this thread needs more posts. Especially after The Hounds of Baskerville.
Also this totally needs to happen:
Hounds was AMAZING, btw. Mark Gatiss can do no wrong. There were several moments where I wished I had a sofa to hide behind. It was more sci-fi/horror than mystery/crime, which is totally not a bad thing. Just unexpected. And fabulously executed at that. 83
I think I preferred A Scandal in Belgravia over The Hounds of Baskerville (although I did enjoy both).
My only qualm with the show is Sherlock's major mistakes, which do not really seem to make sense considering how good he is the rest of the time. Obviously you do not want him to be perfect, but when his mistakes are stupid and the things he misses obvious to, well, a regular person, they just seem contrived.
Now, just five days until we see how The Reichenbach Fall plays out.
So...Russell Tovey in the latest episode anyone? 0u0
I didn't think Sherlock made any stupid mistakes in these last 2 episodes. The only time I can think of him having made one is
I think I liked Hounds more, mostly because it was so damn exciting and fast-paced. ASiB was much funnier, though, and was definitely a damn good episode, but the horror/sci-fi aspects of Hounds was just... HNNNNNNNNG
And I wanted to hug Russel/Henry all through the episode. 83
Reichenbach... </3 HE BETTER NOT DIE, DAMMIT. I bet that there will be a cliff (er, waterfall?) hanger at the end of this series, maybe never to be answered by an S3E1. I would sooooooo not put it beyond Moffat to have an eternally ambiguous ending.
Well, just watched the first episode and I don't think I'll make it my last
It has an interesting mix of comedy, forensic thriller, and mystery.
sig quotes I guess? (one of them)
@Namboto: Sums it up pretty well, lol.

I've been seeing a lot of references to this on tumblr, which obviously means that I should get into it!
The cinematoraphy looks totally winner to me just from the gifs I've viewed.
I ship Eridan/foreveralone
Pesterchum handle: desuStorm
The cinematography is always perfectly-done.
But the plots are definitely better than 90% of the stuff you see on TV in all the episodes (even the weakest one, I'd say), and the characters are all really well-written (and consistent throughout the whole show!), not to mention that the actors all pull of their roles perfectly. Even if you're unfamiliar with the ACD canon, you'll get a lot out of the series. I don't know a single person who's watched it without being completely dazzled.
Sherlock BCC is really well executed, the shots and angles are well done and the pacing is perfect. Benedict is a god-send, along with the screen writers. but 2x03. jesus, really?
terezi, stop being a babe
Robot/Shadow 2 is my OTP
I actually liked the episode and didn't see the reasons/means for Sherlock's role in the ending coming. The setup and reasons behind what was done just don't seem cliché at all. And if they didn't end it that way, then there wouldn't be an S3, and it wouldn't exactly be in the spirit of canon if they had skipped that aspect of the scene altogether. Yeah, the situation may be a bit overdone, but the way it was led up to and executed was so great that it really didn't come across as blah or predictable to me.
On another note- Fuck CBS.

Credit to Shortpacked! for my Avatar, which is Clock King, which I colored green to make into a felt member because clock motif, but then ashdenej realized I did a weak job and gave me a better version without my even having to ask.
Your chumhandle is thricelyContemplated, and you speak with threee repetitions as oppposed to the usual two.
So yeah, I just started watching this, and... I still haven't seen the last episode, so I'm utterly baffled as to what all the sidewalk chalk scrawlings of "I believe in Sherlock Holmes" all over the university are about. I guess I'll find out as soon as I can track the episode down. Fantastic show, really.
