About Me

This is sort of serving as my back-up account. My main fanfiction site is Lunaescence Archives - the penname is "Hat-Trick". Anything I post on there, expect to see it on here at some point. Anyway, I'm a 18 year old girl who lives in Bonnie Scotland (>:D) and loves; anime/manga, the Transformers franchise, reading, playing video games, watching good TV programmes and world history (especially Scottish and Prussian). So, feel free to message me and stuff! :3 I'm a nice person, I promise!

Addiction to Sherlock (BBC TV Series)

sherlock-bbc-2010-L-1.jpg



Ahh~ I currently have a brand new obsession in the form of a TV series called "Sherlock". It's apparently been on the air (in the UK, where it's made) since 2010, but I only just discovered it last Sunday where I saw the episode entitled "Hounds of Baskerville".

To begin with, I was rather uncertain about how good the quality would be, but after a mere ten minutes, I was completely hooked. I know, I know, a modern day Sherlock Holmes doesn't sound like it would work, but believe me, it does; it stays faithful to the source material, too!

It's co-written by the writers of the ever-great Doctor Who (Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss - Gatiss also plays Mycroft!), so you know that each episode will bring snappy, witty and entirely accurate dialogue; it's a great joy to find such a rare gem in modern television.

It also helps that the two main characters are played by brilliant actors; Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes) and Martin Freeman (Dr. John Watson) have an amazing ability to make the flaws of their respective on-screen characters oddly likeable and charming. Such as, Sherlock's lack of empathy, or Watson's fairly short temper.

The only downside is that there is only three episodes per season; but it more than makes up for it by the episodes being 90 minutes (1 and 1/2 hours) long.

Sadly, the season two finale was aired on Sunday, and it left on a massive cliffhanger; I was very upset. Thankfully, though, a season three has been confirmed to be made, so I'm very much looking forward to it~



(P.S. If you read all of my illegiable fangirl squealing, then you, dear reader, are a genius and/or a Saint.)
