Review in "The New Yorker" Magazine

Here's a great review:

For people not familiar with The New Yorker, it's a weekly highbrow magazine known both for its longform articles on serious topics and its cartoons.  It also has extensive sections of reviews of arts and cultural happenings.

Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.  -- Helen Keller

Well-written and thoughtful review, thanks for posting.

At last someone who 'gets' the 'love story' aspect for what it really is.  Wonderful review!

And I said "dangerous" and here you are.

You. It's always you. John Watson, you keep me right.

I know I'm late, but this was such a nicely written New Yorker review by Emily Nussbaum.   
One wonders her additional thoughts had she written this after episode 3. 

Some of my favorite quotes:

"Mostly, though, they’re a god and a mortal, mutually besotted— the most impossible love affair of all."

"Holmes sees connections but can’t connect. He’s like a Google algorithm, if it were sexy and wore dashing wool coats."

The Empty Hearse:
"a coded confession of its own status as fan fiction."

The Sign of Three:
"what Watson is to Holmes:  inverts the central love dynamic an episode about Sherlock Holmes as a fan—the god stooping to praise the human."
