    I know this doesn’t help it’s renewal prospects but it’s still nice to see. I think this show has found it’s groove this season and the episodes have all been really good.

    Good news. I really like this show. Have been in since day one.

    The show works a lot better when they just do original stories and characters rather than trying shoehorn in ideas from the Sherlock Holmes stories.
