Sometimes you just have to laugh at the things and people you love.

This Sherlock Honest Trailer really is something special. It’s not quite a howler like many of the other, more outrageous Screen Junkies works, and that’s okay. It’s… dare I say… a bit understated? Believe me, it takes the piss out of both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, both of whom have strange idiosyncrasies that, if I’m being honest, I’ve hardly noticed until this Honest Trailer pointed them out to me. That is what an Honest Trailer’s supposed to do, isn’t it?

Take, for example, the segment on Watson’s awkward running style. No, seriously, take it, because it’s killing me with how hilariously quirky it is. It’s something I’m never going to be able to unsee thanks to this trailer, and now, I get to share that with you.


You’re welcome.

Oh, and of course, there’s a pretty solid swipe at Elementary, the American-based CBS rival to Sherlock. Those two shows can’t ever seem to be talked about without a comparison to the other, huh?

If you’ll excuse me, I’m just going to go giggle some more at that Watson GIF.
