Storyline

The show pays homage to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic literary character, Sherlock Holmes, with bold interpretations of the iconic characters, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson. MISS SHERLOCK is set in modern-day Tokyo and both lead characters are Japanese women - Dr. Wato Tachibana (or Wato-san), a surgeon recently returned from a volunteer doctors' mission in Syria, and Sara Shelly Futaba (nicknamed Sherlock), an eccentric investigation consultant to the police department who solves bizarre and difficult cases. Throughout the series, the pair solves mystery after mystery with Miss Sherlock's extraordinary observation and reasoning skills. Written by https://mydramalist.com/26438-miss-sherlock

It's hard to get past the overwrought, soap-operatic presentation and constant overt exposition.
6 September 2018 | by connorundrummeSee all my reviews

The acting in this series is uber-cringe-worthy, even with tertiary characters that don't have lines to speak. (The panicking & screaming reaches Godzilla levels.) The main actors are incredibly exaggerated, but empty, portrayals. And being rude, with strange smiling moments, dashing about & displaying exaggerated movements doesn't totally equate to Sherlock's full complement of original characteristics. Its also frequently peppered with poorly attempted humor/levity, including baby-voiced squealing & giggles, that are neither cute nor appealing, but dumb, and repulsive. Partially, this may be a cultural interpretation, but it really cheapens the brand with it's melodramatic silliness and lack of gravitas. There is also familiar, dramatic Sherlock music playing while nothing in particular is happening. Even the 1984 UK series, "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" has done the Conan-Doyle stories and characters far more credit.

Lastly, Sherlock comes to swift initial assertions with almost no information. There is far less logical deduction than unsupported speculation along the way. Less than halfway through both episodes 1 & 2, one can predict the crime's culprits. It's weak. Any online positivity about this series should eventually dry up.
