I love this show so much, and obviously, a great many of you probably do as well.
That’s why I had to take a moment to recognize another blogger who frequently comments on Sherlock, and who also has a magnificent gift for insight. She truly offers a unique perspective on a variety of shows and movies.
Sherlock happens to be one of them.
First of all, you are probably aware that tonight’s two-hour episode of “Sherlock” may not only be the season final, but perhaps the series final.
Sure, the series may have run its course, but when it was good it was very good, and if this is the end I think we all hope it offers a satisfying conclusion.
Back in 2010 “Sherlock” made superstars out of its leads Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, both of whom are practically everywhere now, and largely the reason for such speculation.
Each episode features marvelous deduction sequences which often move so fast, it requires repeat viewings to catch all the crucial and important details.
With two years in-between each series, fans have plenty of time to review each episode!
Mind you, not every episode has been pure genius.
Sometimes the writing for the show has been a little cluttered—like in my attic—but it consistently offers plenty of twist and turns to keep the show refreshing and entertaining.
And unlike my attic writing, the writing on Sherlock actually offer stories which lead to rational conclusions!
However, I’ll continue to work on solving that little problem—but don’t hold your breath.
But back to the blogger whose talent I wish to recognize.
Her name is Andrea, and her blog is named “Crime and Relative Dimension in Space” and here’s the link to it https://crimeandrelativedimensioninspace.com/2017/01/14/a-few-subjective-truths-about-sherlock-series-4/
Andrea offers some of the best in-depth writing on shows and movies I’ve ever read.
The writing on Sherlock offers truly OUTSTANDING material to review. Not only does her writing uncover a wonderful range of emotions in the characters, but her writing also presents what might be going on inside their heads.
All this she beautifully expounds on while touching on each of the characters true motivations. She expresses their sense of humor, devoted friendship, and of course… that cool sound deductive reasoning Sherlock dishes out per each episode.
She writes as if she were actually in the minds of Mark Gattis and Steven Moffat when they were scripting the material for the show. She’s that good!
Although, Sherlock may be coming to an unbearable end tonight (hopefully a special movie now an then would be nice), I’m hoping Andrea’s comprehensive writing will not, as it offers comprehensive background to Sherlock and other shows.
Her blog also provides insights into novels, soundtracks, games and movies, each with plenty of thoughtful information to critically digest on those subjects.
So again, please check out her blog…
I really think you’ll enjoy it.
