Aside

sherlock holmes and the princess bride

when i need to decompress, zone out, and fall asleep, i have a tendency to watch familiar, i-can-recite-by-heart movies or TV shows to help. just enough distraction to close down my other thoughts, not gripping enough to keep me awake.

the ‘sherlock‘ TV series has joined these ranks. the more i watch ‘a study in pink‘ (if i stay awake to the near-end)  the more i have to ask whether i, during the scene of selecting the good or bad bottle, could have resisted making the cab driver a sicilian (or making another princess bride reference).

props to the screenwriters on avoiding the temptation.
