    What is your favourite scene involving Moriarty in series 2?

    Moriarty getting to the crown jewels. I love that entire sequence, the music, the way it is filmed, the humor, everything.

    Recently watched movies

    Thanks for the review, now I am no longer sad I will not be able to see the new Aladdin at the theater. Just watched Ready Player One. 7/10, I would say. I would have taken so very, very little to make it a 9...
  3. This sums up my problem with English (and German) classes in school. I love reading and writing but I hated the kind of reading and writing you are forced to do there.
  4. At first I wanted to choose the scene in His Last Vow where Sherlock wills himself back to life. That whole mind palace sequence after he has been shot is great, imo. But even though John is mentioned there, he isn't really present, so I figured that didn't count.
  5. Doesn't exist...? Is Sherlock supposed to have imagined her, or...? What about all the other people at Sherrinford? Mass delusion?
  6. Oh, only series 3! Thanks, Carol, I must have missed that part. Hmmmm... In that case, I am going to go with the scene where John asks Sherlock to be his best man.
  7. Welcome! Nice picture. I think we already have a general favorite scenes thread but not one for Sherlock and John scenes specifically. Well, now we do thanks to you. Hmmmm... I'll have to think about mine a little. Off the top of my head, it would be their conversation at the end of "The Lying Detective".

    Game of Thrones

    So, here are all the things I liked about the ending:

    Game of Thrones

    Hey, from what I have seen so far, I quite like the ending. The What, at least. As for the How, well... I guess the books will do a better job of making it convincing.

    The Political Thread

    I really don't have a firm opinion on GMOs yet. It's one of those "need more data" issues for me. What I do know though is that it's usually a matter of things like parasite resistent corn or the bacteria that you mentioned. Not birds with multiple heads. If you're a political party promising to abolish something, you should at least know the basics of what that is. The poster tells me that either the people who put it up are really ignorant or they think I am ignorant and susceptible to cheap scare tactics. I don't like either of those scenarios.

    The Political Thread

    I saw a poster for one of the parties competing in the European elections recently that said "No GMOs!" and showed a picture of a two-headed chicken. Why didn't they go with the hound of the Baskervilles while they were at it? Are they really that stupid or do they think we are?

    Game of Thrones

    I hardly dare voice my opinion on this show publicly here because I know so little about it, really, but as far as I can see, I agree that for many recent developments, it's not the What that bothers me, it's the How. I feel like (almost) the same outcomes could have been achieved in much more believable and satisfying ways. (And J.P.: Personally, I think Sherlock fared way better than GoT as a series).

    Game of Thrones

    Yeah, I am actually really grateful that the violence turned me away early because I am sure that the series has great potential to draw people like me in and never let go. And then break my heart. With only two more episodes to go and so many loose threads left, I cannot imagine how the end of the TV show is going to be anything but a let down. I only have one prediction at this point: The books will be different. Just because that if I were a writer and people were finishing the TV series based on my novels before I had the chance to publish the last volumes, I would never ever give away the real ending.

    Game of Thrones

    Well, I am hardly qualified to give an opinion as I only follow the series with a kind of morbid fascination from afar, but my guess is that you won't get most of those questions answered until the final books come out. I am loving all your GoT comments, btw.
