The New Sherlock Holmes series
I am kind of ambivalent about this series. On the one hand, I love the repartee and some of the uses of technology. Love the actors and the great production values. And yet, boy the narrative gets a bit murky and lost amidst all the hoopla. What do you think? Are they too fond of wit and tech? Do they basically find the stories a bit of a bore and feel they need to submerge than in special fx?
Do we really need Irene Adler to be a dominatrix?
Or, here is the real question, do I need to watch this earlier in the evening when my brain cells are still on play?
