If you read my previous blog post, the one that I literally published a few days ago, you are aware that writing has been difficult for me for a while. The soul (wink!) purpose of this blog has been to practice discernment in the way I consume media. Since the pandemic hit, I consumed a high volume of media but failed to talk about it. Well, let me elaborate… I have over five or six word documents in my desktop that consist of point-form notes about the films and series I watched. I simply left them hanging over there. I know, not cool. While I have zero motivation to review them all for you, I will write about an exceptional series, BBC’s Sherlock (2010-2017) and try to give you the full list of my media consumption with vague ratings down below.
