Sherlock identifies new murders as the modus operandi of Wade Crewes, the serial killer whose arrest made Captain Thomas Gregson's NYPD career. Their friendship is strained by necessary questions of whether it's a copycat, a former accomplice, or even the real serial killer. Worse yet, what if Crewes' initial conviction rested on a trumped-up investigation, notably by Gregson's partner at the time. Written by KGF Vissers

keeping up with the precision of facts, sherlock is a high demand
16 March 2013 | by adamland1991See all my reviews

i would say, in general this series is not like the sherlock they released in BBC one, which was a masterpiece of sherlock, concerning the original line of story bringing it to modern times. the attention to details on that series was incredible and really made you think of what's to come next. it was shrouded in mystery and always keeps you in tension. this new sherlock series on the other hand, brings some new elements of its own, which in my humble opinion, is decreasing the general quality of sherlock. they made Watson into an Asian woman, which happens to be Lucy liu the very well known actress, and the star of sherlock i recognized thanks to Dexter on showtime. they decided he also lives in modern times, and was also an addict with a keane sense of deduction. thing is, making Watson a woman, and keeping only them and the general lines of the characters in tact in this series (at least up to now) is rather disappointing. there is not too much of sophisticated geniusness of hidden details in this series, as a viewer i could already guess the outcomes and the criminals along the way. and BBC's sherlock though, kept me glued to the seat with anticipation. the plot doesn't exactly take sherlock's cases in the original stories into life here. E.G the hounds of baskerville. so, besides the writers being a little stubborn about it being sherlock, i would say this is just like any other thriller series, except it carries the name sherlock and Watson with it. frankly, i don't know why. so, i would say the idea behind the series is one point down, but the other crucial glitch in this particular episode would be, the opening scene where we see the masked murderer killing the tied up couple. when he shoots the husband first, there is a blood spatter shooting towards his mask making a sort of spatter on the mask itself that actually looks like a blood spatter typical to a swift knife cut, and not splashy and "all over the place" gunshot to the head. and the most noticeable bloop ON THE FIRST SCENE of this episode is, when the camera takes a second shot of the murderer as he shoots the wife, his second victim- the blood on his mask magically disappears. GUYS, AS MUCH AS YOU CAN MAKE SHERLOCK Interesting YOU GOTTA KEEP THINGS LIKE THIS FROM HAPPENING!! i mean, sherlock is all about the attention to details and thinking outside the box called the boundaries of the human mind concerning the abilities of deduction. when things like this happen by mistake it really gets me off the show. the production should pay more attention and consider more sophisticated ideas and motives for the show, and pay attention to glitches like the blood on the mask!!!
