We thought it was a hoot!
13 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No, it is not traditional Holmes, but for our family, it was clean, fast-paced and funny ... well worth watching repeatedly!

If you just don't take yourselves and Sherlock too seriously, it's a hoot! Yes, the scene at the beginning was a bit hokey, but his demeanor in performing the initial discoveries upon awakening was hilarious.

We loved the twists ... thought his ineptitude juxtaposed with his genius was fantastic ... and we loved the sling-shot effect his revised conclusions had on us.

I particularly loved his dealing with technology ... his responses to American 20th century slang ... his misdirections as a result of the new "wonders" he had yet to learn ... and yeah, Big Willy ... heh, heh, heh.

And then there was Zapper ... ah, he was absolutely the best ... what growth potential there was for that character!

Dr. Winslow was a perfect foil ... not just a hanging on the coat tails side-kick ... I liked her.

We also had the impression that Mrs. Hudson's character was going to be more present if this had gone into series, and that would have been fun.

I wish we could find it in distribution as a CD so we could watch it more often ... the tape I made from the original TV airing is almost completely worn out.

So, lighten up and I'm certain you'll love it, too ... if you can ever find it.

Please, if any of you find it you'll let me know about it, eh?;-)

Yeah ... I liked Moriarity from 'Young Sherlock' being Sherlock here .... that was kewl.
