I'm in shock. Look, I have a blanket.  
If you didn't catch Sherlock last night on BBC1, then you missed a helluva show.

Do whatever you can to catch it.

It really is the best thing I've seen on television for a long time.

Downloaded it from Usenet earlier, together with Top Gear and Leverage. Watched all three in a row. I must say, this has been one of the greatest tv watching evenings in a while.

The idea is brilliant and so is the execution. The actors, marvelous. At first, I was a bit skeptical about the actor playing Holmes but then I warmed up to him.

As for the R.B. Downey/Jude Law movie, you really should see it. It is another marvelous portrayal of the characters. I'd go so far as to say, there are many parallels between the movie and last night's episode.

Mentioning of Mycroft, the small glimpses of Moriarty's hand (figuratively and physically), the total boredom at not having anything to do....

As for Law's Watson, he keeps the limp throughout the movie, but is not bumbling at all. After all, he's a military man and a doctor. Of course, most doctors don't usually beat bad guys into submission, to, presumably give them medical help after. At least, I assume he did, although it's never stated in the movie.

Benedict Cumberbatch (the guy playing Holmes) had been on a show I watch on Sunday morning called Something For The Weekend - it's a kinda chat show with recipes on BBC2, perfect Sunday morning programming, plus the presenter is one of the few people in the world who agrees with me that coriander/cilantro tastes like soap... - so I'd kinda warmed to him before the show started.

I absolutely loved this show, it was so cleverly done!

I will watch the movie, there's no cinema near me and downloading/streaming's a bit hit and miss for me latelt. It's definitely on my 'must see' list!
