    Me too. I think it's partly because we're conditioned to not be "quitters." We think it's virtuous to stick out the tough times. But when your job is more grief than reward, I say it's time to move on. If you can. Ay, there's the rub.

    Good for you, VBS, for recognizing when it's time to quit! I have a feeling you have the smarts and fortitude to land on your feet.

    Introverts, how is your day?

    Weird comments section, though!

    I love articles where actors are actually asked about their craft, rather than about their personal lives. Thanks JP!

    Okay, I finally solved the accordion music mystery! I've been hearing it again, off and on, for several days, but every time I went to investigate, it stopped. I finally noticed my mom looking over her birthday cards, and sure enough, someone had given her one that played "Happy Birthday" when you opened it. She was opening it and snapping it shut over and over, which is why I never heard enough of it to recognize the tune. I do believe she is trying to drive me nuts.

    You just reminded me Carol … I was given one of those drugs when I had gum surgery. They claimed I was awake and talking, but all I remember is the IV needle going in, then blinking my eyes open and it was all over. No sense of time passing whatsoever, it was bizarre. They could've confessed half a dozen murders to me, I wouldn't know. Creepy to think how vulnerable you are in that situation...…. brrrr. I was wondering if they would tie Mary in to the snipers from TRF; it could have been a good way to retrofit her into the story. But if there were such plans, they were abandoned, for whatever reason.
  9. Well, I like to support independent artisans whenever I can, so only the handmade ones for me! Picked one up today, it's exactly what I needed … now the house even smells like Christmas. Time to make wassail.

    Ah, I see. Well, I love stuff, and I'm enthusiastic about stuff (see my mini-review of Green Book ) but I'm done with expecting stuff, because I couldn't handle the fallout. Does that make sense? So, I'm interested to hear LOTR's going to be a TV series, e.g., I'm happy that my favorite story is that popular, but I don't expect it to be any good (or at this rate, something I'll even be able to see, since it'll probably be on some exclusive streaming service or something. 😞 ) So if it's a dog, I'll still be fine. If it's fantastic, I guess I'll be spending a lot of extra money I can't really afford on a streaming service. I take pains to explain this because I've had a couple other people who felt badly for me, but it's not needed, really. I'll jump up and down and squee like anyone else when the time is right (for me.) Honest!

    And thus was born the legend of Vampirelock…...

    It's not relevant for solving the case, but it's essential for setting up the case. Otherwise Faith wouldn't have written the note. The part that didn't make sense to me was why Culverton didn't destroy the note after he took it away from her. Which leads me to wonder if any of it was real, or just a puzzle constructed by Eurus to lure Sherlock out of 221B. But then my mind sort of implodes and I can't ever work out the details. @ Caya … why sad? That's a little trick I learned to help manage mood swings, it's been a blessing for me.

    As do I. Once I realized all those little hints were his doing, and Moftiss weren't even aware of it (they said) I decided to pretty much ignore that kind of thing. Well, from the perspective of one person who deliberately kept her expectations as low as she could (because my high ones have NEVER been met) … I can say that I enjoyed Sherlock thoroughly, and even though I was disappointed by much of S4, I wasn't angry or even particularly saddened … at least, not by anything in the plot. I was, and still am, highly puzzled about the plunge in production values in the first and third episodes, especially since I think TLD is one of the best things they've ever done. At any rate, I learned that trick a long time ago … expect as little as you can, and you might be pleasantly surprised. Works for me.

    Both. I know, I'm a slacker.

    It's my personal suspicion, based on virtually no evidence whatsoever that they collapsed S4 and S5 into one season. Either they lost interest in writing it, or the actors lost interest in performing it, or something … but the S4 timeline feels sooooooooooo rushed to me. Sherlock suffers exactly zero consequences for murdering Magnussen. John and Mary were only married a few months, most of which time they weren't speaking, and then 'poof' she dies. Molly and Greg barely have any scenes. With zero foreshadowing, Sherlock's amnesia is revealed. A sister's introduced one minute, and they rush off to confront her the next, with no time for the idea to take hold. It all says to me there was more story in the works, but for whatever reason, it was abandoned … and we just got what was left. I could, however, be completely off the track. I find I don't mind the concept of Eurus … just the abrupt way they established her existence. That's a reveal that needed a lot more time to cook, imo. But the character herself I found rather intriguing … and like you, I thought Sian Brooke did a terrific job with her. But I'm afraid that even if there is an S5, we'll never see or hear from her again. Me too!
