Dear Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir_Arthur_Conan_Doyle

Dear Sir Arthur Conan Doyle,

Thank you.

Having read of couple of the stories and watched many movie and Tv show adaptations I want to thank you for inspiring some of the greatest shows and movies.

I know this many be difficult for you to hear, seeing how you killed off your own character because you became tired of him. And to make matters worse he was so popular that people wanted him back so you had to keep writing about Sherlock Holmes to satisfy fans and to make money.

While I know you were frustrated and probably irritated by the idea of only being known for Sherlock Holmes, let me reassure you it could be worse.

You could be known as being the writer of Twilight. You could be known as the writer of 50 shades of Grey. You could be known as someone who was responsible for the deaths of millions (like Hitler, Stalin, etc.)

Instead you are known as the writer of Sherlock Holmes.

I hope one day to inspire people to the point where they create numerous movie and tv adaptations, inspire many stories to be written (whether they are fanfiction or actually published), I hope to inspire like you have inspired.

So thank you Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Sincerely,

A Sherlock Fan.

My Thoughts on “Spoilers”

im gonna troll you so hard

I may tick people off when it comes to this, but I don’t really care. I am kind of irritated.

I know that when a new episode of my favorite TV Show, a new book to my favorite series, or a sequel to a movie I enjoyed has come out. I know there will be this crazy thing that will pop up on the internet called spoilers.

I also know that if I start getting into a series that has been around for a while there will be lots of fansites on the internet that could possibly spoil it for me. As a result I don’t go looking for it till I have caught up. I am okay with that.

And if a series is older than 10 years I shouldn’t have to post spoilers in the title. I shouldn’t have to post spoilers in the article at all.

But apparently on reddit you have to .

Even if the series is 16 years old….

Really come on now.

When I am getting into a series and I know it is old; I don’t go looking online. If I do, I know I am doing it at my own risk. If I am just getting into a series that is brand new, if a new episode has come, out and I haven’t seen it yet; I will avoid those websites in the meantime until I have seen the episode. It is a lot easier to do than you think.

I have missed a lot concerning Once Upon A Time lately. Due to my facebook feed all I know is that the Wicked Witch is involved. That is it. I don’t know anything about it.

When I have missed new episodes from Doctor Who, Once Upon A Time, Sleep Hollow, Game of Thrones, etc. you know what I do? I do this amazing thing called don’t look and don’t search for it. I don’t go looking for things on tumblr, pinterest, etc. If something pops up while I’m on there I do this amazing thing where I ignore it. I don’t read it, I just click away from it.

I know crazy right.

Now when I am talking among friends in person I have more discretion because well even if they cover their ears there is not much they can do about it. Instead I talk privately about with the friends who are in the know or I ask if that person cares if I spoil it for them.

Most of them don’t, a few do. It’s cool.

What happens if what happened on the internet happened in the real world, where people actually interact face to face.

I am in a bookstore or cafe talking about a new episode with friends. It is just a conversation between the two of us. All of a sudden someone comes up to me and says ‘you just spoiled that episode for me!’ You should have said spoilers!’ ‘I wasn’t talking to you though and you didn’t have to listen in’, I say. ‘Still though you can’t go around talking about it and spoiling for everyone,’ says whiny fan(girl/boy).

See how ridiculous that is?

In all honestly though I don’t know what is so hard about not looking for information related to your fandom. My father does it all the time. I do it all the time, and so does my mother. We are all Geeks. If they sees any article related to TV Shows and yes even movies that they are interested in, they will do this crazy thing where they ignores it and they don’t read and or watch youtube videos online, or look up anything related, unless they don’t care. Which sometimes they don’t.

I do the exact same thing. I don’t fanboy/fangirl rage at someone for spoiling something, especially since, I went looking at the topic in relation to said fandom in the first place. I can understand it may be a little more “difficult” when you are subscribed and or following that person. Usually the titles though are a pretty good giveaway of what they are talking about. I follow so many geek related sites and I have yet to have the entire episode of Game of Thrones spoiled for me. It has only happened once. Once!

Big example. I have’t seen the current season of Game of Thrones. I accidentally saw something about the purple wedding and I only know that…..

SPOILER ALERT

.

You have been warned

.

Are you sure you want to go further

.

.

Fine I am not responsible….

.

.

.

SOMEONE DIES

Honestly that shouldn’t be a surprise to:

  • those who have read the books
  • those who have watched the season so far
  • those who know that George R.R. Martin loves killing people more so than Moffat.
    (Imagine if they did an episode together…)

OH the Horrors!

I am not against warning people about spoiler related things, but there is a limit. Here is what I will post spoilers on…

I will still post spoilers on things that are:

  • The episode just aired
  • New books in a series that just came out
  • Movie sequel just came out
  • you get the idea….

