Okay... I think I've just fallen in love with the Sherlock (BBC) series.
I've been a (sorta recent) fan of Sherlock Homes ever since I saw the 2009 movie made by Guy Ritchie. From that movie I immediately bought the original books written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I gotta say, it's damn entertaining. I do enjoy reading mysteries and crime, but Sherlock Holmes is by far the most enjoyable mystery/crime book I've ever read. You can never beat the classics.
Now about how I got sucked into watching Sherlock, I actually don't remember... No wait! I was waiting for the new episodes of Glee to come out... but you know how long that takes and all, so I decided to look for a new series to watch while waiting. I was contemplating on whether to watch Supernatural or Sherlock.
I decided to give Sherlock a go since I've read the book. Plus the people in Tumblr seems to enjoy it.
Never ever doubt the Tumblr people! They were right! It's a fantastic show. I had doubts at first because they modernize the Sherlock storyline, I mean who modernizes Sherlock Holmes? You can't do that, I thought to myself.
But man! I'm glad they did! It's very cool how they incorporate the original books' storyline into the series and updating it into the 21st century. Sherlock now solves crime using technology! How sweet is that?
And the casts! GOOD GRAVY THE CASTS! Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch are a perfect match! You can totally see their chemistry oozing out from the television (or in my case laptop screen, heh!) screen! Gosh they're so adorable! I really love Martin especially. He gets Dr. Watson. He really does. Dr. Watson is such a BAMF in this show. I want to squish him every time he goes on screen wearing such adorkable sweaters. Hahaha. XP
Lastly, the original book wasn't only about running around solving crimes after crimes, it's about friendship and loyalty between to people, Holmes and Watson. The Sherlock series did not forget this important element.
And that's why it's awesome. Totally.
SO GO WATCH IT NOW PEOPLE!
P.s: I can't wait for Season 2 to come out! *dies*
