So is this a stand-alone movie or a special for the series? You can't really claim both. Decide already.https://trakt.tv/shows/sherlock/seasons/0/episodes/9
That was brilliant, how can it be rated as anything less than 10.
It's great as always ! Sherlock never disappoints meThe best part of this episode (movie) was the funny scene of John Watson
Brilliant. The superposed layers of the present, the past and Holmes' mind palace make for a great story. Not only is the main case interesting (though a little weak), the way it connects with what we can assume is the real world is genius.
Even if loosely related to the story, the little interludes facing Moriarty show the two actors at the top of their game and are a pleasure to watch.
The Victorian Mycroft is a very interesting take, betting on his own life with Sherlock. It is ever present in Sherlock's interior world that he's inferior to him, much more than in real life, where Mycroft is also much more caring.
Great quote from Watson: "I can break every bone in your body while naming them"
Having discovered very late that this episode existed, I can see it leaves so many little hints of season 4. Very clever.
I really don't like it when shows do dream states. I guess I missed out on the original spirit it was intended - as a Christmas special but it sucked for me.
I'm not even commenting in the gigantic amount of Johnlock in his brain, the man ships himself with his friend, huh?
I wish I could write fanfics as good as the ones that roll on Sherlock's head. I mean... Maybe I should do some drugs and try the whole "Mind Palace" concept for once!
Not my favorite, but I surely ADORE the victorian setting.
