    Kudos on Sherlock not taking three to six months to wrap up the current ‘season’. Hey, it’s Sherlock Holmes, meaning never the end.

    Really wish I had caught the special time note for Sherlock, at 8p.m. I was tuned in to PBS and found I had missed out. Usually Sherlock is replayed in the wee hours but according to tv guide not this week. WHY? Anybody know when the season finale will repeat?
