The Cultured Shark

  I’m not sure what is it about this picture that makes me laugh and smile a little on the inside. The internet turns up some real gems every now and then.

Did You Miss Me?

Remember what I said during my recent Sherlock spoiler discussion? Remember what I said about Moriarty being dead and “in no way returning in the foreseeable future”?   Yeah, I was wrong. Series review to follow.

BBC’s Sherlock: How He Faked His Death (SPOILERS)

On the 15th January 2012 audiences of BBC’s ‘Sherlock’ were left with an almighty cliffhanger and head-scratcher when their titular protagonist (remember: “heroes don’t exist”) threw himself from the roof of St. Bart’s hospital in London and ‘seemingly’ plummeted to his death after ‘seemingly’ being defeated by his nemesis James Moriarty.

The Punic Wars
