    Anybody watching that new Sherlock Holmes? I'm getting interested.

    BBC's A History of Horror. Brilliant.

    Yes, it was very good. Just finished watching the last episode about American horror from the late 60s through the 70s. Mark Gatiss is very likeable and knowledgeable, but carries an understated and calm manner throughout the entire series.

    The series by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss running it with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in it? Enjoyable. Very enjoyable.

    Anything with Martin Freeman deserves at least a try, is my feeling.

    Alright, the addition of Julia Stiles to /Dexter/ has made me about 5000% more interested in this season.

    To the point where I now retroactively fully support the 'fridging of Rita just to make room for her character. Would have been even better if we could have just skipped the whole marriage to Rita in the first place and just brought Julia Stiles in about Season 3 instead.

    She's just *such* a more compelling actress than, well, pretty much any white woman who has ever been on /Dexter/.

    Aside from the main theme, /Dexter/ also continues to impress me as a show that features Bechdel moments in more or less every episode, and just as an integral part of the plot.

    Despite the fact that I am a white man in my early 40s, I will find a way to work "drier than Harriet Tubman's vagina" into a conversation tomorrow.

    Has this been posted? I don't think it's been posted. If so, ignore me/it, with apple-ogies.

    By the way, did anyone see the recent South Park "Coon and friends" episode (pt 1 of 2) where BP (renamed DP) awakened the mighty Cthulhu?

    @Government Spy. I did. There were a couple of totally stupendous moments in that.
