Sherlock A Scandal in Belgravia
This post has nothing to do with Robert Downey Jr. but does contain spoilers. Spoilers.
A Scandal in Belgravia picks up immediately where the first series left off, with the pure nutcase of Jim Moriarty. That last scene is resolved through the act of this episode's (or film's, as it were) feature character- Irene Adler. Lara Pulver looks better here than she did last seen in Spooks and not just because we see... ah hem... a lot of her.
The first half of the show is loosely based on A Scandal in Bohemia and then redirects into an original story with Irene Adler... The Woman. Involving Moriarty, even. And a lot of Mycroft. The style is ratcheted up a little bit more with some very creative camera and editing. I adored this show. I can't wait to see more.
