    Now there is a great first line for a novel.

    I think the point is to understand ourselves better, to realize that just because we're different doesn't mean we're wrong (or they're wrong), just that we have a different way of looking at things -- which is good, because having more than one viewpoint helps us consider a variety of options. I never thought I was intimidating at all, but I've been told that a time or two. One of my college roommates claimed that the first thing I ever said to her was "I sure hope you don't like to study with the radio on."

    Rewatched Good Omens and realized that Mark Gatiss and Benedict Cumberbatch aren't the only Sherlock actors in a minor role there: (that's Jonathan Aris aka Anderson in case the sideburns were throwing you off, which they did for me when watching for the first time)

    Played some kind of chess with my niece and won everytime. She is very bright and held herself very well, but there is no way I'm going to be a chill adult and give in. Do you know how boastful and obnoxious a kid is if they won ONE time over a game you introduced them? No, No, Nope-D, you are young, you have a lot of chance to have glory in your life. Winning this is all I have now, so let you learn that life is not rosy and losing sucks, kiddo.

    Seems unnecessarily cruel.

    In a similar vein … my wish is for Ben to finally end up with a decent hairdo.... Let's see, what else do I wish for … A return of The Coat. I missed it in TFP. The return of Nick Hurran. Three more episodes.

    Thought of starting a Series 5 Wish List thread, then discovered that we already have one that just needs the cobwebs dusted off. One thing I really want to see is that John has reverted to his original hair style -- bit longer, bit shorter, parted left, parted right, I don't care, but The Swoop needs to go. I like to think it was Mary's idea, and that he kept it for a while after her passing, out of respect for her memory. But (as Sherlock pointed out in Reichenbach), John is basically a no-nonsense kinda guy regarding his hair, so I doubt that The Swoop would last very long without Mary's encouragement and/or styling assistance.

    ^ That comic is based on this suggestion.

    I still think the "deduce-off" is still one of my favorite scenes in the whole series.

    Callooh callay! I was just wondering the other day where you'd gotten to. (Now I know!) Alas, "Irongeppetto" is the best I can rustle up.... (apparently RDJ is/was to be in a Pinocchio movie?)

    View Halloa everybody . . I'm still in this mortal coil; just been busy this summer. I am a children's librarian--summer is to us what Christmas shopping season is the the mall retailies. Been there, done that, too. Summer drags on a bit longer but at least I'm not on my feet *all* day. Catching up on some old notifications and was directed here. Just wanted to second J.P.s comment that Watson as an 'outsourced conscience' is a wonderful phrase & all the more so because VBS is writing in her second language, I believe? (or third or fourth--we have some impressive polyglotals in this community.) Now I'm getting a vision of Martin Freeman as 'Jiminy Cricket', balanced on the shoulder of a sulky Benedicchio in a grown-up version of my favorite Disney story. Or perhaps 'Jiminy' is a hedghog perched on the shoulder of 'Pinocchiotter'. I wish I could draw it . . any of you that can, feel free to run with that idea and post it on Tumblr; just be sure to show me!

    Just goes to show you that nowadays everything has become politicized.

    Of course I'm jealous of Reetu for having Mark exclusively to herself for such a long time! The walls I could do by myself.

    Hello everyone! I'm actually an old member here, but it's been something like 5 years since I last logged on. I just wanted to say hello again! It's a bit wild still being able to recognize so many names.

    Just catching up on this stuff and just let me educate you Noobs. Ha! 1. The very FIRST Sherlock Forum I am aware of(and joined) started before Series One even aired. Set up by a guy who had heard the show was happening. 2. The FIRST Hiatus was indeed between S1 and 2 because I suffered from it!

    In Reichenbach, he needed her. And starting with that episode, he does seem to have more respect for her -- on average -- as time goes by.

    My favorite/only superhero that I love. It's a good thing they're giving me the TV show after what they did in Infinity War and Endgame. I'm still not over that. And since this is a picture thread..

    I'm just gonna quote this here for future reference, in case other people need to see it. ...
