"From Sherlock Holmes."

Sometimes, it's the little things.

Little, but a trace of something much larger. 

So, tonight, I decide to watch Conan O'Brien. That's not such a big deal.

And at the start of the show, Conan introduced his guests. Not so exciting, right?

And then he says, ". . . from Sherlock Holmes . . ." my little ears perk up. Cumberbatch is on? I heard nothing of this.

And then Conan finishes, ". . .  Rachel McAdams!"

Let that sink in for a moment. The movie Sherlock Holmes came out in 2009. It's sequel came out in 2011. And yet, it's still being used to introduce the actress who played Irene Adler in 2013. 

The Notebook, Morning Glory, Wedding Crashers . . . all notable Rachel McAdams movies. Red Eye certainly stuck with me. But Sherlock Holmes get top introduction billing even now.

And it brings a silly little moment of joy to the Sherlockian heart.  

(Even if Morning Glory is still my favorite Rachel McAdams movie. I don't think it counts as "a Rachel McAdams movie" unless she lives all the way through it and/or its sequel . . . well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.)

  1. I could only wish people wanted to talk about Rachel McAdams, or any other Holmes than that drugged out fellow, you must know his name, you know the one with the hot asian chick? Those were the only questions I got while attending a halloween party at work. A pox on that damn 'Elementary' show. Here I am dressed as a classic Holmes, and all the people at work either thought Lucy Liu was Holmes, or wanted to know where she was. A few said are you supposed to be that guy, what's the name of the guy on Elementary? Oh you mean Johnny Lee Miller? Who? Is that his name? No one person said Basil Rathbone, or Jeremy Brett, Robert Downey Jr., or even Mr. Cumberbatch. I need to change jobs, or move out of the U.S.A. Curse you 'Elementary!
