Anyone want a glimpse of his wonderful Sherlock? Watch the first 1:50. This is what I like about this show, it's lovely moments like these.

Ironically this reminds me of my brother. Well written scene/character by the writer indeed. Reality isn't far away from this. Is he a drug user throughout the series?

In this series he's a recovering addict. I'm not sure about other versions but I believe the original story he is a recreational user.

In the original he's not exactly a recreational user, since he goes on uncontrollable binges when he hasn't got a case. He's using dependently, just not continuously. Jonny Lee Miller I loved him in Mansfield Park. My local theater is doing a rebroadcast of Frankenstein with him and Benedict Cumberbatch this winter!

Ah thanks, I haven't read the original so I wasn't sure. I knew he wasn't really and addict but did use so my choice of "recreational" probably wasn't correct.

I really want to see those but I keep missing them! Have you seen either yet? And if so which cast do you prefer? I hear JLM as Frankenstein and BC as the creature is the better one.

I haven't seen it yet, but I hear that the creature is the juicier role that each of them preferred to play. I think when they rebroadcast it will be with Benedict as the creature, since he's the one that most people are paying to see. I like JLM and all, but even apart from his inexplicable charm Benedict Cumberbatch is a very seriously gifted actor. Sherlock is a great role but it really hardly touches on what he is able to do. I'm really looking forward to seeing Frankenstein and his newer stuff. The trailer for Fifth Estate was almost surreal.

Meant to also mention, this scene is really fascinating too in that it pretty much directly explains why the writers decided to make this version of Sherlock an addict. When taking the original characters with their core personalities (of both Watson and Sherlock) and dropping them into this century, we need to take into account how the modern world is going to affect them. In this scene we have Sherlock, with his brilliant mind, actually realizing this about himself. He almost seems to realize somewhere deep down, that something is off, that if only he were born a little earlier in a less "amplified" time, maybe he wouldn't have become an addict. Of course, we the audience know he is in the wrong time. It's quite brilliant actually!

I've seen a lot of them, and I really need to watch The Avengers, as I haven't yet... I do own it, I just haven't watched it.

I haven't seen The Amazing Spider-Man, or Captain America yet. I know I should, but for some reason I can't bring myself to watch CA.

I know why I haven't watched Spider-Man: I am a big fan of the Tobey Maguire version of the character.


I'm sorry. I didn't mean to ramble.

New addictions can be fun

I do however watch Elementary with Jonny Lee Miller It's the first version of Sherlock I've ever enjoyed.
Doctor Who is fun. Wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey!
Sherlock is fun too, but I just enjoy British mystery shows like that...

 
Pineapple Bumbershoot! I love it!

I keep meaning to watch this, and I keep forgetting. But, I love Jonny. He is an amazing actor: Mansfield Park was awesome, Dracula 2000 was awesome, and according to my brother, Plunkett & Maclean was awesome... etc, etc.

I don't know about that last movie, though. I've never seen it.



I'm sorry for talking so much. I have a cold from hell, and it tends to make me babble.

No worries, I hope you feel better soon. Try chicken soup?

I need to seek out more JLM to watch because although I have loved him since Trainspotting I haven't seen a whole lot of him.

The reviews are mixed on Capt. A. The movie itself is a bit on the cheesy side. Chris Evans is great and there's a lot of good stuff. It isn't that bad really. Hugo Weaving as the villain is pretty hilarious though. I mean it's Hugo Weaving tho so ya gotta love him anyway.

Elementary is AWESOME! The only Sherlock Series I can watch throughout, actually. Love it!



I have the day off, all Marvel movies on my external HDD, can link my laptop to the tv.... I smell a plan.

Isn't it great? I was pretty disinterested to begin with because A. Had never been the biggest Lucy Liu fan and B. Had never liked the Sherlock story very much. In fact probably my favorite interpretations of Sherlock and Watson up until that point would be Data and Geordie on Star Trek TNG.

But I watched because of JLM, and was I ever pleasantly surprised. I really love LL now too.

And is it just me or is there a pretty glaring typo on this page from the new U2.com gift.

And really the writers// or sherlock is so right about it. Most druggies do it because they want to escape the pressure of society.Which seems to be building up these days, it is a weird time to live in , Especially if you would be from the past. Can not even imagine. But its scenes like this that make you go -Oh right.. that might be why my brother went to use that stuff in the first place. purely running away and trying to live in your own bubble.

Thus for me its good acting and good writing. Makes you think and even understand a bit.
