ETA After taking y'all's advice: WOW WYNONNA EARP IS SO GOOD YOU GUYS!!! You just saved me so many hours of frustration and disappointment. THANK YOU!!! *HUGS ALL AROUND*

Inner Fangirl: Hey! Hey, Rhoda!

Oh god, what is it now?

Inner Fangirl: I noticed once you’re done with Hannibal you’ll be caught up on most of the things on your List until the Fall.

Why do I feel scared?

Inner Fangirl: I have an idea.

Oh please no.

Inner Fangirl: We should watch Sherlock.

No. No, we shouldn’t.

Inner Fangirl: C’mon, it’ll be fun! There’re only 6 episodes per season!

Yeah but they’re like 2 hours each.

Inner Fangirl: You’re a binge-watcher, you can do it!

But I’ve heard things. The casually misogynistic dialogue. The queerbaiting.

Inner Fangirl: We can write SO MANY BLOGS!

The awkward accidental nudity. You KNOW we hate accidental awkward nudity.

Inner Fangirl: We can reuse our Game of Thrones T&A counter!

Why do we even have that, it’s a terrible idea.

Inner Fangirl: But we have to complete the SuperWhoLock trifecta!

NO WE DON’T.

Inner Fangirl: It’s set in London! Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch in TAILORED SUITS!

STOP IT.

Inner Fangirl: There’s even one set in Victorian Times!!!! With the pipe and the floppy hat and everything!!!!!!!

GODDAMNIT WHY.

I mean, maybe your inner fangirl will realize she's made a huge mistake once you see an episode or two of Sherlock. I've seen the first two seasons, and I wouldn't recommend it. (Then again, I don't care for Moffat, and Sherlock is very Moffat-y.) From what I've heard, Seasons 3 and 4 broke the fandom and caused a lot of frustration.

I have heard that Wynonna Earp is good. I haven't seen it myself: But someone I trust on Tumblr was raving about it. (She's very much into strong female characters and good LGBT representation, for reference.) Seems like it's Supernatural with sisters. I did hear it's gory; maybe on the same level as Hannibal.

If you're looking for other shows to binge, I enjoyed Legion, which stars Dan Stevens, and can fulfill your superhero fix. Visually it's stunning. The plot's slow in the beginning - and deals a lot with the main character's state of mind - but the last few eps are amazing. It's only 6 episodes, so a quicker show to get through.

Oh good re: Wynonna Earp! I'm always wary of recommending stuff I hear about through the vine without seeing it myself.

Legion aired on FX. It looks like it isn't on Netflix at the moment, and damn it, it isn't on the FX website right now. Maybe it's on your cable's OnDemand? Otherwise you can poke your library to get it when the DVD comes out. :)

I agree with Xerinmichellex that Sherlock is very MOFFAT-y. If you have a thin tolerance for Moffat writing like me, watching it will give you a rage so strong that it will take years off your life.

If merely misogyny and queerbaiting were the total of its sins that would be bad enough. But there's also gross racism! Homophobia that's not merely of only the queerbaiting variety! Insulting the viewers' collective intelligence! And more!
