So today I’ll be reviewing on of the most trending shows right now in the TV world. BBC’s Sherlock is one of the most famous shows besides Supernatural and Doctor Who, which is why many fans today call the mashup of shows ‘Superwholock.’ As a Wholock myself, both shows are very appealing, but right now I am really drawn towards the premise of Sherlock.
The series begins with John Watson, a war-torn veteran from Afghanistan, and Sherlock Holmes, a brilliant consulting detective, meeting up in the laboratory of the police department. Curious about Sherlock, John does a little bit of research on him and soon he finds himself being pulled into the detective’s crazy theories, unsettling crime-solving, and they eventually face off with some of the world’s most horrifying criminals.
There are currently three seasons of Sherlock right now, although I have heard a fourth season will be released in 2016. There are three episodes in each season, and the shows range over an hour, which is a long time for some shows, but trust me, this show needs all the time they can get.
My favorite character in the show is John Watson. Throughout the shows, we see his unwavering loyalty to Sherlock and his willingness to stand by his best friend’s side no matter what danger he might be put in. To me, this is very inspirational, and it easily makes him my favorite.
Out of all the seasons, there were only two episodes I had to skip, which is quite good for a show, I dare say! There were a few swear words in the show, but overall, it managed to stay pretty clean minus the episodes in which I skipped.
That’s my review on BBC’s Sherlock. Fans, stayed tuned for the next season coming out in 2016! We’ll be waiting to see what this show has in store for us!
