I haven’t been active on this blog because… I don’t really know why, I’ve been updating my Spanish one like crazy since I created both of them, but anyway. Here’s my latest obsession. BBC’s TV show “Sherlock”. First of all, I’d like to give some background info. Most of the time, I feel some sort of fascination to anything that reminds me of my childhood, for example: The Three Musketeers (saw lots of cartoons and shows about them while I was growing up). Sherlock Holmes for a reason that I can hardly remember was part of my childhood too. Then, a couple of years ago when Robert Downey Jr’s Sherlock Holmes movie was premiered, I felt that “Uhh, my childhood” fascination and felt curiosity about it and read about the original Sherlock Holmes and watched both movies with an innocent excitement. But even if I tried, I couldn’t get a hold of any of the actual novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Then, after I finished watching all the seasons of Sex And The City (my obsession before Sherlock) I had this feeling of emptiness without a show to watch. Thanks to Tumblr I found out about this show and felt curious about it, so, I watched the first episode. AMAZING. Brilliant since the beginning. Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock, in my humble opinion, is the BEST Sherlock ever. I finally got to read A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and I can tell you, at least the first episode is true to the book but in modern times, I just loved it to bits. It broke my heart that we only have 3 episodes per season and just two seasons to watch, because the show is magnificent. Even the theme song is glorious, you even feel smarter by just listening to it.

It’s a really smart show, with great characters and amazing actors, Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman as John Watson, great duo. The storyline changes in every Episode according to the case they’re working on but it’s so captivating you can barely feel that every episode lasts an hour and a half, time just flies by fast. If I ever made a good recommendation would be this one. If you haven’t seen it, DO IT. You won’t regret it, I promise.
