If you are talking about the current BBC version of Sherlock, then it's the first time for ages that the actor has been able to use his real accent.

He's from the Republic of Ireland.

That was my reaction too. Did you get a resonance with Pulp Fiction? Maybe it's just the interlocking stories vibe...

Anyway, I'm currently on a quest to watch the whole of the Supernatural series - half way through season one now - it's a bit 'monster of the week' so far but I have hopes it'll improve.

- and also looking for all the Sidney Greenstreet/Peter Lorre collaborations - Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon go without saying, of course, but I want to see the other 6 movies they appeared in together, got Background to Danger so far, looking for Passage to Marseilles.

I know what you mean, but I think it was the comic book style that was so well done and different that really appealed. The sort "Behind the scenes" special on the DVD was fascinating as it featured the original comic book artist, Frank Miller and his thoughts on the way the comics had been brought to life and how pleased he was with the results.

It's very violent, but in a way, it feels like comic book violence - almost so over the top that it doesn't count - if you know what I mean. :)

Moriarty from the recent film version is also Irish :D

Thanks for the link but, shiver me timbers, I wouldn't buy it - half the fun is seeking and finding for free download somewhere on the net ;)

Tonyblack wrote:Crys, there really are only three episodes, but the double DVD contained the pilot episode, which was never shown on TV. A Study in Pink is actually a remake of that pilot.

My DVDs certainly have English subtitles because when we tried to watch it PBS in America, Sharlene had difficulty in understanding what they were saying, so when I bought the DVDs I checked that they had subtitles and have watched them with those subtitles.

I've checked again, to be sure, and there is no mention whatsoever to any subtitles. I can't understand why they didn't put them in, why do they do these things? It's the only British series I've ever seen in a store, and it doesn't have the english subtitles! Disappointed..

As I'm a bit of a martial arts geek i've just watched these (I have to say I have seen some of them more than once)

Rush Hour 3 (hilarious)
Forbidden Kingdom
Kill Zone (Donnie Yen)
Ip Man 1 and 2 (This is because they are class and I do practice Foshan Wing Chun)
Kung Fu Panda (well why not and my daughter loves it)
No. I don't imagine anyone west of Bree would have much interest in "adventures."

Nasty.... Disturbing... Uncomfortable things......................Make you late for dinner.
