Sherlock Holmes

  1. How To Get Your Partner To Call You “Sherlock” In The Bedroom

    You’re never going to come home and find Sherlock and John sneaking a quickie in your bed.  I’ve tried to come to terms with this, and I have to say, it really isn’t going well. But it’s okay, because I have perfected a plan to get you the next best thing. Well no, not Benedict and Martin sneaking a quickie in your bed while roleplaying Sherlock and John. The next next best thing. Well, maybe not the next next best thing, but, like, a reasonable compromise.

  5. First Clip Of Ian McKellen’s Retired Elderly Sherlock In Mr Holmes, Sadly Devoid of Bees

    Not Ian Holm. That's a different guy.

    This clip, however, does contain the following: 1) Sherlock Holmes throwing shade at Watson's accounts of their detective work; 2) Sherlock Holmes being indirectly outsmarted by a woman, kind of; and 3) Ian McKellen being sassy to a tiny youngster while speaking in a raspy voice about not being able to remember stuff. It's every nerd's dream.

  16. Review: Season 2 of Elementary!

    Review

    This review contains spoilers for all of season two of CBS’s Elementary. Even as a fan of the show, I was not actually expecting the second season of Elementary and its finale to match what it had pulled off in Season 1—namely, because Natalie Dormer is now busy with Game of Thrones and really, Lucy Liu versus Natalie Dormer in a battle of hardcore ladies matching wits with millions of dollars, a global crime syndicate, and one man’s life in the balance? How were they going to top that? The writers still tried, bless their hearts. Which is why, even a week after the finale, I find myself confused at how they managed to underwhelm me even when I was expecting to be underwhelmed.

  17. Sherlock Is Much Funnier When Sherlock Sucks at Deduction

    I deduce that you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes and jokes.

    I guess Batman is the clear winner of the world's greatest detective title, because man is Sherlock terrible at deduction. At least, that's the idea behind this Pete Holmes Show sketch, in which Sherlock deduces a whole bunch of amazingly insightful things... that are also patently incorrect.

  18. In Praise of the Women of Elementary

    Elementary is unique among the many recent retellings of A.C. Doyle’s famous detective, for better or worse depending on your tastes, because it takes familiar characters and story elements and places them in a completely new or reimagined context. While playing it fast and loose with what’s familiar might alienate some, one thing this freedom does allow Elementary to do—and do well—is give us more interesting, fun, and complex female characters to revel in.

  19. Ready Your Fanfic, ‘Cause Sherlock Holmes Is Now In the Public Domain

    Great Scott!

    A judge has ruled that the vast majority of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories are now in the public domain in the US, which means (among other things) that you can make money off your Johnlock fic without Conan Doyle's heirs swooping down on you with blazing swords, ready to exact financial vengeance. It's go time.

  20. (Most of) Sherlock Holmes Is Now Officially Part of Public Domain in the U.S.

    Just don't say anything about Watson's second wife.

    You know that Sherlock Holmes fanfiction you've been writing in your spare time? (Don't lie to us, somebody out there is totally doing it). You might be able to publish it without being forced to search+replace all the names of the characters first, because the majority of the Holmes canon is definitely public domain, a judge recently ruled.
