Christmas came a little early tonight in the form of a seven minute mini episode. Looks like Anderson his well on his way to his rightful place talking to himself in a dirty trench coat on a street corner.

*comes crashing in*

A new Sherlock thread!

So I don't think I can wait for PBS to air the new episodes, especially since they shorten them by 8 minutes (or at least that's what they did for Season 2). It's going to be hard to avoid spoilers, anyway.

Piracy!

I just watched it! Or most of it; the stream crashed for a while. It was really fast-paced compared to past episodes and was also really funny, when it wasn't being intense. I'll have to wait until the actual US airdate to see the part I missed.

Dowloading the torrent as we speak. NO SPOILERS!
 
I really mean it.

It was good but more about bringing Sherlock and Watson back together than the secondary plot. Gatniss is coy about whether the explanation for the end of the last episode is the true one. Watson's fiancée was funny and a little suspicious. Hoping the next one will be better.

Both lead actors were pretty outstanding, both dramatically and comedically.


THE 'BATCH!

I downloaded Google Chrome and the Hola extension just so that I could re-watch it on the BBC's site and see the part I missed. It turns out that I missed a lot of things due to the crappy quality of the live stream I was watching.

Thoughts:
 

-- I keep reading that "we still don't know how he did it." Um, I thought it was pretty obvious that the last scenario was the real one, since it didn't involve magicians or Sherlock making out with Moriarty (which was hilarious). Sherlock probably told Anderson the real story because he seemed to be the only one who really wanted to know. The writers said that we would find out, so I think that's it.
-- Mycroft and Sherlock playing games together was weird and adorable.
-- Sherlock needs to be punched again after that thing he did with the bomb. Apparently it's never not OK to be trolling John.

I just came across this interesting bit about John
Quote:
We don't know much about Holmes's childhood, true, but he has no such ungovernable impulses as an adult. He can be accused of indoor firearm use, but not much more. As for sexual promiscuity and numerous short-term relationships? That honor is far more likely to go to the good Dr. Watson, the self-proclaimed conqueror of females over many nations and three separate continents.
in this fun article. Stop Calling Sherlock a Sociopath! Thanks, a Psychologist.
I've seen this "Three Continents Watson" thing referenced elsewhere in the fandom but I have no idea where it came from canonically. Does anybody know where this rumor of Watson the womanizer came from?

2 - The Sign of Four - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930)

Quote:
Miss Morstan entered the room with a firm step and an outward composure of manner. She was a blonde young lady, small, dainty, well gloved, and dressed in the most perfect taste. There was, however, a plainness and simplicity about her costume which bore with it a suggestion of limited means. The dress was a sombre grayish beige, untrimmed and unbraided, and she wore a small turban of the same dull hue, relieved only by a suspicion of white feather in the side. Her face had neither regularity of feature nor beauty of complexion, but her expression was sweet and amiable, and her large blue eyes were singularly spiritual and sympathetic. In an experience of women which extends over many nations and three separate continents, I have never looked upon a face which gave a clearer promise of a refined and sensitive nature. I could not but observe that as she took the seat which Sherlock Holmes placed for her, her lip trembled, her hand quivered, and she showed every sign of intense inward agitation.

Well I loved the second episode, though it's getting absolutely slaughtered by most over here, people declaring they are abandoning the series etc.

I think it delivered something that just didn't meet up with people's expectations, and most have decided that means it was shit. I found it highly entertaining, quite clever and humanised Sherlock quite well. I'll wait to see what you guys think on your side of the pond before going further.
