This show really captures the spirit of the original stories. Can't wait to find out how the cliffhanger is resolved!

I'd really appreciate a blu-ray of these, because I thought these were tense, riveting shows that I can't wait to watch again!

I thought the acting was great. Cumberbatch and Freeman really carry the show. (Blu-Ray)

I've been a Sherlock Holmes fan for a long time, and I appreciate all the easter egg references to the original stories the writers have put in.

Blu-ray, please.

I watch a lot of shows on BBC America, but somehow, this one escaped me. So, I'd really love to check it out on DVD! And, I'd like to spend some time with Bilbo, before he's Bilbo. I hope, even though I haven't seen Sherlock (YET!), I am still eligible to win!!

I saw this show back in July and was so bummed out that it only had three episodes. It was so much more creative and entertaining than the Robert Downey, Jr movie was.

At the time, there was some talk of a mysterious unaired pilot that was supposed to be added to the DVD release. That doesn't seem to be the case based on the DVD description.

Thanks to a previous poster for the heads-up on the Jekyll series. I've added it to my NetFlix queue.

I'd prefer the Blu-Ray if I'm lucky enough to be chosen.

I didn't think I could love Martin Freeman more than I did after The Office, but then Sherlock came along...

I loved Sherlock because even updated for the 21st century, the actors still has the essence of the classic characters. DVD please!
