sherlock runnin across a road like ‘danger is my middle name, john’
and john jogging after him like ‘sherlock…….ur middle name is sherlock.’
it has loads of references though like it cleverly twists things or uses elements from them instead of adapting one large thing at a time ahhhh
but tbh you’re not gonna get a non-biased answer out of me man I would shag this show if I could
it’s Elementary, the show all the Sherlock cast shat on for no reason other than it was an American version of modern-day Sherlock too hoORAY!! 1
Elementary’s definitely superior to Sherlock in a lot of ways like Sherlock is superior to it in other ways so defo check it out
the only thing I can warn about is that the first few epis are slow and kinda just set up Sherlock as a new char cos the showmakers were super aware that Sherlock’s cast was dogging it big time aw
Okay so lately I’ve heard a lot of talk about the toxicity of johnlock vs. sheriarty but can we just talk about how harmful and toxic John and Mary’s relationship is? I mean, honestly.
when you (who’s totally completely 5000% straight) find out that your 5000% straight bro is engaged
contrary to popular belief, sherlock is not a mysterious emotionless badass. he is, in fact, a sad nerd penguin who loves john watson immensely and is obsessed with science, bees and board games
MOFFAT: It’s nice to have resolved it.
GATISS: So the truth is that when he was little — and obviously Mycroft tormented him about it — is that his dog died, and he totally fell for the idea that Redbeard had gone to live in a happy valley somewhere."
Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, Empire Online [x]
Do you know what the even more hilariously sad thing is? John was supposed to think that Sherlock was being sent off somewhere far away, where he could run free and have tons of detecting fun without him… but he was really being sent to his death.
OMFG Is that why he was so fucking mad about Bluebell? oh god.. my heart.
SHERLOCK: Stapleton. I knew I knew your name.
STAPLETON: I doubt it.
SHERLOCK: People say there’s no such thing as coincidence. What dull lives they must lead.
(He holds up his notebook to her on which he has written a single large word: “BLUEBELL”. She stares at it in amazement as Sherlock watches her face closely.)
STAPLETON: Have you been talking to my daughter?
SHERLOCK (putting his notebook away): Why did Bluebell have to die, Doctor Stapleton?
JOHN (bewildered): The rabbit?
SHERLOCK (to Stapleton, as she stares at him blankly): Disappeared from inside a locked hutch, which was always suggestive.
JOHN: The rabbit?
SHERLOCK: Clearly an inside job. [x]
…So. This is the face of Sherlock when reminded of his most painful childhood pressure point.
That’s not heartwrenching or anything.
