( Spoilers for whatever Sherlock Holmes show that was. )
A while back I saw people start posting about a new Sherlock Holmes show, so I immediately downloaded the latest thing I could find. I've loved Sherlock Holmes since I was a kid--I used to watch the old Rathbone episodes with my parents, and I reread the collected mysteries pretty much every year when I was younger. Of course I wanted more Holmes! This one was set in Victorian London, Watson was played by Ianto from Torchwood, and all the characters were astonishingly boring.
I was horrified to see that it seemed to be acquiring a fandom, because the show itself was so mediocre that I just couldn't bring myself to watch it.
But mercy was at hand! Turns out fandom was talking about another Sherlock Holmes tv series that just came out, this one set in modern London. And lo! It was freaking awesome! The first episode absolutely blew me away.( Spoilers for A Study in Pink )
The second episode, not so much.( Spoilers for The Blind Banker )
Hopefully the third episode will be as good as the first, and I can repress knowledge of the second.
