and not a good, interesting weird either
Verified purchase
Yes, I was Sherlock groupie at one point in my life, but to be quite frank, from the last apisode of season 3 to the entirety of season 4, I have not been at all impressed with the writing and the direction they took the characters. Seriously, it got weird, and not a good, interesting weird either. Midday has always been hit or miss for me, Doctor Who has its moments, but is not consistently good, which is why I had hoped that Sherlock would see its end in this season, I imagine the calamity that season 5 will be and shudder. Love the first 2 seasons and season 3 episodes 1&2 are great, but everything after is far too strange and deviates too far from Doyle's tradition. Which blows my mind,since the guy was a genius. Stick close to the original stuff please.

AWFUL

We have loved the Sherlock series from the start. This one didn't live up to the last 3. The first episode was weird, the second was okay, the third one, I didn't want to finish. It was so off the wall and weird that it wasn't watchable. Don't waste your money

Not like the other seasons. this one is horrible!
Verified purchase
I wish I didn’t have to give it any stars. This was terrible waste of time and brainpower To watch it. My husband and I enjoyed the first three seasons immensely. The writing and storyline and banter between the characters was so clever and entertaining. This season however was just downright creepy and confusing. None of The endearing qualities of previous seasons. Also The speed of most of the acting was just annoying in previous seasons it made sense because he was supposed to be a little crazy and fast pace but this was too much. I would not recommend this season to anyone at all.

I love it....but...
Verified purchase
The last season of my beloved Sherlock was dark, disjointed and left one a bit disappointed. Very dark....so dark that it was not only disturbing, but confounding. At times, it rang true with wry humor and intelligent story, but then would wander into these perverse places in which it was hardly believable (Sherlock's sister is "running" the insane asylum in which she comes and goes from, at will; the parents are clueless that their daughter is still alive, much less supposedly locked up (?) and has created so much trauma in an already deeply dysfunctional family? Randomly somehow becomes John's therapist (??) ad nauseum in terms of improbable moments). I love the Sherlock series and a devoted fan. Moffat and Gatiss created an amazing moment in television that was clever, enlightening, entertaining, funny and thoughtful through the first three seasons. The acting was incredible, even the smaller parts with continuing characters) and we love you, but Season 4 does not leave us as completely devoted and connected to a modern-day "consulting detective" who was our favorite sociopath and his Dr. Watson. However, I will always BELIEVE in Sherlock Holmes ;-) Thank you!

Down and out
Verified purchase
Sadly, the emphasis has gone from clever mysteries to self-absorption. Not that Sherlock & Dr. Watson aren't interesting characters, but it's become all about them. Oh, and the general tone is now so over-the-top that even the suspension of disbelief doesn't help.

Where did my Sherlock go?
Verified purchase
You won't find a bigger Holmes fan than me. But this season was such a disappointment. I wanted to love it so much, but the treatment of most of the female characters, the lazy continuity errors and plot holes, and insane storyline made it one of the most heartbreakingly disappointing viewing experiences I can remember. Would not recommend

Still the best
Verified purchase
As another reviewer said, Season 4 is "designed to push the boundaries" of the ways in which we think about the characters and how we see their world. Yes, Season 4 is different and a bit dark, but for anyone who has read any of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries...that is surely to be expected at some point. There are some repetitive elements, but this is still terrific. However, you must have an open mind to continue on with this Consulting Detective.

Beyond my hopes. Tearfully joyful goodbye.
Verified purchase
I'm glad I go to say good bye to my favorite mystery character's whom presented as Sherlock during my life. This 20teen version got me immersed like the novels did from my first experience and always felt almost Conan Doyal. It's final season won't stand up as well for fans in the far furture. However nothing could have been better for those needing to enjoy the final mysteries. I may be getting used to nothing ending but I also grew up with seasons. Sherlock Season 4 handled it's place during my time here amazingly. My heartfelt joy in seeing this gem become a story for the ages.
