I am in total agreement with this!
I absolutely love Sherlock Homles in general - read the complete series as just a kid and then, when Jeremy Brett performed on that PBS series, I knew
I had found my perfect embodiment of Mr. Holmes.
Then the NEW Sherlock came along - updated, and with Mr. Cumberbatch. At first, I was dubious. By the second show, I was as entirely hooked as I had
been on the other version. They are so incredibly different that there is no sense comparing the two. The treatment of modern tech in the new
Sherlock is seamless, and the piercing-eyed Cumberbatch, masterfully plays the mentally gifted, socially inept (but does it really matter? nope)
Holmes. And tons of class. Yes, that too! LOVE Mycroft, too. The dysfunctional family is a nice, hilarious touch as well.
(Mycroft: (pouring tea) I'll play Mother... Sherlock: And that is an entire childhood in a nutshell... LOL!!!)
