Sherlock

Sherlock

It’s nice to watch a TV series (or even films for that matter) that are based from the books we love. One example is Sherlock, a TV series starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Doctor John Watson. Creators of this TV series based the story from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes obviously. But what attracted me most is how the TV series came up with a modern day version of the characters and stories.

Unlike with other TV series, a season of Sherlock only has 3 episodes of 90 minutes each. That is rather long as compared to the other TV shows. It is the chemistry of Cumberbatch and Freeman as a duo (A trio if you’re going to include Rupert Graves as DI Greg Lestrade) that also made me binge-watch.

Of course, the original Sherlock Holmes story appeared in 1887 and many things have changed since then. So putting them in the present day of social media, text messaging, GPS, and other 21st century technology has put everyone interested plus the good acting of Cumberbatch and Freeman. Need I say more?

I’m subscribed to Netflix and iFlix and binge-watching has become a weekend habit. But then again, I need to read more crime fiction, too.
