I will watch it / have already watched it on first broadcast this evening
I will watch it in the next 24 hours after it is shown this evening
I will watch it some time in the next week
I may get around to it some day
I have no intention of watching it
What are you talking about?

I will watch it the second it comes on, come hell or high water.

We'd be watching it tonight, but daughter has made us promise we won't watch it till we can all sit down together.

So far they've been very good, not missing this one.

I'll have to watch it on a slight time-shift, as I'm on a train at the moment, and won't get home until about half an hour after it's started. But I will definitely watch it before going to bed tonight. If my Sky+ box allows, I'll just start watching from the beginning while it's still recording the end.

It's TV. Meh.

From tonight's episode (no real spoilers):

Sherlock, furious: "OF COURSE he's not the boy's father! Have you seen the turnup of his jeans?"
Watson, tiredly: "I knew it was a bad idea."
Sherlock: "What?"
Watson: "Getting you interested in tv crap."

Pay no attention to me: I'm just going through one of my periodic "TV is a fundamentally flawed medium" periods, as opposed to the "TV could be redeemed if only we could shoot all the scriptwriters and producers and hang the advertisers in the marketing managers' intestines and start again, Year Zero" periods.

Yeah, well, but then I am easily pleased. So I don't mind plot holes and stuff like that. Also, compared to Italian TV pretty much everything is highly intellectual, ineffably clever and fiendishly well-done masterpieces all over the place.

We missed last week's due to being in the wrong country. So we will probably watch last week's now and tonight's tomorrow or Tuesday, because I really can't handle being up much later and still get to work on time tomorrow.

Is it showing outside of the U.K.?
Aug. 8th, 2010 07:58 pm (UTC)
I don't think so, but there may be *cough* some means of watching it anyway...

Heh. I might wait for legal DVDs to make their way across the pond; torrenting tends to make our home WAN very unhappy for some reason.

It's a co-production with PBS so they might be aired over there before too long.
Aug. 8th, 2010 08:13 pm (UTC)
It's on right now and I am deliberately not watching it, except when my housemate yells in fury.
Aug. 8th, 2010 09:33 pm (UTC)
Just finished watching it. Bastards, is all I have to say!
Very satisfying episode, though.

I was bemused by the article either Gatiss or Moffat wrote for the Grauniad on the best [name redacted]s in history. One of them was from the Rathbone era, one from the Brett -- so far, hardly controversial. One of them was a character from the Rathbone era who wasn't actually [name redacted]. The fourth is the one in the current series. Bad form, I say. No Olivier, Welles or McKern?

Darn it, I was just reading your article in Vector and feeling all pleased with myself because I thought I understood it and had Actually Read One Of The Books You Mentioned (ZfZ); and now you go all obscure again on me!!!!!!
Aug. 8th, 2010 10:01 pm (UTC)
Trying to avoid spoilers; article was by Moffat and is at here.

I love the misdirection in the way (also trying to avoid spoilers) Moffat in that piece indicated two lines from the original as the Best Lines Ever, then said how hard it was to write new ones to do the same job, the JUST USED THEM AT THE CLIFFHANGER END ANYWAY!!! Very good sleight of hand :-)
