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.
