Stories of Sherlock Holmes have been retold through countless mediums since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first published his mystery novels in the late 1800s. But Benedict Cumberbatch’s incarnation of the witty detective has captivated millions in a way no other remake has before.
BBC has produced 13 total episodes of “Sherlock,” with the possibility of more still to come.
“Lost” charts the story of plane-crash survivors stuck on a mysterious island. Though the final seasons left a sour taste in some fans’ mouths, the first season of “Lost” is among the highest-rated shows on Metacritic.

Starring Timothy Olyphant, all six seasons of “Justified” were praised by critics and fans alike for its sharp storytelling and stellar acting.
