    It is beyond awesome, and a really fresh take on the characters and story.

    I know of three seasons out...they call them Series 1, 2, and 3 and there are like 3 two-hour movies per Series. I think it'll be something great to take the sting out of Walter White's death.

    Storyline

    In this modernized version of the Conan Doyle characters, using his detective plots, Sherlock Holmes lives in early 21st century London and acts more cocky towards Scotland Yard's detective inspector Lestrade because he's actually less confident. Doctor Watson is now a fairly young veteran of the Afghan war, less adoring and more active.

    You record this shit Dave, so when you wake-n-bake on the weekends or stay awake nights you can watch smart, engaing TV, or 'the telly" if you're an old rich-ass English motherfucker. But they're always running Honey-Boo-Boo for you, Dave...you're good.

    Sherlock is one of the best shows on TV, in any country. The writing is first rate, and the lead actors are two of the best of this generation. You might recognize the actors from The Hobbit and Star Trek Into The Dark since Sherlock plays Khan and the dragon in The Hobbit while Dr Watson is the star of The Hobbit.

    you do passively kill them off before they're finished though. for example: Torchwood.

    i watched Jekyll last spring. That was pretty good. The special effects were a bit much but it had a good story.

    Sherlock is damn good. CUmberbatch is an awesome actor. He;s supposedly up for a major part in the new Star Wars films.
