Congrats to Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who won the Emmy for best lead actor and best supporting actor in a miniseries or movie for their roles as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson in BBC’s “Sherlock.” The show’s creator Steven Moffat also took the Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special for “Sherlock: His Last Vow.”

Busy as a bee

Ah, it’s been one of those crazy busy weeks at work and on the home front, juggling and trying to stay afloat (and mixing metaphors in the process!).

Oh yeah, and I’ve discovered “True Detective,” and have been a veritable junkie, huffing episode after episode.

I’m reminded today that I may need to employ the Sherlock method of memory to keep my checklists in check and my to-dos done. Happy Tuesday!

18 times Benedict Cumberbatch looked like an absolute GOD in a suit. I’m torn between #8 and #15.

OMG. Benedict Cumberbatch was on “Sesame Street” this week! So cute! And check out Murray-arty, his arch nemesis!

“Sherlock” Season 3 – The Musical

I’ve made no secret of my adoration for the BBC show “Sherlock.” If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for?!

In the meantime, for those who are caught up with Season 3, here’s a musical spoof that’s pretty spot on! (There are some *spoiler alerts* if you haven’t caught up, so watch at your own peril…)

Sherlock at the Golden Globes

Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender at the Golden Globes

For four months now, we’ve been blissfully without our cable TV. Who needs it?! Not me. But rarely, very rarely, there are those nagging moments in life where I do miss it – and Sunday was one of those days when I realized that the Golden Globes were on and I couldn’t just watch.

As it turned out, most of the highlights were online anyway, and I’ve flipped through plenty of red carpet fashion from the night and watched every bizarre speech. The best picture I’ve seen is the one above – Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender just grooving at the Golden Globes.

Which reminds me – I’ve got to go catch up on watching “Sherlock.” I’ve just started watching the third season and am hooked. Now I am going back to the first season to watch from the beginning. If you haven’t seen “Sherlock” yet, it’s on Netflix and Hulu and is well worth a watch!

What you didn’t see on NBC …

What did you think of the Olympic opening ceremony on Friday?

I loved it. I thought it was such an inspiring love letter both to the country of Great Britain and to the Olympic games themselves. Irreverent, cheekyl, thoughtful and moving, it was a joy to watch. I’m not a big sports watcher but I do love the spirit of the Olympics and am so happy that London is hosting!

I only wish that we could see the BBC’s full and commercial-free coverage. I wasn’t thrilled with NBC’s commercial breaks – or the fact that there were pieces that weren’t aired on American TV.

Thankfully YouTube has come to the rescue for some of what was missing!

Check out this smashing introduction featuring Benedict Cumberbatch (of “Sherlock” fame) that American audiences didn’t get to see, which kicked off the Olympic opening ceremony.
