We were riveted by the first episode of the BBC’s clever adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, set in 2010. Sherlock is as brilliant, eccentric and surprising as he should be, with lots of thrilling outside-the-box thinking. PBS’ Masterpiece Mystery will be airing three 90-minute episodes of Sherlock. (Check the site for airing times in your area.)
With thanks to Kottke for reminding us.
