She's only seen episode 1 and part of episode 2 of series 1 so far. I told her that I liked eps 1 and 3 of that season but there was too much Yellow Peril in ep 2. And then we agreed that while that was certainly a theme in the original Holmes canon, it was an aspect that didn't need to be resurrected for the reboot.
