List your favourite episodes in order

Place all the episodes in order of your favourites...this is hard and easy at the same time...

1. The Reichenbach Fall
2. A Study In Pink
3. The Great Game
4. A Scandal In Belgravia
5. The Hounds of Baskerville
6. The Blind Banker

I couldn't decide whether to put TRF or ASIP as my number one choice...difficult...

My order would be exactly the same... and with the same problem about TRF and ASiP. I'd put them together as number one, they're the ones I've seen most times and I enjoy them more each time.

Re: List your favourite episodes in order

Oooh that's hard....

1. The Reichenbach Fall
1. A Study in Pink
(I truly can't choose between them. The start and the end of the relationship...both beautiful episodes...)
3. The Great Game
4. The Hounds of Baskerville
5. A Scandal in Belgravia
6. The Blind Banker

Apparently I liked Hounds better than most. Maybe cause Russell Tovey and I'm a Being Human (seasons 1 - 3) fan. Not convinced on season 4 yet.

Re: List your favourite episodes in order

uh, let me think for awhile....

1. A Study in Pink
2. The Reinchenbach Fall
3. The Hound of Baskersville
4. The Great Game
5. Scandal in Belgravia
6. The Blind Banker

well the reason why I prefer watch Study in Pink because the start of their relationship looks very interesting.. and about the TRF, whenever I watch this *especially the suicide part* makes me feeling blue.. so I prefer it secondly after Pink.

Re: List your favourite episodes in order

Yeah I found it hard to choose between them. The beginning of their relationship is fascinating. And funny.

I agree with others about 1) and 2).  Both grab me every time, and
depending on mood,  either one can be my favorite.  TRF gets the
edge for me because of its unparalleled gut-wrenchingness.

A Scandal in Belgravia edges out TGG slightly for me for setting
the right tone and direction for a second series (after such
a long wait!)  in such a beautifully crafted way-  completely
hooking the audience for the duration.   Hounds is last for
me,  probably because I missed London, Lestrade, and Molly.

The Great Game, The Reichenbach Fall, A Study in Pink, A Scandal in Belgravia, Hounds of the Baskerville.

The Blind Banker doesn't even rank.

Re: List your favourite episodes in order

The blind banker is, for me, the worst one, but yet it is better than a lot of things I've watched on tv. And I still watch it from time to time, only for some of the exchanges between John and Sherlock.

Re: List your favourite episodes in order

The Blind Banker can be good if viewed as lots of tiny DVD extra scenes or 'webisodes' which help flesh out John and Sherlock's relationship. Beyond that it's an insult to have it stand alongside the other episodes/features. It does them a disgrace by existing and is hopefully as low as the show will ever go.

Hounds of the Baskerville is a weaker story than the rest (Indeed nowhere near as layered or entertaining) however it is still a solid enough piece and if I was to accept that this adaptation of Sherlock had a weakest link, I'd pick Hounds and still feel confident that the show is up for artistic scrutiny.

I rank the various websites which flesh out series one, or Irene Adler's Twitter account, as higher than The Blind Banker, in fact I'd dismiss The Blind Banker as even fan fiction and place our recent Yahoo! Answers shenanigans as more deserving of merit than it.

I'm embarrassed by The Blind Banker.

There, I think I can say I've vented my opinion of it enough now in front of other people who like Sherlock.

If you like it that's fine and please don't take this as a slight on yourself from me. I only just discovered whilst typing this out how much I loathe its existence.

Re: List your favourite episodes in order

LOL, that is indeed, quite a rant.  Don't worry, I'm not offended. Everyone's entitled to voice their opinions. Do you find it weird to think that episode was written by the same legend who wrote TRF? I do. But I guess it's just a case of bad scripting on Moftiss's part...just a weaker storyline in the first place. It does have it's moments though...but I'm thinking of the relationship development between Sherlock and John rather than the actual adventure storyline.

Re: List your favourite episodes in order

Nothing to feel offended about, m0r... I understand what you say. I really think it's the weaker one of the seven episodes we have to date (I prefer the unaired pilot to TBB and I consider it the seventh episode) but there are things in it I like; specially, like our Sherlock said, about John and Sherlock's relationship. And that first interview with Sebastian tells me a lot of things about Sherlock. But of course, I understand that you don't like it. And all the things you said about TBB are pretty much what I think about the last two minutes of A Scandal in Belgravia.

Re: List your favourite episodes in order

I can see why the last two minutes of 'A Scandal in Belgravia' might upset some people with its heroic charging about - sadly I'm a bit soft (On very rare occasions!!) and fell for it hook, line and sinker.

Re: List your favourite episodes in order

TBB was directed by Euros Lyn, who hasn't directed any of the other episodes. That's not to say he's not a good director - he's directed several brilliant Doctor Who episodes. I just wonder if he was the wrong choice for this. Alongside Paul McGuigan's brilliant directing of 1 and 3 it lacks pace and subtlety (I'm big on subtlety in film and television - it's why I prefer British over US produced stuff). Given Steve Thompson wrote TRF we know he can do some great stuff. Perhaps it was a combination of factors - TBB was several different ACD plots woven into one episode but based around the Five Orange Pips story. Not sure if Thompson is as big a Sherlock Holmes fan as Moftiss are; maybe it was the wrong episode to have written by someone with less insight?

But I definitely agree it's the weakest of the 6. Which is not to say I didn't enjoy it the first time I watched it and I do enjoy the character stuff with Sherlock, John and Lestrade. I just very rarely re-watch it.
