Definitely BBC's Sherlock! Fun, refreshing, great cast, great modernisation, massive fandom overnight, left me wanting much more (...evil cliffhangers have a tendency to do that)

Not that I've watched an awful lot of live television this year; I've mostly made good use of my DVD box sets.

I've lots of other things I ought to post, such as a Deathly Hallows review and my long squee-post about Hustle, but for now I'll make do with a TV-meme, taken from [livejournal.com profile] girlofjuly

Five TV-fandoms (in random order):
1. Hustle
2. Star Trek; The Original Series (ST;TOS)
3. Torchwood
4. Sherlock
5. Charmed

The Sherlock Holmes novels A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four and The Hound of the Baskervilles have been released as graphic novels. I've never quite learned to appreciate that type of media, and I have no intention of buying SIGN and HOUN, but I bought STUD while browsing at Blackwell's during my last trip to London.

Though I as a rule don't like graphic novels, STUD is the one I've enjoyed the most so far (out of...five attempts, I believe). The character designs had little in common with my mental images (What's up with Gregson's nose?!), but for once I didn't find this overly distracting. I like the artist's use of colour, and the story was well told (that includes the second half of the novel). However, for me the biggest stand-out was the utterly GLORIOUS Lestrade!

He is my favourite minor character in canon, and his tiny moment of glory in A Study in Scarlet (the novel, that is) never fails to make me grin. The rendition of this scene in the graphic novel is almost perfect, so I scanned and uploaded a couple of pages to share with you. Take a look beneath the cut! They are full size scans though, just to warn you, but I'm pretty sure they won't break your layout.

Bring him down! BRING HIM DOWN! )

Also, notice Watson's exhaustion at the end, and Holmes' amusing expression in the third panel:)

I should perhaps crosspost this to [livejournal.com profile] dilestrade at some point...but definitely not at 5 am. BED!

This was not how I intended to end my unannounced LJ-posting-hiatus, but I just have to say this:

BBC's Sherlock. Episode 3. "The Great Game".

BEST. EFFING. EPISODE. EVER!

Episode 1 was really good. Episode 2 was good enough, bit of a disappointment though. Episode 3 is the greatest thing I've ever seen.

Seriously, that was EPIC! How could they leave it there!?!?!

I'm annoyed by LJ's new welcoming page/"home". They've removed the only textbox I found useful, and added new ones I know I'll never use! As far as I know that page can't be customised either:(

I'm clearing up my backlog containing things I intended to post, so here are my books and movies of January 2010 and a Les Mis meme. Sherlock Holmes really needs its own post as well...
