Spoiler about sherlock and the abominable bride and spoilers about the new season.
First we got a little easter egg as the first scene is the same as the modern version. Redundant or brilliant? (this will be my recurring theme for this article, I guess). Thanks for the remainder early one, because I had totally forgot about all that (was it 3 or 4 or even 5 years since the first episode?).
The issue with Sherlock is you can get disappointed anyway: when the issue is too simple (yes the enemy are women who wants to vote, follow the damn thing already (30minutes in) or when it is too hard (a dead woman, either someone is lying or it is too far stretched …).
Like in that one, I hope the angry guy at the morgue is a reminder of sexual tension and not the culprit...
It is a recurrent theme in thriller, I just read one, everything pointed to one person and it was not her, disappointed ? Yes and now, that would have been to simple, but at the same time they try so hard to sell her it felt bitter in the end.
Also the recurrent theme of staged death, I haven’t seen the last season but I know he is not coming, that’s good.
I don’t recall whether we had an explanation to Sherlock “suicide” or not, and now a dead body again… brilliant or redundant? I am not a old grump so I would say brilliant, I can’t fathom to find one explanation to this kind of story, even though I dreamt of writing such story “from the grave” murder, so let alone “3” (2 so far, I spoiled myself the last season by mistake).
The body (half episode already) is moving like a fake one… not sure what to make of it. But the murder is pretty silly, why would you let someone alone if he is in dangers? Just do the usual, keep him under surveillance and kill him in the dark, or a heart attack.
Are we still on the moriarty stuff? “miss me”. I am not too much aware of when this episode was released, but that sounds again… redundant or brilliant, you choose.
Also I don’t know if this is an original story like the baskerville episode or if it is completely new, maybe someone will be able to tell me (or I’ll google it myself).
I am on the fence about the brother, I like the “I am dying of being too fat”, I like the “I am superior to you lil broda” BUT what about the whole “I already solved the case, I just need someone to confirm, and to do so I will of course not give my version of the story”? This seems arrogant, and in a fiction why not, but let’s think about it for a second… people are DYING asshat!!
1 hour and at this point I am scared of a “hallucination” “lies” solving, which would be a let down, but at the same time there is something fishy… I am too arrogant to fully enjoy the situation, even though this is the beauty of thrillers, always a little surprise at the end (I only read thrillers, 1 every month on average).
WOW WTF you don’t do that! Back to the future, but why, now I am even more confused and angry, is the story a lie, what is happening…
Brilliant or arrogant? Maybe a bit of both, we are the fools, we are the halfwit following sherlock, now we don’t know which is part of the main season which is not. That little scene about the jet might be everything or nothing… I am lost, I think that was the point.
And here you go, been fooled all along by a simple trick HA! (I don’t know the name “chekhov” gun or something, never had a more fitting name)
Come on now don’t fail me, don’t put all women and don’t but the angry shemale doctor, don’t do that! HOLDING MY BREATH…;
Well they did it… I should post that to “Iamverysmart” I guess. (nah it is just sheer luck helped by a thriller passion, random detail picked up and gambled on, I am never that lucky usually, I repeat this was random, but it always feels good to win at a luck game for some reason).
PEEK A BOO NERD, are we spiraling down into his madness again? Is that the little trick they are gonna use… brilliant or redundant? Not quite sure (also it felt like many expressions were “memes” in that episodes, I am not sure maybe I consumed too much of them lately).
Wait, how did they the coffin out of the ground, I could barely manage to get out of such a deep hole!
I am just admitting it now, at this point I don’t even know what they are looking for? The second body? But why? (also he did just reveal how they get the fake suicide, resembling body? That sounds like a cheat to me to!)
There is even the little “honk honk” at the end (I got this meme on a forum I go)! (that was uninentional meme, the best kind of meme ?)
Well it kinda felt like a fuck you, but at the same time a reassuring stuff, I don’t know.
I am still not sure about the fake suicide (did we got an official explanation for that? My memory…) At least moriarty is dead, no fallacies here, good good good.
I guess that was a good episode, a thriller which make you the fool in the end (but come on, don’t play with my feelings like that would you, the whole this is a dream, this is not, then it is, but it is not, because it is, and blah blah blah).
I should watch the last season this week, I hope it’s good.
