I was just watching S3E3 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Titus was trying to think of a trigger word to get Kimmy to remember her time in the bunker. He started naming a bunch of words beginning with the letter C, including Cumberbatch.
Hearing anyone say his name is so exciting, no matter how silly the situation!
I love Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt! I'm in the middle of moving so I haven't had the chance to watch season 3 yet but I am excited for it!
I got a chuckle out of the latest episode of Doctor Who, they mentioned Pope Benedict (not the one of a few years ago, but the one from a millennium ago) tons of times who apparently was...a woman? I also re-watched the Christmas Special from 2015 a few days ago, does this scene remind anyone else of Sherlock? It just gave me the vibes, both the Doctor (who's being sarcastic in the scene) and especially the music. It's bigger on the inside!
I didn't watch that Bigheads show this week because I thought it was a repeat of the first episode, which I had already seen. I figured that once they lost, they were out of the competition. But apparently not!
Pajiba has touched on the "posh actors" discussion (are most actors "posh?" if so why?, are actors going to trend more "posh" in the future?, etc) And they put up an article trying to rate American actors on a poshness scale. What's funny is the two extremes of their poshness scale are Julie Waters (daughter of a postal clerk and builder) and, on the other end, you guessed it, Benedict Cumberbatch. I can think of some British actors who are actually more posh than Benedict, but I can't think of any who are labeled "posh" more often, so I guess it fits.
I don't agree with all their ratings, but the thing that most stuck with me (aside from learning that Andersen Cooper and Timothy Olyphant are 3rd cousins, and Vanderbilts) is that American "posh" is apparently much different from British "posh".
