How to Get Drunk and Solve Crimes: A Lesson From BBC's Sherlock

Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Sherlock BBC

While you suckers were watching Downton Abbey yesterday, the rest of us cool kids were watching the second episode of Sherlock's third season, also known as: the best episode of television since the beginning of media.

Yes, during "The Sign of Three" Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) told Watson (Martin Freeman) many times that he loved him and cared about him. Sure, we got to see Sherlock pirouette, write a waltz for John and give a very moving and off best man's speech, but the real highlight of the episode involved Sherlock and Watson drunk and trying to solve a crime. And it was the best. thing. ever. Fan fiction writers couldn't make this stuff up. Well, they probably could but the Sherlock writers did just fine.

Also, Sherlock director Colm McCarthy said on Twitter that there was so much more footage of drunk Sherlock and drunk Watson, but it had to be cut for time. This is the very reason why they make DVD extras!
