Seasons 1 and 2 of Sherlock on BBC are probably the best argument ever for short run TV. 6 episodes all impeccably acted, written, and produced. No dragged out drama. No wasted movement. Every moment of that show has something to savor. There's no season 3 of Lost or season 8 of Friends let downs. Plus there's Benedict Cumberbatch's cheekbones which are essentially characters of their own.
