Television and I have become great friends.

We started watching the BBC Sherlock and it. is. excellent. The dialogue is sharp and witty and kind of mean. I dig.

But there are only three episodes in the first season and three in the second. It's going to be Downton Abbey all over again, where we whiz through all the available material and then sit around looking at each other like, NOW WHAT.

Also, Benedict Cumberbatch. Most made-up-sounding British name, most elongated Tim-Burton-esque-looking British person.

Spoiler me and I will cut you. We only just finished the cliff-hangery final episode of Season One, and HOLY SHIT.

Sherlock! Gah, this show. We just finished the second season a week or so ago and I am going through withdrawal. Although, I know I will rewatch all the episodes because Benedict Cumberbatch (serious, the best name) and Martin Freeman are so wonderful, it's just not the same as having brand new episodes.

Yo! I spy a fellow Cumberbitch.

The crazy thing is that it's his real name. I heard him say in an interview that people tried to convince him to get a stage name, but he stuck with Benedict Cumberbatch because it sounds like a fart in a bathtub.

I always want to call him Hubert Cumberbitch.

We did the exact same thing this weekend, and I'm filling my "what do I do now" time with catching up on blogs. I texted my friend who loves the show earlier in the weekend with "Benedict Cumberbatch is the Britishest of Britishy names"
