The Granada Series 

I won't rate each one individually because to me they are all good. There are none that I would rate anything other than 4 stars

The Eligible Bachelor

The twists in some of these, no matter how well I come to know Holmes, never cease to surprise me

The Creeping Man

Quite a disturbing tale if you really stop and think about it, but I am afraid I could really see it happening

The Master Blackmailer

I liked this one especially the very end

The Last Vampyre

I may very well be the one of the few people who really likes this one. Though I can't see how they got all of this 2 hour one from that short story.

The Illustrious Client

It only shows just how far lies can get someone.

Shoscombe Old Place

I didn't quite get the part about Jasper..........he did go after the carriage, I have had dogs and that made no sense to me. Shoscombe Prince was simply stunning to look at

The Boscombe Valley Mystery

I have seen other versions of this with Peter Cushing. Difficult to say what I like best

The Problem Of Thor Bridge

Sometimes Doyles tales are very sinister in nature

Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax

Lovely setting, beautiful lake scenery, perfectly depressing story

Wisteria Lodge

Well the Granada series surely toned this one down to a palatable taste. Aside from some parts I liked this one

Silver Blaze

What little experience I have with horses helped me to appreciate this one more that I might have otherwise. 

The Devil's Foot

I loved the setting of this and the bit of twist I had not really expected. I always love it when Holmes goes off on another subject as well as the obvious

The Greek Interpreter

I finally met Mycroft and I must say I like him. Man much of the same qualities I daresay I possess

The Copper Beeches

I liked this one. The ending was not quite how I imagined it

A Scandal In Bohemia

This is what I fell in love with and the shimmer of the candlelight still enchants me

The Dancing Men

This one had me till the end

The Naval Treaty

I never saw that end coming

The Solitary Cyclist

Not one of my favorites but still enjoyable

The Crooked Man

I really rather liked this one quite a bit

The Speckled Band

I love it when I am prompted to go back to the book where something is referenced and find it and hunt down the explanation

The Norwood Builder

How can you not love secret rooms

The Resident Patient

I liked the deception to Trevelyan though I thought it could have been fleshed out a bit more. All the characters could have been

The Blue Carbuncle

In this rare instance I like the book version better

The Six Napoleons

Subtitles would have been  helpful but aside from that I liked this one

The Man With The Twisted Lip

I enjoyed this one and it got me to thinking what kind of trouble someone could get into doing that

The Abbey Grange

One of my favorites

Hound Of The Baskervilles

As close as there is, at least till now, to the original.  A most definite watch

The Dying Detective

Excellent on both Brett and Hardwicke's acting here, I really had thought Holmes had come down with it for a while

The Golden Pince-Nez

Always have a hard time pronouncing this one, but I do love it

The Red Circle

They had me going until they told me she was in that room

The Mazarin Stone

Combining two stories into one can sometimes go very wrong but that is not the case here.  Even without my beloved Jeremy in most of it, I still really really liked this one.

The Cardboard Box

It breaks my heart it had to end, but it ended very well.  Rest In Peace my beloved Jeremy, thank you for the most excellent Holmes I have ever seen.  

The Red-Headed League

I like the acting here, top notch but I just don't like the story itself.  Never have

The Final Problem

It deviates only slightly away from the story.  I think a few of the details should have been left

The Empty House

Here I liked the novel better, but obviously Granada showed more emotion

The Priory School

I have to give this one to the novel, lots of details were changed

The Second Stain

I am glad the series omitted that tacky scene with Lady Hilda.  I wish they had not left out the bee keeping detail though

The Musgrave Ritual

I really like the way Watson was much more a part of this than in the novel

The Bruce Partington Plans

Hmmm to me it is a tie, the Granada or the story.  Both have some lines that I love

Sign Of The Four

Liked the book far more than any of the screen adaptations I have seen.

The Three Gables

Here was where I fell in love with Gary Cady

She blogged she was done reviewing the series, but she will never be done watching me
