^ Aw, that's too bad. I'd write an angry email to your PBS if I were you!
It will be on the DVD though if you're planning on getting that. And as dardar said it's available for digital download.
More great moments...
The reveal in Serbia that the man being beaten is Sherlock (!) and one of his guards is Mycroft (!!).
That scene with Watson and Mrs. Hudson where he tells her he's met someone, and she assumes it's a MAN! Such a witty, bantering exchange that ends with Watson declaring "I'M*NOT*GAY!"
The very tense scenes of John trapped in that Guy Fawkes bonfire as Sherlock frantically tries to rescue him. (Nice reference point since they are about to investigate a plan to bomb Parliament...and that's what Fawkes attempted.)

Deleted due to duplicate.
(And really, what idiot at Westminster schedules a big, all-night debate for parliament on Nov 5 for hank's sake? )
When they had the kids doing their "penny for the Guy" thing early in the episode (when John went back to Baker St, before Sherlock's reappearance), I did think at the time that it was foreshadowing. And it's been a long time since I read the Conan Doyle books -- was this one based on one of his stories? (I vaguely remember the first Downey Sherlock movie being about a plot to bomb parliament ...)
dardar1126, can you PM me the Amazon page of the behind the scenes episode? I can't seem to find it...
I loved the bit with the Holmes parents.
On the off-topic section of Planet Gallifrey (the Doctor Who board) the Sherlock discussion took a wild left-hand turn in a discussion of the accuracy - or lack thereof - and then the usual who cares/I care about the schedule and etc, etc, of the Undergound line and the type of train, and how long it took and etc., etc. Totally had me at the irony.
Loved John's reaction to the return, loved the scenarios, loved the reveal of Molly's boyfriend and the pause Sherlock made as he put on his scarf. I love that fact that BC's real parents played his on-screen parents. And I like Mary. I just hope she doesn't share the fate of book Mary, but they've changed things up in many areas all along, that it isn't inevitable.
When I first saw the ep, my thought was, fun,lots of fan service, but slightly underwhelmed. But, I also thought that they needed to set up whatever was coming.
In other matters. The only things that seemed to be cut were a couple of words. In one case, in the bomb diffusing scene John calls Sherlock a "cock", and I think he did it in one other instance. So - that's good.

Watson's mustache, Sherlock's parents and a very surprising French accent are among the standouts of the PBS/BBC show's return.
TRANSCRIPT FROM THE DUEL IN DEDUCTION, IN THE EMPTY HEARSE
Earlier tonight I was asked to transcribe Mycroft and Sherlock’s little duel in deduction over that hat. I have now done so. There’s a lot to be pulled out of this for analysis, but it’s late, so I will give it to you without commentary, for now. It’s not perfect, at all. With my thanks to drinkingcocoa-tpp, theprogressofspring and cakeanddust for the corrections.

EDIT2: More SHERLOCK nepotism...

When I saw the Ep the first time, I wondered about them, because I knew his parents were actors, so I went to look them up and found out they were his parents. I think it was her eyes.
#10 - I can't believe that none of the recaps I've read, mentioned that. It's like one of the most famous "Holmesisms" ever.
#23 - I know...why not?
Posting to bump the thread up, and to say that I got my Series 3 DVD's in the mail last night!!! I think I've watched each episode at least 3 times now. Always something different to discover.
If you aren't taping them as you watch, you might want to reconsider that. Just sayin.
Yep - Region 2. Had to complete my set correctly doncha know.
I know - right? There are a couple of scenes that on the rewatch, had me sort of reassessing a few things. Can't wait to be able to talk about it.I agree that all the episodes stand up to multiple viewings. I recorded last week's and might re-watch before this Sunday. (Even if only to spot the Tardis. )
