  2. These both look good, although Sherlock is starting to get a little played out! Despite this, this one looks pretty good. I hope dear Watson is ok. :)

  3. So many Sherlock adaptations! I do think the Russian one looks good though. The second video I’ll have to go to YouTube for. It’s not working gophers for me.

    1. I remember when I posted a post on one of Serbian WW1 films as the first one to do it in English, and the producer saw it and changed the video so that it can be viewed only on YouTube. Instead of thanking me for promoting the film for free and translating the text into English he thought the views here will lower the views over there, even though they are counted as his hits on both places. Such cunts still do exist, deary, sadly.... How am I earning anything from your silly little films and shows??? I promote them for free, you blazing lemons....

    2. It's like when I find something I like online and pin it to pinterest and the blogger gets pissed and has pinterest take it down. Like, that's free freakin' advertising to YOUR blog, you dolt. I have over 1 million viewers on Pinterest monthly, but some people are too stupid to take advantage of that kind of free promotion.
