top 5 reasons why you should watch Sherlock:

today, i'm here to give you the top 5 reasons you should take a day and watch Sherlock:

1) its a British t.v. show, airing on BBC (where, Doctor Who also airs. clearly, they have impeccable taste in what types of shows to air on their channel. in addition to that, Steven Moffat who writes, let's be honest, some of the best Doctor Who episodes, also co-writes Sherlock). British t.v. shows = British actors which =s British men. aka, the best kind of men. (yes, that's a legitimate reason)

2) each season (there are 2 so far) only has 3 episodes. but they are intricate, long, exciting, quick paced episodes. this means, you can sit down and watch them basically all in one day. if its a Saturday. but it still is an investment of emotion which, let's be honest, is why we all get addicted to the shows we do, correct? - by the season finale of season one (aka, the third episode) i was going, "whaaaaaa? i want moooooore!"

3) its based on Arther Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes (duh) and the Sherlock in this adaptation is just as witty and clever as ever. -- i love the twist BBC has put on it by setting the series in modern day. same Sherlock, same Watson, same 221 B Baker Street, different time period. love.

4) Martin Freeman. not reason enough? eff you, he won a BAFTA.

5) B-E-N-E-D-I-C-T  C-U-M-B-E-R-B-A-T-C-H. (and here is where i go into my sub-reasons) a) um, he has the absolute best name in the entire universe. don't you want to watch it just to see who the heck Benedict Cumberbatch is? b) he is the perfect Sherlock. his portrayal is probably my favorite portrayal of Sherlock (sorry RDJ) c) he's British (again, a legitimate reason). d) he's up and coming, guys. he was in The Atonement and The Other Boleyn Girl but he also just did Tinker Tailor Solider Spy and War Horse annnnd he's in the next Star Trek film that's coming out. you'll thank me later when you're sitting in the theatre going 'hey! i know who that guy is!'.

there you go. 5 reasons to watch one of the most spectacular shows ev-er. i bet you want to go watch it right now, don't you? go do it. you can thank me later.

LOVE Sherlock! Definitely a must-watch show, people, trust me on this! Also, at the risk of sounding like a mouthy know-it-all, it's Benedict Cumberbatch, not Cumberpatch ;)
