News & Interviews for Sherlock: Season 4
Once fleet, wry and cheerfully eccentric, it has become bombastic and bloated.
In "Bad Boys" Joe Pantoliano's Captain Howard says "Just do what you do; only faster." That's the exact pep talk that you imagine Gatiss and Moffatt having with Cumberbatch and Freeman as they return to Baker Street for the 4th series of "Sherlock."
Sherlock continues to leave its mark not only on television, but on the legacy of Sherlock Holmes.
For every flaw that exists this season, there is a moment of genius. The problem is that the flaws are of the same magnitude. Even at it's worst Sherlock is still better than most shows at its best.
