Sherlock Season 2 Finale & Anticipation of Season 3

Part of the joy of watching TV on DVD is that when the season finale cliff hanger is over, there's a good chance you can watch the next season's premier without having to wait all summer long.

And with very short seasons (3 episodes each), it might drive me crazy to have to wait for Sherlock Season 3 under normal circumstances. But this BBC series is not "normal circumstances."

It sounds like there's a plan in place for the season 3 episodes (and their source material), but recent news from Entertainment Weekly present a disappointing picture. It sounds like at the earliest Sherlock Season 3 will be on the BBC in Fall 2013, which means PBS won't pick it up until 2014.

That said...if you need some fun winter TV viewing, can I recommend the two fantastic series of Sherlock. 3 Episodes each season, 90 minutes each episode...so nine hours of entertaining and stimulating joy.

If you haven't watched it, buy Season 1 and Season 2 (or give it as a gift). Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are waiting for you. And then they will make you wait until 2014 with me for Season 3.

I fully concur. This series is absolutely fabulous and I am on pins and needles with great anticipation for Season 3 (bummed to hear that it's a year later than I'd hoped). I loved the ending from Season 2 and while I generally think I understand "how he did it", I'm still excited to hear his explanation and I'm definitely intrigued to see where they take the series next.
