Oh. My. #Sherlock

Of course we knew he wasn’t dead, what with that brief glimpse of our hero at the end of Season 2, but how did he survive “The Reichenbach Fall”? Inspired co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss poke fun at fan theories and expectations in the Season 3 premiere, “The Empty Hearse.” Two (of many) highlights: the restaurant reunion of Holmes and Watson (Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) and a motorcycle race through the streets of London on Guy Fawkes Day. #SherlockLives! 10 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19, on KCTS.
While you may need take a moment to recover from the “Hounds of Baskerville” episode of this excellent series (I still get the shivers thinking about it), you may need to gather yourself again for the season finale, “The Reichenbach Fall.” As with season one’s final episode, there are superb cat-and-mouse mind games between Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Moriarty (Andrew Scott, so evil and so good), but events crescendo to an (almost) permanent conclusion. This is not passive television — you must watch and pay attention. Co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss definitely leave you wanting more. Hurry back, boys!
