Just Bananas About: Week of 1/9/12

Happy New Year!  New year, so many new shows to watch.  One I have been extremely eager about was Sherlock on BBC.  And let me tell you it doesn’t disappoint.

It starts off right where we leave off in Series 1 as Moriarty is toying with Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Watson (Martin Freeman).  However, we can’t kill Sherlock right?  So how to continue the series and keep it interesting?

With humor, of course!  What they cannot do with a dash a thrill, they make up with humor.  Then soon after, Sherlock and Watson are on another case and it seems Irene Adler (Lara Pulver) leaves them with quite an impression.  I’ve seen her as a fairy on True Blood and as Guy’s sister on Robin Hood but playing such an iconic literary character cannot be easy.  Everyone has got their own idea of how this character should be depicted.  Although, I was impressed.

Combine that with some fine writing (and an excellent use of graphics), the twists and turns keep you on your toes and what you have is an excellent start to Series 2.  I can’t wait to watch “The Hound of the Baskervilles” next!
