I'm watching The Musketeers, purely for shallow reasons of sword-fighting and Capaldi and OMG CAPALDI. Turns out he is basically the RICHELIEU OF MY HEART except a bit more evil. But he is properly loyal to France and his foreign policy of making France the pre-eminent European power is there and also he is Capaldi and brilliant. Mostly my opinion of things three-musketeer-y rests on what they do with Richelieu. The recent steampunk film version (which I ADORE MADLY) still managed to score points by remembering he used to be a soldier, though mostly the love there is earned with the ridiculous and their fabulous version of Milady and OMG ORLANDO BLOOM'S BUCKINGHAM. Best. Buckingham. Ever.

ALso started Sleepy Hollow. I am like three episodes in and got spoiled for the finale a bit. Only pre-credits BUT STILL. On the other hand, the lolariousness of it is making me try to get a move on. IT IS V GOOD.

Made it to end of first season of Elementary and that was BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT and I love how should they not have got another season it could have ended there and been a wonderful, lovely thing. BUT THERE IS MORE THANK GOODNESS YAY. It is better than Sherlock, but I still quite love Sherlock and this year's was winning as Sherlock develops some empathy and sense of justice. And then I was sad because the only good Moriarty is Trek Moriarty (ooh, and Elementary now! Well done, Elementary. I forgot I basically always hate Moriarty characters when I was watching cause omg AWESOMENESS)

I am aware there is now a Scottish Doctor.
