Product Description

Sherlock: Season Two (BBC/BD)

Amazon.ca

There is nothing elementary (a Holmesian cliché that this exceedingly smart and savvy series wisely shuns) about Sherlock. This sophomore season exceeds the pleasures and promise of the Emmy-nominated first season with three feature-length mysteries that fully test Holmes's mettle and cunning, and shake his very high self-regard. The first and third episodes do full justice to two figures who loom large in the Holmes canon. The first is Irene Adler (Lara Pulver), a.k.a. "the Woman," in "A Scandal in Belgravia," a ripping and naughty yarn involving a high-class dominatrix and some scandalous royal photos. The second, of course, is Moriarty (an Emmy-worthy Andrew Scott) in "The Reichenbach Fall," who hatches a mad scheme to bring about Holmes's ruination. The middle mystery is perhaps Holmes's best-known, "The Hounds of Baskerville," a psychological thriller that lacks the other two's worthy central adversaries, although Holmes's rare moment of bafflement sets the stage for the seemingly game-changing finale that has Dark Knight echoes. Sherlock's high concept--transplanting Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's master consulting detective to 21st-century London--is brilliantly realized, but at the heart of this series' success is the casting and chemistry between Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson, who chronicles their adventures in--what else--a blog. While some may make innuendo about the nature of their relationship, it is their friendship that unfolds by degrees that holds the most fascination. "I don't have friends," Holmes confesses to Watson in one of his rare quiet and less prickly moments. "I have one." Sherlock benefits from repeat viewings, not so much to decipher clues, but to savor the brilliant wordplay. Series three cannot arrive fast enough. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Amazing Show in the History of Television March 19 2012
By Wendy
I've already watched this season of Sherlock and I can't wait for this DVD to be released! BBC's Sherlock is an incredible show, whose only downfall is the fact that seasons have only 3 episodes! This modern take on Sherlock Holmes is flawlessly written by Mark Gatiss and Stephen Moffat and brought to life by the amazing talents of Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Martin Freeman (Watson). Season/Series 2 begins with the masterpiece "A Scandal in Belgravia" featuring 'The Woman' Irene Adler. Next, Sherlock tackles a classic tale with "The Hounds of Baskerville". And watch the epic Moriarty/Sherlock confrontation in the final episode of the season, "The Reichenbach Fall". If you haven't see this wonderful series, start watching it now. This DVD is a must have for Sherlock fans, I'm really hoping though that the North American Amazon sites will offer the Sherlock Series 1 and 2 Box Set, not just the separate seasons. The game, Mrs. Hudson, is on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant beyond belief! April 10 2012
By Gayle Gibson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I always thought that Jeremy Brett was the 'real' Sherlock Holmes. He still is the real Victorian hero, but Benedict Cumberpatch is showing how the world's first and only consulting detective would function and appear in the twenty-first century. The relationship between Homes and Watson is a classic male friendship;Martin Freeman knows how to show Watson's courage, intelligence and wit. He is not overshadowed by Cumberpatch's bravura performance, but makes it believable and human. The acting from all the cast is full of unexpected nuances with never a wrong note. The plots are intricate and fascinating and full of surprises. The pacing, editing and photography are heart-stoppingly beautiful. It's elegant, it's exciting, . . . it's the best TV series i've ever seen.

The series itself it 5 stars, however this product...not so much. Region-free, so I learned after opening it via the amazon.com reviews and google searching, means it does not play in most North American blu-ray players as it requires 50i playback. I own three Sony blu-ray players, and all I got was a black screen and no sound on all. Disappointed (and frustrated) that this risk was not better disclosed in the description on amazon.ca (not sure if this is seller or amazon responsiblity). I was able to find a friend that had a blu-ray with the capability to play this so gave it to them. Thank goodness for netflix! So 1 star for region free but 5 stars for Sherlock averages to 3 stars for my review. Excellent series though!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing third episode!! ???! Sept. 25 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Since this is a product review, 3 stars because my blu ray only has 2 episodes on it. Even though the back cover mentions the third episode ("The Reichenbach Fall"). If it had the third episode I'm sure I'd give 5 stars.

Is it only accessable via easter egg or am I totally gyped?? Kinda pissed off if I have to go and buy yet another blu ray just in the hopes it will have the third episode...and yet no guarantee...

If anyone knows of easter egg, let me know what to do! I can't find anything on that anywhere on the web...so I assume I'm screwed.

5.0 out of 5 stars omg, it got better... June 12 2014
Format:DVD
John and Sherlock are back, along with the rest of the perfect cast for season two. I keep expecting them to grow stale but they actually improve and advance the characters. The final episode, the Reichenbach Fall is smashing. Brilliantly unhinged Andrew Scott, playing Jim Moriarty steals every scene he is in, which shouldn't be possible playing alongside Benedict Cumberbach. And I can't get enough of Mark Gatiss' brilliant, snobbish Mycroft. There is also a good remake of the, ah, Hound story, and a slinky and gifted Irene Adler, brilliantly reimagined as a dominatrix. I would completely recommend and in fact rave about any entry in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a see-many-times May 16 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Very entertaining, intelligent. So much detail you cannot pick it all up in one viewing. Good for all the family although younger children won't get it. My 9 year old daughter loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock Season Two May 1 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Fantastic acting. I love the camera work (angles, lighting, special effects, etc.). The "special features" that appear on each disk help to increase my appreciation of the actors and series writers. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 STARS April 25 2014
By Sofie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
If I found a genie and he offered to grant me three wishes, my first wish would be that there were at least 10 episodes of Sherlock per season, not 3. My second would be that it took no more than a year for each season to be released. And my third would be that Sherlock and Watson were a gay couple (they are made for each other!! they just don't realize it!!! kay, I know I am a little weird.)

In all seriousness though, Sherlock is now my third favourite crime show on TV after Castle and Bones, and Cumberbatch's Sherlock is now one of my favourite TV characters ever. The first depiction I saw of Sherlock was by Robert Downey Jr, the second was Jeremy Brett's Sherlock (who is the most faithful to the books.) The truth is, I love all three versions. Robert Downey Jr's was quite different from the books because he was not at all asexual (kind of a man-whore, actually,) and he was a very competent fighter. Yet his character's wit, intelligence, and humour still won me over (and his bromance with Jude Law.) Jeremy Brett's Sherlock introduced me to the original version of the character and again I loved Sherlock Holmes. I was a bit upset when I started the first season and learned that it took place in modern London. After twenty minutes of the first episode, I couldn't have cared less. I was already addicted. Cumberbatch's Sherlock is AMAZING. He becomes even more "human" in the second season, forging a very touching friendship with Molly, going out of his way to save Irene, and proving just how deeply he cares for John Watson and his friends and brother.

I highly recommend this show!!!
