Yesterday I watched the first episode - "A Study in Pink" - of BBC's new Sherlock series.
I really LOVED it!! <3 It was brilliant and very entertaining. I enjoyed it so much. :-)
I didn't know anything about it beforehand, so I was actually a bit surprised to see that it takes place in contemporary London, with high-tech mobile phones, computers and all... ;-) I'm not really familiar with the classic Sherlock Holmes (I have only seen I think 1 episode of the Jeremy Brett series and read 1 or 2 stories), so I didn't mind the modern touch. I quite liked the idea of the text appearing on screen when they were sending/receiving text messages or the like.
It had some funny moments as well. :D For some reason Sherlock's "Why have I got this blanket? They keep putting this blanket on me." (and the rest of that dialogue) towards the end totally cracked me up. *rofl* IDK *g*
I think Benedict Cumberbatch was great as Sherlock! :-) And I can totally see why some people were reminded of The Doctor by him! I had that feeling most of the time, too. :D *g* Oh, and I love his voice!!
Martin Freeman, who I always liked since Love Actually, was fab as John Watson, too. :-) Nice to also see some of Watson's "dark", tormented side.
So, looking very much forward to the other 2 episodes! :-)
I definitely need some icons for this show. <3 So if anyone has a recommendation where to find good ones, let me know. ;-) Thanks!
Mhh, this has quite set me in the mood, so I might finally watch the Sherlock Holmes movie with RDJ/Law tonight (yeah, I still haven't seen that one *blushes*)... *lol*
