True To The Graphic Novels
27 March 2021 | by tmorsenSee all my reviews

As mentioned in another comment, this series is based on a graphic novel and as such if you go into watching this expecting a straight up, familiar Sherlock Holmes story or even go into watching it hoping it'll be a new Supernatural of sorts, then yes, you will be disappointed. However with that said, since I did enjoy reading through those graphic novels as a teen prior to this show being made, I did enjoy it very much. Is it perfect? Of course not. But nothing is ever necessarily perfect for everybody. Could the music be better? Absolutely, though I also found it to help kind of redefine the life of the older and infused it with the new. No TV series or movies based on any literature are going to be 100% of what you hoped for after reading them. But this was a pretty good start. It's worth the chance as long as you give it a fair one and leave your expectations for preconceived notions about what you think it'll be at the door. Simply enjoy the experience.
