Product Description

Product Description

Sherlock: Season Two (BBC/DVD)

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

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!

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!!

By Nat Hawthorne TOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 10 2015
Format: DVD
Like season one, the second season also has an amazing first episode. "A scandal of Belgravia" was the first episode in season two and had Lara Pulver playing the character Irene Adler. She steals every scene that she is in. This second episode featured one of the most popular Sherlock Holmes stories: "The Hounds of Baskerville". However, it had a modern take on the story, which was fine, but it lacked in execution. But, the last episode ends up the season well, which I won't reveal here. All in all, Cumberbatch brings more nuances and skills into his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in this second season.

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.

An excellent modern day interpretation of the Holmes-Watson dynamic duo. Based on some of the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories but "messaged" in a good way to bring them into this century. It's always nice seeing shots in and around London and Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman were excellent choices for this timely duo, can't wait for season 4,5 etc,.

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.

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.
