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!!

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!!!

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.

The second season continues with explanation of the ending of Series One. The success of the whole concept depends on strong plots and Sherlock's interactions with "normals". Overall this is achieved although there are some worrying trends creeping in: Some of the plot twists are a little *too* contrived. Some of the medicine is awful (but that is nowadays a par for the course of TV or film production - why they cannot get a decent advice I don't know!). Worst of all, an unhealthy dose of sentimentality is beginning to appear.

I found the Season 2 entertaining but I hope the downward slide is arrested in Season 3.
