Storyline

Mycroft wants his brother Sherlock to investigate the murder of civil servant Andrew West and theft of the Bruce-Partington missile plans. Sherlock, however, prefers to assist Lestrade following a massive bomb blast. The sadistic bomber abducts a string of hostages, who will be released after Sherlock has solved a series of puzzles, including a twenty year old murder, an insurance scam, and the alleged forgery of a long lost painting.

Better than first one
9 March 2017 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

It seems that previous episode was just missfortunate accident, cause third one is even better than pilot. Sherlock irresistibly reminds me of Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, with his extreme intelligence and even more extreme social maladjustment combined with arrogance which is source of endless fun. Intelligent, complicated and very witty. I didn't like Moriarty too much, but Sherlock and Watson are great enough to compensate for any possible weakness of this show.

8,5/10
