I was in love with Sherlock Holmes when I first read the books as a kid! I've always enjoyed watching the tv/movie renditions, but I think this new BBC one keeps true to the spirit of the character the way some of the others fail to.

Oh, and those real blogs are great!

Do you guys know any older films??
These 1930's films were not bad and I watched the growing up:

Basil Rathbone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

However, Rathbone did play the character very close to forum, but I believe Cumberbatch is better.

I can never find any Sherlock Holmes with Rathbone that are closed captioned. Do you know of any?

Good point, this is from open subtitles:


Subtitles Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror - subtitles english 1CD srt (eng)

Best bet would be to buy a DVD.

what is annoying is the fact not all DVDs are CC or subtitled. I have several Rathbone as Sherlock DVDs none are subtitled or CC. Even old Tarzan with Johnny W. DVDs are not CC. I really enjoy old movies. Very dissappointing that there are still so few subtitles. Like I have a total addiction to sci-fi/horror movies of the 50's. Only the most famous get captioned.

I agree that it's disgraceful that in the process of putting old films onto DVD, that they can't be bothered to CC/subtitle them. I cannot believe it's not illegal under some disability discrimination law. Nevermind the fact that old films are more likely to be watched by older people, who are more likely to have hearing loss, and in turn who would appreciate seeing subtitles. I refuse to buy DVDs now if they aren't subtitled.

Dude, not saying you are wrong, but look into an updated copy.

only "The Hounds of Baskersville" and "Pusuit to Algiers" are cc /subtitles. that is 2 out of 14. It would be nice if there was the complete collection,
(like this one) (like this one)
were availible with cc/subtitles.

well two is better than zero

If you have a non-subtitled DVD, try to run it with Video Lan on a computer. I think you can use an open subtitle file against it, if one exists for those dvds. I'm pretty sure that would solve the problem like it does in Boxee.

My friends love the show Elementary. I'll admit the chemistry between the characters is very good and I like both the actors. But, for the record, Sherlock Holmes was not a fawking slob!!

I agree with what is being said on other forums Elementary, while good, is really just a better form of CSI.

The BBC series still rules, in my opinion.

Yeah, I regard Elementary as just another detective/crime show. Not really a Sherlock Holmes show.

The BBC Sherlock is awesome, I agree.

The Sherlock Holmes is the best. I want to read or watch anything about Sherlock Holmes.

I liked the BBC one and wish it was little longer. I hope they make another while I fix my Sherlock on Elementary.

For Elementary, I missed first ones and have to wait for reruns. I was surprised that Lui was casted as Joan Watson. I never image the watson as a female until now. It is interesting and different twist in some way. The casts grew on me as the show goes on.
