So. I was talking to my mom on the phone earlier, and mentioned the fact that Merlin is ending soon. She doesn’t watch Merlin, but she sympathized, etc, and then asked about Sherlock. I told her that, directly following the news about Merlin, BBC released the fact that the American airing date for series 3 was pushed back until 2014.
About here, she started flipping out.
Now, seeing as how much my sisters and I incessantly talk about BBC shows, tumblr, and all that, I figured that my mom knew all about the insane Sherlock series 3 drama/never-ending advent. But apparently, no such luck.
She had no idea that Sherlock series 3 wouldn’t air for another whole year. She thought it was coming up in the spring. I was the one who burst her lovely bubble.
Oh, mother. *hugs* You have no idea. You have no idea what it’s been like.
