Sherlock: I’m tuning out

Aaaack! What a waste of time watching Sherlock (with Benedict Cumberbatch and company) last night on PBS! I might have known they would dredge up Moriarty from the grave. Sorry, but that plot is stale. It’s a cop-out. When writers resort to it these days, it’s a sure sign of mental fatigue and lack of imagination. Then again, maybe we’ll learn that Moriarty really isn’t back . . . but at this point, I don’t care anymore. I’m not tuning in to any more episodes of that series. I don’t need the mind games, and I certainly don’t want to see any more Moriarty vs. Holmes plots. Ugh!

And what would Sir Arthur Conan Doyle think of his character murdering someone in cold blood, as Sherlock did — unless it was a dream! — in Episode 3 last night? Shame on the writers for perverting the beloved Sherlock character, and for allowing the justice system to let him get away with murder. No one is above the law, not even Sherlock Holmes.

Clear recycling bin . . . gone!

P.S. The PBS affiliate I watch also airs the old Sherlock Holmes series starring Jeremy Brett. It is far more faithful to the original character. It’s on in the wee hours of the morn, so I tape it.

 

One thought on “Sherlock: I’m tuning out

  1. The only bright spot in TV viewing last night was Downton Abbey. Super Bowl was a bust and Sherlock Holmes is just too flaky. Just can’t get into the character when all these fantastic things happen.
