But lately, he's gotten dull and predictable, performing the same party trick over and over. The "smartest man in the room" is overexposed lately, and he needs a… » 12/22/14 5:37pm 12/22/14 5:37pm

TV And Film Still Don't Know How To Depict Texting (Or The Internet)

BBC's Sherlock does a pretty top-notch job of portraying text messages, but as Tony Zhou points out in the latest installment of Every Frame a Painting, cinematic representations of the digital world – including texting and the Internet – remain, for the most part, inefficient, ineffective, and uninspired. » 8/16/14 2:03pm 8/16/14 2:03pm

Here's That Sherlock Footage. It's Kind of Disappointing.

I sort of regret talking up this new footage from Sherlock season 3 yesterday, because with all said and done today there's not really that much to it. Still, a little Cumberbatch is better than no Cumberbatch at all, right? » 9/01/13 6:30pm 9/01/13 6:30pm
