Another dumb opening scene that was entirely transparent and lacked any drama. It seems Holmes has decided to become a jerk to everyone in this episode. Well it beats having to write clever things for him to say and do.
Things were learned:
Sherlock is an a-social jerk (for this case anyway) and Watson a blissful boob.
NYPD cops have no street smarts or driving training.
There are more than 2 cops in NYC and one is even female and can talk! I wonder if she is an important character in this episode?
Bell is short.
You test reflexes by throwing stuff at peoples backs randomly.
Psychiatrists now state life advice rather than helping the clients work out what they want.. when Watson remembers to visit hers anyways, for a 90 second scene.
Can cops can arrest people with gun licences for possibly discharging weapons?
Cops, when cornered like to betray their guilt visibly on their faces in-front of other cops.
Also they like to verbally admit to their guilt without lawyers present nor plead the 5th and this is all done while not under arrest.
A clever way to write and ending is to reveal lots of info the viewer has never been party too.
Sherlock appears to lack the reflexes he was supposed to be passing on to Watson.
I hoped that making a list of good n bad might make the episode more fun to watch, prolly the wrong episode to have done that with.
