Things I would like to see Holmes introduce Joan as, knowing she has to play along:
- “My agent”
- “My personal beat-box”
- “My anger translator”
- “My great-granddaughter from the future”
- “My manservant who has been instructed to unexpectedly attack me at random times to keep my self-defense skills sharp and fresh”
- “My personal psychic”
- “My platonic life partner”
- “My adoptive mother”
- “My personal water bottle carrier”
- “You can see her too?!”
I’m also amused because it feels like elementary keeps fucking BBC sherlock’s canon—idk if it’s intentional or not, but the opening of 1x02 for BBC sherlock had sherlock being a prescriptivist asshole about a guy’s speech (and, no surprise, his speech is characteristic of people of a lower class than sherlock) and being truly insufferable
meanwhile e!sherlock talks about our evolving mother tongue and about language change and doesn’t judge joan’s lack of fluency in mandarin and he’s just totally cool with the diversity of language use
I mean I know sherlock and elementary don’t exist as responses to each other, but all the same I feel like elementary makes an active effort to be sensitive to issues that bbc sherlock just totally glosses over or plays for laughs
Joan Watson’s ‘I’m not paid enough for this’ face appreciation post
They’re trying to be Mofftiss, but they’re just not……
No. They’re not. They’re not “trying to be” anyone but themselves. Writers of a show are allowed to connect with their fans and have personalities, you know. Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss aren’t the only people who speak about their show on Twitter. Tons of cast/crew members of other shows do it. People who work on Supernatural do it. People who work on Teen Wolf do it. Tons of other shows that I don’t watch do it.
He’s just an arrogant with an enormous ego, that’s what he is.
