(If reading this please read to very end. ♥ also slight but not specific plot spoilers for Endeavour sereis 2 finale)
Honestly, the more I watch and love Endeavour, the more I wish Sherlock was like it.
I adore Sherlock. But the last series was so… unrealistic? I never really connected to the plot and twists much (especially in the last episode) because there was no evidence to suggest they were legitimate. When Mary shot Sherlock it took me until seeing him actually in the hospital bed to know that it had really happened which, granted, could been seen as me simply being daft… but it’s not. The plot was very loose. In the series finale of Endeavour I ended up starting off with the last half a week later from the first and was still on the edge of my seat. At the end it was so brilliantly tense it sucked me right into the suspense. There was one particular part at the end where the main characters were waiting and talking and there was no music. And yet it was probably one of the most nerve wracking parts of the show. And they even foreshadowed and flat out TOLD the audience what will happen before the end of the show and it was still freaking surprising. Ugh it was a wonderful performance, and it all was totally believable even though it was more extreme than what happened in the Sherlock finale. know they have gone a different direction with Sherlock and made it more of a drama this series rather than a detective show and that’s okay (just please not a soap ha ha!). But hey, this still all my own preference.
Anyway, Sherlock has been a huge part of my life for years now and I think it always will no matter what so I am glad for that. I really am excited and looking forward to the new special and series. Every time I see the first (and even second) series of Sherlock I remember how good the show can be and I guess all I can do now is hope for the best. ♥
I have no wish to delete this if anyone is irksome about it because I’m thankfully not afraid of posting my opinion on this. I am totally open to discussion.♥
