    Introverts, how is your day?

    Call in sick. Well, that's what I plan to do when the time comes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Episode 4.3 "The Final Problem"

    Actually I would rather believe in the memory lost (actually things like that really happen), than the omnipotent, walking-through-walls-out-of-the-closed-room part. And I meant A Study in Pink talking about Jim meeting Eurus.

    Episode 4.3 "The Final Problem"

    According to this website as the event in ASIP happened around the time Eurus met Jim. And this started the whole story from S1-S4. Now - who of them actually initiated this meeting and why!

    Episode 1.1, "A Study In Pink"

    Well, Jim killed Karl and kept the "weapon" aka poisoned shoes. The question is - did he also know about a boy who tried to convince the police about the importance of this fact.

    Episode 1.1, "A Study In Pink"

    You mean the Xmas present? Need to look after the timing. But first what I've thought about reading this line was the BTS red herring scene with Jim and Myc at Bart's, shaking hands. Oh, imagine they would include that scene in TFP Jim was lurking around also in TBB, as the wire-puller of Chan's business. So it's possible he's got annoyed by Sherlock spoiling his business. But still killing completely random people in a quite sophisticate way just to annoy Scotland Yard - that feels not enough Moriarty-ish for me. Shut up, stupid brain! Yes, Mofftiss might have built the story by pulling notices with random ideas out of a hat. But it's not the point. Magic, remember? A whole that's more than the sum of it's parts? So SHUT THE BEEP UP and let me have fun!

    Episode 1.1, "A Study In Pink"

    Okay, it might be that Jim, when bored, instead of shooting a wall, sends a cabbie to murder random people. But the mentioning of "fan" tells me that Jim was interested in Sherlock (maybe he never stopped observe him, or maybe he realized at some moment that the boy who'd made all that fuzz about poor Karl's death became a consulting detective and it's time to play or just to get rid of him. To me the whole story works only as a trap for Sherlock. And that Sherlock didn't see it for so long.

    I don't know how long it will take until I assimilate (or get rid of) that new way of looking at the show and it's makers. But meanwhile - did we notice that? I assume that "84" is either a typo or a joke.

    Oh, he does care. For each victim he gets paid. He was instructed by Moriarty - and it was all intended to get Sherlock's attention, until he takes the bite and finds the murder, so he needed to survive some of the games. Because Sherlock finding the murder was the part of the plan. Actually, the Cabbie didn't have to be a genius at all, it was enough if he was a good actor with nothing to lose. But then, what was the intention of the whole game? To kill Sherlock? In that case both pills could be poisoned. The cabbie was promised a really big sum going to his kids, if he kills Sherlock Holmes AND himself. Was that Jim's intention? But then, he wouln't have anyone to play any more. Of course he might have been thinking Sherlock was just another annoying sniffing dog and got interested in playing a bit later. Yeah, the old good theorising - only now there is that little voice in my head whispering: Mofftiss didn't care, if it made sense or had a meaning - as long as it looked cool. It spoils all the fun.

    Episode 1.1, "A Study In Pink"

    Oh, about mummy - the way they play the scene implies it's something very important and rather recent. At least that's the feeling I've had.

    Episode 1.1, "A Study In Pink"

    Okay, thanks! The first two I get. But I can't think what you mean about the last one. Help? Well, at the beginning we are shown the victims using bottles with 3 pills each. Why? I doubt Cabbie played a "game" with his victims. It would make no sense to risk his own death. He needed a chain of those fake suicides to draw Sherlock's attention, and still there would be a chance the victim would choose the good bottle by accident. My guess was the Cabbie gave the victims the pills and let them take them at the gunpoint. To make it easier, he could tell the victims only one of the 3 pills is poisonous, but in fact they all were. I know we were there already, but who cares?

    Episode 1.1, "A Study In Pink"

    "Moriarty is more than a man". Mycroft upsetting mummy with something very important. And the fact, that what the Cabbie told Sherlock about killing the others, had to be a lie.

    Episode 1.1, "A Study In Pink"

    Rewatching ASIP. And again realizing S4 destroyed so much of the fun. Instead of thinking about "what's really going on" and "how he did it" - my brain spits out only: "sloppy writing" and "they never had a plan".

    Favourite "Sherlock" Pictures, etc.

    Sorry, wasn't clear enough. It's about the way he looks at those damn, beautiful stills and screencaps. Ben apparently changed a lot between S 3and S4, even if it's not that obvious in his non-Sherlock pics. It seems marriage (and kids) really change people, eh?

    Favourite "Sherlock" Pictures, etc.

    Dunno, there are a lot of early Sherlock on my timeline at Twitter and there is something incredibly innocent and delicate about him - something that IMO was missing after TAB. Apparently shooting bad people and overdosing changes people.
  19. The rollers is actually how I've learnt to make the snow-globes for snowmen. I didn't know they can make themselves, like Sherlock.

    IMO he WAS pleasant. To John and to Mrs Hudson even to Geoff. His Smaug shows in the presence of Andersons.
  21. Oh, thanks. I was already fixing the scripts to the Return of the King, it kind of happens…
  22. Yesterday they showed Bride in TV and I have to say I still enjoy this film and the way it put the actualized elements of canon back to the 19th century. At the same time, the loose ends and allusions and possibilities that were dropped in S4 are literally screaming from the screen. The Moriarty storyline was so promising - there should have been an explanation why he was taunting Sherlock from the deep of his psyche, or any sensible follow up, something that feels like a close-up (or another cliffhanger for S5) But worst of all are those damn five minutes on the plane and the lame attempts to integrate them into the storyline. I literally woke up with this thought in my head. Because it makes no sense, no matter how much you try. Sherlock high on the tarmac completely destroys the last scene of HLV. If Sherlock took something to soothe his nerves, would he be able to switch to the trance mode, not to mention that it would need another kind of drug. The last picture of HLV suggests the plane landed immediately after Mycroft's call. They should have make clear that the plane coming back needed longer, because in reality it really would. With 20+ minutes it would look more believable. Or they should put Sherlock in some kind of isolation until Mycroft gets his status cleared. It would make enough time for the storyline and also spare the effort to recreate the plane's interior in the studio. I think I have to watch something else before I start to

    Bunsen RIP.

    Argh, I always mix up those two races.
