Sherlock S3 Premiere Gets Highest Ratings Ever From The Fans Who Waited

The BBC’s Sherlock finally returned to (UK) television screens last night, after a painful two-year-long hiatus. Despite essentially being the Amy Pond of fandoms, Sherlockians proved that they were still as dedicated as ever to the Cumberbatch/Freeman cause by giving the show its highest ratings of all time for The Empty Hearse.

In Case You Haven’t Heard Yet, Martin Freeman Made a Rape Joke

Martin Freeman has a history of saying some pretty offensive stuff. The latest in the long line: Asked by an interviewer as part of a The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug press junket whether he’d prefer to date an elf, a hobbit, or a dwarf, he said elf. OK, OK. I’d go with hobbit, but seven meals a day isn’t for everyone. Different stokes for different folks.

And then came the rape joke.

A New Sherlock Season 3 Trailer Emerges, China Will Be Thrilled

This latest trailer for Sherlock Season 3 gives a bit more away than, “John is moping and growing a mustache.” So beware. Meanwhile, if you thought you were a big Sherlock fan, some folks in China might have you beat. On a recent visit to the country, UK Prime Minister David Cameron set up a profile on a social media site in order to answer questions. And he was asked about Sherlock. Specifically, he was asked to tell the crew to hurry up because they take too long between seasons. Amazing. In case you were wondering, he answered.

There And Back Again

Bilbo and the Great Flipping Off Everything in Middle Earth Adventure

Bilbo’s known to be a pretty mild mannered guy. I mean, it takes several hours of uninvited dwarven partying for him to even attempt to express disapproval of what’s going on in his house. But we all know what happens when more than a dozen strangers agree to travel across Middle Earth together while being filmed, and find out what happens when hobbits stop being polite… and start getting a bit cross.
