Brief Synopsis:
This condensed two-episode double feature aims to leave the viewer with a sense of ambigiouty over Sherlock's survival, as well as a more swift and immediate response to Mary Watson's predicament rather than go through some playful baiting tactics. In addition to that, footage from a mini-sode and a deleted scene have been inserted into the edits to give the viewing experiance something fresh. Also included is an all new alternative ending.
Intention:
To cut away all the filler and create something that could tell the same stories in less time, as well as provide Sherlock with something he'll never be allowed to have... a bit of a Disney ending.

Great job with this one Zarius! Being a huge Sherlock fan, I truly enjoyed this edit. The first episode is just as its title, the little that remains. Very streamlined and fast paced which is nice to see in Sherlock. The Adventures of CAM is a great cut of the original. There are good cuts in this, but sadly the narrative kinda suffers due to the skip of the wedding, because suddenly Mary and John are married, but I and the people who have watched the original episodes can easily connect the dots so that's alright.

Also, this awesome edit inspired my own first edit, The Return of Sherlock, so, thanks a lot Zarius!

I'll certainly recommend this edit for anyone that enjoys a good dose of Sherlock. :)

A splendid trim of the third series, with a fast-paced first episode and a follow-up adventure with Magnussen and Mary as centerpieces. Zarius has edited both episodes with great care, with the audio and video seamlessly stitched together. A slight drop in video quality in the beginning; my uneducated guess is that the minisode came in a different flavor of video quality.

All in all, this works very well as a trimmed version of series 3. I will say that because much (if not all) of the second episode is gone, information in Adventure of CAM has to be filled in by the viewer. Not knowing the original episodes might confuse a new viewer for a moment. As such, this becomes a great companion piece and continuation to theryaney's The Return of Sherlock, watching them back-to-back.

The narrative is otherwise compelling, yet streamlined.

Recommended!
