Am I the only one who think that Sherlock could be the one who hired Watson as his sober companion? Posing as his father? Odd that she hasn't met his father, and he would never openly ask for help...
Being a fairly avid reader of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and watching some of the old movies, I am not disappointed with both this show and Sherlock on BBC. I think both are done quite well and I do enjoy the modern twists to them. While there is no way that Watson and Holmes will become romantically involved anytime soon, I do hope down the line, possibly even a couple of seasons in, we will see a romance happen. Or at least sex. They do have good chemistry. I am referring to Elementary not the BBC Sherlock. LOL
I'm definitely in the minority here, but I found the episode both boring and offensive. If someone was prying into my past private life like that, I would stop them. I do not believe that it is necessary for her job as a drug tester to know everything about him, and the intrusion is upsetting and (to me) obscene. Since I don't like the actors, particularly, and the stories are not all that fascinating, and I am not an admirer of Aiden Quinn either, I guess that's it for this one. I was evaluating; I am done. You all enjoy it. I shall be reading a book. Maybe one by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Great episode.An just a throw out there...Natalie Dormer from "The Tudors" (Anne Boleyn) would make a fantastic Irene!!!Shes a wonderful actress and she's so pretty and believable.
Do you know what the problem with the BBC Sherlock (and English shows in general) is? They do not do long term and they like long shows ie tv movies. I liked the BBC Sherlock but for both series I found the second episode to be boring. As a tv show I much prefer Elementary and so far I think they have done a good job in all episodes (but that maybe because I like detective shows lol). I don't compare the 2.
What happened to the coffee mug?
Did the partner plant the coffee mug?
Is the captain going to do something? He's crossing an ethical line. Of course, in the end, the bad guy stays in prison, but the evidence was planted...
Re: Irene not being dead. I haven't gone over the original story in a while, but I seem to remember she faked her death at least once and even had Sherlok fooled. I know that's how they did it in the BBC series. So I'd say it was a definite possibility.
I don't think the purpose of each episode is to figure out the killer because since the beginning of the series it has been ridiculously apparent. You're suppose to figure out the connection and observe Sherlock's process, thus getting to know more about him. Sherlock is the great mystery, not the weekly crimes of passion, greed, etc al. I love this show as is, and it's a great companion for "Person of Interest".
Sorry CPC - but the BBC's Sherlock IS better than this one.
I think people need to stop wanting this show to be about Irene and Moriarty. It doesn't have to be that. And people shouldn't be disappointed if they don't take it there.
And no way are Holmes and Watson going to become romantic. The showrunners have already said this.
