Hi my hot cute girly geeks and boy geeks of course. If you follow me on twitter you would have noticed one of my favourite shows returned last night on TV. That’s right, Sherlock is back. And this is not so much a review as well as more of a, what the f*ck did happen last night. Oh and beware of spoilers.
First of all, I urge you all to watch the episode, no seriously, before you read this, go watch it. I don’t care how you watch it, but watch it! Now stop reading and go hunt down that episode.
So you watched it now. Well done. Bravo! Are you baffled and crazy like I am? You’re welcome.
Let me explain a thing first, most of us waited for 2 years to get to watch season 3, I was lucky, I only had to wait a year and a half since I watched season 1 and 2 a bit later. But still, 2 freaking years! We are known as the fandom that waited and guess what; we’re all crazy as a result. Do we mind? Not at all.
My first thought upon watching that episode was like I have been watching a real life fanfiction. Things happened, shippy things happened, OTP’s became real… and the fandom… it exploded.
For example, this happened:
Oh and don’t forget this:
And I swear, in that moment, the fandom was Anderson:
I think Mark Gatiss came up with the ideas thanks to this:
And can we talk about Sherlock and Mycroft’s parents for a moment? They are played by Benedict’s actual parents!
Oh and I think we have a new fandom T-shirt as well:
Hey look, it’s captain Martin du Crieff:
Can we take a moment to talk about the hair:
And I love how the two of them love to play games (sorry, couldn’t find a picture).
The episode contained everything we wanted as a fandom, I think we all laughed, cried, cursed, grieved, got angry, fell in love, and every other human possible emotion in the range we got.
After the three episodes have aired, I will try to do some justice and post proper reviews.
For now I leave you with the short wait until Sunday, when the next episode airs and me watching this episode over and over again!
Love, your own hot cute girly geek, Mendy
