So. Sherlock season four started off with a bang, didn't it?

It's kind of a mess. And it really only justifies the impending narrative for the rest of season four - in which John will push Sherlock away as Sherlock awkwardly tries to help him recover - if you ultimately think their relationship is worth salvaging.

Sherlock has become so clever-clever, it's stupid.

Audience Reviews for Sherlock: Season 4


The momentum was lost and the screenwriter seemed to have lost track of what captivated the viewers in the first place. The episodes are all over the place with no clear connections, it was an understandable disappointment.
