    Maybe it was more than a hope on my part... I know he was going for auditions.

    Episode 4.1 "The Six Thatchers"

    I think so.

    I haven't either. Sherlock is all that IMDb has on his acting credits. Maybe his parents want him to finish school first. He seems to have changed his stage name from Louis Oliver (which of course fooled no one) to Louis Moffat.

    Episode 4.1 "The Six Thatchers"

    It does seem that running Sherrinford would be a full-time job! What she does as E and as Faith, though, is not just fool John and Sherlock, but to actually make fools of them. Maybe that's what the writers were going for.

    Episode 4.1 "The Six Thatchers"

    Depends on who's lying to me, and about what. If I'm lied to "for my own good," for example, I'll be indignant. If i find out that someone has lied to me in order to make themselves "more interesting," I'll be bewildered. In either case I'll find it very hard to trust that person again. But I can't think of any time when being lied to has sent me into a screaming rage. Maybe I've just been lucky. Or gullible. Or maybe it depends on what you mean by "angry."
  7. No, on Louis. I haven't heard anything about his further career. While little Sherlock and Eurus get one part after another, there is nothing about him.

    Episode 4.1 "The Six Thatchers"

    It might add to John's feeling of guilt, which is so strong that he projects it on Sherlock. Plus they needed something for John to confess to Sherlock at the end of TLD. And maybe they wanted to introduce Eurus. BTW - do we really needed E for the story development? It actually made Eurus less believable at the end, she had enough creepy talents already.

    Might have fleas in it -- that makes sense. But plumbing? You've lost me. They are?

    Episode 4.1 "The Six Thatchers"

    Let's be honest, neither John or Mary were coventional characters in a 'normal' relationship... I think we have to allow a bit of poetic licence, too.

    Episode 4.1 "The Six Thatchers"

    I ran across this quote: https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2017-12-18/amanda-abbington-reveals-details-of-lovely-deleted-sherlock-scene/ And it got me to wondering again: early on in TAB, while Sherlock is thinking, John and Mary are shown arguing. Then towards the end, we have John saying he thought he was losing Mary. And in between are a few implications that John is a bit sexist, chucking Mary under the chin and things like that. Now, all of this is in Sherlock's head: so are we to believe that Sherlock thinks John and Mary argue a lot and are drifting apart, and that John's a bit sexist? (Pot, kettle, black, Sherlock? ) But in T6T, I don't see any "drifting apart", until John's little dalliance with "E" is revealed. (Which Sherlock knew nothing about until the end of the next episode. In fact, I was always under the impression that he had a rather idealized view of John and Mary's relationship.) But based on Amanda's remarks above, I'm thinking now that we were supposed to see it. Or at the very least, Mark had it in mind when he wrote the script. And it seems an odd choice to me; in an episode that's ultimately about John's devastation at Mary's loss, we're supposed to think he was falling out of love with her in the first place. I have to assume some irony is meant, but somehow it just doesn't hold together. For me. Maybe it's just another example of the "compression" of ideas I think I detect in S4; that six stories were collapsed into three. I also wonder if they are condemning John a bit, for expecting Mary to be a certain, decidedly feminine, way, and getting upset with her for turning out to be something else. Which doesn't seem fair to me, because to me the pertinent point is: Mary lied about who she was. That was a huge breach of John's trust; imo, he had every right to be angry with her, just as he did with Sherlock and his lies. Or is lying considered to be not that big a deal in some circles? My sis and I had a conversation about that once, and we agreed that there's little that makes us angrier than being lied to. But maybe that's just us?

    I heard (or read) somewhere it's because the stuff being sold is old and therefore might contain fleas. I assume the name arose before modern plumbing ... I always wanted to see a flea circus. I was crushed to learn (via Jurassic Park) that they're fake. Hey!!! But, but, but, that is so unfair!!! That's what makes it so much fun....

    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    The only times I've experienced that, it *was* an earthquake, so I have no idea what you felt. Unless -- was your little doggie playing trampoline? Was your heart pounding? Was your downstairs neighbor playing his subwoofer extra loud?

    Yup, I checked, mobile version is not complete. Now in my new phone, the desktop version works. However, today is the day when loading image doesn't work at all. Hmppppphhh (even from imgur which I miraculously able to access today).

    As you might imagine, there are a lot of jokes about flea markets. I have no idea why they're called that. In Hawaii they're called swap meets, though it didn't look to me like anyone was swapping anything.

    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    It's basically an episode when your mind is awake but not your body. Apparently see, feel something that is not there and hallucinating is not uncommon, so does choking. Anyway, after knowing those, I probably experienced it again but I'd just brush it off. The other weird thing I experience quite often is shaking bed, and normally I'd be awake. Originally I thought they are dreamw, but gradually I was half awake (and felt it) and fully awake (and felt it). Since I can't explain it (not earthquake), I have learned to ignore it. Did you ask whether it's a subtext before you slap yourself in the face?

    Hey!!! But, but, but, that is so unfair!!! I remember someone told me wet market is called that way because the condition of the flooring back then. Sometimes it's just make-shift market without proper flooring material and the produces that vendors brought in (especially sea food) "flood" the floor and you have to walk between puddles. Anyway, the first time I heard "flea market" I really really didn't want to go.

    Looks like "Public Market" may be the most common term. Here's a list of various types of markets (public, farmer's, flea, etc.) in all 50 states.

    Seattle has that as well.

    I have no idea how common they are. And different cities apparently call them different things. I knew there was also one in Rochester NY, but I see that it's called a Public Market.

    I deny groping anyone, ever! (And I've never heard the term "city market" before.) Same here. There is (or was) a meat market in Portland, Maine. It creeps me out a little, though.
