Sherlock series four ended over the weekend, and maybe the whole show ended, too, as there is no guarantee of a return any time soon. Sherlock has always been a series of long hiatuses, but as its stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, have gotten more and more famous, it has clearly become more difficult to include the show in their schedules. Full Story

Sherlock Season 4, Episode 3 recap SPOILERS After a middle episode that introduced a completely unjustified third Holmes sibling, Sherlock series four concludes with whack-a-mole plot and a wholly unnecessary retconning of the entire Moriarty arc of the first two—and still best—seasons. Full Story

MAYBE SPOILERS DEPENDING ON SENSITIVITY On New Year’s Day the BBC and PBS finally got their sh*t together and aired Sherlock at the same time, instead of making the US wait weeks for it, which is dumb and pointless in this day and age. It’s the one-off, Victorian-set holiday special—even though it really doesn’t have anything to do with the holidays—titled “The Abominable Bride”, and it’s meant to hold us over until series four airs sometime in twenty-whenever Benedict Cumberbatch has the time. Full Story

Yesterday Marvel announced yet another person to add to the pile of people already appearing in Captain America: Civil War, and it’s Sherlock star Martin Freeman in an undisclosed role. Everyone’s making dog pile jokes and wondering how there could possibly be any time for Captain America with so many co-stars, but let’s be real. Full Story

It’s about three months until Sherlock returns on the BBC and/or we all pirate it—no use pretending any of us are actually going to wait till it airs on PBS in twenty-motherf*cking-fourteen—and we have our first teaser. It’s a totally uninformative glimpse of Sherlock playing peek-a-boo with all the main characters and I love it. Full Story

There. I said something nice about re: appearance and Benedict Cumberbatch. He does wear an overcoat very well. Here he is with Martin Freeman in London working on Sherlock. Timely too because this morning I read a headline on Deadline with the following title: Sherlock Producer Pleads With Fans To Keep London Filming Locations Secret I guess the Sherlock faithful are going Twi-Hard on the set and they’re now worried about plot spoilers. Full Story

Peter Jackson’s return to Middle Earth, this time focusing on Frodo’s uncle Bilbo undertaking his own adventure as a young man, is good enough, but “good enough” feels like an indictment when the original LOTR trilogy ranged from “very good” to “extraordinary”. Full Story

The Hobbit now has less singing, more action

The first trailer for Peter Jackson’s return to Middle Earth was a little underwhelming. It looked pretty much exactly like Fellowship of the Ring and it had some dude (do not ask me to differentiate the people playing dwarves—can’t do it) singing a depressing dirge. But the second trailer is much, much more indicative of what The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be, and that is: funnier, lighter, and more free-spirited than The Lord of the Rings. Full Story
