  • Interesting case!

    The case today was really interesting - I kinda suspected the killer really early once all the stuff about the position of the bomb was discussedm which was a little bit of a negative but other than that, it was really interetsing watching it play out.

    The stuff with the chickens and the training was hilarious and an example of why th other side of the show is also great. I enjoyed that.

    All up a really good one! Can't wait for more!moreless
  • Two Cocks in Harmony

    Loved the introduction of the chickens and the reprise of the puddings. Really makes me want to find a place that makes them near me. The exchange in the car while Gregson was away was pretty damn brilliant character development wise. This came off as a very light episode, despite the subject matter. The case was enjoyable but not terribly engaging, as far as elementary goes. Loved the chickens, but the show needs to work on incorporating Sherlock's previous pets before introducing more. We haven't seen the bees or Claude in ages.moreless
  • Fighting Chickens!

    I really liked this episode for the experiment with the two cocks. One could see, that it was very important to Sherlock to succeed in training these two cocks to live together peacefully and lose their aggressiveness.

    When you consider Sherlock's past this is totally understandable, as throughout most of his childhood and youth he had to suffer from the aggressiveness of the people around him.

    I also like the message in it.

    A change from aggressive confrontation towards living together peacefully is possible.

    As brookgarden i also thought that Lestrade's assistant was the bomber so it was a nice surprise to turn out wrong. Lestrade is quite amusingly annoying with all that ego and taking credits for Holmes's work but he's very interesting and i can't wait to see him in more episodes. I loved the new ringtone
