    Those cats are... unsettling.

    I've had a gmail account from almost the first day they started offering it. However, I don't stay logged in to google. I check my mail and log out. I also use the duckduckgo search engine that doesn't track anything.

    Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes

    Yes, Rowe was a wonderful Holmes. I thought that it was a very good idea to use Rowe for that.

    Introverts, how is your day?

    Was this his sister that died? If it is then you need to be very considerate of his feelings. If he's getting on your nerves then you might consider doing a couple of activities that he really enjoys to help him forget his sorrows for a little while. Perhaps he'll take a greater interest in that activity and you'll get more time for yourself.

    Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes

    Like many people of a certain age, Rathbone was my first Holmes and his features are indelibly linked in my mind as the 'true' Sherlock Holmes. As a kid, it was my mum that loved Sherlock Holmes (indeed all mysteries) and whenever one of his films was on the telly you couldn't get a look in. Fortunately for me, I was enamoured with Holmes right from the start. While Rathbone is the 'look' of Holmes, it is Brett that embodies the character the best to me. I'm not sure if it was Brett that inhabited Holmes or the other way round. In either case, Brett is probably the best canon Holmes we'll see for some time to come.

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    Yes, documentaries or docu-dramas. Straight dramas I can take on a case by case basis.

    Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes

    This didn't get a mention in The Guardian or The Times. That's just wrong. Am I going to have to resort to the Mail now? 😱

    I love Sherlock Holmes and good mystery programmes, however, I don't like true crime stories. Knowing that it's real puts me right off.

    Actually, the reference pre-dates Harry Potter. It's a line from one of my favourite Rowan Atkinson programmes Thin Blue Line. I am a huge fan of Atkinson and that line always stuck with me. Chocolate frogs made by Cadbury were around long before Harry Potter. I found the scene here and you can see the frog in question.

    The WTF Thread

    I know for a fact that some vaccinations cause problems but this is true of any medication. A small percentage will always have side effects. It's unfortunate, however the good for all is worth the risk I believe. Anti-vax people should go around with hats saying "Let's Make Polio Great Again!" When I was at school we had our jabs at school and if we missed the day then we had to provide proof that we got them from a doctor. I think my mum may even still have my vaccination card. As for flat-earthers, morons one and all.

    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    Good for you for teaching your kids a second language. I speak three, my Latin is fair, and my Greek is... well not great to be honest. Learning languages, any languages, open doors. How does one go about looking foreign?

    You really should. Bailey is a brilliant foil to Moran.

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

    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.
