Sherlock 4.03 “The Final Problem” Top 5

The final episode of season four of Sherlock took us on an emotional tour de force, leaving this viewer mentally exhausted yet satisfied.  So often we find ourselves able to predict the outcome of a plot, or have absolute certainty that all of the characters will survive. As “The Final Problem” unfolded, I had genuine concern for each character’s well-being. Admittedly, even my rock-solid confidence that Sherlock and Watson were safe was also shaken. While this episode was rich and fulfilling, the greatest mystery now is will we get a…

The Mind and Moriarty

The Mind and Moriarty

  For Sherlock fans, this can be declared a golden age. From Robert Downey Jr.’s successful movies to Benedict Cumberbatch’s revered turn on the BBC, the consulting detective is seeing an unmatched level of popularity. Comparisons can indeed be made to when he was resurrected by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle due to public outcry after Holmes’ death in The Final Problem. Doyle was inundated by letters from fans begging for Sherlock to return to Baker Street. There are tales that it was not uncommon to see a young man wearing…
