SHERLOCK IS BACK AND I’M SO HAPPY! The Abominable Bride runs tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight!
I love Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. I love them in almost every single thing that they are in, both individually, and together. The Hobbit (both of them.) Star Trek. The Fifth Estate. Agatha Christie’s Marple: Murder Is Easy. I mean, Benedict (we’re on a first name basis already) is talented, and super easy on the eyes, and he doesn’t mind making fun of himself. Have you seen him pose like an otter?
I know that there are a TON of Cumberbabes around the world, but I honestly REALLY, REALLY like him. Not stalker like, but I wouldn’t ever pass up an invitation to meet him. Because, FINE. He’s absolutely, positively gorgeous to me, and his stint as the very unlikable, but lovable Sherlock Holmes, sealed the deal with me. Which brings to me to why I’m so excited about tonight.
Can I tell you that I HATE the schedule of British television? Especially this Sherlock series. Only THREE 90 minute episodes (or series as they are called) and then we have to wait two years in between. Hogwash. The episodes are all based on the stories of Arthur Conan Doyle, and I love them. So much so, that I have been looping them on Netflix during the time when they are not playing. I have my favorites, but I think that you should start at the beginning of the show instead of in the middle. There is always a great arc over the three series, and you need to watch them all in order to get some inside jokes.
I find myself even thinking about pledging more to PBS so that they know just how much they need to order more of the shows, because I’m SURE they have that much pull. Because Mark Gatiss is all about doing what I suggest.
Also, let it be known that Cumberbatch is going to be Dr. Strange in Marvel’s new movie of the same name. I’m dying a little inside. The photos are amazing from what I’ve seen, and I’m going to be all fangirl squealing when it’s released.
Back to Sherlock. 8 pm CST I will be glued to PBS and probably live tweeting my reactions and hoping and praying that I can catch the repeats every time they happen. Honestly, love Sherlock, the characters, the sets, the trench coat and scarf, and the quick witted zingers from the title character. The Sign of Three and His Last Vow are two of my favorite episodes, but that could also be because they were the very last two of the show.
So, will you be tuning in to PBS tonight, or am I going to appreciate the storyline and the actors all by myself? I’m okay with that.
