The "Real" SHERLOCK HOLMES?

If the new movie has whetted your appetite for Sherlock Holmes, can I humbly recommend the 1980s Grenada tv series starring Jeremy Brett?

For my money, forget Basil Rathbone, forget Robert Downey Jr, Jeremy Brett IS Sherlock Holmes. Simultaneously more traditional and more flamboyant than anything in the new film, Brett's performance is just note perfect. These are my absolute favorite things to watch on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

And they have a great theme song, to boot!
