Hello, my darling readers! You know what they say: better late than never! I finally binged all four Sherlock seasons, so I want to share a few quick thoughts I have about them.
You know the drill: Sherlock Holmes (a dash eccentric), Dr. Watson and a load of crimes to be solved!
Why did I wait so long with this?! I absolutely loved it. Benedict Cumberbatch’s take on Sherlock is amazing and although most people would call him antisocial, I find him to be very relatable. In the first episode we get the following exchange:
Sherlock Holmes: Shut up. DI Lestrade: I didn’t say anything. Sherlock Holmes: You were thinking. It’s annoying.
I felt that. Yes, I am weird as well. Sorry, not sorry.
Hey, guys! Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks. It’s a series hosted by Wandering through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme. This week, it’s a TV special featuring crime!
I’m currently watching Sherlock and I’m absolutely in love with Benedict Cumberbatch’s take on the role. The show is brilliant, so everybody please go ahead and watch it.
#2 Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad is often considered one of the best shows ever made. If you give it a shot, you’ll see from the first episode on why that is. The story of a chemistry teacher turning into a criminal. Every time I re-watch the show I discover a new detail I had previously missed!
This post is another installment in my “better late than never” series. People have been swooning about Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes for years now but I never had the time or the interest to check in with the show.
However, I finally changed my mind – and I’m glad I did!
Thought #1 – The Books:
So far I’ve only seen the first season but I can already tell that this show is great. I love how the original stories made the transition in today’s world. Although only loosely based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s books, you can still see where it came from. I’m 100% inspired to check out the novels now! Continue reading →
