Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, is a recent portrayal of the classic Sherlock Holmes series. The show was super popular while it was being released from 2010-2017, and I remember several of my friends and classmates were always waiting for the next season to be released. There are so many Sherlock Holmes shows out there (and many of them are quite good actually), but this one is one of, if not the best.
I think this is a great show to binge watch since the series is finished. Also, there is a lot happening in each of the episodes, so it is easier to remember all of the details if you watch them consecutively. In total, there are 4 seasons and 13 episodes.
The episodes are super high quality and well produced, with a good mix of drama, mystery, and comedy. Each individual episode is kind of like its own movie, as they are all 90 minutes or so. Still, they are all good enough that you will wish there were more.
In case you forgot about it or have never heard of it, now is your time to catch up.
Sherlock Recommendation Rating: 4

1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
