Winter is the perfect time to catch up on TV and DVD. Adam opens with Sherlock. The trio discusses the characters, the relationship with Mrs. Hudson and the deer stalker hat. Brad and Christina notice comparisons to the 7th Doctor. Switching to movies, Adam has seen and enjoyed Mission Impossible. He also saw Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows, and while he liked it, he found the first movie superior. That said, though, he did love the cinematography. Back to the tv series, Christina loves the way you are visually shown the texts and thought processes. Adam and Christina promise to watch Downton Abbey. The thought leads to Community, which Adam is happy to announce will be coming back. They briefly touch on the Doctor Who Christmas special and how each felt about the show.

  1. 1- Christina: I understand your points about a woman changing her hair style 😀 It’s a woman thing. Silly boys don’t understand it 😛
    2- About Supernatural (without knowing any spoilers), they’ve always said that DEATH doesn’t mean the same thing. There are plenty of characters that have died but have returned in some way. Besides Sam/Dean, this has happened with Ellen, Pamela, Ash, Rufus, Mary & John, evil Grandpappy Campbell, etc. Just cause Bobby is dead doesn’t mean he’s gone. Have faith. (Again, I don’t know any spoilers or future knowledge of episodes)
    3- Why is it that SGU isn’t on Blu-Ray for season 2?? Even for the other regions, no one has season 2 on blu-ray
