(Sorry about the lateness of this post, but I haven’t had internet access in or ever an life has been hectic. Anyway, enjoy!)
The long awaited and much talked about series three of the hit BBC TV show Sherlock has finally arrived and ended, leaving us with another dazzling hiatus. The three movie length episodes have premiered already in the UK and luckily for me, I was able to sream them over the internet via a best friend of mine, so I saw the episodes before they even had achance in the USA.
I’m not gong to spoil it for anyone, but holy satan they are insane! It’s a roller coaster ride of angst, overwhelming happiness, shock, and one-sided johnlock that is so obvious it’s almost transparent.
I spent pretty much the entire time screaming at my laptop and wandering why the hell what was happening was actually happening. Sherlock was already my favorite character. He has charisma, intelligence (obviously), personality, unimaginable beauty, and wit. Now that I’ve seen the episodes, I can confim that Sherlock will always be my favorite character. After the fall, he is emotionally distressed and vulnerable (as vulnerable as Sherlock can be). Mycroft is slowly inching his way into the second spot, because I have absolutely loved his character arc that Mark Gatiss (actor and co-creator). Mycroft shows a lot more of his personality in the recent three episodes rather thasn the first six.
The johnlock in each and every episode, despite Mary’s prescence, is tangible and unfortunately one-sided. Sherlock is so clearly in love with John and the fact that he has realized this and now knows it’s too late is extremely painful for those of us watching. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate Mary because of my ship, but I just wish Sherlock could be happy with the only person he will probably ever love. His emotions are all over the place and the way Benedict Cumberbatch is able to show that Sherlock has regressed emotionally after being alone for two years trying to dismantle the network is amazing.
Tumblr went absolutely nuts an my dash was flooded with hundreds of thousands of gifsets, fic recs, fanarts, and johnlock theories in just a half hour! I love this fandom so much it’s ridiculous.
Well another series has gone and passed. I have heard rumors that season four is premiering this Christmas so it will be fun surviving yet another hiatus with my fellow Sherlockians!
