I discovered Sherlock Holmes when I was young.

Ahhhhh,, I wish I could say the same. But it has been sooo very long since I was young.

But welcome to, in your word, this world!

(I notice there is a cute waving hand on top right of Fauve's avatar that seems to indicate that he/she is new member and some kind of badge at Carol's to indicate that he/she has authority to kick my butt out if I misbehave. What is the possibility that we, lowly regular member that have been alive here for too long, get something?

A carrot, for example?

Well, there's the rocket ship (I think?), which when moused over indicates that you (for example) are a Consulting Detective.  (I still have no idea what has become of our self-chosen ranks -- maybe the new software doesn't support them.)

Hello, fauve, and welcome back to Baker Street!

Which Holmes movies have you seen recently?

 

Hmm… probably the one I seen recently is interesting Der Mann, Der Sherlock Holmes war from Karl Hart. It’s a nazi propaganda adaptation movie. I think the nazis want to ridiculize englishmen.

I also hear french radiophonic cerations from “France Culture” radio channel who make interesting crossover between Sherlock Holmes and Moris Leblanc’s Arsen Lupin novels.

Well that's a couple that I haven't seen -- or even heard of.

Some of the Rathbone-Bruce Holmes movies were also made during the war, but in the UK, so of course they were anti-Nazi.

In Der Mann, Der Sherlock Holmes war, Sherlock isn’t a nazi. He still an english. But he is a teaf and an impostor. He represente the englishmen. I think it’s the same than the Titanic of Herbert Selpin. The story is centered of how Englishs (and Americans) has an immoral behaviour, when the Germans was blameless.

Sounds generally similar to British/American war-era films (except the other way 'round, of course).  Some of them did show Brits/Americans who made mistakes or had bad motives, but most were fairly simple-minded stuff, like most movies in any era, I suppose.

Egad, I didn't even notice, when did that happen?

Welcome, Fauve! I hope you find lots of fun stuff to discuss here.

Mm, sometime recently?   ;)

The self-chosen ranks are back, though, now called "Custom Rank::" just below the list of favo(u)rite episodes (just now noticed that for series 1, it's favorite, but favourite for the other three) below one's avatar image.

Well, my custom rank is there, but where's yours? Are you and John not friends anymore? :-)

I'm hoping to come up with something quirkier.
