Henchman Ranks All the Sherlock Episodes

The hit BBC show Sherlock ended it’s four-series run this past weekend, and I’m happy to say I was a fan right through the end. This show had a shockingly good debut all the way back in 2010 and, like everybody else, I waited patiently over the years for each new exciting installment. It made superstars out of lead actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, it spawned two American clones, and it’s probably defined the character for the new century.

Sherlock was a pretty good show.

It’s a good hat

Sherlock was far from perfect, though. By seasons three and four, I think it was struggling under the weight of its own dazzling debut. The creative people involved were more weathered and deep in the business by the end, and I think they were unable to re-capture the magic of the first two seasons. But I don’t fault Sherlock. It’s still a grand achievement and a delight to watch again and again.

And since there’s a solidly finite number of episodes, I’ve decided to rank them from worst to best! In my own opinion, of course. Your thoughts may vary, and I’d love to see your own list in the comments!

Join me after the jump as I rank all 13 episodes of Sherlock!

The Hobbit Finale Comes Out This Week!

Martin Freeman is kind of awesome.

So I’m definitely excited for The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies – or as I like to call it, The The: The The of The The Thes. The Hobbit movies haven’t been as good as The Lord of the Rings masterpieces, but I’ve enjoyed the ride so far.  I just gotta find a three hour block to fit it in.
