BBC series coming to DVD perhaps. Or Blu-ray.

My problem with mysteries is they have little repeat value. I've read or seen so many I can pretty much flesh out the tropes without seeing them through. I had the same problem with horror movies, my Blockbuster was renting the VHS for 99 cents and I spend a few dollars a day one summer, walking there and back ala` Subway Jared.

yeah, I know. don't remind me.

however sad it is, it is still refreshing when a series ends before it gets stale.

and I would love to see some spin-off mini tv-movies maybe.

there are so many great characters and story lines (and family lines).

such a great show all around.

Unlikely.

You know anything about magic? You never do the same illusion twice in a row unless you want people to catch on to how it was done.

They've used that trick.  They can't use it again.

But here's something: series three and series four were both green-lit at the same time, before the second series ran.  So they had the chance to plan for series four when they killed (or perhaps, didn't kill) Moriarty.

Was I the only one who was disappointed by this season? Yeah the 2nd episode was good but I felt that the 3rd was a bust because of the ending was not very Holmes like..Dont want to spoil it but those who have seen it know what I mean. But then again I can see why Holmes was angry. The first episode just set up his return. Anyway I look forward to the 4th season alot

No, I was disappointed as well.  I'd come to the same conclusion that they eventually did at the end of the finale within the first 10 minutes of it.  My only question was why in the hell hadn't anyone done it sooner.

I don't know. I don't see a Sherlock set making it through to production. Anything licensed I've seen that's made it through the Cuusoo gauntlet so far has had extremely wide appeal. Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Minecraft. All properties that have millions upon millions of fans. Sherlock is popular yeah, but nowhere NEAR the popularity of the others. I mean, the FTL designs had some really great mini ships and mini figs, but FTL is still a niche fanbase compared to anything else.

Does he kill him with a rubber bullet (knocks him out) and they tie him in a dungeon? Or some shiat?

I though just plain killing him was weak too. He even said he was a business man. Sherlock couldn't make him a sweet business proposition?

End spoilers!

His orders were to destroy the files, and there was only one single way of doing that.

I don't know where people got the idea that Holmes was adverse to violence; he frequently tells Watson to bring his service revolver along, and he's supposed to be trained in martial arts.

/I strongly suspect the abhorrence to violence comes from Jeremy Brett's version of the character, as Brett also got a scene written where Sherlock kicks his drug habit, something which doesn't come into canon until "The Seven Percent Solution".

I think some people get that, but some don't seem to let it dawn on them. For starters this custom job is fairly old (the reason Mary's not included is she hadn't been introduced by the time this first started making the rounds). There's also nothing particularly LEGO-y about it. The action in the show is all about the characters running. It's great custom-fodder, but I doubt LEGO is gonna devote much time to mass-producing "room with weird wallpaper" vs. an action movie reference. I don't think they should either, though if they ever find an excuse to do Sherlock and Watson minifigs, I'm all over it.
 
2014-02-05 05:40:31 AM  
Wow, so many people who haven't read the source material, or have this imaginary perception of Holmes. I have no issues with season 3, because the end of it ties neatly into what happened in the first episode of season one.
 
2014-02-05 05:47:54 AM  
Sure - but we watch Holmes to watch him be clever. Not to have him just shoot dudes.

He also never verified that there wasn't an archive. Given that he'd been played like a violin, this could have been a lie (Holmes was so sure that there was an archive that he took the risk to visit the house with the laptop).

narkor: He also never verified that there wasn't an archive.


There wasn't an archive; there was a room with a chair in it.  Read up on "Mind Palaces" and you have some understanding of what they were showing you.

It's not a new trope; Sherlock used it once, but I first ran across it in fiction at least a decade ago, when Thomas Harris used it to explain why Hannibal Lecter had no problem spending years in a tiny, and how he was able to draw "The duomo as seen from the belevedere" from memory.

Also, Magnussen says that he has no need of physical copies, as he can print whatever he wants.  And, under the libel rules in the UK, that's pretty much true.  It's how the papers over there got away with taping people phones and listening to their messages, as they're under no obligation to show their sources for anything they publish

You know that's pretty much straight out of the books right?  Well, Holmes lets someone else shoot him and then burns all his papers.

I personally suspect it was Mycroft that set up the cam feed, in order to bring Sherlock back from the mission to Eastern Europe.  Mycroft tells him to not accept the job at Christmas, because 'Also, your loss would break my heart,' and knew that Moriarty's 'return' would trump the punishment for Magnussen's murder. And that's all I saw in the episode - Mycroft wanting to keep his little brother safe.

Can't wait for series 4; I love this show.

In the books Moriarty has at least one brother (although Conan Doyle named them all James, because he could give a fark about keeping the stories straight).  There are also several good fan theories that Andrew Scott's character is just the "face" of Moriarty, and the real brains behind the operation have yet to be revealed.

Spoilers...

No you were not.  I thought Season Three was aweful, and in many ways actually idiotic.  They strayed too far from Doyle... Suddenly Sherlock Homes is James Bond/Jack Bauer/Doctor Who/International Man of Mystery solving Terrorist plots?  Mary as a Ex- Assassin?   And John falls in Love and Marries her, because he subconsciously understood how dangerous she was?  Homles thinks it's funny to humiliate John, and is so immature that he can't come up with a wedding speech?  Oh, and they are not bringing back Moriarty.  It will likely be his "pet" that was mentioned in season 1.  Remember, all they showed was a picture of him...  If they do bring him back, then Moffat has jumped the shark... nuked the frig.... FUBAR,

If you know anything about Sherlock Holmes, you would know that was the ONLY possible outcome of that situation.

The tabloids got away with there crap because they bribed the police and threatened to bury any one who took them one. One editor even told an MP to shut up about press intrusion or they would splash every allegation they could find on the centre pages and destroy his carrier even if he sued them successfully for libal.

Actually, on second viewing, everything Sherly did was just an act to get confirmation as to the exact nature of the archive.  The scene with the glasses especially, Sherlock was way to stupid and "lol morphine" in that scene for it to be anything but an act.  He slowly and surely narrows down the possibilities until he's absolutely sure, then makes the only logical move, all to fulfill his vow never to let John down (great wedding speech).

Ubiquitous homeless guy: He slowly and surely narrows down the possibilities until he's absolutely sure, then makes the only logical move, all to fulfill his vow never to let John down (great wedding speech).


Deductive reasoning, doing what Watson would readily do in that situation (in the books Sherlock is frequently coming up with ways that keep Watson from simply going round and kicking the door in) because he knows that Mycroft needs him more than anything?  Yup.  It's all pretty close to the original.

The one thing that has been a little lacking is that in the books, one of the reasons Sherlock does so much work for his brother is that Mycroft is profoundly lazy.  He more or less runs the British government, but he can't be arsed to leave his club unless the Queen calls.  Gatiss is writing and playing a much more action Mycroft, even more so now that he's decided to start working out!
