A recent Sherlock special dropped on January 1st, and kind of set the show's kingdom of subscribers ablaze in widespread fits of puzzled fascination, when policeman Philip Anderson somewhat contemptuously calls Sherlock a psychopath.

Hold the phone, what now? Quick on his feet as ever, Sherlock responded:

"I'm not a psychopath, I'm a high-functioning sociopath. Do your research"

Um. Okay.

The folks at Business Insider acted quick on this unanticipated vaguely alarming revelation and asked James Fallon, a neuroscientist at the UC Irvine School of Medicine who specializes in studying psychopaths. Fallon then passed along the question to his close associate, Michael Felong, a doctor who specializes in internal medicine out of Temecula, California, who claims a great interest in Sherlock Holmes to boot. Well the word coming from these guys is that the character of Sherlock, as penned by Doyle, is indeed a psychopath.

Why is Sherlock a psychopath?

Though he's a man who has a god-like intellect, unparalleled brilliance, Sherlock Holmes also continually displays a complete and utter lack of emotion for other people's feelings; and in spite of this, he tends to win over the affection of those around him (Dr. Watson being a prime example), which portrays charismatic psychopathic traits.

Yup. As fate would see fit, it just so happens you've only scratched the surface of highly refined, impressively customizable, Netflix-binge-a-thon experience.

Netflix usually operates with a user-navigation system configured such that you can search for shows and/or movies by titles or common genres--Romance, Action & Adventure. Thing is, there's a hidden way to work around this.

The URL for something simple as 'Documentaries" is; but by changing the numerical segment at the end the URL you can discover 'Controversial Foreign Movies' (2273) and a whole mess of other uber specialized genres.

This little Netflix hack opens up a world of possibilities, and all cheesy slogans aside, there's about to be something for everyone looking to kick back and check out with this clutch streaming service.

Mike Rowe needs you to hear him loud, and hear him clear, when he tells you he's not robbing banks.

The former 'Dirty Jobs' Host and 'Deadliest Catch' narrator's under a great deal of scrutiny after an image of what appears as Mike Rowe from a frickin parallel universe, holding up a bank, surfaced. The resemblance is uncanny, in every sense of the word.

The rumors went viral after various folks across Facebook joked that this was a maddened, wild ploy by Rowe to kickstart a new season of 'Dirty Jobs.'

Rowe was quick to the punch and fought to quell the fast uprising of these rumors by releasing an alibi on his Facebook page: "For what it's worth, I was in Kansas Monday, and can prove it, if need be."

Rowe went on to bury himself in a bit of a hole by offering up something of an outlandish theory, "what if the thief was not an idiot, but a clever person of below average height wearing a Mike Rowe Mask?"

Alright. Will the real Mike Rowe please stand up?

Gabourey Sidibe has no time for your foolishness.

The actress, who plays Becky on the hit TV drama Empire, responded to fans who have turned her recent sex scene on the show into an offensive meme.

Becky recently had some very steamy moments on a roof, and people couldn't stand the fact that Becky could get some while they are still single.

So, Gabby responded.


There you have it. Sidibe has no time for you or your fat-shaming.

She's too busy getting paid.

The Boo Boo is back!

'Mama June,' mother of reality TV star and tiny monster 'Honey Boo Boo,' announced on Facebook this weekend that the family would again be featured on a TV show.

Their hit show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was canceled by TLC last year after it was alleged Mama June was dating a registered sex offender, a claim she denies.

The post on the official Honey Boo Boo Facebook page says the new reality show will debut in December. But it will not be on TLC.

It also uses no periods between sentence, so have fun trying to decipher any hidden meanings.

What will the new show hold? We can only guess.

And pray we get more sweet tunes like this.

Prepare your inner '90s child for some intense nostalgia feels.

The cast of Nickelodeon's sketch comedy show All That reunited at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles to talk about the iconic show.

They even had a chance to sing the All That theme song, which was almost too adorable.

It was glorious.

Lori Beth Denberg was there, and apparently she hasn't aged at all.

If you don't remember All That, start out with this clip of Chris Farley with Kenan Thompson.

And then fall down a YouTube rabbit hole as you relive the '90s.

A man who had just finished binge-watching The Walking Dead on Netflix told police he killed his friend because the victim was slowly turning into a zombie.

Police say the New Mexico man, 23-year-old Damon Perry, beat his pal to death with an electric guitar and microwave before being taken into custody for threatening people with a knife around his apartment complex.

Wow, no chill.

Two maintenance workers held down the man before police arrived.

He was taken into custody where he told police his friend tried to bite him, Walker style.

A local newspaper says Perry was intoxicated at the time of arrest.

Did the suspect look something like this?
