Late to the party as usual, but just watched both seasons since Saturday, as well as all the commentaries and extras. Obviously, I quite enjoy it.

I loved A Scandal in Belgravia the best (although it took me a bit of time to wrap my head around the resolution), closely followed by both of the third episodes. And it does make me really want to go back and (re)read all the ACD stories.

But it's a lot of fun, with great relationships between the characters. I'm hooked, and disappointed about having to wait until October for the next ones.

As for the ending, Molly must be important. Or was her role just calling Watson to get him out of the way by sending him back to the apartment? The idea about the masks is interesting, given the girls' response to him.

I read a theory how Sherlock may have survived and had to recheck the last episode for that mentioned hidden clue, and that might be it.
Spoiler for
Sherlock jumped off the building onto a garbage truck, and a body that was supplied by Molly, was dropped off to replace him. the truck can be seen driving off just as Watson is being hit by that bike rider.

The three episodes of Season 3 are slated to air (in the UK) on 1, 5, & 12 Jan.

Oh, and here's the Christmas special (a ~7-minute season-3 prequel):

Oooh, that's exciting. Can't wait for the new season.

"Fun" story. Because I had seen Sherlock, I put the Complete Sherlock Holmes stories on my Christmas list, and received that. But because I had that on my list, my mom thought I might also enjoy Sherlock, and also got me the first two seasons on DVD.

Sherlock season 3 already in the Sky+ planner. Very, very much looking forward to it. Stalked out a few of the locations they shot the new season when in London but missed filming by a couple of days.
Statler: Well, how do you like the film?
Waldorf: I've seen detergents leave a better film than this.

Anyone watched season three yet?
Spoiler
I'm pretty disappointed. It all feels more like an epilogue than a new series. Though I'm sure someone will tell me that's the point.

Thought the first episode was poor, the main plot an afterthought. The second was clever, but dragged at times. They seem to think they're making a soap opera rather than a crime show.

Well I wasn't expecting that.
Spoiler
We're in serious danger of jumping the shark here. Right now Sherlock:

- can come back from the dead
- is above the law
- is never in any danger because he's always thought of everything in advance

Who's going to challenge him, Loki? Lex Luthor?

And at one point in the last episode I seriously thought Watson was going to wake up and we found out this was all a dream he'd had while recovering from the bang on the head he got at the end of series 2. Not a fan. Let's hope series 4 will be better.

I was also disappointed with this series. It's become more about the characters than the plots, which mean we have huge gaps of nothing actually happening. The best episodes were about how Sherlock had to figure out the mystery (and thus ourselves too), and then explain how he did it, whilst this did happen (in ep. 2 mainly), a lot of other stuff just happened, with little actual input from Sherlock whatsoever. I also thought Watson had very little to do this season.

Weakest season, IMO. 2 > 3 >>> 1. Didn't like 3's unreliable narrator.

But I read that they are re-airing it on 1/10/16.

Ya know... if you are not into streaming it.
