What Have You Done Today To Make You Feel Proud?

Not much, particularly with regards to this blog, seeing how the last update was almost a month ago. But I did manage to find the time to check out Sherlock, which comes highly recommended by zooey. (Thank you!)

I just finished watching Season 1 all in one go and let me get this out of the way. SHERLOCK IS FREAKING BRILLIANT! Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are perfectly cast as the titular Sherlock and the trusty colleague/friend, respectively. After each episode, I was left speechless, head spinning, and jaw on the floor. The show is all around awesome, from the acting, writing, and directing to cinematography and music. It’s fast paced, well-acted and written (I always appreciate it when a show does not insult its viewers’ intelligent), with a dash of dark humor thrown in. And the ending of episode 3? This is how cliffhangers should be done, people. I am so looking forward to Season 2!

I’ve also been rewatching Miranda, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I started speaking in a faux British accent. Like the times when I binged on K-dramas, I’d answer questions with “ye” and “anio” instead of “yes” and “no” and people would give me quizzical looks. Now, if I do pick up the British thing, let’s hope that it’ll do me some good and make me more articulate and sharp.

Why Bother Walking When You Can Gallop


Miranda (Season 1, episode 3)

You guys, I’ve been missing out on some awesome television gold. That is, until I stumbled upon darkeyedwolf’s LJ yesterday and he/she was recommending Miranda, the BBC sitcom which began airing in 2009. (Thanks a bunch for plugging Miranda!) On a whim, I decided to check it out because 1) the episodes are all on YouTube, 2) situation comedy is one of my favorite genres, and 3) I like British humor. Now, I guess I should tell you that this was around 10 pm, which is not a good time to try out something that is potentially cracktastic, especially when one has school early in the morning the next day. To be honest, I did not expect to like Miranda this much, but a few minutes into the show and I was already LMAO! THIS TV SERIES, IT IS FRICKING HILARIOUS! And then, when the time was around 12:30 am, instead of going to bed like I should, I wanted moar and ended up not sleeping until close to 2 am.

I went to class today and guess what I did right after I got home from school? Yes, that’s right. I watched more of this delightful show.

If you haven’t seen Miranda, please check it out! Here’s a short clip to whet your appetite.

I love you, Miranda!
