I am completely and utterly in love with the BBC series Sherlock. Just discovered it and I am completely hooked (and so annoyed that there are only 3 episodes!). Love the stories, love the acting, love Benedict Cumberbatch, love the cinematography and the way the whole thing is put together. Have watched all three episodes (and then rewatched two of them) since Thursday night and am now wondering how to survive until next year! The British sure know how to make fantastic television but it is a shame that they make so few episodes.
I've finally gotten around to watching the second half of season 7 for NCIS. I had stopped watching week by week because I was getting a little bored with the show and frustrated by the direction it was taking. But I have to say the break did some good and it made me realise how much I missed the show and that I do still love NCIS, just not as much as I once did. And I'm not sure whether the writing picked up or approaching it with fresh eyes helped but I did enjoy most of it.
Some random thoughts (spoilers):
-I loved the last scene of Obsession, so sad but I loved how comfortable Tony felt with Gibbs to admit that he wasn't ok. And the scene with Tony and Gibbs walking up to the house (the one where Gibbs mentions planting roses), lots of squee there too! But the whole episode did remind me of a copy of the movie Laura, which I had watched after Tony referenced it in An Eye For An Eye.
-A couple of nice Tony/Abby hugs. But overall a serious lack of Tony/Abby moments. :(
-They killed Macy! Another female agent killed. But I did like the fact that Tony mentions that it always seems to be female agents. And the way he rubbed his fingers over his badge, he's done that before (Grace Period I think) and it was nice to have some consistency with how he deals with the death of an agent.
-Think I'm just going to block the whole Hart/Bell/Mexico Gibbs thing. Didn't find it interesting at all. And for someone who doesn't believe in coincidences, he sure has a lot in his own life. But I am worried about what will happen to Jackson.
