The second season of “Sherlock” deserves a 10 out of 10, as the first did. (These “seasons” are really just a trio of feature-length made-for-tv movies.) It has the same fantastic writing, and great acting by Benedict Cumberbatch, along with all the great nods to the original books and stories.
It even gets better, with a logically expanding story that covers the detective’s rise (and fall) as a celebrity, and his final confrontation with James Moriarity, wonderfully played by Andrew Scott. This is one of the best tv shows I’ve ever seen. It’s got all of the flair of a great literary adaptation, with the tension of a procedural thriller like “CSI” or “24.” Amazing stuff.
