Quick comment on popular culture and PBS

Mystery… omg [no tweet account… or farcebook… so just ignore if you don’t want to read about PBS]

Just saw Sherlock, “The Great Game“. Just spent 35 minutes scaring the cats by yelling at the television for the cliffhanger. Yes, yes. I do know how the canon ends this one. But in the meantime… PBS has done this right by getting something done with interesting acting, an interesting rethinking of London’s image, and re-imagining everything from the Baker Street Irregulars to how villians are introduced. Modernization ala the new series of Dr. Who.

And no knitting was injured during this one. I was too involved in what I was watching and all the quick stuff (some of which was horrible, because after all where there’s Sherlock there is inevitably crime).

    I can’t even begin to tell you how exactly like yours my reaction was. I yelled, and I mean YELLED, at the TV when the episode ended, and pounded the couch. Startled my cats a bit, too.

    I tried to knit but just ended up holding the needles and sock stock-still in the air. And it’s a good thing, too, or my tension would have been through-the-roof tight.

    Thanks for this posting. Good to know I’m not alone!

      Oh no… you’re not alone. I’m sure there are lots of other people who are in the same boat. Hoping they wrap the cliffhanger up soon (although in my region it looks like we’re switching to some sort of biopic on John & Yoko, which looks interesting but not the second half of the cliffhanger).
