Sherlock Holmes returns next Sunday to PBS' Masterpiece Mystery.

When this debuted last year I was skeptical - as a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, I thought all and any attempts at modernization to the present day were pointless and doomed to failure.

I was wrong. A great show, all around.

Is this Moffat's Sherlock? You've not had S2 yet?

Nope, we've not had S2 yet of Moffatt's Sherlock, which I say is complete BS!!! I'm so excited for its return on Sunday.

Awesome! Watched Season 1 and loved it. I was wondering if it was going to come back. Thanks for posting that, rugcat. :)

Old new if you are in a place that has released it or watched a pirated copy. Otherwise not. Our parade, you is raining on it.

Yay! I'm going to have to check out my DVR schedule. Hubs and I both like this show (and that's RARE LOL)

I thought I had missed it. Hurray! I haven't.

DVR is set. :D

I was figuring that I was going to have to buy Season 2 (already have the first) in order to see it. Very nice!

Took me awhile to realise this was the BBC produced Sherlock you were talking about.

Hey, it's not often we get something in the UK long before the US. Let us have our moment. :tongue

Waiting for it to start tonight.

Shame there's only 3, but I can forgive because they are so good.

Calla Lily

Oh, so good. So so so good.

My only complaint is that the timeline of the ep was stretched out a bit too much. But that's a personal preference.

Which one was it? The one with Irene Adler?

Calla Lily

Yes.

I am miffed that the edited it again. I wish they would just show the full episode.

It was edited? Blast.

Omitted several conversations that would have helped with continuity--like discussion between Sherlock and Mycroft that help explain Sherlock being codenamed 'the virgin'. Also scenes with Watson and girlfriend, dialogue from several characters.

I particularly don't get it when my station at least followed it with a 15 minute excruciatingly dull show on local restaurants.

Oh you're kidding! Oh dear. And that conversation about 'the virgin' was great.

Well, the leaving bits out explains why I felt a little lost last time. This time I blamed it on the thunderstorm taking out the middle. But I did like the beginning and the end.

I thought it was fantastic. I'm so impressed with the writers, the actors, and the videographers on this show. The Masterpiece Trust must be funded by people with a lot of money!

The show was great, but now it makes sense that things were edited.

Did they really need 5 minutes less of the show? PBS isn't typically on tight broadcast schedules...

Well, the BBC is subsidized by an entire country to some extent, I don't know what they charged PBS for it.

Yep, that would be us Brits.

And you know what, the BBC doesn't show ads here. Which is the main reason most of us pay our TV licences!

That and Radio 4. And the World Service.

I stand corrected. Yay Brits! I'll have to tell my husband.

Mirandashell, I'm optimistically assuming I'll get a chance to see the middle some time. What happened in the bits they edited out of the US version? At least what's the explanation for the virgin comment? Pleeeeeeeaaaaaaaase.

Oh gawd I can't remember now. It's been over 6 months since it was on here.

Someone else might remember though.

They lost me on the bad pseudoscience of Baskerville, but got me back with this one.
