Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

I don't have words right now.
Maybe a bit later. Maybe I am a bit heartbroken.

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

That was very SAW-like! O.o
What a family!

I'm actually please with parentlock and Mary's "You are what you are" (or something like that) - so Moftiss went for ambiguity! There was that teyt Sherlock sent ("You now where to find me. SH") - could be Irene or a client or even Mycroft (since Mary's voiceover is about getting help at 221B).

I'm shocked and pleased at the same time. Wow.

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

Wow!  I loved it!  And now I see what they mean about it feeling like the end of an era, and the story they've been telling all along.   Funnily enough, it was quite different to everything that has gone before and yet tied up the loose ends, and completed the story.

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

Despite the effin' stream stopping several times, and making me miss the last minute...


I'm just... WOW! My heart rate is through the roof; I was crawling to sit right against the screen; cuddling the life out of my teddy. 


This was... HOLY MOLY!! 


And Molly... no... this... aaaaargh!


Also, could someone tell me, since I can't make iplayer work, and netflix doesn't upload until after midnight...

Was it said it was the end??

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

After having seen the whole season....I was very underwhelmed overall. The problem was that there was to breathing room. The whole season went from one dramatic moment to the next...but without the down-time, the funny moments in-between, they had no punch to them. I just felt numb. And I feel confirmed in my opinion that the writers just should have let go of Moriaty. CAM was a great villain for season 3, they could have found another one for season 4. Or multiple ones.  

It also didn't help that I was pretty sure that the girl in the air-plane wasn't real from the get go. For starters, what would happen if flight control lost contact to a plane? They would try to find it. And no plane that small is able to stay in the air for this long without running out of fuel.

And wow, they remembered the baby for 5 seconds...I mean...wtf?????

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

No, it wasn't expressly stated but it felt so. The boys are off to solve a case again.

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

Carefully asking... is there anyone like me who didn't like it much? Because... I didn't.

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

Can we somehow join the two threats? Two with nearly the same title feels redundant.

Open ends were closed bbut they can open something new, who knows.

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

Can we unite the threads somehow?

It will take time to order my thoughts. This was a hellish ride, an episode that will not be easy to rewatch.

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

@Whiskey   I didn't either, but I left my thoughts in the other threat....

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

I have drank an entire bottle of wine and I am having hot flashes.
I am hearbroken and overjoyed at the same time.
We had tragedy and pain but were left with hope.
I can't think straight but after being so nervous and upset before seeing TFP for myself all I can do is keep repeating I LOVED IT!!!!!!

Same here. It didn't convince me on various levels. And to start at the end: Having Mary speak what seem to be the final words (at least for now) is just a huge NOPE for me.

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

Vhanja posted hers just seconds after me, I think!  Unfortunately I can't merge them - I don't think I have admin rights on the S4 part.  Maybe one of the other mods can do it?

Or maybe easiest if we just copy over there.

Re: The Final Problem: First impressions

I have never said that after a Sherloch episode, but I'm not sure whether I liked it or not. There were nice scenes and the ending was sweet. But that whole middle part in "Sherrinford" I wasn't sure if that was brilliant or really bad writing. I can't really decide that at the moment. There was even a time I had tears in my eyes because I thought "what have they done to that show"! and a part of me hoped it would be a mindpalace thing.

Then I cried because I wasn't sure he'd really shoot Mycroft although I kinda knew he isn't able to. That part where Mycroft told Sherlock to shoot John to make Sherlock angry was predictable, but in a weird way sweet of Mycroft.

And after that end I'm really not sure why it should be continue?! They can't start solving crimes like they used to. It would be a step backwards.

So Mary basically told them they belong together?!http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png
