Best Valentine's Day Ever

OK, admittedly, not the most traditional Valentine's Day ever, but if I was going to spend it alone, I don't think I possibly could have chosen a better way to spend it if I'd planned it.  (I don't think I planned it.  If I did plan it, it was subconsciously.  So, way to go, subconscious!)

Basically, I'd been sitting on the third episode of the second season of Sherlock (thank you, for a couple weeks, and, in the absence of anything else to watch tonight, I thought, hey, let's crank up the code-free DVD player and check it out.

Now, I realize this doesn't live up to my usual standard of insightful critical commentary, but "OMG!  THAT WAS SO FREAKIN' AWESOME!"  I spent at least an hour of it leaning forward on the edge of the couch, just grinning like an idiot.  (And it was all the more impressive for the fact that the previous episode kinda, well, blew.  Maybe they do this intentionally -- but it certainly made me lower my expectations.)

The fine folks at PBS are going to be airing this on Masterpiece Mystery in May, but spending my Valentine's Day with Sherlock and Moriarty fighting out the final problem (and a plot point that actually had me yelling "thank you!" at the television) could not have been more perfect.  

(Also:  It's Jen!  From The IT Crowd.  I knew I recognized that not-nearly-as-bright-as-she-thought-she-was characterization from someplace.)

Happy!  Happy!  Happy!
