Sherlock 3x01 - "The Empty Hearse" Episode Discussion [US Air Date: 19.01.14]


3x01 The Empty Hearse
Two years after the devastating effects of The Reichenbach Fall,
Dr John Watson has got on with his life.
New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon.
But, with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack,
Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave
with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him.
It's what his best friend wanted more than anything,
but for John Watson it might well be a case of 'be careful what you wish for'.
If Sherlock thinks everything will be just as he left it though, he's in for a very big surprise.
[x] - (Careful, spoilish pics behind the link)

yeah me too, maybe they think no matter what no one is going to be satisfied so they'll brush over it.

what if they didn't actually think of a way that could've been pulled off? What if we're getting messed about without a real answer?

I was under the impression that the explanation he gave to Anderson was the right one? Which was basically the explanation literally everyone in the world had lmao.

A fun episode anyway, loved Mary, she seems great. The restaurant scene was hilarious, and it was nice to see John and Sherlock back together solving crimes.

Major disappointment on the Molly Hooper front though, but I've long ago stopped hoping that Moffat and Gatiss could write her well, so I can't say I was that surprised, unfortunately.

Sherlock was nicest to Molly, like light years nicer to her than John.

^ My disappointment doesn't come from Sherlock's attitude. I agree that he was nice to her (he should be, she saved his life). I just really hate the fact that she hasn't moved on at. all. and that she's still presented as the lovesick puppy who's willing to eat the crumbs he'll throw her. The Sherlock copycat she's marrying made me SO uncomfortable. I just hoped she would've moved on, you know. She's worth so much better than just being the lovesick fangirl.

I'm disappointed, because I didn't really care for it.

I think a lot of that is my own fault, though. My expectations were the highest they've ever been for an episode of TV -- ever. All of the in-advance reviews were so gushing. I seriously, seriously couldn't wait. I just knew I was in for something mind-blowing.

I liked a few things, but I felt it dragged at times, and Sherlock and John's reunion felt way, way too rushed.

I'll come back and post more in-depth thoughts once I've had a chance to rewatch the episode. Maybe I'll like it better the second time around.

Looking forward to it!

I didn't really recognise Sherlock. His jokes on John very tasteless and sickening.
