(NB no, Google Images doesn't have any pictures of Robert Downey Jr's Holmes sitting like this. My point still stands.)

Top 20 TV shows of 2013
In years to come, we will remember 2013 as the year everything changed. Danny Dyer is now in Eastenders, and across the land all else has ceased to matter.

Top 20 TV shows of 2012
We spent 2012 doing what we do best: watching TV and putting off writing about it. And my stars, the things we've seen. If only there were some way to convey our preferences of one thing over another through hierarchical structuring. Wait a minute ...

Elementary: season one premiere
Comparisons between Sherlock and this new American take on the great detective are inevitable, but it's more instructive to compare how the two shows represent their respective countries' TV-making models.
