Watched the second Sherlock, and while I liked it a lot more than the first, I'm starting to get sick of the ol'

trope. From now on, anything that does that gets an instant "0" on the Squirt scale, unless it's saved by a pretty spectacular "1" on the Craster scale.

The final episode of Sherlock was well edited, well acted and well scripted, and would have been some pretty awesome TV if it wasn't an episode of Sherlock.

Seriously - what the fuck was all that about? They built a world for us in the first series and that episode shat all over it.

I was genuinely gripped by the whole setup until

So, I agree. Loved watching it, but the endings are so poor.

I don't think there's anything more I can add to it. It was great TV, but I expected something different.

I didn't expect the rebooted 'Crystal Maze' to be that darker and grittier..

Kern with the winning joke!

I have to concur. I enjoyed it, but it was a bit silly, and not really what I wanted.

Though worth it just for:

Moriarty! I just love that actor as the character. I was ever so upset when he died. Lovely to see him back, even if the video stuff was a bit rubbish.

Eh. It was an enjoyable episode, but a real pity if it'a the last ever, which I believe to be the case.

It was a great episode, with a weak ending.

Clearing out my DVR, I caught up with 'Cunk on Christmas'. I've always been a little bit uneasy about Ms Cunk's oeuvre, and wasn't sure that she could last half an hour, but I was pleasantly surprised with many laugh out loud lines, of which I've listed three of the most memorable:

ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
"...Like Jesus, Father Christmas is used as a bribe to make children behave, although in his case the prize isn't eternal salvation but rather presents..."
"...Santa judges a child's goodness mainly on parental income..."
and, of course, the entire description of 'Die Hard' as the ultimate Christmas movie


Worth catching up with whilst your local still serves mulled wine (so, anytime before mid-March)

No. He gave a someone ambiguous quote saying he didn't want to play Sherlock again but it would be unlikely we'd see it 'at the same regular cadence'.

So, er, dunno.

I'd like to see a Doctor Who episode featuring all three contemporary depictions of Sherlock working together.

Just because.

Yeah, tonight has hard. I got the Parliament holidays and Peter Rabbit and I think that was about it.

I only got the F1 on the missing vowel round, too.

BBC Four, 21:00 tonight: Scotland and the Klan.

This looks interesting:

By deep South, they mean the colonies, not the Isle of Wight.

This phrase really annoys me, unless you're actually talking about the original colonies and not modern America for a change. It's so condescending.

What? No it isn't. Especially not coming from Kern, who I would suggest is by far the most learned and respectful chap on the subject of Americana that we have.

It comes across lording superiority over Americans for some unknown reason, when we're just as bad.

Also I'd say his opinion on British colonialism is possibly somewhat different to mine.

It does?

Hang on, I'll ask Sarah at work, she's from Noo Yuck.

"I think it's cute."

Well, there we are.

I think you're trying far too hard to be offended there. When people refer to America as "the colonies" the joke is because they are a global superpower, massively bigger and more important than we are. It's not "lording superiority", it's wryly acknowledging the opposite.

It's cute (the Colonies thing, not Myp. Although not he's beard-free... :hat:).

Err, no. It annoys me because I've been specifically told by Americans who live here that they don't like it. It's eye-rollingly cringeworthy. :shrug:
