    ^ All kinds of rumours, and countdown widget, pointing to Oct 31 in the UK ... but not official yet.

    And everyone from Steven Moffat to the Cumberman himself have been lobbying for simultaneous (well, bar the time difference) broadcast in North America, but we'll have to wait to see if that pans out.

    That'd be GREAT!

    But, as with Downton Abbey, I don't see PBS making that happen.

    Well this is the link that led me to believe that FINALLY we would be seeing "Sherlock" at the end of October in the US: http://www.theglobaldispatch.com/she...omplete-59017/

    Maybe it is just another misleading article, but I really want it to be true.

    Oh, I hope this accurate!

    Of course, here in the states we'd have to wait 4-6 months after that (I'd estimate), but closer is CLOSER!

    Comic-Con 2013 'Sherlock' going to Comic-Con, premiere set for 2014

    We can also confirm that season three of Sherlock will indeed run in the U.S. on PBS in 2014, more details on that here (as usual, those Brits will get Sherlock first for some reason … something about making the show?).

    ^ Loved it! We always watch it. I do wish we got to see the entire Pops Goes the Fourth! concert from Boston in its entirety each year (it used to be aired on A&E/Bravo). In the last few years, one of the Network channels would only air the final hour or so, leading up to the fireworks. This year, nothing - although I wonder if that has to do with the tragedy of the Boston marathon bombings (and a conscious effort to keep things low key & out of the spotlight for this year ?).

    I agree...I miss the Boston Pops telecast! They had MBTA Transit Officer Richard Donahue (from the Watertown/Boston bomber shoot-out) conduct one of the numbers...he's recovering and on crutches, but he was able to stand for a few minutes...many in the audience were wearing BOSTON STRONG and COLLIER PROUD t-shirts...very moving and uplifting (I saw a video clip). I think the problem with getting a national broadcast is due to trouble getting a corporate sponsor to foot the cost. They barely hung on for those few years when we at least got to see the final hour.

    6 Must-See Videos of the July 4th Boston Pops Concert & Fireworks Display
    Lisa DeCanio July 5th 2013, 10:59am

    The 40th Annual Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular lived up to its name this year. The 2013 concert and fireworks display was one for the books, filled with both American patriotism and Boston pride. Despite heightened security measures, the crowds swelled, everyone obeyed the rules and the entire evening went off without a hitch.

    While the whole show was magical, there were specific moments that stood out at the July 4th show on the Esplanade. From MBTA officer Dic Donohue making an awe-inspiring appearance to the fireworks igniting the Boston skyline, we've rounded up videos of some of the best 4th of July 2013 moments for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

    Review: 'Endeavour' and its younger Morse are welcome company
    'Endeavour' on PBS' 'Masterpiece Mystery' stars Shaun Evans as Morse and Roger Allam as his superior, Fred Thursday. It's an overall enjoyable prequel.

    By Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times Television Critic
    July 6, 2013, 6:30 a.m.

    Having last year put a toe in the water with an exploratory pilot and found it fine, "Endeavour" returns to the PBS series "Masterpiece Mystery" Sunday with four new episodes. They are excellent company, even if they sometimes feel too coincidental, complicated, clever or corpse-strewn to be true.

    The series is a prequel to the beloved "Inspector Morse" (1987-2000), which starred the late John Thaw as an Oxford-based police detective. (The character's first name provides the new show's title.) While Kevin Whately, who played his old number two, mans the ongoing timeline in the sequel "Inspector Lewis," "Endeavour" jumps back to the mid-'60s, when the future chief inspector was yet a mere detective constable; it keeps the character alive at the same time it feeds our not wholly exhausted taste for midcentury period drama.

    The Seattle PBS affiliate is repeating season 7 of Foyle's War, no doubt in preparation for season 8 coming in September. I for one can't remember a lot of details about where we left off with Foyle, Sam, and the others, so I'm looking forward to that.

    2 episodes this Thursday, and the 3rd episode on the 18th.

    For some reason, I've never watched Foyle's War! And I like Michael Kitchen (loved him in the film Enchanted April). I think I'll start watching when Season 8 starts.

    EDIT: Here's another review of Endeavour...

    'Endeavour' on Masterpiece Mystery: Morse the Younger
    By Tirdad Derakhshani, Inquirer Staff Writer
    POSTED: July 07, 2013

    Excerpt:

    He prefers to keep company with Mozart , Wagner, and Debussy rather than go out with the lads for a brew.

    One thing the young Detective Constable Endeavour Morse most assuredly is not is a lad. Or a dude.

    Awkward, socially inept Morse is the brilliant detective featured in the PBS Masterpiece Mystery entry Endeavour, a finely crafted TV series set in the ancient university town of Oxford in the mid-1960s.

    The first season, which consists of four feature-length mysteries, premieres at 9 p.m. Sunday and runs on consecutive Sundays through July 28 on WHYY TV12.

    Endeavour was commissioned by the ITV network after a one-off TV movie of the same title aired in 2011 to critical and popular acclaim.

    Liverpudlian actor Shaun Evans, who reprises his role as Endeavour Morse, said he was pleasantly shocked that ITV picked up the show.

    "I never thought it would go any further," Evans said on the phone from London. "Then I got the call that they wanted to make four more." Evans, 33, an impressive, deeply intuitive actor who has made Endeavour Morse very much his own, said a second season already had been green-lighted for next year.

    The reason for Endeavour's success isn't hard to divine. It's written with meticulous care, insight, and eye for detail, and it features some of the best British actors, including Roger Allam and Anton Lesser.

    But it's Endeavour's provenance makes it all the more fascinating: It's the second spinoff of one of the most beloved TV mysteries from the 1990s, Inspector Morse, which featured the inimitable John Thaw as the title character and Kevin Whately as his oft-mistreated bagman, Sergeant Robert Lewis.

    Well, they finally made it happen with Doctor Who after years of delayed broadcasting, so there is always hope. Of course, Doctor Who gets financial support from the US now (is it PBS? Or someone else; I don't remember) which has resulted in several episodes being filmed in the US and probably has something to do with simultaneous broadcasting.
