Sherlock: Season Four – The Brilliant Outweighs The Awful!

The return of Sherlock after an absence of two years – not counting the one-off The Abominable Bride – set audience records then dropped off precipitously. Of its three 90-minute episodes, one was brilliant, one was much better than the average mystery/procedural and the final had great moments but also a number of obvious flaws.

If you binge all three episodes, though, it is easily apparent that Sherlock’s worst was better than most shows’ best – as the fourth season DVD set shows. Plus there’s two hours of pretty darned decent bonus material.

Marvel Studios has another winner on their hands. Doctor Strange is one of the best Marvel movies – and that’s saying something!

Trailers and online behind-the-scenes featurettes have been uniformly intriguing – showing us enough to tantalize without really spoiling anything major. Just the fact that the film’s heavy-duty cast – Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetal Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg – seemed to be having great fun was more than enough to suggest something special was going on.

Then to see it… Oh, my!
