Series/Sherlock:

...scheduled to begin filming in early 2013, and is expected to air either later on in that year or in early 2014...

Definitely disapointing, but there was a similar delay on the second series, and it is essentially a small cluster of TV movies. Who's seen the pilot version of A Study in Pink? If they kept to the schedules we're used to, they'd be stuck down in that mediocre hour-long format.

On the other hand, most of us didn't experience the full gap between first and second, and honest Americans are still waiting for series 2.

Honestly did they ever explain why they choose the 'micro' movie format in first place? I can't think of any other tv shows that do it.

'Because it's awesome' isn't a good enough reason?

Seriously, though, I think it's mostly an issue of pacing.

...Pacing really would be an issue - you wouldn't have the character depth and quality of interaction between characters you have now. Imagine Christmas at Baker Street, conversations between Mycroft and Sherlock, Irene meeting John at the abandoned plant, all gone... Hell, Mycroft wasn't included in the 60-minute project... The length, quality and scarcity of the eps is what makes this show great, and sets it apart.

...You can always give Elementary a try when it comes around.

Compared to the finished mini-movie format, the pilot version is awful.

The reason they went with the three-movie series format is because the BBC had recently had success with another show like that, and felt that Sherlock would do well with it.

You know, it still bugs me: why did Sarah and Molly have time to get concerned, given how the Great Game cliffhanger actually panned out? I can only think the Three Evil Magicians wrote themselves into a corner.
Well! Is she here? Is Alberta GRA here?

C'mon, guys, DO IT.

Series 2 premiered in the US tonight, for those half-dozen American fans who stay legit.

Apparently it's already released on disc. PBS Y U NO RUSH IT?

My PBS station is rerunning it at 1:30 AM tonight.

I noticed at least one scene cut, which I'm ambivalent about because it's overall a pretty good scene Mycroft telling John to be on drug abuse/suicide(?) watch after Adler's "death", but on the other hand, it's also half of what I don't like about how this season handles John's romantic life the lady doctor from the last season ultimately chased away, the latest of John's serial girlfriends can't handle him canceling his plans to look out for his friend.

Don't be the penis.
So after rewatching The Reichenbach Fall with my law-abiding parents tonight, I realized another ironic mirror between Sherlock and Moriarty.

Moriarty's plan to make the world believe that Sherlock had convinced everybody he could do something impossible included making Sherlock (and the world) believe that he, Moriarty, could do something impossible (own the world with a few lines of binary). He made himself look like more of a genius than he is to make Sherlock look like no genius at all.

I finally saw it tonight!

My favorite series all have rooftop suicides. First Life on Mars...

I was channel surfing recently and caught the second half of Reichenbach Fall in French. It struck me as odd that even after the Christmas party at Baker Street, people were still calling each other "vous" all over the place. In particular, Molly and Sherlock have no reason to use "vous, " do they? Being from Canada, I don't know if this is because French people are that much stingier with "vous" in real life, or if the translation was just going for a highbrow feel. But whatever the reason for it, this general formality contrasted nicely with Sherlock and John's use of the more intimate "tu". Does anyone know at what point in the series this starts?

No idea. I can barely remember any of the French that I was taught in school. What do Vous and Tu mean?
SoulSilver Pokedex : 430/493 ~~~ Friend Code : KiKO / 4126 2277 1554
[up]They both mean "you", but "vous" is usually only used in the singular in a more formal sense (it's also the plural form, but that's not important right now). I'd think that, at the very least, Sherlock and Mrs. Hudson would be using "tu".
Everything is perfect / it's falling into place / I just can't wipe this smile off my face
[up] Nope, Mrs. Hudson calls both Sherlock and Watson "vous, " even though she's older, and sort of maternal towards them otherwise. They call her "vous" as well.

Here is an article for those unfamiliar with this concept: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-V_distinction

 548 Some Sort Of Troper, Fri, 25th May '12 1:25:57 AM Relationship Status: Complex: I'm real, she is imaginary
Well, Mrs Hudson seems like she would very much be the sort to insist in the prim and proper way of maintaining the landlady-lodger relationship, even if it becomes a bit silly.
Don't just tell us the facts; tell us the memes, tell us the archetypes, tell us the catchy ideas and symbolic roles that get planted in pe
But at the same time, she seems motherly.

Was Watson going "vous" with everyone too, or was it just Sherlock?
Everything is perfect / it's falling into place / I just can't wipe this smile off my face
[up] From the point where I started paying attention, everyone said "vous" to everyone else, except Sherlock and John toward each other. In particular, I thought Moriarty might call Sherlock "tu" as a feature of his creepy-flirty and condescending manner, but no.

I wonder if Sherlock and John began using "tu" as soon as they became flatmates — it would be incredibly stiff to use "vous" over breakfast in a shared apartment with someone of roughly the same age.

Presumably, Mycroft and Sherlock use "tu" with each other as well, and I would certainly hope John and his girlfriends do. Irene and Sherlock... probably not, although Irene might switch to "tu" when she belittles Sherlock after tricking him. Hmm... kind of tempted to rewatch the series in French just for the pronouns.
