Re: Was it too much fan service?

You're fairly on topic for me because the whole of that episode was(in theory) a complete disservice to this fan.
I hate weddings and donl't drink...
Yet I still managed to enjoy it.

Mattlocked, that is interesting trivia (i also didn't know there is a difference), yet it was not quite my point. I didn't actually say i missed more guests to that night out http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png
 Having said that, i did enjoy that scene to a degree, it was well played and it was funny. It is just not really "my" Sherlock! *lament lament* Even though i loved the notion how he thought he can actually conduct the state of drunkeness but even the best laid plans can (and usually do!) fail. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

 
No, I know.
I just wanted to say that he would've been more out of character, had he organized a complete party with hundreds of people.
John and he alone - that's what he knows and what he likes.
That was my point.

Re: Was it too much fan service?

Thanks besleybean. I am new to that forum and i don't wanna be a nuisance. Posting my first topic and then solidly flying off the rails, i was just not sure if people might be annoyed. So thanks!

Mattlocked, get your point now, thanks! And indeed you have a point here. agreed, a party with a gazillion guests would have been much more disturbing http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Was it too much fan service?

You're welcome!
And you will see that the thread is mainly about 'fan service' in TEH, so opening a new thread to have a general discussion is totally okay. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Was it too much fan service?

I will check it out for sure.
Apart from the fact that i really didn't find the one topic you linked here, it is also a bit tricky in general for newbies in forums cause in some forums it is not welcomed when you start several topics about the same thing (which i understand), in other forums it is frowned upon when you bump up an old thread (which i don't understand), so i am basically just feeling my way through here.

Re: Was it too much fan service?

Don't worry, Lilith. Post away on whatever you like!  No one bites here. We're friendly and we welcome discussion.  With long waits in between series, redundancy of topic here is pretty much unavoidable.  We don't mind....

You. It's always you. John Watson, you keep me right.

Re: Was it too much fan service?

Just a use of words thing: a bucks party and a stag party are exactly the same thing. The  former is American the latter British.

Re: Was it too much fan service?

I also thought season 3 was quite different from the first two seasons and I actually like all seasons equally, but I don´t think the writers tried to please the fans with the scripts and concept of season 3.
I think they had a clear vision from the beginning how they want to do the series and which themes they want to cover. After all Mark Gatiss had said in an interview it´s a show about a detective and not a detective series, so for me it means the show is mainly focussed on the characters and their development and the cases and crimes are one way to portray these characters.
And Steven Moffat had said he always imagined Sherlock being John´s best man at the wedding after reading the novels as a teenager and he always wondered what kind of speech Sherlock would have given. So in a way I think he used the series to write his own kind of fanfiction and in my opinion he did it brilliantly. For me season 3 has been the perfect mixture of heartfelt emotion, clever wordplay, funny silliness, surprising drama and nervewracking suspense and I wonder what the writers will have in store for season 4.

Re: Was it too much fan service?

And that´s what makes the discussion in this forum so interestinghttp://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
! All these different opinions and thoughts, it suprises me again and again how much knowlegde about the series, the writers and the actors the fans have and much thought they put in every aspect of the show.

Re: Was it too much fan service?

Before registering here i had read some topics and i enjoyed the civil discussions which were pretty free of fighting and bickering. I especially enjoyed the topic about What Sherlock Did, id est shooting CAM. Even though opinions really differed, folks here discussed it in a very civil manner and that was also a push for me to finally do register and join the talk. And yes, guys, that's a compliment to all of you for being able to have different views and standpoints and not getting nasty to each other!

Re: Was it too much fan service?

Yeah, that´s what I like about this forum too. Coming from other fandoms I have seen how insulting and offensive people can get, so it´s really nice to see how civil, tolerant and friendly discussions can be even if there are totally different opinions on the same subject.
