26 Reasons Sherlock Is The Best TV Show Ever

  • 0
If for some reason you have not been fortunate or wise enough to have watched the BBC’s “Sherlock” series, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, welcome to the turning point. I have given the DVD sets as gifts for several occasions, and now I give them to you. The show is genius, to put it simply. Created by “Dr. Who” writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss (who plays the insufferable Mycroft in the actual show), it, like Sherlock himself, just can’t be beaten. Not by Guy Ritchie’s films. Not by “Elementary.” Not even by Freeman and Cumberbatch as Bilbo and Smaug. If you need some convincing about whether or not these very long episodes are worth watching, I have taken the time out of my day to compile some of my favorite scene and blurbs from the show. It’s because I believe in Sherlock Holmes, and I think you will, too.

1. This scene, in which Sherlock hasn’t had a case in a while.

2. This scene, where Sherlock gets escorted to Buckingham Palace and refuses to put on clothes.

3. This is how the BBC’s Sherlock thinks. I dare you not to find this captivating/extremely cool/sexy.

4. Sherlock meets a look alike and John gives him this hysterical look.

5. Everyone thinks John and Sherlock are a couple.

6. Sherlock knows how to hush up Lestrade.

7. But somehow never remembers his first name.

8. Sherlock makes this face when he convinces John he can’t switch off a bomb.

9. Sherlock doesn’t know how to make coffee.

10. Sherlock’s not a psychopath…

11. And he really hates Anderson.

12. Really, he puts Sherlock off.

19. How can you resist Martin Freeman and his many faces? You can’t.

20. John Watson’s blog is real.

21. But he doesn’t shave for Sherlock Holmes (after all, they’re not a couple).

22. Sherlock actually doesn’t know everything. For example, he has deleted the solar system from his memory.

23. Moriarty is TERRIFYING.

24. Again, very serious show.

25. If you start now, you can watch all three seasons without waiting 2 years in between like everyone else had to.

26. And for good measure, Sherlock also does happen to look like this.
