Surely Sherlock

8:00 AM
In the effort of immersing myself in British culture to prepare for outreach, I've had a recent obsession with Sherlock Holmes. No, not Robert Downey Jr's Sherlock Holmes, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and the BBC hit, Sherlock. Both winners in my book. The BBC show [now on Netflix] is what really got me hooked. It's a modern-day retelling of Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson. Brilliantly edited, incredibly written, well acted and just plan fun. Here's a season one teaser that you MUST see:

So I've watched both seasons of this show, and have then proceeded to download the original novels and short stories on my Kindle [because they are pretty much free!] and have been devouring those as well. One of my favorite things in entertainment is a well developed character. And Sherlock is just that. Enigmatic, witty, clever, arrogant, and charming....all in one! How can you not just love him?

So needless to say, I'll be visiting 221B Baker Street soon, and maybe uncover a mystery of my own...
