Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman star in “Sherlock.”

My new favorite show is “Sherlock” on PBS. Have you seen it yet? I’m late to the party yet again, but at least I made it. The show started in 2010, so it’s only a few years old.

From the first five minutes of episode one, “A Study in Pink,” I was captivated. Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson! Who knew?! They are both fantastic, Cumberbatch especially, who I’d never seen in anything before.

I’ve been trying to broaden my horizons. A symphony here, a new show there. I hope to attend my first opera over the weekend, too. What magnificent piece of entertainment have you discovered lately? jen.mulson@gazette.com
