I still think it was a no, shit sherlock.

I can take and not be upset about someone's not liking this. Afer all, the FSM Star Wars community have always been top notch in their tolerance and understanding whenever I've railed against that fanchises's lesser virtues. smile

All will be forgiven if you'll just watch that classical guitar video of the Sherlock music. wink

Picked up the dvd for The Abominable Bride today in what has been a dreary, soaky-wet day that would make London jealous. wink

Looking forward to the bonus material, to say nothing of watchng the excellent special itself once again.

Still don't have series three yet, though!

I finally watched The Abominable Bride and I enjoyed it a LOT. Tremendous fun and a step in the right direction after the "troubled" series three which I will nevertheless give another try now that the hype of that particular epoch in BBC Sherlock history has died down.

Remind me never to read anything from media outlets or internet messageboards about stuff I enjoy. wink

How anyone could even be remotely outraged or offended by anything in TAB must be either an oversensitive, built-to-be-offended Millennial or a reactionary lout. The notion that there was "mansplaining" or rampant political correctness is absurd.

One of the many things I've learned on the olde internet is that movies or tv shows that receive the most backlash are ones which use narration, black and white photography, flashbacks and/or non-linear timelines, have downbeat endings, or movies and shows made by people that the mass media "tells" us to hate, and of course movies and shows where they "talk a lot." All of these tend to receive the most negative and irrational criticism from the general and dopey general public.

It really makes me despise the "social aspects" of the internet all the more (except for the FSM Board). smile



A more specific review of TAB to follow...



Glad you enjoyed it,Jim. I thought it was brilliantly conceived....and, we’ve all had weird dreams like that, haven’t we?

I didn’t get the misogyny/feminist furore either ???

Amanda Abbington was on TV this morning (talking about her other show “Mr Selfridge”) and she touched on “Sherlock” and said that she didn’t see what all the fuss was about either. If you read her Twitter page, you’ll see that she’s not one to be messed around with, nor suffer “insults" of that kind without speaking her mind. So, can we drop that one now,please?

Regarding your following post about the drugs....i’ve only watched “Bride” once, but, didn’t Watson & Holmes speak about " the 7% Solution" ??

I was referring to the heretofore otherwise watered-down portrayal of Sherlock's drug use. It's refreshing that Holmes is hitting the hard stuff now. wink
