The time between Sherlock seasons generally ensures that each installment will go big, and few gut punches hit like the major death in the climax of Season 4 premiere “The Six Thatchers.” Once the shock wears off, showrunner Steven Moffat has an explanation for why the show needed to spell out something the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novels never did.
Nice as it was to have Sherlock reintroduce us to Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s dynamic in a classic era, the stealth prequel couldn’t help whet appetites for Moriarty’s apparent return in Season 4. Sadly, we’ll have to wait longer than ever to catch up with Sherlock and Watson in the modern day, as PBS says Season 4 is at least a year out.
The 2014 Emmy nominations have been released! The show airs on Aug. 25 on NBC, but whether the following actors listed below win an actual Emmy that night doesn't matter to me.
I am giving out my own Emmy Awards to the following:
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
Kevin Spacey, "House of Cards"
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series
Kerry Washington, "Scandal"
