The Rebirth of Sherlock Holmes

So my friend got me and my wife into this new show called Sherlock Holmes. I know what you're thinking.

There have been a million incarnations of Sherlock. What's one more?

But this, my friends, is a very smart show hosted on the BBC. It appears on Masterpiece Mystery. Imagine, if you will, that Sherlock and Dr. Watson were modern men. What would they look like today? What would they act like? That's the basis for this show. They combine all the elements of what made the Sherlock stories great and update them, giving them a CSI quality. Also, they've saw fit to create websites that lend to the Sherlock universe such as The Blog of John Watson and The Science of Deduction.

You don't believe that a show could be that good? Well then check out the trailer below and judge for yourself.
