Sherlock

The immortal detective. Practically for centuries now, the tale of Sherlock Holmes have enchanted and intrigued many. Generations upon generations have fallen in love with the genius sleuth, as well as his comical companion, Dr. Watson. It also helps that the stories, as well as the characters, have been adapted time and time again. But in this day and age, none did quite as impactful as BBC One's "Sherlock." Benedict Cumberbatch, with his brooding demeanor and mysterious appeal, fit the role down to a tee. It's no wonder this was the program that catapulted his name to even greater fame outside of the UK.

It's an intimate yet funny peek into the life of a single woman living in London and the complexities she faces on a day-to-day basis. Furthermore, Waller-Bridge structured the show in a way to make you feel part of the fun, often breaking the fourth wall and chatting with you, the viewer.
