Now that the BBC's "Sherlock" is returning January 2017 for its fourth season, Honest Trailers decided to finally give the show the sarcastic trailer it deserves.
In a YouTube video posted Tuesday, Honest Trailers delivers a spot-on description of "Sherlock," starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson, right down to the remake's extra-modern feel due to the characters' blogging.
Honest Trailers points out that Sherlock repeatedly saying he's a "high-functioning sociopath" is really just code for he's a jerk, while Watson's main function on the show is to give meaningful reaction shots.
"Enjoy a witty, smart, clever show that's obnoxiously aware of how witty, smart, and clever it is; as it keeps you on the edge of your seat trying to solve the latest puzzles and cliffhangers," Honest Trailers' narrator adds. "Then spits in your face for even bothering to try."
Bonus points for the montages of Sherlock sniffing things, Moriarty licking stuff and Watson's adorable run.
