Re: When John starts to ask Sherlock for a loan...what do you think?

Good point.   I suppose ACD's Watson would have earned some money from the books (just as ACD did!), but there's no income from the blog - just free publicity. 

I don't think the blog is up to much though, not enough up dates, not a terribly engaging style, etc.   It's more like a personal blog than for publicity, but I suppose that was originally the point (for John). 

But yes, I think the archetypal Holmes and Watson, how we imagine them, is sharing the flat, working together, and not really having much room left for other people.   Hopefully we'll see that again soon.

Within the universe of the show they do have many people compliment John's blog.  Up to and including the "highest in the land."      http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Yes, it's a shame this Sherlock guy came back, isn't it? John has been so happy.

Re: When John starts to ask Sherlock for a loan...what do you think?

John has obviously desperately missed Sherlock, but the points remain: he moved house, fell in love and got a steady job.

Exactly the right things for the man who missed the war so much he developed a psychosomatic limp.

Re: When John starts to ask Sherlock for a loan...what do you think?

Well yes John obviously misses the lifestyle with Sherlock, too...but I fail to see how this impacts upon Mary.

Never mind, we wandered off topic anyway.

Re: When John starts to ask Sherlock for a loan...what do you think?

Sorry, I didn't actually notice which thread we were on.
But as somebody started talking about Mary, I did think it was the Mary thread!

Re: When John starts to ask Sherlock for a loan...what do you think?

LOL!  Well, we started off trying to deduce Sherlock's motive for deciding to go to the bank to check out the case that his old college classmate is asking him to solve, right when John's trying to ask him for a loan.  Perhaps it's time we returned to that topic. =)

I thought it was just a plot device for a laugh!

Re: When John starts to ask Sherlock for a loan...what do you think?

Well, yes.  I do think there's meaning there, but I think there's an awful lot of humour in Sherlock, even though we don't talk about it much!  One of the reasons I found it initially appealing, in fact.  That scene is funny!
