I just watched “A Scandal in Belgravia,” the first episode of the new season, and I can’t say that I disagree with Paste reviewer Shane Ryan—too much. I’m finding that most of my “favorite shows on television” these days are coming from the BBC—Doctor Who, The IT Crowd, Sherlock, Torchwood. I have also recently discovered Merlin and am (slowly) working my way through the episodes on Netflix.
I was a little skeptical of a modern retelling of the Sherlock Holmes canon, but I have to say I was more than impressed by the three (?!) episodes of season one, and I was immediately hooked.
