…And now it’s really been awhile since I last updated this blog. My laptop got fixed, after three weeks, but then I sold it and got a new one. So, back now! In the meantime, my obsession with all things Sherlock has progressed from Benedict Cumberbatch to Rupert Graves, who is in a lot of […]
It has been a long long time since a show has grabbed my attention the way Sherlock has, to the point that I’ve been completely neglecting, well, pretty much anything that is not Sherlock related. So I thought I’d just rec links related to this awesome little show that has pretty much just eaten my brain the past few weeks.
This is an extremely belated post about A Study In Pink, which means that it’s actually more about the episode in the context to the rest of the series.
Really, if you start thinking about the fact that there will be more Sherlock in the future, then it’s easy to guess that eventually we’ll look back on these episodes and that primarily all three, not just the first one, are about how Sherlock and John’s very unique relationship began and started to develop. It’s actually so obvious that it might not even merit mentioning, except for how in the course of just three it begins, grows, changes, starts to crack around the edges, and ultimately deepens so much.
So I went and decided to just do a quick check to see what there was in the way of Sherlock fanfic, and four days later I’ve neglected this blog in favor of reading MOAR FIC.
To make up for it… screencaps from A Study In Pink! By which I mostly mean lots of Benedict Cumberbatch, because, well, yes.
First series/season of Sherlock finished Sunday (and Moffat confirmed there will be more on an interview today, which you can watch here). I actually watched the final episode Sunday night and loved it, in some ways more than the first ep. They serve different purposes is the thing. It was too late to make a […]
So the plan yesterday was to catch up on this week’s White Collar, but it didn’t end up happening because I was distracted by a shiny new object.
Shiny new object being the BBC’s Sherlock. \:D/
Anyway, I watched the first episode at lunch, and loved it so much that when I got home I watched it again instead of watching White Collar (I will catch up on it! After I watch Sherlock ep 2!).
For those that live under a rock (like me, actually, I didn’t even know about this until Dimmie told me about it), Sherlock is a BBC re-imagining of, obviously, Sherlock Holmes, written by Steven Moffat (of the latest Doctor Who). It’s set in present day London, and just-discharged army doctor John Watson is feeling meh in general about civilian life (his therapist thinks he’s traumatized by the war in Afghanistan and that he should start a blog to get it all out) and looking for a place to live, which is not easy in London with an army pension, and he figures no one will want to share a flat with him. So of course a mutual friend introduces him to someone else that is having a hard time finding a flatmate… a “consulting detective” and self-described “high-functioning sociopath”.
