    "I love British TV shows and am looking for some new recommendations. I'm intrigued by Sherlock because I love mysteries and Sherlock Holmes is definitely a classic British character. I do see that one episode won some Emmy awards so that's a sign it's a pretty good show. However, there are no ratings or reviews which are what I rely on most to determine if I want to watch something. I will probably give this a try and see if I like it."
