Book Review: Sherlock On Screen

February 9th, 2012 11:05am EST
Sherlock on Screen
It’s sad to admit, that the expression “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” exists because people gravitate toward books with flashy designs and testimonials on their covers. Publishing companies cram as many positive blurbs on there as possible, because they know one of the best ways to drive sales is by word of mouth.

TV on DVD: 'Case Histories' & 'Fortysomething'

Case Histories
Here's the latest in TV on DVD: Acorn Media brings us the fantastic Case Histories, and revisits the Hugh Laurie comedy Fortysomething via Acorn TV.

I haven't read the Kate Atkinson novels that Case Histories is based on, but thanks to the series, now I'm going to. As recently seen on PBS' vaunted Masterpiece Mystery! series, this is a cracking six-episode set. That's largely because it stars the very talented Jason Isaacs (of Brotherhood and The State Within fame), who has never given a bad performance in my book. He has an intensity about him coupled with physical presence that just m...
