Benedict Cumberbatch & Jonny Lee Miller: Still OK, despite “cynical” feelings

In case you were under a rock, BBC televisions show, Sherlock, is one of the greatest things to exist in the last several years. The casting, the writing, the direction…everything comes together perfectly. And the the greatest coup of the show is the lead, played by the excellent Benedict Cumberbatch. CBS saw the show, and […]

Blightyvision: “Sherlock” Series 2

Created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss Written by Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and Steve Thompson Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, and Andrew Scott After the ending of the first series of Sherlock, a friend tweeted desperately to Steven Moffat that clearly he forgot to deliver the next episode to the BBC.  For more than […]

Blightyvision: “Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes”

Written by David Pirie Directed by Paul Marcus Starring Ian Richardson and Charles Edwards Well, ’tis the season and all that. A Game of Shadows comes out tomorrow, with the second season of the Cumberbatch/Moff “Sherlock” premiering on New Year’s Day.  And thus the Sherlockians divide themselves even further — which, other than giving me […]

Blightyvision: “Sherlock Holmes” (1968)

Starring Peter Cushing and Nigel Stock Produced by David Goddard and William Sterling With all the mad hullabaloo going down concerning this ridiculous War of the Sherlocks coming next month, I’ve found myself looking more and more into older versions, through the kindness of Netflix and other various sources.  On the same fateful night I discovered Hobo with […]

Kara’s Fan Rage of the Day: Sherlock vs. Sherlock

I love me some Sherlock Holmes.  In any form.  I love Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett’s classic takes on the stories.  I love Robert Downey, Jr.’s Victorian action man and Benedict Cumberbatch’s high-functioning sociopath.  Hell, I’ll even watch that one with the dinosaurs now that Netflix is streaming it.  I love the fact that one […]

According to Variety, Stephen Fry (Stephen Fry in America, Alice in Wonderland) has signed on to play Sherlock Holmes’ older brother in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes 2. Fry made the announcement during an unrelated talk on BBC radio. I’m […]

The Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Watchlist: Coming Back Next Season!

Rather than focusing this week on one upcoming project, I’m thinking it’s time for me to tackle this news of the announcements of two shows returning soon and put a few minds (much like mine) at ease.

The Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Watchlist: “Sherlock”

No deerstalkers here, either, no sir. Steven Moffat’s been getting a lot of face-time — or perhaps that should be “name-time” — in my articles of late.  But you have to admit, he’s been a busy guy over the past few years.  Ruling Who-ville and continuing with other projects on the side does put him […]

No shit? Robert Downey Jr. is Sherlock?; also, is Favreau on Iron Man 2 finally? (updated)

Unlike the recent empty, “in negotiations” casting chatter about Platinum’s Cowboys and Aliens, Variety reports that Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, Zodiac) has “committed” to star in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming Sherlock Holmes flick for Warner Bros. The film begins shooting in October. Ritchie revised the Sherlock Holmes script by Anthony Peckham (The Human Factor, to […]