But I won’t post spoilers on:

  • Movies (especially if the movie is based on a book- sorry I am no sorry- that is not happening)
  • Movies that have been in existence for more than a year
  • Book series that have been out longer than a year
  • New Bestselling Books (have to be about a year old)
  • TV Shows that are over in general
  • TV Shows Season that are over (like once the 4th Season of Game of Thrones is over- all bets are off)
  • Games- this just won’t happen

That is my stance because frankly if I have to put a spoiler alert on every single thing I am posting, it will take way too much time. And that is a little overkill.

So be warned anytime you see anything fandom related on my page. You have been warned.

Season 4 Theories & What I would Like to See

So at the end of the last episode of Sherlock Season 3 we got a little surprise.

“Miss Me?”

So although we haven’t been given anything from Moffat or Gatiss about Series 4, already theories are flying around.

Some things to remember before I go into my theories:

  • They get ideas from the books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  • And books not by him as well as long as they are related to Sherlock
  • As well as movie and tv show adaptations that are not related to the books

Here are some of my theories for Series 4:

  • It could be Moriarty, but I don’t believe it is. Yes, I know Sherlock survived the fall so it is possible that  I believe it could be a brother of Moriarty. I don’t think it is Moran, because he was arrested at the end of the first episode (yes that guy is Lord Moran).
  • Could it be The Woman instead of Moriarty’s brother? Either way we will probably get an episode where she at least makes an appearance.
  • I still think Mary will die. People may not like it, but I think it is possibility. If she is to die I hate to propose this but my first thought is the she would die giving birth.
  • We will learn more about Mary next season. In fact her past might continue to catch up to her.
  • The classic London Red Bus will be involved. Moffat and Gatiss were on a bus when they mapped out Season 4 & 5. It would be cool to see them incorporate something like that.

Sherlock Cases I would like to see:

  • The Adventure of the Devil’s Foot
  • The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist
  • The Adventure of the Proiry School
  • The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez
  • The Adventure of Abbey Grange

What cases would you like to see in the next Sherlock season? What cases would you like to see used in the next season?

Let me know it the comments below?

TV Show Series Overview: Sherlock

What a series! With only 3 episode I am already sad that the Season is over but in all honesty I don’t think I could have handled any more episodes pulling at my heart strings

What I liked about Series 3:

  • We learned about what Mr. Hudson did for a living.
  • Mary was an assassin and intelligence agent of some kind.
  • We saw Sherlock grow as a human being.
  • Molly became a stronger character
  • John hit sherlock
  • Molly hit sherlock
  • Mary and Sherlocks friendship
  • All the Johnock Moments
  • Sherlolly- I never shipped them until this Series
  • John hitting people in general.
  • Everything about the Empty Hearse and The Sign of Three

sherlolly

 

What I didn’t like:
Many of the aspects I didn’t like actually came from the last episode His Last Vow

  • Mary didn’t kill CAM
  • John was at fault for Mary being who she is, what?
  • Lady Smallwood didn’t kill CAM
  • CAM’s death was not satisfying

For me the last episode was just not that satisfying with how it ended. I just wish that there was more. It felt like there was something missing.

Overall I give a 4 stars out of 5 for Season 3 because of the last episode 4 stars

  • OMG he just shot him!
  • He did it for John. Oh Moffat you suck.
  • I was hoping Mary would shot CAM.

  • Moriarty is Dead!
  • He can’t be alive!
  • My brain has been abused by moffat once again.
  • I can’t deal with you Moriarty.

___________________________________________________

So part of my theory was correct we know that she was blackmailed by CAM. Apparently people are looking for her and she is in a lot of trouble with them. Makes sense that she was involved with the government as an assassin and with intelligence of some sort, maybe USA because there was mention of CIA, but that could have been brief.

I wish Mary had killed CAM. At the same time though it part of me thinks that it would have been difficult because she is pregnant and the other part of me believes that she could do it because I’m sure she has had to deal with other kinds of pains while being an agent. Also in the original story it was a random woman. If not Mary Morstan than I was really hoping for Lady Smallwood, after all her husband committed suicide, so it would have been perfect revenge. Although it would have been great is Sherlock and John arrive only to find the whole house in an uproar. While Sherlock frantically looks around for Magnussen’s library only to find Lady Smallwood there over CAM’s body saying the library is gone. It was all in his head. It just would have been awesome.

My question is how did Magnussen find so much about Sherlock? The only way could have been from Sherlock’s brother Mycroft and the only person that we know that has had a conversation with Mycroft regarding Sherlock is Moriarty. Did Magnussen and Mycroft know each other in the same way? Did Magnussen and Moriarty know each other?

Final Thoughts:

  • We will continue to learn more about Molly.
  • I still think she will die, especially since there is a new villain.
  • I don’t think Moriarty is alive. I will have a theory posted soon.
  • This episode was really good. So much happened in this episode.

Overall I would have to rate this at 4 out of 5 stars. Even than I feel that is being nice, only because I was wanting more( specifically with Mary and CAM. I know its the end of the episode of a season, but still it should feel complete and yet keep the cliffhanger somehow.

4 stars
