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:
