The best Sherlock ever! Here in season 2 the last episode was so amazing in every way, I think I watched it 3 times. I have worked in show business for 40 years...it takes a good bit to impress me.

Fans of season one will LOVE this. And they know why it's a must. I do agree that ironically the most popular Sherlock Holmes story "Hounds of the Baskervilles" is a bit of a let down, yet when you consider the kid who's playing it is also the werewolf in Britain's (far better than america's) show "Almost Human" it brings a bit of cheek to it. In the end, i loved this second series as much as i loved the first.

Good. But not nearly as good as people's high ratings would suggest. The cast is perfect but the mysteries are insubstantial and just plain uninteresting. Feels like the plot is flowing through like water through a colander. In other words - a lot of style and not enough substance.

This season matches, if not exceeds the quality of Season One. The updating of Holmes and Watson to the modern day has three of the most famous tales updated in different ways as well, but it is very, very effective. Cumberbatch is outstanding as the rude, brilliant, resourceful, and frequently oblivious great detective. Freeman is well cast as the exasperated Watson, trying to make sense of his counterpart. The stories move briskly along, the characterization is just right, and it leaves you wanting more. I look forward to Season Three.

The main character is rude, has a large ego, and makes things more complicated than they need to be. You WILL fall in love with him. Played by the up and coming British actor Benedict Cumberbatch; the modern twist on Sherlock Holmes will have you eagerly awaiting the third season. Good luck.

Season 2 is even better than the first. The friendship and working relationship between Holmes and Watson grows stronger, but the moodiness of Holmes often puts Watson's patience to the test. Furthermore, Watson is frequently put at risk by his inferior detecting skills and his partner's extreme focus on his own thoughts, making him oblivious to danger. Sherlock's ego and promise to never make a critical mistake again prove to be, as always, his Achille's heel.

Sherlock: Punch me.
John: What?
Sherlock: I said punch me, in the face. Did you not hear me?
John: I always hear punch me in the face when your talking, it's just usually subtext.

(PBS) A Scandal in Belgravia: The central enigma concerns Irene Adler, a beautiful entrepreneur whose special relationship with the rich, powerful and royal has allowed her to amass coveted information powerful enough to topple the government. A worthy match for the aloof detective, Adler masterfully maneuvers her many assets in a game that Sherlock is ill-prepared to fight: love. Two brilliant minds lock together, producing a heat that brings a blush to John's cheek and a potential change to a celibate, cerebral detective. But who will come out on top?
The Hounds of Baskerville: Boredom has set in at 221 Baker Street, with Sherlock jonesing for a meaty case and — in its absence — a cigarette. Only the arrival of Henry Knight, terrorized and desperately clinging to sanity, piques the consulting detective's interest. A gigantic hound — part tourist attraction, part conspiracy theory, part demonic moor stalker — is legend around Baskerville, a top-secret military compound where, it's rumored, chemical and biological weapons experiments are conducted on genetically engineered animals. And Henry Knight has just seen the hound's footprints in the very location where it killed his father decades before. Sherlock gleefully sets off to track the demonic hound with John at his side and Mycroft's access-granting government ID on hand to enter the high-security corridors of Baskerville. But he may have opened doors to a realm where deduction and reason have no place.
The Reichenbach Fall: While Sherlock accrues unwanted accolades and press in gratitude for his mystery-solving prowess and John pointlessly counsels humility, the insane criminal mastermind Jim Moriarty is busy plotting the crime of the century. But bringing Britain to its knees is just a prelude for Sherlock's arch-nemesis, who orchestrates a perilous cat-and-mouse game with the object of his obsession. In a season finale both mind-blowing and gut-wrenching, the consulting detective and consulting criminal engage in an escalating series of high-stakes face-offs which begin in the courtroom and end in the solution of a diabolical and inescapable "final problem."
