Turn up the volume
21 May 2017 | by kshirley-77960See all my reviews

I do love anything Sherlock Holmes. I like Lucy and Johnny and the rest of the cast is pretty good. I just wish I could hear Johnny. I struggle to hear him every week. I'm not sure if he speaks too softly, too deeply, or what. I just know that I cannot hear him and him alone.

I thought maybe it was just me, but no, my friends say the same thing. Why or Why can't the producers correct this horrible insult to our ears? My television set can only go so high on volume and I am always at the max when this show is on.

My friend in Texas suggested that I do what she does, add the closed captioning and read what Johnny is saying.

This will be my last season of trying to hear what is being said.
