Love that Watson is a woman. (Why not a non-sexual relationship between men and women?) and as the show develops from one season to the next we see the growth of both characters. Yes, Holmes admits he has flaws, we see them, we see as he sees he needs to change from his belief he is perfect.
A pretty good follow-up to Season 1. As expected, some episodes are better than the others. So if you have a time budget, choose wisely. I also think the connection to MI6, toward the end, is probably unnecessary.
CAUTION: Copy 4, last disc, final episode has been seriously scratched such that huge portions of the finale cannot be viewed!
Series features first-rate writing, acting and editing. Miller especially and Liu unexpectedly sizzle. Updating classics so often fails. Hollywood is rarely up to the challenge these days thanks especially to the Vulgarian Invasion. Not here. For the first time in recent memory, one meets characters one would actually like to know. Unfortunately, the music aside from excellent opening credits is appalling as are Liu's costumes. Her dresser is apparently about nine years old hoping to make cheerleader. Short full skirts with big-heeled ankle boots are appalling on anyone but children, who may be excused on account of their youth.
Very good series, both stars are very good in these roles. Support cast very good as well without being over the top. Great adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous characters (Holmes and Watson) Lucy Liu is cast superbly as Watson.
