Lee, Daniel and returning guest host Jack finally finish off their look into Sherlock Holmes adaptations by looking at the Guy Ritchie-directed and Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law-starring "Sherlock Holmes" (2009) & "Sherlock Holmes: a Game of Shadows" (2011). This much more informal than usual chat goes in and out of talking about both films at the same time. Some of the topics covered include casting choices; the films going in hard on the ambiguously gay themes; Guy Ritchie's slow-mo and gimmicky look into Holmes' brain; Christopher Lee's hairpiece (yet again); and a joke Daniel and Jack share that almost breaks Daniel and just leave Lee confused. Also: a listener comment and a bit of a talk about "Mindhunter" on Netflix.
