    Episode 4.1 "The Six Thatchers"

    One thing I still have trouble wrapping my head around this episode is the fact that it started off with a mystery which involved a kid getting burned to his death. That felt too gorey for me. It felt out of place. It didn't look like the initial mystery of the missing kid was anything other than plot device so I saw no need for Mofatiss to make it so dark.

    Patterns throughout BBC Sherlock

    This video does a good job of explaining what kind writer Moffat is based off how he writes Sherlock and Doctor Who:

    Episode 3.3, "His Last Vow"

    Not sure where to put this but this is a great video essay on how Sherlock uses its editing to aid its visual storytelling:

    Harry Potter + other JK Rowling

    So this guy claims that Sherlock isn't really a mystery series and says that Harry Potter is: Do any of you agree with him? Personally I think the first few episodes were mystery stories but starting from The Reichenbach Fall, the series started devolving into what we have in The Final Problem which is barely a mystery in my eyes.

    The Political Thread

    According to my friend's wife, some women (not all) have an innate desire to be admired for their beauty, especially by men. It helps them build self-confidence.

    Female Sherlock!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw3jHjEgPFU I don't know what to think of this. The Japanese mystery series that I've seen have been a mixed bag. Some have been good. Others not so much. I hope this series is good though. I need a good mystery series to watch because nobody knows how long it will take for another Sherlock season to premiere.

    Game of Thrones

    At 18:30 this video starts explaining one of the main flaws of Game of Thrones' writing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iePTjdDXslM#t=18m30s I generally agree with what this guy is saying but I believe that his criticisms apply more to the TV show than the books. I also believe Martin has an ending planned that he hopes he can write before he dies.

    The Political Thread

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-trump-charlottesville-violence-20170812-story.html Trump blames 'many sides' for the for the violence in Charlottesville protests. I wonder if these 'many sides' include the neo-nazis?

    Game of Thrones

    I have to ask as someone familiar with the books, do you agree with this criticism of the TV adaption? I think this is right. This is one of the reasons why I hope (and am quite certain) that the series will get re-adapted one day and stay more loyal to the books.

    Game of Thrones

    The thing about Game of Thrones that I dislike is that it seems to get too repetitive with its themes. Its main thesis seems to be about the darkness of humanity which is fine but after seeing so many episodes and reading so many books about this matter in the Westeros-verse, I've gotten bored of this theme. I think the story feels stretched out. Martin was originally planning the series to be a trilogy and personally I think he should have left it as such. It kind of feels like to me that he's stretching out the story to make fan favourites do cool things etc.
