I love Sherlock. If you haven't seen it, it's worth checking out. As said before, each episode is really like a movie, they're 90 minutes long. I just watched the finale of Season 2 (Season 3 just finished airing) the other night and it was brilliant.
On a different note, did anyone see the last episode of SNL? It was Seth Meyers' last episode, the first half and Weekend Update were hilarious, second half wasn't as good, but still a great episode overall. And
Imagine Dragons (who I really recommend, they're my favorite current artist other than Paul) gave two great performances was well.

 

SNL has been slightly better over the last few weeks. Meyers was that show's heart and soul (head writer, go-to guy to fix a sketch, responsible for a lot of Tina Fey's Sarah Palin material) and the current cast is well aware of that, so it'll be interesting to see who steps up with Meyers' departure. Ironically, had Bill Hader stuck it out, he'd be the natural "next in line," but since he's gone... maybe Killam? Vanessa Bayer? (Bayer oddly would be a better fit for Weekend Update I think than Cecily Strong, since Strong's a good sketch performer and Bayer struggles there.) Beck Bennett needs more time, but he seems cut from the Meyers/Fey mold of being a good writer as well as performer.

They've already named a new Update host. I think in terms of heart and soul it falls to Killam, though Kenan Thompson's been there forever and is the funniest person on the show (though Killam's close), so he could take over. 

On your Beck Bennett point, I think he's the only funny one out of this year's class of featured performers. Guess they had to hit a bad year of new guys, after last year and 2010, which had Bryant, Strong, Killam, Pharaoh, Bayer, and McKinnon.

Yep, Colin Jost. Never heard of the guy, but we'll see how that works out. Bennett's got a great future on the show, and I think once she gets used to the environment, Sasheer Zamata will be fine. The others, yeah I don't forsee lasting long, other than Milhiser. I think Kenan's sort of in that Tim Meadows/Darrell Hammond mode in that it's never really been "his" show to lead even though he's been there for a long time. Killam seems to be the obvious leader now. If you watch enough, you can kind of tell who the leaders of the cast are: Chevy (first year), Ackroyd (after Chevy left), Murphy, Hartman (was for the Carvey/Sandler/Rock cast what Meyers was to this current cast), Ferrell, Fey/Poehler/Rudolph (they all sort of led together), then Meyers. And somewhere in there, you'd have to throw in Al Franken, as he was there for a long time and had a lot of influence on sketches and was like Meyers in that he was a go-to for a joke or a sketch change.
