sherlock, finally [Nov. 19th, 2010|09:32 pm]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

Saw the first Sherlock episode. Had some quibbles, but overall quite fun. Not sure if I like the added graphics. They work very nicely, but I think I dislike that kind of fussiness. As everyone has said, what a nice 21st century update to the story.

The whole do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend conversation was soooo awkward and just weird. I wish it was shorter. It was unnatural and felt like fan service.

The cabby as killer was obvious after a while, yet no one including Sherlock picked it up for too long. It was a bit annoying, frankly. Wish the whole bit at Sherlock's room didn't drag on so long.

Did Watson *really* have to kill the cabby? It seemed like gratuitous murder.

The good stuff of course has to include Sherlock doing his quick summary of how he knows what he knows, and I love how "Harry Watson" was actually John's sister.

They really did pick the perfect guy to play Sherlock, didn't they? The actor's name just makes it that much better.

"I'm in shock, I have the blanket!" (or something like that) is such an awesome line. XD;

I've heard the second episode is not nearly as awesome as 1 or 3, so I think I'll watch it tomorrow or something.

I feel like reading fanfic now....Though I suppose I should watch the other two episodes first to avoid being spoiled.

Yes, yes, you dfinitely should wait with the fanfics until you've seen it all. And episode three is the best, IMHO :)

I know, but it's hard to not look for fanfics....It's even harder not to click on links to recs on the flist. :P

episode two has nice moments but a lot of moments that are not so nice.

Episode 3 is the best of the bunch...and I really love the actor doing Sherlock... the funny thing is that I heard him before I saw him (he's the narrator on two series I recently watched).

I will get to seeing it this weekend because there's only three, after all. I've heard the third episode is the best (and people loved the reveal of who Moriarty is).

I found the girlfriend/boyfriend thing quite funny actually, still makes me laugh when I think about it. Benedict Cumberbatch is very awesome and tall lol :) There is some great fic out there but def wait till you see the other two.

I was good and avoided reading more until I watched the other two. Having only three episodes made it easy to catch up. XD

so true haha :) I almost wish I hadn't watched the last episode b/c of the cliffhanger and having to wait like a year to find out what happens. Am trying not to think about it :)
