  • Interesting case!

    10
    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

    8.0
    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!

    9.5
    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.

  • I don't care which cock I'm holding, I just wanna know how it got there.

    9.0
    That line just cracked me up.



    It was pretty obvious that given the back story of the two fighting cocks, Holmes was going to get Watson to say the word at some point and Lucy Lui carried it out with a straight face. I would love to know if there were any outtakes for that scene.



    I have to admit that I got the villain almost immediately, for no other reason than I thought she was the most unlikely culprit thus almost certainly, the most likely.



    However, this in no way detracted from my enjoyment of the show as this one had many twists and turns.



    Excellent to see Lestrade back and I hope he shows up again and that brings up another point.



    What's happened to Mrs/Mr Hudson?



    I thought she would play a greater role in the show as she has always done in the many variations on the Sherlock theme.



    Anyway, a fine outing this week and I look forward to the next.moreless

    Another Fantastic Episode. Really Enjoyed It. This Show Just's Gets Better Every Episode. How conveniently Forrester organized the seating arrangements and was blackmailing Balsille and he didn't seem to mind, Balsille was willing to pay off Forrester just to keep quiet.
