Just stumbled on this recent article about an upcoming Netflix series, The Irregulars. I know the relatively minor characters of the Baker Street Irregulars have been presented in film and TV a few times in the past, but they don't seem to have been as popular in those media as those other minor characters, Professor Moriarty and Irene Adler. I did think it was funny that, at the very top of the linked article, there was a picture of Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch, even though they have absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming series. (I guess that's how the Internet works, though. You have to catch the eye.)
I will have to remember to follow announcements about the series, and check it out when it's released. Just another example of how Sherlock Holmes storytelling shows no sign of slowing down in the 21st century!
Last week we watched the final season of the excellent Netflix adaptation of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. I got a big kick out of one little line from little Sunny Baudelaire, who has all kinds of toddler-babble one-liners that make pithy comments on the action in the story. Her contributions are always subtitled at the bottom of the screen, to "translate" the toddler's speech. In the series finale, the Baudelaire orphans have the following exchange:
Klaus: He's gone...he left his boots--
Well done, Netflix...
