cause pandemonium upon its return. I will be forever grateful that I discovered it after that break, but now that I have finished I am having some serious withdrawal. How did you people do it for two years?!
In short, if you’re looking to watch a new TV series, but don’t want to take the next seventeen years to get through it, check Sherlock out. I promise you will not regret it!
Until next time,
