Nice review of 'A Scandal in Belgravia'.
For a different look at this episode, check out my review .
Indeed, the similarity to Remington Steele is what kept me watching past the pilot. I watched initially to see what my Firefly guy Nathan Fillion was up to, and the pilot was okay…but let me just say, Kate Beckett is no Laura Holt! Nathan Fillion, with his charm and utter watchabilty…
Have you seen Upstairs, Downstairs? It has some of the original cast members, and the story world has progressed about the same amount of time as the real world has since the show was last on. It, like DA, is awesome.
I know what you mean about this new Sherlock! Like you, I am having my dear allegiance to the brilliance of Jeremy Brett's Holmes challenged. And Martin Freeman's Watson, with his humor and compassion, is unequalled in the realm of Watsons.
And yes, the Brits are absolutely fabulous at drama. Have not seen Land Girls, but will check it out. Thanks for the tip.
Years ago, I was flipping channels one day, and came across a BBC show called "Love Hurts." As it turns out, I happened upon the pilot episode. I addictively watched the entire series! And have you ever seen the Miss Marples from the eighties with Joan Hickson? Ooh-la-la!
Thanks for checking in and dishing about British drama!
I love to watch, too, and Castle is one of my favorites. I hadn't thought of the thematic similarity to Remington Steele until you mentioned it, but it makes sense.
And yes, the Brits do drama like no one else. I adore Downton Abbey. So glad there will be a Season 3.
The new Sherlock is totally different from all others gone before. He's challenging my preference for Jeremy Brett. This Irene Adler is a powerful gal! Have you been watching "Land Girls"? The Brits do drama like nobody else!
