100% perfection. I can’t believe I haven’t seen this until now.
where has this gif been
One day, John may just punch her.
I know I would if someone continually called my best friend “freak”
This is why I dislike Donovan, it’s got nothing to do with her gender, colour or how well she does her job. It’s this.
Then I would hope you also dislike Sherlock because he deliberately tortures a man, drops another out of a window, laughs when investigating a crime about kidnapped children, makes general unkind and arsey comments to strangers and friends alike, scared the old lady at the Surrey boarding school, continually refers to Anderson as ‘idiot’, drugged his best friend and put him through a traumatic experience with little to no remorse, forces a man with PTSD (or whatever he had) to go to a triggering place and then does an Edmund and denies he’s seen the Hound, also getting excited after Henry almost kills himself because he enjoyed the case, commented on a woman’s sex life therefore attempting to shame her and embarrass her in front of her peers at her place of work, calls murder ‘Christmas’ and belittles everyone he ever interacts with.
Otherwise it would seem you are holding this female poc character to a different standard to the white male character, and being unnecessarily harsh on her for merely reacting to a person who demeans her and her colleagues often and doesn’t show much kindness.
I also want to point out to the op that Sherlock calls Sally’s best friend/lover/colleague ‘idiot’ often. Think about that. Yet I don’t think Sally would descend to the level of violence.
Seriously. Sally is a police officer who CONSTANTLY has a “consulting detective” bombarding her crime scenes and her investigations, insulting her, insulting her co-workers, generally being a patronizing asshole, belittling her and her co-workers as he saunters around the room.
I mean, in the first interaction, REALLY look at the dynamics at play. We have a cis able-bodied affluent privileged presumed-heterosexual white man showing up at this woman of color’s job site where he proceeds to not only insult her, but make “deductions” about her giving blow jobs to a co-worker in front of the rest of her co-workers. This man who is a former drug addict, and would go on to engage in MULTIPLE crimes through the series (including torture, assault, breaking and entering, and whatever the hell drugging people without their knowledge is)
But no, no, Sally is the bad guy here. Fuck that noise.
BBC Sherlock has the potential to be a really interesting, innovative program. To bad they cast the antagonist as the sympathetic protagonist.

i am opening the door. i am stepping outside of my house. i am walking to the airport. i am getting on a plane. i am flying to steven moffat’s house. i am sneaking inside very quietly. i am pooping in every pair of his shoes.
because it’s not like irene adler had a genuine victory or anything. it’s not like she outsmarted sherlock holmes. it’s not like she disguised herself so well that she could literally follow him and hear all of his plans and then topped it off with actually saying ‘goodnight, mr. holmes’ to his face. it’s not like he didn’t even figure it out until he got to her house the next day and found a note explaining all of it.
nah, man, he just thought she was hot.
And we wonder why BBC Adler was such a trainwreck. (No we don’t. We already know.)
/shoutout to people who hate isabela
reblogging for great truth, and also because fuckbagel is the best thing i’ve ever heard
YOU KNOW WHAT
THE FACT THAT IN SHERLOCK THEY HAD MORIARTY STRAP BOMBS TO LIVING PEOPLE AND DIDN’T CARE IF THEY WOULD DIE OR NOT
AND NOW THE FANDOM IS MAKING A LITERAL FUCKING BOMBING INTO “SEE? HE’S BACK!!!!”
THIS ISN’T AN EXCUSE TO MAKE A REFERENCE OF YOUR QUEER BAITING SHITSACK STAIN OF A SHOW
THIS IS REAL FUCKING LIFE
PEOPLE ARE DEAD BECAUSE OF THIS, AND MANY OTHERS ARE INJURED AND PEOPLE ARE SCARED FOR THEIR AND OTHERS’ LIVES
FOR ONE FUCKING DAY JUST NOT MAKE EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR GODAWFUL FANDOM OK
ARE YOU KIDDING ME
omfg the sherlock fandom is the fucking worst
i had a really dumb dream about sherlock last night, and someone in my dream asked if i was sherlock/john’s daughter and i just rolled my eyes and sighed with exasperation the whole time
"just try to keep a low profile, you aren’t exactly a ‘private’ detective anymore"
YOU’RE THE ONE WHO STARTED A FREAKING BLOG WATSON
finally watching the second season of sherlock (dumb fandom has kept me less than enthusiastic about the series really)
so yeah. it is shot digitally, and the color scheme = post-production color editing in digital programs.
Th editing and camera shots are really amazing.
Problem is that, as a Moffat feature, the writing strives too hard to be topical and to elicit laughs. It ends up being eyeroll-worthy. “Laters” and “I’m a fan of your blog,” for example.
The overly digital nature of the way the show is shot, at least for me, takes a lot away from it. It clashes with the story, dialogue, and everything else basically.
The frame rate in the scene where Sherlock and Watson are hitting each other is so distracting. I hate when film speeds make the visuals so jerky.
The style of the show is interesting and fantastic. But it has to meld with the dialogue story, and everything else. And it never comes together. Most of all, the stories themselves are never engaging or interesting enough, nor is the dialogue. So it ends up being full of many disparate elements that never quite gel.
why did i have a dream about sherlock last night
I’M NOT EVEN IN THE FANDOM GUYS
every fandom in one way or another is awful
but at least they’re not the sherlock fandom
getting to the point where i might just never watch the second season of sherlock
sherlock fandom are you okay
MY HANDS ARE OPEN AT THE KEYBOARD…..IM IN THE PROCESS OF WANTING TO CATCH MY EYES AS THEY FALL OUT OF MY HEAD FOR READING THIS……
