From all of us here at The Bits today: A Happy Friday to YOU, sir! (And/or madam.)
We’ve got some great news today for you fans of the BBC’s Sherlock: PBS has just announced that Season Three will officially premiere here in the States on 1/19/14 on Masterpiece, following the 9 PM broadcast of Downton Abbey. This is bar none my favorite show on television right now, so I’m very excited by this. As before, the season will contain three new 90-minute episodes: The Empty Hearse (1/19), The Sign of Three (debuts on 1/26) and His Last Vow (2/2 – Superbowl Sunday as it happens), eached based on a classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story. Blu-ray and DVD versions (SRP $39.98 and $29.98) are NOW available for pre-order on Amazon.com (street date is TBA, but our guess with be early Feb 2014)! You’ll find the temp cover art below. And of course, the BBC has confirmed that Season Four is already in the works. Great news all around!
Now then, today’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest review from Dr. Jahnke is none other than James Wan’s recent The Conjuring on Blu-ray from Universal. And turns out it’s pretty great. Don’t miss it. [Read on here...]
