It's a shame that Season 2 of this wonderful BBC production, released to DVD in May of 2012 is still not available. Come on BB, a 10 month lag is inexcusable. Update: It's now September of 2013 & it is still not available.
This award-winning BBC rendition is absolutely phenomenal. Actor Benedict Cumberbatch portrays the best characterization of Sherlock Holmes ever; even better than the 1930s version played by Basil Rathbone, in my humble opinion (which will upset a lot of old-timers). Sherlock is a fresh, brave, bold, and colourful take on a great crime story. The special effects, cinematography and colouring is simply amazing in High Definition (HD) on the new iPad 3rd Generation!
