Character Analysis » Who loves who more? (As far as appearences go.) » April 9, 2014 3:53 pm

He hoped to stop Moriarty with that act.

Willing to die for a person implies to love that person. Was it love at that time? I can't see that. I presume his act was an act of desperation and the only way to do anything. He was willing to stop Psycho Jim with that opportunity. But not willing to die.

In which situation? At the pool?
He was willing to do a lot (killing, being injured, bear his behave). But really dying...? I can't see it.

Sorry my english seems not to be sufficiant to understand what you mean. 

I just try to analyze things like 'a person is willing to die for some other person'. Why should a person do that?
To concentrate all efforts on prevent death of a beloved person is something different I suppose.

Character Analysis » Analysis of Mycroft's character » March 26, 2014 5:51 pm

I never thought of Mycroft as an cold exterior person. He often smiles (even its sarcastic) and his soft calm voice doesn't let me think of a cold or cool person. He seems to be asexual too (runs in the family? ;-)). So he is obviously not a hot-blooded or passionate person in that matter. In this and in his way of keep cool and keep the upperhand in risky situations he might be the "Ice Man."

But I made some other thoughts about Mycroft.
Care? Participation? Or Revenge? What a meaning of these words? 'How would you know?'
In 'Scandal in Belgravia' Sherlock says: "Sex doesn’t alarm me!" Mycroft: "How would you know?"
In 'Empty Hearse' this time Mycroft says: "I am not lonely, Sherlock!" Sherlock replies: "How would you know?"

The slang word “blud” is used in a situation of great thankfulness to express Sherlock’s gladness.
The very fond: “Brother dear” are used in opposite situations ironically meant. 
That's interesting.

This was related to the sentence "At the Pool, John was definitely willing to die for Sherlock".

A Study In Pink » Donovan, did she ever date Sherlock? » March 26, 2014 3:25 pm

I also don't think she was in love with him. It was just an idea.
I agree with the thought her anger seems to be very personal.
Maybe there is something more than the mentioned things like Sherlock always gets the interesting cases and ruins the police (her) credibility and so on.
She is so rude and inappropriate towards him actually calls him a freak also. Invidious in a energetic way. Her behave seems imo exaggerated observe the mentioned reasons, aren't they? 
If she simply doesn't like him and gives him an invidious remark from time to time it would be more understandable. But she hates him much and does a lot to ruin him. She tries to get John off of him in the beginning and says he could be a psychopath who starts to kill some day. And he should look after another hobby like fishing and so on.
She is so full of hate. More than Anderson who must have the same reasons to dislike him. Suspicious. There must be more...not necessarily emotions.

A Study In Pink » Donovan, did she ever date Sherlock? » March 25, 2014 7:37 pm

Maybe she hates him precisely because they had no date.
Love (futile infatuation) which converts to hatred...

...or was he willing to die for the mankind? Moriarty had to be stopped.

This woman has done it to him.
In whatever way. From the beginning he is interested in her. As Mycroft tells him about her, he repeats the word Dominatrix and his eyes sparkle when he hears that this woman opposes the most powerful family of Britain. - So at first he is interested in this woman because she offers him an exciting case...

Observing his face and his behavior as she naked received him then he seems unrelaxed as ever before. We might think he is resistant or prepared of those things. But he isn’t. Why ? Because nudity generally confuses him or because her nakedness confounds him? His eyes said a lot when she had come naked into the room, right? At this moment it seems he is so perplexed that he forgets to breath. The cool, head -controlled man is of a naked woman so confused that he forgets his code name and began to stutter? Is it because he is so inexperienced in these things? He must have seen many other odd things before. Why she confuses him that way?
He even seems to be a little jealous when Irene turns to John and says that she likes detectives.
And when she injected him the drug in his arm, he falls into a frenzy which is determined by the thought of Irene. He sleeps off his intoxication, his ecstasy of Irene. He is overwhelmed by her person, not only because of the drug.
But at that time there isn’t love. It’s more affection.

But if I look the scenes between them then there is something more than pure interest in the head of the other.
And as Mycroft in the morgue says that Sherlock but barely knew her he mocked Mycroft's view that one need not mourn the loss of a person you hardly knew.
The music he writes when she "died ", the carousel in the head as she do ( again ) lives .

When it begins , anyway? Where does it end?

The fact that he was looking for and saved her can mean everything ... but it can mean also love.
Why can he not love her even though he knows that they will never come togeth

I  agree and I see its odd. But to me it is ok. Because they are in series 1 and 2 more acquaintance in the beginning then later on friends but not close until the end. I am quite sure they are going to turn the formal "Sie" into "Du" in series 3.
But to me it is also funny when they address formally but fight like old friends like in Scandal in Belgravia "I had bad days" -scene.

To take up the cudgels for the German synchronization (synchronization in general).  My English skills are not the best to be honest. And I'm glad that there is synchronization.
Sure you could keep the original version and simply subtitles.
But you can also translate everything and sat comfortably in the armchairs and get it immediately. Indeed, it is very tiring if you want to read and watch at the same time what happens. Especially when talk so fast and a lot, as in "Sherlock". You missed quite a bit. Somehow this is never satisfying for me.

I mean, who cares anyway get the DVD etc and look at the original, as I do. Then I can also (after I watched  it in my language) listen relaxed to the really brilliant voices of Mark Gatiss, BC and Martin Freeman etc .
Of course I agree with the fact that a dubbed version is always phony and only an imitation. 
But a huge help for a lot of people.
