Okay. It’s official. I am OBSESSED with Sherlock Holmes–the old Arthur Conan Doyle stories, the Robert Downey Jr. movies, the BBC show set in modern times…

I LOVE IT ALL.

I have been so fascinated by this character in every depiction of him! Anyone else have a character like that? I’m one of those people who likes seeing what people will do with an old beloved character and so far, each film adaptation (in my opinion) mentioned above has brought something unique and interesting to the table.

I love how meticulous, calculated, somewhat cold, and aloof Sherlock is. His sense of deduction and logic is staggering…but think of it this way…Conan Doyle wrote Sherlock. How did a brilliant character like that come from someone’s mind!? AHHH!

Which literature//movie//tv character are you obsessed with? Why do you like them? SHARE!

Random Geekery: Sherlock Holmes

  • I love Sherlock, too! But I’m also quite obsessed with Robin Hood!

    • Haha! I haven’t checked out Robin Hood, yet, but it’s on my list of “To Watch”. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Lily! Always a pleasure to have a visit from a Middle-Earther. 😉

  • I love reading your blog; I find we have much in common!

    I would actually advise skipping the recent Robin Hood movie, but I enjoyed the 2006 televisions series, as well as the older series with Richard Greene. My favorite film version is The Story of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men with Richard Todd. Of course, there are the staples like the Disney animated version and the Errol Flynn film.

    Anyway, my two cents! Can you tell I’m obsessed?

    • Awww, you’re sweet! I love reading Middle-Earth News! I’m so thrilled to have a visitor with whom I share so many interests! I was always a big Robin Hood fan, too. I even liked that Kevin Costner version *(ducks in case things are thrown my way)*. I liked the Eroll Flynn version as a kid and the Disney cartoon as well. I need to check out the series you mentioned. It’s on my Netflix instant queue, but I haven’t checked into it yet. My husband and I have several shows going at the moment, so I’ve got to wait until some TV time frees up, LOL.

  • Oh man, I loved the Kevin Costner music when it came out, too! I even learned to play “Everything I Do, I Do It For You” on the piano.

    I know what you mean about several shows going! We’ve got to have something to sustain us until Sherlock, Season 3!

    • I know! I’m about to finish Season 1 and I’m like AHHH! What will I do once I finish season 2!!?
