Saw the first Sherlock episode. Had some quibbles, but overall quite fun. Not sure if I like the added graphics. They work very nicely, but I think I dislike that kind of fussiness. As everyone has said, what a nice 21st century update to the story.
The whole do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend conversation was soooo awkward and just weird. I wish it was shorter. It was unnatural and felt like fan service.
The cabby as killer was obvious after a while, yet no one including Sherlock picked it up for too long. It was a bit annoying, frankly. Wish the whole bit at Sherlock's room didn't drag on so long.
Did Watson *really* have to kill the cabby? It seemed like gratuitous murder.
The good stuff of course has to include Sherlock doing his quick summary of how he knows what he knows, and I love how "Harry Watson" was actually John's sister.
They really did pick the perfect guy to play Sherlock, didn't they? The actor's name just makes it that much better.
"I'm in shock, I have the blanket!" (or something like that) is such an awesome line. XD;
I've heard the second episode is not nearly as awesome as 1 or 3, so I think I'll watch it tomorrow or something.
I feel like reading fanfic now....Though I suppose I should watch the other two episodes first to avoid being spoiled.
