Benedict your too nice to us
But Benedict didn’t… He can’t even… He was just repeating what Rebecca Eaton… It’s not like he has the power to…

‘The boodle. The reward. The 500 pounds.’
Sherlock Holmes being “American” is endlessly entertaining to me.
Remember when every American had an anthrax scare in the Reichenbach Falls
If you’re a Sherlock fan who’s also looking forward to Elementary, or you at least want to see it before you make up your mind about it, Grubwithus is offering a “First Taste of CBS’ Elementary” package. You pay for a meal, get an early copy of Elementary’s pilot on DVD, and then go eat your meal at the same time as other people who’ve seen the episode so you can talk about it.
(The meals aren’t cheap—$25—and the availability is limited to certain U.S. cities. But you can decide what seeing the show a couple weeks early is worth to you.)
The two quotes above (from DigitalSpy’s MGEITF Sherlock Masterclass liveblog) plus Rebecca Eaton of PBS/Masterpiece saying she expected a 2013 airdate plus the fact that autumn is actually a sweeps period for the U.S., and I’m feeling really hopeful about the possibility that Americans won’t have the same ridiculous “it’s already aired everywhere else” wait for Series 3 that we did for Series 2.
(There was also an unconfirmed report today that David Arnold suggested a possible October 2013 airdate.)
I can’t decide if this is the worst idea ever or the best idea ever.
It might be both.
Do you have any idea where an American can watch the Olympics opening?
I’m guessing you mean the bit with Cumberbatch? See the video above.
The rest of the opening ceremony will be on NBC in the US.
À propos of nothing, here is Sherlock Hemlock finds an apple: www(.)youtube(.)com/watch?v=fGUf-EoY4VU
Thus answering the question of how we eat apples in America. We like them best when someone else has taken a bite and dropped them on the ground first. YUM.
- me: i want an apple. yeah, i'm gonna have an apple. that's healthy, right? hellz yeah.
- me: oo, i'll grab a little white knife.
- me: and i'm gonna slice pieces off of this apple like jim! yeah! i'll be really kick ass eating my apple like moriarty!
- me: all right, let's do this.
- me: um. ok. there we go! sliced off a, well, a little tiny part. but om nom nom, yeah! i'm badass.
- me: all right, another piece. cool. slicing slices off of my apple.
- me: this is kinda crappy. oh gawd, i almost cut myself.
- me: how the fuck did he do this?
- me: did he have a damn stunt man for his apple or something?
- me: or am i just this horrible at it???
- me: /failing with looking bad ass at slicing my apple/
- me: ah fuck it. i'll just bite it. like a goddamm american!
- me: /mouthful of apple/ yeah that's right. taste that freedom, bitches.
This isn’t going to be an easy battle, especially as Benedict, as of 6/7 is losing. Let us fans show Benedict that not only is he our favourite, but his talent, kindness, and continuing above-and-beyond devotion to exploding our ovaries deserves an apocalyptic amount of votes. Do it for the cheekbones. Do it for the jaguar-trapped-in-a-cello voice, do it for the kaleidoscope eyes and cupid’s bow, do it for the talent and artistry, just vote for Benedict Goddamned Cumberbatch.
ALSO, don’t forget to vote for Martin Freeman for third! [HERE]

re: mince pies. Psh excuses excuses for not trying one, how do you know if you`d like it or not. 1) Most if not all commercial mince pies are made with vegetable suet now days. And it`s only a little in the mince meat to to melt and keep the dried fruit moist, it`s hardly a suet pudding.2) Frozen wtf unbaked?? If not just let those puppies defrost on the way home and eat them. Or even better make your own it`s not rocket science. Or just make excuses never explore a quaint tradition.
So I almost wrote a thoughtful response about multiculturalism. Then I remembered this is Tumblr, and said “screw it.” The correct answer is obviously:
