Latest Video: FilmCrunch 067: Hairspray, Chuck & Larry, Premonition reviewed
The BBC has extended a nice holiday gift to Sherlock fans, by way of releasing a mini-episode prequel to the show's third season.
Simply titled "Many Happy Returns," the 7-minute video - penned by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat - sees Inspector Lestrade listening to a convincing theory that Sherlock Holmes is still alive and solving cases two years after his supposed death. Although Benedict Cumberbatch doesn't get much face time save for a previously recorded video played at the end of the clip, we do get to see plenty of Martin Freeman (Dr. John Watson)! Enjoy your British TV Christmas gift - hopefully it'll hold you over until the show returns to PBS on January 19th!

"A lot of what the Kardshians do, I don’t think they get enough credit for what they do. They prep America to accept interracial relationships. I’m not talking about me, I can hope on a plane. I can date a white woman, I can date a black woman, and no matter what they say in the barber shop don’t matter, because I don’t get my haircut there. For the people that do, though, there’s a white woman that’s getting talked down to by her friends because she’s dating a black guy. Now you’ve got a point of reference, that you can say, 'Well, actually this couple right here, that’s dope.'"
- Kanye West points out the importance of the Kardashians' reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Dianna Agron is finding it "hard" to be away from the Glee cast.
The 27-year-old actress is upset at claims there was a rift between herself and the other stars of the show after she failed to appear in last month's special Cory Monteith tribute episode, and admits it has made dealing with the death of her co-star even more difficult.
Dianna - who played Quinn Fabray on the show - told Ireland's Independent newspaper, "Bad news spreads faster than anything good. And I think it's just such a shame, especially involving someone that we love so much, that the good old internet has taken everything that they want to say about it and spread it like wildfire. So I've nothing but love for that show and everybody involved in it and it was such a huge part of my life, so I think it's equally hard when I'm not there every day anymore, I don't see all of them every day anymore to have things like this fly around. It's more heartbreaking than it would be if I was there with everybody. It makes me feel even farther away from our show."

The 48-year-old star has offered an olive branch to his former friend - whom he fell out with after he was famously fired him from the program in 2011 - and promised to reach out to him in person following an appeal on Twitter: "Hey Chuck. I have an idea that u need to hear [sic] after I make amends to you and yours. Which I will do in person. xox C [sic]."

Charlie also slammed a number of Warner Bros. executives before the show's network, CBS, suspended the final four episodes of the season and fired him. He then filed a $100 million lawsuit against Chuck however the pair later settled out of court.

"I read that and I loved it and we'd gone through rehearsal and I could barely breathe in rehearsal and when we got to the show, I honestly thought that I would be fine.
