Quotes

[first lines over opening credits]
[Shirley reads a message she found hidden in a family heirloom]
Voice of Sherlock Holmes: To the holder of this letter, my commendations. Solving the puzzle of the chest required more than considerable deductive powers. My work has consumed my life and I have produced no heir to follow in my path, but I picture you a young man of good imagination. Any mystery devised by mortal minds can be solved therewith. Yours faithfully, Sherlock Holmes.

Kick ass
10 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this show. I wish I had taped them. I would watch it every week, and write down what was happening in the episode. I was obsessed with it and the shows that followed. I was seven, and this was great for mysteries for me, and reading the books as well. Plus, gotta love that Bo. The way of solving was always interesting, and seeing who had done the crime. It was fun at my age to try and solve the mystery, sometimes I'm right, other times I'm wrong, and it was fun. There should really be a DVD set our for this series, or they should re-air it on YTV at nights, or on the weekends, because they don't make TV shows like they used too. I always loved the thought of being in their circle of friends. Looked like lots of fun. I love seeing the cast wherever they are, I'm say "There's Bo!" or "There's Bart!" But no one ever knew what I was talking about. All in all, awesome show!
