Sherlock Holmes Masterpiece Mystery! Season 2

Sherlock returns to Masterpiece Mystery! PBS this Sunday night at 9 p.m (check your local listing), and the new season--three new episodes, hardly a season, but thrilled to have them-- are great. May 6-20, 2012, Sunday nights. PBS has taken three well known tales and updated them in a very unique way. The stories are there, but the background and delivery is so different. Love the acting-the dysfunctional duo of Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch and Dr. John Watson, Martin Freeman, battles the worst of 21st- century London, including a tech savvy arch-villain who wants to rule the world and a hound from the hinges of Hell. Don't miss Season 2. Season 3 won't start filming until 2013.

If for some reason you can't watch live or forget to set your DVR, the episodes will be available for a short time after aired on the PBS website.

Join Masterpiece Sherlock season two with a live Twitter event on Sundays, May 6, 13 & 20, 2012, during the premiere broadcasts of A Scandal in Belgravia, The Hounds of Baskerville and The Reichenbach Fall.

You're welcome whenever you're watching, but during 9-10:30 pm Eastern time, Masterpiece and PBS insiders — as well as Sherlock experts from Baker Street Blog, Baker Street Babes, and authors Lyndsay Faye (Sherlock Holmes in America) and Leslie Klinger (The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes) — will be tweeting too.

Thanks for this information! I thought I'd have to miss the Amazing Race finale because naturally I wouldn't miss Sherlock, but now I can have both!

I'll be taping this on another TV while I watch the Amazing Race finale (just like Anonymous) with my boys. This Sherlock Holmes isn't my favorite Masterpiece Mystery, but I never miss any Masterpiece Mysteries! If I did, I'd have to wait for them to come to video, because my old-ish eyeballs just can't watch TV on the computer monitor!
