BBC Sherlock

Post by Mbast1 on Tue Jan 05, 2016 6:48 pm

I don't know how this hasn't come up before, but is anyone else a fan of the BBC's Sherlock? I'm going to see the theatrical release of The Abominable Bride tonight, and I'm really looking forward to is.
I think it's odd that this one is set in the Victorian era, but we'll see... More after tonight.

I'm afraid that the nature of this particular episode is such that I can't really discuss it on here until you've seen it. But yes, I too am a fan. In case he doesn't see this thread, so is Tony, who describes Benedict Cumberbatch as "well fit," "dreamy" and "a total sexpot."*






*I may have made this last bit up.

I'm not touching that last part.

I did see it last night, and I think I'm a bit disappointed. I'm going to spoiler the rest of this.

Spoiler:
I think it was too showy, in that I think Moffat was showing off how cool things were. Which I wouldn't normally have issue watching, but since I saw it in the theater there was a segment where he went on and on about it, and I think that sort-of carried over into the show. It was interesting, and fun that this was Sherlock's imagination (of a sort), and I didn't hate it. I just think it was too much show and too little substance. The entire thing took place in his head, in a few minutes, all to figure out that Moriarty IS dead. Yeah, no. Some funny parts, some interesting pieces (him imagining Mycroft eating himself to death), but a bit too much for my tastes.

I'll bet he did Very Happy

I've seen it summarised as "Sherlock gets off a plane and into a car," and "A man explains feminism to a room full of women."

I took my niece with me (along with my gf) and she looked at me when it was clear WHO Mycroft meant when he said they should win. She doesn't like Moffat, but who knows, maybe Gatiss wrote that part?

Still, disappointed. But I thought season 3 was kind of off, anyway. Loved the wedding, but the last episode was just bad. I thought.

Basically, the series has become lost in its mind palaces, like we've gotten lost in our spoiler tags. It needs to start focusing on actual, real, physical things. Like, just dial down the airy-fairy cleverness a bit, so that there's enough real-world stuff going on too.

I tend to agree. I thought it was well done, in itself, and I have yet to see Benzedrine Bandersnatch put in a poor performance, but there was basically no plot there.

Agreed. I think the first season is fantastic, the second less so but still really good (especially the first episode), but I was disappointed by the 3rd. I can only hope this coming season is better.

If they have any sense they will get back to what Mike correctly calls the "fantastic" spirit of the first season, and spend less time ****ing about in mind palaces. IMAO.
