I agree. These past two episodes have focused on developing character.

 
It almost looked like it would fall apart when the soldier wanted to kill himself but it worked out the way I wanted it to. It does leave a bit of the cliffhanger in that we don't know how much John will be involved in future episodes if at all.


Bring on episode 3

I'm an American cheater and watched it on a livestream this afternoon. At first I didn't like it because I felt like I was watching Psych and Sherlock had morphed into Shawn Spencer. But it was a character-oriented episode, and it was nice to see what they do when they're not chasing terrorists and things like that. And it was extremely funny, which felt wrong at first, but I find myself wanting to watch it again.

 
Drunk Sherlock and John...

I really don't like it that Mary's pregnant. That was one thing that I thought would ruin the show, and it's happening. Or so we think; there's still one episode left. I would be surprised if she died right away this season (she dies in the original stories), but I'm wondering if she'll turn out to be evil, will have faked pregnancy symptoms for some reason because she knew Sherlock would notice, or lose the baby. Either way, she seems a little too clever and already knows how to manipulate Sherlock.

Can you really stab someone and they won't notice?


Anyway, I'm really worried about what's going to happen in the next episode. Moffat wrote it. Even if it's devastating, I'm ready for a more traditional Sherlock story now with more intensity and suspense. I guess I'm ready...

It's weird how lots of people just want Sherlock to walk into a room make everyone else look an idiot and solve the case. We've had that quite a few times already and it reduces the character of Sherlock to a deus ex machina.

All I care about is that Watson continues to be the best Watson ever. I'd also like it if they keep going with the random story references that make my geek side smile (although I don't care if they never top how hilarious the of course "rache" was supposed to be Rachel line).

I just like hearing Benedict Cumberbatch say my name.


Ahem, anyway, I got The Complete Sherlock Holmes for Christmas, so I'm going to start reading the stories sometime soon and then maybe I'll get some of the "inside jokes" that are in the show. I've already read about some of them online, and they're pretty clever.

I'm possibly the only one, but I'm not really that crazy about Cumberbatch. He's decent enough.

He's an aquired taste. Seriously though, my take is that he is really a very, very gifted actor and that Sherlock is not his best work: it just doesn't give him enough scope to work with. My favorite by far is Wreckers, followed by Third Star. His performance in Wreckers is just killer.

His Last Vow Sherlock series 3 episode guide

Quote:
It’s a grand, filmic episode from scriptwriter/co-creator Steven Moffat that ping-pongs between sadness and surprises. By the end you’ll probably be torn between sniffling and cheering.
Hopefully this turns out good!

Did you see that?! Did you guys see that?!

 
I'm happy that Moriarty might possibly still be alive, but it could also have been a setup to stop Sherlock from being exiled and sent on a "fatal" mission in Eastern Europe.
Mary shot Sherlock!
I was surprised at Sherlock's "girlfriend," but I knew enough about the original story to see what was going on, and there were subtle hints that it wasn't for real. It was still an entertaining twist.
Sherlock killed somebody!
Magnusson is a Creep with a capital C. Or was.
That Redbeard scene was pretty sad. When Sherlock needs to calm down, he thinks of his dog... "They're putting me down now..." And that means Mycroft was telling him to think of his dog when he was scared at the wedding.
Mary is still pregnant. I don't like where this is going. Is the show going to be a family drama now? I was hoping that she had been faking pregnancy symptoms for some reason.
I was wondering if Sherlock would ever have a relapse. But at least Molly is there to slap some sense into him and Anderson is still up for a drug bust!


That was a fantastic episode. I was glued to my seat the whole time. Mind=Blown. And I am so stoked for next season! There is something exciting to look forward to instead of the rebuilding process that had to be done after Sherlock's "death" last year. Bring. It. On.

No kidding. I can hardly check the thread anymore. I did in fact torrent The Empty Hearse and it was great, although for some reason it wasn't the breathless excitement that I anticipated. The most difficult part of that episode by far was creating a likeable Mary and a believable relationship for her, John and Sherlock, and they totally did it.
