The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

So apparently Benedict and Martin know..."Watson's right. Nobody cares what he says the internet has already decided. In fact, from the minute Sherlock appeared, the instant audience conclusion was that Holmes and Watson were lovers. Cumberbatch and Freeman have been dealing with the fallout ever since, in part with good humour, in part with mild exasperation. "Much as Sherlock adores John, and he's fond of him, there's no love, there's nothing sexual all the jokes aside," Cumberbatch says. "The problem is, they [the jokes in the script] fuel the fantasy of the few into flames for the many. People presume that's what it is, but it's not."So apparently Benedict and Martin know...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The series has inspired cultish devotion that easily outstrips its short first run.Hardcore Sherlock fans have taken to sites such as Tumblr in order to imagine what Holmes and Watson might get up to once the deduction is done for the day. Cue much nervous giggling between Freeman and Cumberbatch. "There is weird fan fiction out there weird," Cumberbatch says. "They writ

Feature: Doctor WhoTrust me, I'm the DoctorFeature: Doctor Who2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause-of-effect...but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly ... timey-wimey ... stuff"
Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by BBC. It depicts the adventures of a Time Lord, a time travelling, humanoid alien with two hearts known as The Doctor. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a time-and-space-travel machine that flies through the time vortex which exterior appears as a blue British police box. Along with a succession of companions, the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations and help ordinary people.

"Crime fighter, soldier, doctor, consulting detective, these are mere labels. John, to Sherlock, is brother in arms, partner in crime, and trusted friend, and the one he trusts with his life and his death. Sherlock, to John, the man who brought John back to life, gave him a cause to fight for, and a friendship that is like none other. Together, well, try and stop them, they dare you. That's what makes them who they are."

The Wrong ways of being a Muslim Okay gaiz. Disclaimer. I love my religion. You guys know that. I go on rants about the awesomeness of Islam. BUT that does not mean that there aren't things about religion and religiousness that just really REALLY get on my nerves and here they are:The Wrong ways of being a Muslim2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's always something or the other I find very annoying about all religious people. Don't get me wrong, Islam is well and good I suppose. It's just that, the way it is practiced makes it all appear so staggeringly inane sometimes. Wherever I go in life, however many years pass, some 'good' Muslim or the other will come along and make me wish to skewer and serve them as kebabs for iftari.
My chief grievance, even more so than the murder-condoning loonies that grace the television screens and classrooms of good old Pakistan, is the megalomaniacs that think THEY. ARE. BETTER. THAN ANYONE ELSE. Surely you've come across them. Their smug "holier-than-thou" faces are impossible to erase from memory. If you've
