i've been SHERLOCKed

i'm raving mad about this tv series: SHERLOCK! an ABC retelling of Sherlock Holmes story in contemporary setting. best OWH!

the Trailer:

the Main Characters:
Martin Freeman as Dr John Watson. ever loyal, steadfast and pleasant chap :)

Lana Pulver as the dominatrix Irene Adler or the Woman. she's superb!

Andrew Scott as Jim Moriarty. a psychopath in every sense. i love (and loathe) his ability to portray different characters oh so easily. like a second skin, you know.

the cold sod, Mycroft Holmes played by Mark Gatiss

the Couple, boleh?

Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes. the PERFECT embodiment, wouldn't have it any other way :)

the Great Game, where Moriarty first revealed himself
the series are up to its 3rd installment with the last cliffhanger was of Holmes jumping off a ledge to its death but yet appearing to observe Watson saying goodbye at his cemetery.

the Synopsis of the 1st and 2nd series are available here.

the Theme Tune:

the Review:
like i said, i am raving mad about this witty adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's masterpieces. please watch it to witness the brilliance of Sherlock Holmes living in current time. as if :grins:

the chemistry between the actors/actresses is simply life cracker. i love to loathe Moriarty, he is really annoying but the way he smoothly oscillates from one character to another is highly commendable. Mrs Hudson (Una Stubbs) and Molly (Louise Brealey) as supporting female arcs are really effective. as for the Woman, she is believable to be the Woman Sherlock could be attracted to. their scenes together are mostly electric that Watson mumbles off his middle name should the two procreate and have a son :) comel sangat owh!
