(SPOILER for 2x03) I thought the episode was pretty okay!! The best thing was definitely Molly being so important, the show has nooooooot been kind to her so it felt really satisfying. I have to say that I wasn't particularly struck by Scott? Knowing this is a BBC thing written by a few people behind Doctor Who, he felt far, far too reminiscent of Simm's Master, who I loved, but. I don't know, 'evil mastermind with hilarious music taste very much off the hinge and also the only person to ever be at
Sherlock's (the Doctor's) standard' really didn't keep me hugely interested.

And I was aware of Moriarty's character before this show! (Though I am definitely not a Holmes fan.) But the episode was really well put together, cinematography was wonderful. Benedict's acting was great near the end, but it didn't really feel like it was approaching ~cliffhanger status, maybe since I kind of already knew what was going to happen. :P I don't really feel like focusing on his body and things made it seem his 'death' was more believable, it just seemed like the writers were being all 'teehee see how clever we're going to make ourselves seem this time!!' about it.


It's kind of strange, I was totally into Sherlock the first series, but for some reason was pretty eh about the approach of this one, and actually getting round to watching it. Maybe because it took so long for a few more episodes. I haven't even seen 2x02 yet!!

(SPOILER for Probably everything) Where is the post by Butterfree discussing at great length how great it was to have Watson being all terrified and hallucinatey in the second episode? I am disappoint.

I loved the second series, though. It was consistently good, I thought, and while it had some Moffat Problems - I loved the first episode, and except for a few things that angered me (Irene the lesbian being really into Sherlock, Irene not beating Sherlock, the "look at these freaky ~Asian people~!" bit at the end), it was fantastic, and there were so many bits I utterly loved (Christmas at 221B, everyone loving Mrs. Hudson, Mrs. Hudson being a badass, everyone checking Sherlock's room for drugs, etc.). The second episode had DEVON in, which pleased me immensely, as well as some great guest actors and hilarious bits, and the third episode was brilliant in terms of both scriptwriting and acting. And yaaaaaay Molly <3 Loo Brealey is just about the coolest person in the world. Aside from being totally adorable (you guys can keep your Freemans and Cumberbatches, and her tweets when 'Molly' was a TT on Twitter was the cutest thing), every interview I've read with her is hilarious, she identifies as a feminist, and when she stumbled upon somebody's porny Molly/Moriarty fanfic, she reassured the freaking-out author that such creative endeavours were cool.

Well, it was delightful! Sherlock was pretty delightful too in that episode, actually. :D Though I was actually considerably more delighted by the entirety of (SPOILER for 2x03) Sherlock's suicide from both Sherlock and John's side and could discuss that at considerable length if somebody cared. It was so good.

Also have I mentioned yet how BARKING MAD Moriarty is. Because he is and it is wonderful. :D (SPOILER for 2x03) His suicide was beautiful - he is enough of a lunatic to kill himself just to win the game. Too bad it kind of also means he's dead so we won't have any more BARKING MAD. Unless he also faked his death somehow but that would also make it less fun. D:

The Reichenbach Fall is just generally the most amazing thing. I liked the others too (though yeah, (SPOILER for 2x01) the fact Irene Adler didn't actually come out victorious bugged the hell out of me - wasn't that kind of supposed to be the whole point of her in the original stories?) but TRF utterly blew me away on so many levels and ended up rather overshadowing them.

Though I really enjoyed the fact The Hounds of Baskerville (SPOILER) replaced period superstition with modern-day superstition - instead of demons and curses, there were conspiracy theories about genetically modified superanimals. Also the reference to animals made to glow. I wish I'd read more Sherlock Holmes stories so I could get these things for all the other episodes.

I watched S2E1 (SPOILER) Man that's a long episode, seriously it's a full length feature. So worth the hour and a half though. Moriarty's "Stayin' Alive" ringtone was ironic and very funny. Irene's actress was amazing, hell everyone was great. And I now get what Butterfree meant by barking mad. I thought he was just nuts, no he barks. Shit, when he randomly yelled at the pool I literally jumped in my seat. But for some reason I've fallen in love with Moriarty too bad he's a few fries extra of a happy meal.

And Irene... alive... wait.. how????? Seriously that is such a random situation. How in the world did Sherlock pull that off???

Palace scene = priceless.

No, you don't. You really, really don't.

(Well, the original reason I said that was after 1x03 and "BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE DO." But the reason I'm saying it now is because 2x03.)

Possibly bumping to say two things - the DVD is good. The audiocommentary is great, and I enjoy the little 'Sherlock Uncovered' section (which I swear is named thusly because people might think it involves an unclothed Benedict at some point, which it in fact does not) which is essentially Moffat going "Yes, yes we're brilliant, probably brillianter than Conan-Doyle, really". But still fun!

And secondly, sort-of related to Sherlock (this vid specifically is, but Cabin Pressure as a whole has Benedict in) - THIS. Watch it, love it, download the entirety of Cabin Pressure, then come and fangirl with me about how brilliant it is.

Holy shit I am fucking in love with everything about this show. The writers are fucking amazing and every episode is so perfect and blows my mind and my feelings for it can basically be summed up in the text alert noise from episode four.

Is it just me who thinks that Moriarty... (SPOILER) might not actually be Moriarty? Every time I watch Sherlock I just get the impression that who we see play Moriarty is just a mook for Sherlock/the police to be angry at, rather than actually being Moriarty? idk I feel like Moriarty is still around and is just waiting around in the shadows instead of being dead.
also joining I guess. :o
