“Sherlock” is a British series aired on BBC America and PBS. BBC America is where many famous series have been aired such as “Being Human”, “Top Gear” (Mr. Arnt’s favorite!), and “Musketeers”. The show is not only addicting but it will bring you to the edge of your chair. The TV show has a genre of both drama and action  It is recommended for teenagers and adults, not for children under the age of 12.

“Sherlock” is about a man named Sherlock Holmes, who lives on the outskirts of London with a brilliant talent. His mind works like no other, and can figure out a crime scene in a matter of minutes. His partner Dr. John Watson, a veteran who served in the Army as a medical doctor, helps him figure out some of the intense crimes. John and Sherlock are famous because of John’s blog which he writes only about the cases that  Sherlock and him solve. The fame leads to more dangerous crimes with mysterious and treacherous criminals. Sherlock and Watson are faced with spine chilling obstacles that will define, or ruin their reputation. The series is based on the famous stories written by Sir. Arthur Conan Doyle.

“Sherlock” is directed by Paul McGuigan, Euros Lyn, Toby Haynes, Colm McCarthy, and Nick Hurran. The main actors includes Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, also famous and well known for being in The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Each show is usually two hours long (Including commercials). We enjoyed “Sherlock” because it is never boring and it contains very good acting. I highly suggest that you watch one episode since you will most likely finish all three seasons. Sherlock has a fourth season coming out next year and is currently being filmed right now.  You can find “Sherlock” on Netflix, PBS, or BBC.
