in which Sherlock falls many times more


Someone over at Reddit made a cut-out, a photo of just Sherlock falling from the St. Bart's roof with no background or anything. Other Reddit users then photoshopped him into various scenarios. Sherlock diving for a fly ball. Sherlock river-dancing. This is the funniest, most bizarre thing I've seen in a while. Do check it out if you've got a bit of time to waste.

Also (and spoilers for both "The Empty Hearse" and the Sherlock DVD extra "The Fall", I guess), apparently some cast members said the third version of how Sherlock survived was the real one. I had worked out an elaborate argument for just why this idea was so wrong, why that method simply wouldn't work, before I realized I was being an Anderson. And not the good, keeping-Sherlock-alive-through-raw-faith kind we saw in the Christmas minisode but the don't-talk-out-loud-you-lower-the-IQ-of-the-whole-street, slightly overobsessive Anderson.

But it bothered me enough to work out why that couldn't possibly be right. Luckily according to discussions I've seen, other cast members emphasized Sherlock was "possibly" lying to Anderson.

All of which goes to prove, those guys know how to keep an audience interested over two years of hiatus, even after the slightly disappointing last series.

As much as I found it amusing, the more I think about "The Empty Hearse", the angrier I get. Gatiss took the easy way out. It's like that "story I never wrote meme" - wonderfully freeing, and lots of fun, because the stories don't have to make sense, be in character, or relate in any way to a world we've already created. *feels old and curmudgeonly*

You are, at worst, reacting no more curmudgeonly than this thirty-one year old. Then again I always was an old soul. There are bits of that show that I really like, but given how few episodes we actually get... yeah. Curmudgeonly is not at all an out-of-line reaction.

Btw, I still want to scream at Team Moffat about the proper technique of snipers not moving to follow their targets and so if you run around a building with a !@#$ing blue bouncy-castle, just because he can't see doesn't mean they won't. The burdens of being from a military family.

But as I have quite a queue of fix-it fics planned, it may be a while before I get to this one. :-)
