A Second Chance For Sherlock: How Editing Saved the Day

So, watching the fourth season of Sherlock got me like, “meh”. The story was lacking in the first two episodes, and the villains just weren’t that compelling. Nothing so far has compared to Andrew Scott’s Moriarty.

That being said, this video renewed my interest to rewatch the fourth season. Nerdwriter, the maker of the video, reminded me of one of the big reasons this show stands out above the rest: it’s brilliant, offbeat editing. Using a scene from the second episode of the latest season, it got me excited to watch Sherlock again and appreciate it’s uniquely creative style, even if the story wasn’t up to my (randomly) high standards.

Maybe it’ll have that effect on you too. Only one way to know.
