I have to take a moment and gush about Sherlock, the British mini-series. Netflix just got the second season episodes so I took a moment and got caught up.
The first episode was an easy favorite, but all the whole two seasons are impressive. S2E1 though had action, romance and twists galore. Had me hanging all the way to the last moment of the last scene. It gets the focus right, just like how Mass Effect forgets – sure it’s cool to unravel a mystery, but it’s the people, the motivations that make us care and in the end that’s the real story. The setting can be delicious fluff, but in the end we want to know and taste a bit more of Sherlock’s head, not the minutiae of the crimes.
