The New Sherlock Special Pulls A McFly

"I say, why does that blonde Gabbing Geek podcaster continue to stare at me like I was a piece of delectable British back bacon?"
“I say, why does that blonde Gabbing Geek podcaster continue to stare at me like I was a piece of delectable British back bacon?”

The flash forward is a hotly debated tactic in geek media.  I think Battlestar Galactica pulled it off brilliantly, other wrong people whose name rhyme with Schmatson disagree.  Many shows have put their knees in tight and done the time warp to the future: Parks and Recreation, Desperate Housewives, True Blood, even Lost (sorta…kinda…not really).  But a time jump…to the past?  That’s bold.  Actually, that was just plain text.  This is bold.  And this is italics.  Ah, back to the story.

A recently revealed preview of the upcoming Sherlock special (which we’ll get before Season 4) surprised everyone by revealing its own time jump BACK to Victorian days.  Sherlock is a bit more subdued but the same characters are there (“The dog one.” will be priceless to any Holmes fans) in the preview after the break.  The BBC Sherlock series continues to deliver on impressive content–if you haven’t watched the previous three seasons (each consists of 3 episodes which are almost full movies) then you should do so immediately (check your Netflix).
