TV gushing


Last week was the season 2 finale of Sherlock on PBS.  
I just feel like I need to implore you once again, dear readers, to give this show a try.
It's 2 seasons.
Each season only has 3 episodes.
90 minutes per episode.
And they pack a wallop.

I'm going to say that I think it's the best thing on TV in years.
The casting is perfection.
The characters are endearing.
The dialog is snappy and witty.
The story lines are sharp and intriguing.

Benedict Cumberbatch is the best thing since....I don't even know what. At first I wasn't sure how to take him as the famous Sherlock Holmes.  But he won me over before I was even half way through the first episode.  His performance is magic.  His facial expressions and wit make the show.

Martin Freeman, well, I became a huge fan of his years ago when he was on the British version of The Office. I just can't wait for him to be Bilbo this December.  He is the perfect Dr. Watson.  The finale of season 2 was his shining moment.  Wow.

So there's a little TV gushing for you.
I haven't done that in a while.
But this show is too good to just breeze by.
Looking for something fun to watch this summer?
Sherlock is it.

Fantastic! Did you just LOVE the season 2 finale, which I'm guessing you saw a while ago since it aired over there way before it did over here? I want to watch it 20 more times.
