    What if Sherlock died?
  • Feb 22, 2021
    Smart, funny, and hilarious, and it never gets old.
  • Feb 22, 2021
    A melhor temporada da série de longe, casos incríveis do Escadalo em Belgravia com Irene Adler até o "suicídio de Sherlock". Temporada espetacular!
  • Dec 22, 2020
    Still a joy, but a little more uneven. A Scandal in Belgravia is just perfect, while The Hounds of Baskerville is a slog.
  • Dec 08, 2020
    This show is almost flawless and seriously under-viewed. Cumberbatch and Freeman are perfect. Moriarty is terrifying and one of the best villains of all time.
  • Oct 02, 2020
    Sherlock proves to be a fun and exhilarating TV experience.

    Irene Adler >>>>>. That's the tweet.
  • Aug 22, 2020
    Amazing season and episodes , mixed with the amazing acting of both Benedict Cumberbacth and the amazing Andrew Scott both breathtaking and enthusiastic characters with such a nice chemistry
  • Jul 02, 2020
    The series is fun to watch and entertaining. The Baskerville episode is particularly well done; however, the other episodes, though playful and enjoyable to watch, don't hold up to the sort of questioning a Sherlock Holmes fan might have.
  • Jun 03, 2020
    Even better than the first season. And the best one overall. The middle episode was something different. It was nice, but the first and third make this season so great. Moriaty is absolutely incredible, crazy and fun. Wonderful.
