Sherlock: Season 2
« on: May 06, 2012, 09:11:33 PM »
I just saw the first episode of Season 2 of Sherlock: 'A Scandal in Belgravia'. I can't believe the chemistry between Sherlock and Adler. It hurt at times watching it.. I was laughing so hard my ribs ached.

Ah, well. At least the code was pretty easy to figure out.

Weeeeellllll.. it's on iTunes as a season pass.. so this ep will probably pop sometime this week. (Or simply watch it again if your PBS is like mine and replaying it)

Oh you poor people. You have The Reichenbach Fall to live through.

It's one of those things you don't wish characters through again. I have it on DVD but am putting off watching because I don't think I can quite face it again yet, and it's been MONTHS since it aired here.

Baskerville is great though. Really like the big eared actor guy... whose name I should really look up...

Sherlock is amazing.

Has some very awesome lines. Love the whole thing to bits - will rewatch all of the others a billion times. But not Reichenbach. Didn't mean 'you poor people' as in because it's so awful. Just... you will see soon enough.  And then we have to wait a WHOLE YEAR!

Definitely love the series, but I've got a very strong feeling that the actor playing Sherlock really, really wants to play the Doctor.  May just be me, though.

I missed out on the first episode of season 2 - the one that involved Irene Adler as a dominatrix (mmm?!) but the next two I did see and they were amazing, great tv. The scripts are as good as in the first series, almost flawless, with lots of small touches, and believable in terms of the characters. The acting, sound and camera work are wonderful too. I love it that Sherlock doesn't highlight and write in big type, it expects its viewers to get it and to think for themselves, and so many films and tv series today do feel they have to push things into the obvious (The Tudors seemed to write things in capitals and make the characters trumpet at us all the time).

Reichenbach - yes, I would agree that was a very tough watch, at least the final tthirty minutes. It becomes tragical because it's so close to how the media function today, and how some of the media community live off hyping people up and then tossing them into the dirt. You can't watch Sherlock being challenged by his adversary and by the media without thinking of the Murdoch/NewsCorp scandals, the coverage of Tiger Woods' marriage breakdown and time-out, that kind of thing.
