    I never got into Black Books but since I love Bill Bailey and I really like Dylan Moran I should probably give it another go

    You've not seen Black Books I take it. That's Bernard waking up with a hangover.

    Not the most distinctive title -- but I assume you're referring to this one. Thanks for the warning!

    Sherlock Holmes disguises

    Hello, Sco0T -- welcome to Sherlock Forum! You posted your question in the General Sherlock Holmes Discussion area, so I assume you're asking about the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I must admit that I'm no expert on those, but I do know that there were several stories where he did disguise himself, and it was sort of a standard joke that Watson never recognized him. In fact, if some obnoxious fellow was annoying Watson, you could just about bet that it was actually Holmes. I can't offhand name a story where Holmes used more than one, but he sometimes used some very elaborate disguises. One of the most complicated ones was in "The Empty House," where he came to Baker Street disguised as a hunchbacked old book seller. Watson still thought that Holmes had died in the waterfall at Reichenbach some years earlier, so when Holmes took off the disguise, Watson was so surprised that he fainted! There are several forum members who know a lot more about the original stories than I do, so you'll presumably get a far better answer to your actual question.

    Oscars 2019

    Sounds interesting, Carol. Indiana had to be a tad more welcoming than the Deep South, if only just. Even in places as theoretically progressive as New York City, African-American performers were not allowed to dine in or stay at the deluxe supper clubs and hotels where they were the marquee-billed talent. They weren't even allowed to use the front entrance, but had to sneak in and out of a service door like criminals. Ironic, no? My mother relates the time, as a young-20something office girl in the late 1950s, going to Florida with some friends from work, and how they were absolutely mortified when a white bus driver ordered some black passengers to get up and move to the back so the white tourists could sit down. They tried to demur, insisting they were absolutely fine to sit anywhere, but the driver wouldn't move the bus until the black passengers complied. My mother and her friends all hailed from a tiny Michigan town and they had not seen segregation in action because there were no black people there. Their eyes were opened.

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    I've read the novel American Gods but haven't watched the series. If I recall he wrote it after moving to the US. It's a good novel but not his best. The idea behind American gods is that they are brought to America by immigrants that worship them and gods that have been created in the mean time in America.

    Recently watched movies

    Life. A dreadfully lazy homage to Alien and other sci-fi horror films. Never truly engaging and never building in any sort of tension. Utterly predictable and the only people I could see enjoying this film are people that love overly graphic scenes of violence. I'm not one of them.

    But Gaiman is English, isn't he? Odd that he wouldn't write about English Gods. OK, looked him up, and he now lives in the US, so maybe that explains it.

    I’ve been trying out “American Gods”, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. So weird... I never read the novel, but I know a lot of mythology, so seeing their little twists on things has been the most fun so far.
