- I have difficulty suppressing fangirlish giggles while watching Sherlock. Considering that I always watched it in my office PC, it is rather disadvantageous to my professional image.
- I surf those Sherlock-mania tumblr sites practically every day. The Final Problem gives the highest satisfaction so far.
- As a result of #2, now I smiled foolishly every time I saw a traffic cone. Which is often. I just realized that there are three traffic cones in the basement of my block in NUS.
- While we are discussing Sherlock, let me remind you that 4th May is recognized as the Reichenbach Day.
- I watched Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy just because someone is in it. Yesterday I watched the unaired pilot of Sherlock, and today I watched Hawking. I do not normally praise people lavishly, but Mr. Cumberbatch IS A GREAT ACTOR. In Hawking, in the scene where the young Hawking enthusiastically explained his brilliant idea by drawing in the pavement using a chalk, for a moment, I did not see the actor. Instead, I saw the laugh, the smile we often saw in photographs of Hawking. (On a separate note: Professor Hawking deserves a great amount of respect).
- I have always thought that Smaug is not a proper villain. Not intended as such, and does not come across as such. Now I am convinced. Smaug is not evil. How can he be, with such an adorable voice? And, oh, the dragon looks cute with the dark blue scarf.
- At least I am not alone in this embarrassing situation. It has been reported that a considerable number of intelligent, adult women all over the world is suffering from the Benedict Cumberbatch situation.
