If you're unfamiliar with the show, this is an update of the classic Sherlock Holmes character which finds the famous detective and his partner Watson solving crimes in modern day London (or wherever they happen to travel).
And as quality writing and characters I care about are essential to getting me to watch a show, it should come as no surprise that Sherlock is so well written that I never fail to scribble down lines from every episode, and it's so well acted that I now have a huge crush on both Benedict Cumberbatch (who, perhaps, has the greatest name of time) and Martin Freeman.
And if I don't get the third season soon, I just might cry.
Here are some of my favorite lines/exchanges from the first two seasons:
Sherlock: I'm not a psychopath, Anderson. I'm a high-functioning sociopath. Do your research.
Sherlock: Look at you lot. You're all so vacant. Is it nice not being me? It must be so relaxing.
Sherlock: Why have I got this blanket? They keep putting this blanket on me.
Lestrade: Yeah, it's for shock.
Sherlock: I'm not in shock.
Lestrade: Yeah, but some of the guys wanted to take photographs.
Sherlock: Punch me in the face.
Watson: Punch you?
Sherlock: Yes, punch me in the face. Didn't you hear me?
Watson: I always hear 'punch me in the face' when you're speaking, but it's usually subtext.
Watson: You're just showing off.
Sherlock: Well of course. I am a show off. It's what we do.
Sherlock: I may be on the side of angels, but don't for one second think that I'm one of them.
And last but not least, this video:
Happy Monday, all!
