  1. Well, it sort of helped that I know the Holmes stories. So when I saw the title "Empty hearse", I knew it was to be based on "The Empty House". (I was so wrong for the most part. ) but I had the idea that Sherlock would be back from dead in that one!
  2. The dragons I slay, are from India, I say. I did. I saw s3 before 1 and 2. Loved it!!
  3. I disagree, and I have first hand experience. I saw "Pink" back in 2010, and while I totally loved it I couldn't watch any of the rest of the episodes... till I discovered a channel which actually showed it. So after "Pink", I was saw season 3. And then moved on to seasons 1 and 2. So, my initial reaction to each and every episode of s3 was "WOW" and "LOL!". It was only after repeats and after seeing s1 and 2 that I grew more skeptical about them.
  4. He may not admit it, but I think Ms.Hudson falls strongly in the category of a "friend". It is blatantly clear in the "The falling burglar" scene from "Scandal". I am not very sure, if he considers Lestrade a friend though. Atleast not that close. Well, he doesn't dislike him unlike the other staff from NSY. But would Sherlock have tried to jump off the building had Moriarty targeted only Lestrade, not John or Mrs.Hudson? I have my doubts. Back to the above quote. I don't want to stir up the anger here, but I think *coughcough*Mary*coughcough* comes in as a "friend" as well. Atleast till HLV.
  5. Thankyou! I kind of miss the old Sherlock-Anderson interactions!
  6. I actually like the character, but he strikes me as almost a parody of Holmes. I think the moment I was completely turned off by the series was this http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/07/13/article-0-0CFD973800000578-502_634x592.jpg
  7. I don't cry either, and I didn't. But John's dilemma was pretty clear to me at least. The scene was gut-wrenching. Only the first time though. As I can never take it seriously on re-watches, knowing that Sherlock will be called back in four minutes.
  8. I have seen this before. Here: http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdpb14t3xS1rxf349.gif What exactly is that tiny particle floating in Moriarty's blood? I am getting the feeling it was intentional and has something to do with Moriarty's apparent return...
  9. "Jedi" was rather okay. Maybe a bit better than okay. But among films it is nothing special, unlike "Hope" and "Empire". I believe that is the film where the series began getting downhill and I began losing interest. Two good movies. An average one. Followed by two terrible ones. And then a better one. Should we expect a rise after this? IMO as always! PS: I can't stand the Ewoks!
  10. Just this. If there is a ranking of the emotional scenes in Sherlock, this will come second, just after John's gravestone speech. He is trying so hard not to breakdown, struggling to say something, anything. Remember he was a soldier, so he isn't used to show emotion like that - weeping. Breaking down. In front of everyone, especially Sherlock. The fall was the only episode he did that. And that was in private. Astounding performance by Freeman.
  11. My point being, while Brett IS Sherlock, Cumberbatch is a more entertaining detective.
  12. I think a difference can be made between a good portrayal of ACD SH and a good reimagining of ACD SH. Brett will always be The definitive Holmes because he is exactly what ACD wrote. I do love Cumberbatch more but he is not exactly the character that ACD wrote. He is a lot more cold than Holmes is. As I have said, they play the "I have no sentiments" card too often. Also, Mycroft and Moriarty are miles away from canon. So BC is definitely a more entertaining take on SH than Brett, but Brett is canon. And I really dislike RDJ Holmes so much! Movie 1 was okay. Movie 2 was James Bond in 19th century.
  13. I don't know. Lupita Nyong'o and Andy Serkis are perhaps the only reasons I may see this one. We have had just two good movies in SW so far. Let's see if JJ can deliver. (no doubt, visually he will. As is evident from the ST movies)
  14. Well, Irene had to be sexually scandalous so they'd be able to use at least part of the original plot. And it's pretty hard to think of something that would cause a public stir in that area in this day and age, so of course they had to do something quite extreme with her. A sex worker would not be the only place for someone to be sexually scandalous.sex scandals occur from all sorts of classes. They could simply have given ACD a nod and made her a celebrity of some sort. In the original, Adler too was scandalous despite her profession being an opera singer.
  15. Oh, John and Sherlock are not a couple. But they definitely behave like one!
  16. No nomination for CAM? And no director nod as well? Hmmm. Good for the other three! Cumberbatch was at his best in season 3. (well, because he does comedy so well!) And Martin Freeman deserves to win an award for every season! <3
  17. A dear friend, long presumed to be dead, coming out of nowhere just the day they are getting engaged. This is bound to change the dynamics of the friendship. Even best friends do not remain best friends for all times. There are always ups and downs. With John newly wed, it is no surprise Mary shares his love along with Sherlock. Priorities will change. Its what happened in ACD too. I like realism in my programmes. I find this realistic enough.
