'Sherlock' lives! Biggest surprises from the premiere
Mon Jan 20, 2014
I like this shows mucho, but am growing weary of the ridiculous multiple plot twists that are totally unrealistic AND distract from much more important plot factors such as Watson's working through the realization that Holmes basically screwed him over by not revealing he was still alive although ot …
