Jimmy Fallon’s Mad Lib Theater with Benedict Cumberbatch

It’s official. There is nothing Benedict Cumberbatch cannot do. After seeing the star of Sherlock and Doctor Strange this past week on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, I am convinced that the party word game, Mad Libs, was invented in 1953 by Leonard Stern and Roger Price with Benedict Cumberbatch in mind. Days ahead of his Saturday Night Live hosting gig last night, the Sherlock star […]

Doctor Strange/Sherlock/Smaug/Khan to host SNL on November 5

The beauty of ‘Sherlock’ is all in the framing

Today’s word of the day from Radio Times and the world’s consulting detective is symmetry. It’s a tricky word, boys and girls, when it comes to film and television.

British flag flies high, once again, at the Emmys

While a majority of Planet Earth is still saddened by the fact that Downton Abbey closed its doors after six brilliant series this past year, one has to wonder if much of the television industry is secretly a bit happier to see it shutter, especially after last night’s Emmy Awards.
