Tonight at 9:00pm on PBS we return to 221B Baker Street for the second season of Sherlock, a modern day retelling of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and his faithful sidekick, Dr. John Watson. Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, describes himself as a high-functioning sociopath. The modern take on Sherlock Holmes is refreshing and extremely engaging and you can’t help find Martin Freeman’s Dr. Watson endearing or being drawn to the insanity that is Sherlock. If you have yet to watch the first season make sure to check it out!
The second season will cover the modernized versions of A Scandal in Bohemia, The Hounds of Baskerville, and The Final Problem. What does this mean? While you wait each week in between episodes I suggest reading the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. You can also download all of Sherlock Holme’s literary adventures for free for your e-reader via Project Gutenberg!
