I decided it would be fun to start a Friday post about new things I've found throughout the week. Just someplace to highlight whatever new thing I've found, whether it be books, movies, shows, food, anything I want really. If you've found something new this week that you'd like to share, let me know in the comments! I love discovering new things!
My new thing this week is the show Sherlock. It's not new to most people since it came out last year, but we were finally lucky enough to get it in at the library. The list was long! And now I know why. The show is awesome!
Admittedly, we've only seen the first episode so far. The shows are each 90 minutes, so by the time the kids are in bed and we can get the show started, it's a bit late to get in three hours of tv time. But I can't wait to see the rest of the season!
If you are a fan of the Sherlock Holmes character, you should definitely check this series out. It's a modernized version of the Arthur Canon Doyle stories but it keeps much of the original style and feeling. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman (seriously, does anyonenotlove him?!) as Watson. They are both perfect. And it's co-created by Steven Moffat! It doesn't really get any better than that.
The second season will be released on May 22. We'll definitely be checking it out. If you've seen any of the Sherlock shows, I'd love to know what you think!
