Aretha hat!
I don't agree. I feel like the writing has gotten better and they aren't doing the procedural side to the show anymore since introducing Moran and Moriarty, they will still have a crime of the week but they will also be developing the Holmes mythology more. I feel like the character development is first class and I love how different Jonny Lee Miller's acting interpretation of Holmes is compared to the very one dimensional and clinical Cumberbatch interpretation.

I don't think Sherlock is dumb in this show.
