Don't forget to link up your own posts throughout the week as well! I will mention a favorite or two in the weekly post next week.
The INSTAGRAM SCAVENGER HUNT is switching prompts this week, moving to Hounds/Dogs, in honor of our weekly read! Be sure to share your pics and tag #ReadSherlock.
Now, let's move into the discussions . . . This week's selection is THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. It seems to me that this is one of the most well-known stories featuring Sherlock Holmes, though it was the third novel written by Doyle. Maybe it is because of the supernatural element. Maybe it is because it was the return of Holmes. Either way, it is a popular one and I have yet to read it. I will look forward to reading it this week and discovering the greatness myself for the first time!
Last week, I spoke about the first and second season of BBC's Sherlock, and this week we move into BBC's SHERLOCK SEASON THREE! After the cliffhanger ending of Season Two, this was a season that I was highly anticipating to find out what happened next, and the season did not disappoint. There were only three episodes within this season, and the first has to be one of my all-time favorites. It explores a number of fun ideas explaining that crazy cliffhanger, incorporating the social media of our time, and lots of humor. It them moved into a fun episode highlighting a strong female character (which I could talk hours about!). But, it was the end of the season finale that left you sitting with your mouth agape, wondering what just happened. I cannot wait to see what is coming in the fourth season, scheduled to air in the new year.
In addition to the third season this week, I also listed the BBC's SPECIAL: THE ABOMINABLE BRIDE. This episode appeared at the beginning of this year, as a one episode special set in Victorian times. I really wondered how they were going to pull this episode off, and was pleasantly surprised to see them successfully pull it off via flashbacks experienced by Sherlock himself. I look forward to hopefully viewing this episode again this week, and appreciating it even more the second time around.
With that, I leave you with the trailer of the upcoming BBC's SEASON FOUR. It looks intense, just from Sherlock's physical appearance alone! I cannot wait!
Who's excited with me for this one to premiere?!? And, what else do you have to add about Sherlock this week?
