So, slight fangirl problem.
I got Sherlock
Series 3 on DVD last week and really, it's taken me a while to work up the courage to sit down and watch it properly. Such a wuss. I don't know, Series 3 really took me, emotionally, to the cleaners. I'm considering maybe watching Series 1 again because of the nostalgia. But, I bucked up tonight with a glass of Appletiser and decided to break it in. Honestly, I need to grow up bit. Anyway, His Last Vow is playing in front of me as I type.
Last night, I fell asleep in front of Young Sherlock Holmes
(when I woke up, it took me an embarrassingly long time to come around and I had to crack open a bag of Minstrels to help me out). Really, my basic reaction was TGINC: Thank God It's Not Canon. I know it's not anyway and I know it's just a version of, just another piece of speculation and maybe I'm just judging it by BC!Sherlock standards, but...yeah. Need to delete that from the Sky Box.
And have you ever had one of those days where you have a fangirl conversation with someone who just completely 'gets it'? I got on a Robbie the Reindeer
kick this week (an Aardman-style cartoon with an impressive voice-cast) partly because I remembered it from when I was a kid, partly because Ardal O'Hanlon was the voice of Robbie and I'm also a Father Ted
fan - although I only found that out recently. So I recorded Hooves of Fire and The Lost Tribe on the Sky Box because for whatever reason they were on at two o'clock in the morning and I was up watching it by six.
When I was at volunteering later on in the day, a girl I knew from school and Uni came in with her partner and while she was choosing clothes we were chatting. When I mentioned I was tired because I'd been up early watching Robbie the Reindeer,
I expected a typically mystified reaction but she grinned and said 'Ardal O'Hanlon?' and then added she was also a Father Ted
fan. Cue a high-five. :D Yippee.
I watched the League of Gentlemen
last night and had to switch off after about ten minutes. Sorry, beautifully acted, beautifully written, but the humour... yeah. Not for me. ( Also, grumpy old fangirl time ala the Hobbit (spoilers) )
