Sherlock's almost here!

Sherlock starts THIS WEEKEND on Masterpiece Mystery, people. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! The first episode is entitled A Study in Pink. As if I wasn't already crazy for this show to start, here's a bit about the story:
The Baker Street sleuth stalks again in Sherlock, a thrilling contemporary version of the Victorian-era whodunits based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. In A Study in Pink, Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman, The Office UK) has returned from Afghanistan to a quiet life. That is, until he meets the eccentric Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch,The Last Enemy) and encounters a case of apparent serial suicides. (One episode; 90 minutes; TV-PG).
Can. Not. WAIT! I am going to do my utmost best to review these episodes in a timely fashion here on the blog, I do hope those of you who are watching too will join in the discussion!

Comcast On Demand is going to save my life. My PBS station is two weeks behind the current schedule, but Wallander has been showing up on Comcast according to the nationwide schedule, thank goodness! It's bad enough that Sherlock has already aired in the UK (and I've been very, very good about avoiding spoilers for once!), a two week wait would seriously test the limits of my sanity. LOL!

@Ruth - Your PBS station is TWO WEEKS behind?! That is tragic craziness! So I'm confused...is your Comcast showing the Masterpiece programs On Demand? If all else fails, the programs will go up on the PBS website on Monday. But I dearly hope your station is on time so we can discuss!

I'm really excited to watch it tonight- I don't have cable so I am very thankful that the PBS website airs the episodes! What did you think of it?
