Watched the first episode of BBC's Sherlock, and hotdamn WAS IT AWESOME! AND GAY! I'm still spazzing now so I'm incoherent.

My favorite character has to be Mrs. Hudson. Such a sweet woman, I love how she says "Sherlock!" in an exasperated voice. And *shock* she's a gay shipper!

(Watson was surveying the flat for the first time)
Mrs. H: There's another bedroom upstairs... if you'll be needing two bedrooms.
Watson: *bewildered* Of course we'll be needing two.
Mrs. H: Oh, don't worry, there's all sorts 'round here. Mrs. Turner next door's got married once.

(Holmes dashes off to a case, leaving Watson behind)
Mrs. H: (to Watson) Look at him, dashing about... My husband was just the same. But you're more the sitting down type, I can tell.

Then there's more at the restaurant scene! Poor Watson insisting he's not Sherlock's date, and some cute discussions on Sherlock's orientation <3


Benedict Cumberbatch (left) was a lovely Sherlock. Absolutely love his expressions, even though he talks too fast at times. The British accent doesn't help much, either XD Martin Freeman's Watson is darker than usual, yeah. I liked how they explored his being a war doctor and the repercussions it has on his current life; I think it's more realistic that way.

Aside from Lestrade, I was pleasantly surprised to see another of my favorite characters. I won't tell who it is, but I honestly thought it was Moriarty.

Another thing, at the end, when they were throwing around the word idiot a lot, I can't help but remember Arthur and Merlin from Merlin. Whew, BBC and their gay shows.

I've always been a fan of retellings - fairytales, historical occurrences, even Wicked. This updated Sherlock series would be another on my list. Definitely worth the five hour torrent wait!
