Got to about 44 minutes into Sherlock before giving it up as trash. I reluctantly watched the rest of this series because despite everything I was curious about what was happening, and I started watching this because I heard it was ridiculous/terrible, but Yikes, buddies. Yikes.
I can’t believe Gatiss not even tweeted something like “hope you’ve enjoyed this season” or at least retweeted some enthusiastic comment or article, like it’s his fucking show, he wrote it with his own two hands he plays a character in it and he always cared so much about it and now it looks like Donald Trump its the topik he care about the most??? I don’t get it. I’m not really on the train “4th secret episode” but like, something is really off. Probably they just don’t care anymore.
I’ve been watching a terrible show on Netflix set in the 1910s. And like in season 1, while it was cheesy as hell and wrong on so many other accounts, the costuming department at least did a fairly decent approximation for the period.
Now in season 2 they’ve just stopped caring.
Because, I mean, clearly this was totally all the rage during the 1911 spring season. Right?
every time I need to reference a color, I hear my color theory professor quoting Piet Mondrian, “Everything is expressed through relationship.”
and then I adjust my colors to match the rest of my drawing
the full quote is “Everything is expressed through relationship. Colour can exist only through other colours, dimension through other dimensions, position through other positions that oppose them. That is why I regard relationship as the principal thing.”
My parents scream at me. they say mean, terrible, horrible things to me. Then they look at me and scream and ask why I am crying. I don’t know what to do anymore. They yell at me if I make too much noise walking, If I take too long a time to close a door, little things that kids shouldn’t be screamed at for. They call me names and they’ve hit me. I just I thought your parents were suppose to be these good people that helped you, that cared for you, but obviously not my parents, they hate my guts.
“The truth is, they didn’t ask me to introduce you. I asked them if I could do it. I was gonna talk about how I owe you so much, how you stood by me through all of my failures, and I stood by you through all your terrible outfits… But when I got up there, I got pretty emotional. To make it up to you, I’d like to read you the speech now.”
Marco makes the effort to introduce himself to Jean. ONLY JEAN. And he says “Encantado” which means “Charmed” or “Pleased to meet you”. (Sorry, I’m a terrible bilingual and my Spanish is a bit rusty.) BUT PLEASE LOOK AT MY OTP HAVING A MOMENT.
And then Jean notices Marco, and he’s giving him that irresistible freckled sunshine smile, AND I JUST CAN’T COPE WITH HOW CUTE HE’S BEING. (Please, someone draw loads of love-hearts around them?)
In the credits, they are holding hands. I repeat: HOLDING HANDS
HOLY SHIT. MY FEELS WERE NOT PREPARED FOR THAT ROLLERCOASTER RIDE.
