The Game Is On



For love of all that is holy, you owe it to yourselves to watch Sherlock. I know, I've never spoken of it before, but it's this crazy awesome series about Sherlock Holmes in a modern setting, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman -- how can you go wrong. There is excitement, action, mystery, bromance, badassery, and the Cumbervoice. Resistance is futile.

And just so you don't have any excuses, YOU CAN WATCH IT STREAMING ONLINE.

So go, you guys, and watch! And then understand and be more horrified by the artwork I've been posting here. Now my work is done, and I shall sleep soundly tonight.

Benedict Cumberbatch is the most ridiculously awesome name in existence. And you've officially convinced me to watch this.

Thank you so much for giving me the link! I've been wanting to watch it, since (alas)we don't have TV. Thanks again!! I love both those actors!

I watched it as soon as it was on the bbc! I was a little obsessed! It is amazing! :)

I love Sherlock so, so much. When it was on I got slightly obsessed with it — It's just so, so good. Plus , Benedict Cumberpatch is my favourite name EVER!

Although he does look kind of like Sid from Ice Age...in a good way.

Oh, yeah, WHAT! Sherlock and I are like this (fingers crossed). The fact that you're pimping Sr. Holmes makes the blogosphere 100 time cooler. Because he's a badass. That's right.

Blythe and Charlotte said...

This show is so good! I was blown away! I heard about it and really wanted to watch it but I couldn't find it! Thanks!

I had to tell you. My best friend is obsessed with everything Sherlock Holmes, and we were in Barns and Nobel the other day and she saw this series on the wall and really really wanted to see it. Of course, I remembered seeing posted somewhere that you could watch it online, and could not remember at all where I saw the link. And then I saw it again on your blog and though "dur, that's where you saw it to begin with!". And then I sent it to her. You just made someone VERY happy.

Anyways. End (pointless/weird) rant.

I hope you're enjoying the holidays, Meg!!

Benedict Cumberbatch: The man whose voice sounds like a jaguar inside of a cello. YUMMM-O!

If you really like Sherlock (created in part by Steven Moffat), then you should give the new Doctor Who a try (whose head writer is now Moffat)!!!!

In the Christmas episode (which is the most recent episode that aired), Doctor has a bit of a Sherlock moment and it made me wonder if Moffat forgot which show he was writing...LOL.

Anyway, just spent some time cruising your blog and I love it! Your outfits are adorable!!

Amendment to above comment: DUH. IT JUST DAWNED ON ME THAT YOUR FLIPPING BLOG'S NAME IS 'BOW TIES ARE COOL.' Never mind that I just made an absolute fool of myself...(*faceplam*)
