Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 TV Detectives
Kate of the Suddenly Kate Show is hosting Top 5 Tuesdays again and I'm going to try and remember to post each week. I can't believe this is my first post this year! Things were a little crazy at work, and then I came down with another difficult cold that left me with at least one completely sleepless night, so I have been a little occupied. :) Today I'm a fair bit better, so let's try and get back to blogging!
TOP 5 TV DETECTIVES
Some of you may argue he's a superhero, but he technically has no super powers, and his comics are or have been called Detective comics, therefore he's detective! :) My favourite Batman of all time has been the Batman: The Animated Series version. Here's a best-moments video:
There have been tons of Sherlocks on TV, and although my ultimate favourite had been Jeremy Brett, I am very fond of Benedict Cumberbatch's version. Johnny Lee Miller in Elementary is worth watching too though. Here's a clip of Jeremy Brett as I think you've all seen or heard of the other two shows. :)
Best quotes from Jeremy Brett:
3. Miss Marple
I used to watch this show whenever I had a chance. Joan Hickson seemed born to this role as Jeremy Brett was born to Sherlock and David Suchet to Hercule Poirot. I'm not as fond of the newer Miss Marple, but the old black and white ones with Margaret Rutherford are a good watch as well.
4. Bones/Agent Booth
From the show Bones, Emily Deschanel as Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan and David Boreanaz as Agent Seeley Booth. They make a fun team and I love watching this show. It's always fun to see if I guess right at who-dun-it. :)
A little blurb about the final season (12) that started last week:
This was a tough choice between Poirot and Columbo, and 2 such very different personalities too. But since Kate covered Poirot, I'm going to go with Columbo. Peter Falk was a fantastic choice for this role, and since no one has yet remade it, clearly no one else thinks it can be anyone else's role either. ;) One of my favourite parts is how he adopts a basset hound, <3
I hope you've all had a good New Year's and I'll try and get a stitching post up soon as well.
