    Sherlock

    I loved watching the scenarios of how he survived. I also love watching John beat Him up. And I guess I am in the minority because I liked the moustache. Why oh why only 3 episodes per season??

    I would say because of the actors' busy schedules, no to mention Moffatts, but it's been three episodes since the beginning so I don't know. :/

    Downton:
    Tom & Mary? No. Tom & Rose? Yes.

    Call the Midwife started again last night in the UK. I think it starts in the US at the end of March. I think viewers are going to be happy with Chummy's story in episode 1 as I know we were all wondering what was going to become of her now that she was married and a mom. Or mum, rather.

    Let me get this straight. When the new man proposed to Mary he explained to her that he could break off his relationship with his present "ALMOST" fiance as long as he got immediately engaged to Mary, but he couldn't just break if off with the "almost" fiance to do nothing and not have any prospect. Is that right? Sounds odd to me. It seems that breaking it off with the other lady would be MORE insulting if he ran into the arms of another woman rather than did nothing for awhile. Hmmmm....

    I did a sigh of relief though. The guy dodged a bullet. I don't care for Mary. I think he could do much better.

    I'm an Edith fan myself and agree with Edith's aunt. She is playing with fire. She doesn't seem to understand that he can't marry her no matter how much he wants. Have they ever actually shown the man's wife? Is she in a hospital?

    Good-bye and good riddance, Edna.

    Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.

    I actually liked Barrow last night when he was smiling at Edna and telling her what he thought of her. For just that one scene. Now it's back to wanting to take a shower after he's been on the screen, because he's so slimy.

    We all knew Edna would get her comeuppance eventually. I was glad it happened sooner rather than later. That Mrs. Hughes was the one to give her the boot made it even sweeter.

    Speaking of Mrs. Hughes . . . who knew this was under the make-up and uniform?

    I did, but only because I've seen pics of her at awards shows and interviews. The entire cast looks pretty different in their "civvies."

    I think Gillingham has to marry soon or something happens to his inheritance. I thought I remembered him mentioning something like that, but I can't remember when.

    I knew, but that was just from watching the cast when they are interviewed on other shows. I WAS surprised the first time I saw her and a few of the other downstairs women, too.
