Liked it, though seems the best episodes of Sherlock have been the first episode in both seasons.
A lot of people would agree with you there - coincidently, those are the two episodes Moffat wrote
I personally liked them both as I thought they were the most intelligent - they showed off Sherlock's thought process and deductive reasoning skills the best, and kept twisting and turning to keep the story flowing.
On the subject of that death, I suppose Sherlock could have hidden his own pulse. He was seen playing with the squash ball in the lab and staring at it... and a squashball in your armpit can stop the pulse in your arm, which would fit in with why Watson didn't notice a pulse (assuming this was Sherlock's body and not someone elses).
