SHERLOCK: The Great Game
Why I Saw It: The first episode in the series was great, so I continued with the second, then the third even still. If you don’t understand why I’m reviewing episodes of a series, please refer to either the article on the entire series itself, or to the review I did for the first episode of the series.
Memorable Performances: The performance by Andrew Scott as Jim Moriarty was incredible, to the degree that I can’t believe this is the first I’m hearing about it.
The Regrettable Aspects: The sheer number of cases Sherlock had to solve in this episode might’ve been a bit much, though it made sense, given the plot.
Would I watch it again? There’s a good chance I’ll watch it before 2013 is over, I’ll watch all six episodes again. If I skip any episodes as I go through, this won’t be one of them.
To Whom Would I Recommend It? Everyone who likes a great mystery, and I’ll recommend it more strongly to anyone who was underwhelmed by the second episode in the series.
