The Hillywood Show’s ‘Sherlock’ Parody is Pretty Great

For a show that’s only aired a grand total of ten episodes in three seasons, British detective drama Sherlock sure has spawned a great deal of internet lore, including some of the best fan videos around.

The latest entry into the Sherlock video hall of fame is from the popular YouTube duo  The Hillywood Show, and it just might be the greatest one yet. 

A Five Item Wishlist for 'Poldark' Season 2

The second season of popular period drama Poldark is almost upon us, so it’s time to start getting ready dive back in to a world that’s positively bursting with tricorner hats, beautiful Cornish countryside, and smoldering romantic heroes (hello there, Aidan Turner).

Season 2 will pick up right where the first season of Poldark left off, which means that Ross Poldark has been arrested for murder, Demelza is still mourning the loss of their child, Elizabeth is fending off the advances of creepy George Warleggan, and Francis is still the worst person in the world. Oh, and the Poldark family mine is broke.

There’s a lot to cover in the new episodes, so let’s narrow it down to a few broader topics that Poldark really should make a point to get in to in Season 2.

While we all know that Sherlock Season 4 is coming soon, sometimes it feels like that “coming soon” is roughly the equivalent of, say, the earth crashing into the sun. We all know it’s going to happen, but the actual arrival of said event feels as though it will likely occur in a distant future, one that seems hard to properly imagine at present.  

(Sorry, just going a tiny bit crazy from waiting over here.)

Anyway, as the clock ticks down to 2017, we’ve gotten a few tidbits to keep our Sherlock dreams alive. We know that filming on the latest block of episodes has been completed. There’s an exciting Season 4 trailer, filled with new footage that has spawned roughly 2,500 new questions about where the story is headed. The cast dropped some thematic hints at Comic Con. Sherlock apparently has a dog.

And now the first official photo of stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson has arrived. (Woohoo!)

The BBC has released the first teaser for the third season of psychological thriller The Fall, and it’s basically guaranteed to seriously stress you out.

The crime drama stars Gillian Anderson as Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson, on the hunt for uber-creepy serial killer Paul Spector, a normal-seeming married man who secretly stalks and murders successful, young professional women.  Spector is played by 50 Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan, and is basically terrifying.
