m_y_ff: (11 -Weeee!)
 I just saw Sherlock - bbc version, and I have to say... My GOD Steven Moffat has a sense of fan service!!! 
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he revealed he spends most of his time visiting fansites on the web. First with Doctor Who, now with Sherlock, I think  this guy follows fandoms really closely.

I mean : honestly? There isn't 10 minutes to go by in Sherlock where there isn't at least one mention of the characters being gay! I know this has crossed everyone's mind at least one time, but it was clearly made for the crazy Internet Sherlock Holmes fandom. The slash fanfictions write themselves with this show. 
And then, Mycroft. Although he's never been seen very often in the books, and he's never been that much of a central character, everyone loves him [or at least, everyone on the Internet that I know of]. The result : he's got quite an important role in Sherlock.
Same goes for Lestrade, who I love but in the book he's quite clearly an annoying little man, and a slight coward. He's the definition of awesomeness in Sherlock. 

And John Watson. He is badass. He was badass in the book, but it's really not obvious as he's supposed to write the stories himself and he's too humble to praise his badassness. In Sherlock, he is B.A.D.A.S.S., and also slightly scary. Exactly the way many fans see him. 

Sherlock Holmes is Sherlock Holmes, and that's precisely what the fandom wanted. I loved the movie, but RDJ's Sherlock wasn't quite like the book's and it was a little strange. THIS Sherlock is a sociopath! How awesome is that? The precise "disease" (it's not a disease, is it? What's the technical term?... I have no idea.) amlost all the fandom accepted as being the one he had. 
Oh, and he's particularly strange. Severed human parts in the fridge? In the microwave? Riding crop in the morgue? If I didn't know better I would say that was ideas coming straight from the kinkmeme. 

To be honest, I almost had the impression to read a fanfic, but with a really nice "sense of television". 

And it was awesome. I loved it to bits. I really don't mind Moffat fan-servicing, because he does it absolutely perfectly. 
m_y_ff: (hopeless)
Vampires in Venice? Watched. Not so spectacular, but good story. Still cracks (of course, it's the main plot of this series!). I'm eager to see what they mean.
And FUCK YEAH RORY!!! I love him so much. More than Amy... I would love it if he stayed through the entire series, oh please please please!! <3
I need a Rory Icon.

That being said, I'm so late in my House Watching Schedule... I have like... 2 episodes that I didn't watch? Plus the one yesterday, that makes 3. I know, it's not dramatic and I can catch up easily, but now I'm demotivated. First of all, because of all the WILSON I HAT YOU SFM that I see everywhere in the fandom, it makes me saaaad T_T Because I love Wilson, no matter what he does (and he's a fucking fictional character, no need for me to hate him) but seeing so much hate is kind of disturbing. I guess I'll write something more constructive about it when I will have seen the episodes. ("will have seen"? That sounds so weird... Maybe it's just me.)

And now I'm desperate 'cause I can't find Arashi Ni Shiyagare! nor Kaibutsu-kun ep.4 anywhere. WHYYYYY?? T____T  If only I could access Clubbox. But I can't. Because my computer's a jerk. 
I WILL NOT SURRENDER. I will find these episodes.

And last but not least, I am now officially addicted to the Sherlock Holmes Kinkmeme. Who would've thought that reading prompts about penis slicing would be so interesting? I love all the crazies that this meme contains.
