|"Watson, were you aware of all the slash fiction out there about us?"|
I think it's a testament to my laziness that it's taken me this long to post this review. That, and I have an old woman's memory, I truly do. So I'm lazy and can't remember to do things. Yay.
Once again, they do a rather amazing spin on this classic Sherlock Holmes story. It became clear to me pretty early on that there wouldn't be an actual waterfall involved during Sherlock and Moriarty's final meeting. I admit, I was slightly disappointed because that was such a classic setting, but what they ended up doing with it was brilliant, wasn't it? I mean wow. That is the kind of ending that will have the fans talking and speculating until they finally air the next season. My mom and I started discussing it right away, and I had a half-baked, not too terrible theory as to how Sherlock survived, and later on I read some other interesting theories. Some even suggested that Moriarty is still alive. I don't really believe that, but hey, it's not a bad idea, and I wouldn't be opposed to it.
This was a top-notch season, albeit too short. They always are. Alas, we'll have to wait awhile for new episodes, seeing as Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are both busy filming their respective movies. I guess that's what happens when you're in demand. In the meantime, we can continue to speculate.
My grade: B+
