Hi, everyone! I’m soo excited about today’s BBM because we have one of my latest obsessions… the protagonist of the TV show Sherlock, Sherlock Holmes (duh), played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
I had heard so many good things about this show and I have always loved Sherlock Holmes novels so the thought of watching it had been in my mind pretty much since it was released. But because I’ve been watching so many other shows and it is not a long show (only 3 episodes each season) I have postponed it until now. And man, I regret it.
It has been a while since I liked a TV show so much. For everyone out there who is a fan of Conan Doyle’s stories, please go and watch this extraordinary adaptation. I have even studied this in one of my lectures, on how the show has been able to adapt the XIX century detective into such a modern show.
Now, to the bad boy. Ok, for those of you who have watched it, I know Sherlock is not ‘bad’; we actually have a really ‘bad boy’ in the show: Sherlock’s nemesis, Moriarty (Andrew Scott), on which I will probably do another BBM :P. But let’s face it, Sherlock is not a typical goody-two-shoes hero. He is a cold, calculating, extremely cunning detective, with a remarkable mind, a photographic memory and poor social skills. And I guess that is what makes him (at least for me)so irresistible: he is as clever as it gets but not interested in women whatsoever .
So… yes, I declare myself completely in love with the character (it gets worse every episode xD) and I think Benedict Cumberbatch does an amazing job playing the part. Plus he has what has to be the sexiest voice on the planet!
