With Halloween firmly in our rearview mirror, the holiday season now stretches out before us. That means family, friends, parties, presents, food, and more food. But it also means cold weather, perhaps snow, and the need to find something to do that is indoors, near a fireplace, and not too far from the kitchen that is overflowing with leftovers. I am, of course, talking about your television.
More specifically, I’m talking about the loads of binge possibilities on that television that will get you primed and ready for the turn of the calendar to 2017. New seasons of our favorites are set to launch, and you need to get caught up. Because nothing says I’m hip, in the know, and game for some great conversation at the upcoming office Christmas party like being able to dissect the last season of Sherlock.
Sherlock, Season 4 (January 1)
If you haven’t been watching the BBC/PBS contemporary version of Arthur Conan Doyle’s supremely successful observational detective Sherlock Holmes, don’t worry. No judgment here. But if you don’t take the time between now and New Year’s Day to get caught up on the series the judgment will be harsh, and deserved.
