This week I have a half-dozen writing projects at all different phases of completion. So what will I spend my evenings doing? Well, it’s elementary…since PBS is rebroadcasting the Sherlock series this week on one of their digital channels–and I get to feast on double servings of the fabulous episodes the next few nights.
Yes, I know there’s some kind of party going on in Cleveland, with the planners there ready to offer me a front row seat to the festivities while the event plays out in prime time on the main PBS station. But really, I just prefer switching to digital channel two and follow along behind Benedict Cumberbatch as he so beautifully resolves crimes that he’s already shared the answers to before. I don’t watch a lot of television series reruns but Sherlock is one I cannot resist.
And I hear there’s another big party coming to Philly soon for the opposing team to the current festivities. Think I might send off an email to PBS and suggest they run another Masterpiece Marathon featuring Inspector Lewis that week, or maybe bring back The Bletchley Circle. They probably don’t need my input though. I can’t think of a Masterpiece show–especially those with the Masterpiece Mystery label–that isn’t a winner.
Makes me almost wish we had more than two political parties, so I could look forward to more weeks of Masterpiece marathons. In the meantime, this week I’ll be the one in the comfy chair watching every move Sherlock & Watson make, and reveling in every line of evidence and banter. Enjoy!
What’s your favorite “gotta watch it” marathon show?
