With her throw back to old-time BBC comedy series, Miranda, Miranda Hart has built a career around exploiting the universal truth that awkwardness lies at the heart of the human condition . After her first appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe, it was a mere 11 years later that she became an overnight success, leaving the […]

Blue’s Clues meets Sherlock

Now that we have determined that Sherlock shouldn’t be at the top of anyone’s list to watch telly with, thanks to the genius minds over a College Humor, we can also remove the need to see what would happen if Sherlock was called to the set of Blue’s Clues to solve a case. It isn’t […]

International Silly Walks Day – A January 7 post mortem

Blame the Monty Python troupe if you will, but we could all do with a bit more preposterous prancing in our daily routine. How could we have let this pass by without even so much as a mention leading up to such silliness. I guess we should get some what of a pass given that […]

Become part of Sherlock’s ‘Homeless Network’ with new iPhone app

We used to say that you know you’ve arrived when you are subject of a Jimmy Fallon parody, a Saturday Night Life sketch or featured in a segment on Red Nose Day. Owners of all three, Downton Abbey went one step further when Lady Mary, herself, participated in a game of antler toss to promote […]

Happy #SherlockLives Day! & Sherlock: The Musical!

Yes, I know, it’s Sunday. Must be Downton Day in America. While that may be true, I’m afraid it just might be a simple case of ‘move over Downton’ because it’s officially Sherlock Day today! A day that American audiences have been (im)patiently waiting for since that fateful day in May 2010 when series 2 […]
