Like a bajillion other people, I’ve been waiting for two years for BBC’s Sherlock to return to television. Scheduling conflicts for leads Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes) and Martin Freeman (John Watson), as well as a little side commitment for producer and writer Steven Moffat, pushed back production for a seeming eternity. To say I was excited as the air date approached would be an understatement. Not “wedding-day” excited, but not too far a step back from there. I’m not obsessed—I don’t write fan fiction or anything—but I have had some pretty intense conversations about how Sherlock survived.
Picking up where we left off last week, I am continuing my run through the best that TV had to offer this past year. This week I am listing off spots ten through three from my top ten list. I tried to write out what made each of these shows special and worthwhile, though none of them got the space for consideration and praise that they truly deserve. That being said, I realized before I even wrote this that the two shows that top my list will need a ton of space just to get all my thoughts about them into coherent order. So they will get their own posts in a few days. Until then, enjoy this section and take a guess as to what my top two are.
