I’ve always been conflicted about ASiB and I wanted to inflict my opinions upon the internet.
Who even would want to read this? xDBut anyway…beware, spoilers for Scandal in Belgravia and crazy fan ranting in this post!
Every time I watch ASiB, I always find it difficult to actually enjoy the episode. And it took me a little while to work out exactly why. Because, I mean—just look at it! Look how beautiful that shot is!
And this one!
And how fun was Lara Pulver? How amazing were all the performances, for that matter? And that music! And how great was that scene where [insert description of awesome scenes, A.K.A. the whole damn episode]? It was funny, clever, and felt longer than 90 minutes (in the good way). So what the hell was my problem?
At first I thought it might be my Johnlock bias rearing its ugly head, so I tried extra hard to like it when I watched it again. But no dice. And when I think about how much I love the original “A Scandal in Bohemia,” I get it.
