Nostalgiac fondness
15 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this as a kid, hitting upon it completely by accident and watching it all the way through. I was an avid Holmes reader at the time and anything of that ilk caught my eye. I only remember it through the haze of the past, however I remember enjoying thoroughly and, like other reviewers, hoping for the series which never materialized. I would like to see it again to see if it was actually good or just some nonsense that appealed to me at the time. Larry Hagman is always very funny, I've never thought him good in dramas, and I found the romantic chemistry between Holmes and Watson to be good. I would love to see it again.
