In my opinion, Benedict plays a better Holmes than anyone else I've seen... of course, that may be due to the fact that Benedict and Martin and Andrew are all just really amazing... Ben and Martin are good at reacting to each other the way they would normally.. plus, Cumberbatch is a really fun word to say. -SH
Those were the two weakest episodes. But if you consider those ludicrous, what word would you use to describe those Guy Ritchie movies. He is raping Sherlock harder than George Lucas raped Indiana Jones in the "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" movie (yes, South Park reference for the nerds here). The BBC just tried a modern day adaption, by putting Sherlock in the modern day era. Which is an interesting take. And it more or less works. In the novels Sherlock was heavy on opium. So he was a bit stranger, than in the old tv-movies.
Also stranger doesn't mean "high functioning sociopath" (rolleyes). I just don't think the BBC and Cumberbatch have a very good handle on Holmes's character. It's a standard darker and grimmer update, that's all the rage these days and comes across as silly and too try hard modern. It's the same with Jim Moriarty and Mycroft Holmes.
