News & Interviews for Sherlock: Season 4
It's a jolly enough episode, but not as thrillingly stylish as some past adventures.
Not many shows can handle such swift and complete shifts in tone as this, but Sherlock makes them look positively elementary.
How great to see Jones let rip after so many down-at-heel roles; even his toothy leer, which reminded me of Alec Guinness's in The Ladykillers, felt award-worthy.
Sherlock selects plot elements and incidental details from the original stories and mixes and mashes them together, adding new ingredients to taste.
They've abandoned the mystery format that makes Holmes such a fun character to be around. In an almost literal sense, they've lost the plot.
Frankly, it's just a shame the BBC only bothered to make the finale worth watching, rather than the whole series.
The stories were plodding, melodramatic garbage and the episodes weren't even well made.
If this is the end, then it leaves the people who loved the show for its celebration of difference with a troubling message: that difference makes you a hero if you're a white man, and an aberration if you're anyone else.
It seems typically Moffatian that we finally learned more about Mary's intriguing backstory just before we lost her, but the mystery surrounding her work with AGRA proved to be a compelling framework for the episode.
Instead of truly reckoning with those emotional crises, the Sherlock season four finale is riddled with improbable showiness, melodramatic conclusions, and logic-defying puzzling turning points.
The show makes something of a thesis statement. It would've been interesting for Sherlock to explore this idea more, or to do something with its modern setting other than show what Sherlock Holmes looked like solving mysteries in it.
Audience Reviews for Sherlock: Season 4
Apr 02, 2021This show was witty and never dull, but it just tried too hard to be over the top. Sharks jumping sharks.
Mar 23, 2021Only the last episode is bad , but the problem is, that the last episode is very bad.
Feb 27, 2021What can I say about this season? It's such a waste of the fantastic cast. COME ON, you've got Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and John Watson, they deserve a more logical, less self-indulgent story, so do us, the viewers. Series 4 cannot make sense on its own, and IT MADE THE PREVIOUS SERIES LIKE A JOKE. It is a disaster and has also ruined the beauty of S3 and TAB. Shame on the writers.
Feb 22, 2021It doesn't look good at all, and the finale itself didn't look good too as well.
Feb 22, 2021Pior temporada de longe, decidiram inventar um personagem que não existe nem nos livros nem em outra adaptação do Sherlock Holmes que é uma "irmã secreta" do Sherlock e como colocaram ela na série foi muito forçada. Os escritores estavam mesmo sem ideia.
Feb 14, 2021Yet another forced attempt at making another show into a feminist propaganda piece! I respect equality wholeheartedly but this kind of forced ideology drives people away from welcoming equality with open arms. Human nature is to accept and respect voluntarily and with a choice. Forcing one to live in a very specific agenda as the fourth wave feminist do is shallow and empty. You win people with dialogue not force.
Feb 03, 2021Really, just not Sherlock. More like a John le Carrier spy novel.
Jan 12, 2021Despite some criticism, I still really enjoyed this season
Jan 10, 2021I want to assume that no fourth season has been made. A story that is no longer interesting and Sherlock Holmes that can no longer surprise us. This bad season that ruin what I had in mind about the new Sherlock Holmes. I guess it do not exist.
Dec 22, 2020The stories and writing just aren't as strong in this season.
