I have become aware of BBC's Sherlock and it is the best thing ever. Discuss.
Not like it matters with how long it will take before the next season comes out.
It is pretty damn amazing with all that Cumberbatch and Freeman. They should be in everything.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is fucking amazing. First season was hits and misses for me but second season up to 6 now has been so good.
Not too long ago there was talk somewhere of a Dtoidesque Robot head appearing in Portlandia, it's the first sketch of the second episode of series 3 as aired recently.
It's on youtube! It's supposed to be Shufflebot from LMFAO but totally looks more like Mr Dtoid. Toneman was in it too. Weird coincidence, but fun sketch.
Some stuff in that show is eh, but every now and again they have something that makes lose my shit and in the latest episode it was the Spoilers sketch bit. Especially the ending.
I watched Bag of Bones, because I really liked the book and decided to torment myself with the inevitable shitty adaptation of a Stephen King story (bar Stand By Me and Shawshank Redemption, obviously).
It wasn't too bad, but Melissa George will always be Angel from Home & Away or the naked dead chick from Dark City for me. Oh, and Pierce Brosnan is a terrible actor. I accept that now.
I was just a few hours ago thinking about what my favorite Pierce Brosnan movie is, incidentally.
Tossing between The Matador and Ghost Writer.
He's really handsome, at least. (And, I mean, I really like both those flicks, too)
It's weird because I was watching Guy Pearce in the Jack Irish adaptations over Christmas, and I missed his turn on Neighbours, so he sort of escapes the soap curse for me.
Also, the Jack Irish serials were really good. I think someone in the Metro newspaper summed them up best, "It's like if Daniel Craig turned up to solve a case in Midsomer Murders". They were nice bits of Aussie noir, and Guy went full "A'right, mate!" with his proper accent. Good stuff.
I wish more adaptations played around with formats rather than go for a film or series with short episodes. And yeah I picked up on their playing the antagonist(s) and protagonist in the Hobbit ages ago and thought it was cool. They're cool. THEY SHOULD BE IN ALL THINGS.
There's another modern Holmes show running at the moment called Elementary which I've heard is better than Sherlock.
