Morning Coffee (10/15/10)

Morning Coffee

Good morning! Friday! Finally! We're in the middle of a Nor'easter here, but I feel cheated because there isn't any snow. Boo.

The new Sherlock starts on PBS on the 24th, and NPR has a great interview with the co-creator and lead actor here.

Planet Money bought gold, and their story about it is surprisingly interesting.

More scripts have been ordered for a bunch of shows, including No Ordinary Family, Off the Map, Brothers and Sisters, and Life Unexpected.

Neil Patrick Harris is continuing his quest for world domination by directing a movie, and really, I'm okay with that.

The GIF Renaissance

Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke may be directing a Romeo and Juliet series for ABC and . . . I don't know, write your own joke. It's too easy. Two semi-serious things, though: 1) I would not be opposed to seeing Renaissance Verona on my TV every week and 2) how do you make a series out of something in which the main characters die pretty quickly? Like after a few days/weeks, right? What is this going to be, the 24 version of Romeo and Juliet?

The wristwatch is declining? Really? Huh. I feel utterly disoriented when I'm not wearing mine.

"Samuel Jackson," "the CW," and "Sherlock Holmes" are not entities I would usually put in the same sentence. And yet, this seems to be happening. I am baffled but intrigued.

Yes. People are intrigued and fascinated by my watch. I just don't like having to pull my phone out all the time, especially now that I have to worry about being on time for classes and stuff (not that wearing a watch actually helps me be more punctual). I LOVE my watch, though - it's pretty unusual :)

The new Sherlock is really fantastic. Probably in part because it's written by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who genius) & stars Benedict Cumberbatch who is *brilliant* as Sherlock.

I really hope you enjoy it!

1. I haven't worn a wristwatch in five months, but I still look at my wrist for the time.

2. I love the name Benedict Cumberbatch. (The new Sherlock.)

3. I would like to register a complaint about a shocking lack of Dewey pictures lately.

Funny, I bought a wristwatch today, not having one was making me crazy. (I could've just replaced the battery but.....)

I barely watched anything this week. Nikita, but it was a repeat. Boooo. NCIS & NCIS LA. Hopefully CSI NY tonight but what I should really do is go to sleep.
