Sherlock (yes the new BBC adaptation everyone is raving about): I just LOVE the characterisations of Sherlock and Watson in this one. Sherlock is so unintentionally hilarious, it's brilliant. And while it's a modern day version of the famous detective stories I find it pretty accurate with what I know of it as well. Even thought we haven't seen nearly enough of Lestrade and Moriarty and the storylines in particularly the second episode and partly the third left something to be desired I am completely drawn in by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman's portrayals of the iconic characters (and undoubting Steven Moffat and co's mostly fantastic writing). I find it difficult to put into words just how much I enjoyed these episodes, so let's just say A LOT. However, I can not believe they left it where they did and we'll likely have to wait at least another year on the new series! Having only three episodes to rewatch obsessively is hardly enough to bridge that huge gap :(

Bonus: Benedict Cumberbatch being very close with David Tennant.

The Big Bang Theory: I have been flailing about this show on Twitter while watching all three seasons in a couple of weeks time, but I don't think I've mentioned on here yet how completely obsessed with it I've become in the last month or two. Despite not particularly liking Sheldon (I know 99.9% of TBBT fandom will disagree with me on that one) I have to admit the "Bazinga", *Knock. Knock. Knock.* "Penny?" and all his amazing one-liners ("I cry because others are stupid and that makes me sad." "I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested." "If I'm permitted to speak again, Dr Sheldon Cooper for the win!") are at the core of the comedy in this series and I do love him for that. But as a character his lack of social skills make him kind of annoying and I feel much more drawn to Leonard (who I think is absolutely adorable <3 Even though I don't find the actor appealing at all - must be the geek glasses), Raj and even Howard and all his crazy womanising antics. And I finally understand all the icons talking about "rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock", yay! As I've been pretty much ignoring everything TBBT for the past few years because I didn't think I'd like it (how wrong I was) I have no clue who else loves this show, so let me know in the comments because I need to discuss and flail with you guys!

In the mean time, look at this amazing photoshoot I came across:










Pictures are altered by me, please don't take. You can find the originals and many more at the source. Thank you.

1. You definitely got me interested in Sherlock! I seen some picspams and they look gorgeous :)

2. I love this photoshoot - it is awesome seeing them all glam up! Have you seen the one where they portray tv/movie events from the past (Twilight, Susan B, etc)?

I really do love that picture of BC and DT, so random, so suggestive.

And this TBBT cast picspam is amazing. They all look fantastic.

Ahuh, I know. I'm not sure if Benedict is pulling David so close or David is clinging to Benedict, but either way... can we have more? :D And then to think I first only saw this picture (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_KTJWhtuRLac/TFIBwHJ9hhI/AAAAAAAALEo/f4mTKXPZEfA/s1600/benedict_cumberbatch-david_tennant_pic1.jpg) and I could do nothing but stare at the size of Benedict's head.

Don't they? *draws hearts all around them*

Do you watch TBBT too? :D

I only started watching HIMYM last year (having marathoned all seasons just before the show came back) and was equally obsessed with it as I am with TBBT now. I think the lack of new episodes plus the fact that I was watching a season "real time" this season and having to wait a week (or more) between episodes kind of killed the flailing, but I did love it just as much as TBBT when I was watching the DVDs <3

OMG the photoshoot is made of WIN.

I agree. Sheldon can be hilarious, but he can also be very annoying. My favorite bazinga moment has to be him in the ball-pit trying to avoid Leonard.

"Will you sing 'soft kitty' with me?"

Raj and Howard's relationship is all kinds of special too. :P

Yeah the ball-pit Bazinga's are my favourites too XD And also "Bazinga. I don't care" <3

Haha isn't it? I love how to both pine after girls yet they're so obviosuly made for each other.

HEY, BIG BANG THEORY! One of my favourite shows ever. I love those geek boys, and Penny.

Unlike you, I love Sheldon. I can admit his flaws, but I think he is portrayed beautifully and kind of is the crux of the show (although sometimes to the point of over-use). I think the latest season was the weakest of the three, and I didn't care for the Leonard/Penny relationship at all (because I think Leonard needs to focus on Penny as a person, rather than a hot blond). But that is just me!

I love the entire cast. They are always hilarious together and seem like they are great friends as well. And the photoshoot here is lovely. I'm up on everything TBBT because I run jimparsons.net (http://www.jimparsons.net) :D

It's not Jim I don't like and I I know he's at the centre of the show (seriously without Sheldon, no TBBT) but as a character he can be soooo annoying! And I just don't understand why the other's put up with him? I haven't seen Jim in anything else yet, I have to admit. I know you run the fansite and I'm sure you've seen most of his work, anything you can recommend?

I don't have a favourite season because they all kinda blended into one for me as I watched all episodes in a row, but I do agree with you on the Penny/Leonard relationship. Speaking of Leonard, i was reading this list of what actors earn for each episode and Johnny gets quite a lot more than Jim. That I don't get, because it's obvious that Sheldon is the main character...

Have you seen Sherlock? I think it started while you were still in the US, but if you haven't seen the pilot yet.. go watch it now!!

I'm pretty sure the photoshoot was for some kind of magazine, so I have no idea what that means budgetwise but it's not an actual promo for the show as such ;)
