I think the movie had other problems, but I agree that it could have been waaaay better if someone else played Dorothy.
I’m really happy that people are defending Joan’s actions in the plate-smashing scene and recognizing how this is just one great example of the balance in Joan and Sherlock’s relationship. To me, though, this scene had a really personal impact.
My only complaint about the show before this…
I agree. If Joan hadn’t gone after him, it would have been too similar too a scene of domestic violence . Aside from all of the other obvious problems that come with this, it would have been out character. Sherlock would never hurt Joan, and Joan would never allow him to dominate her.
It also would have meant that Joan was letting him get away with not talking, when he clearly needed too, and, as we have seen many times before, that is not how their relationship works.
I applaud the writers for Joan’s reaction, and for having Sherlock recognize that he behaved poorly and upset her, and apologize for it.
It blows my mind how when Sarah’s impersonating Cosima, she slips up her accent when she says “own lab” and “thank you, Dr. Leekie.” Just… HOW.
This is actually something that I have liked from the beginning. As the other commenter said, she slipped up when playing Elizabeth, too, and that made it feel authentic.
In fact, I want to go back and watch the scene where Helena was pretending to be Sarah, so that I can see how much she talked, because it was made pretty clear earlier on that all Helena can do is soften her accent a bit, she can’t really do other accents.
I love him so much. It is going to be very upsetting if he turns out to be a monitor.
I feel like I am the only Lizzie Bennet Diaries fan who did not contribute to the kickstarter, so while everybody else is getting their dvd’s I’m checking the DFTBA website everyday and waiting to see if it will be even remotely affordable. …
I’m in the same boat
Aw. :( Well, I figure we just have to be patient, and, if the dvd’s do turn out to be too expensive, we can still watch the videos on youtube. Plus, prices change all of the time, so even if we can’t get them when they first come out, we might be able to get them later. :)
