Sherlock: His Last Vow will melt the entire internet! *SPOILER FREE*

Forget the ambiguous solution to the Fall. Put the baggy, mawkish wedding episode behind you. Because Sunday night’s Sherlock finale is a scintillating return to form that will melt the Internet and drain the Monday-morning water-cooler within half an hour. His Last Vow ticks all the boxes. For Sherlock Holmes sticklers, the episode is based solidly on an original Arthur Conan Doyle story and also makes meaningful use of plot devices and characters from elsewhere in the canon.

Sherlock fans will be squeezing throughout at twists, turns and revelations – and the cliffhanger ending might just make their heads explode. Meanwhile, general viewers in search of a smart, thrilling adventure and great performances will be satisfied too.

Lars Mikkelsen manages to be simultaneously magnetic and repellent as master blackmailer Charles Augustus Magnussen, the man who believes he can own anyone he chooses. It’s a scene-stealing performance from the Danish star better known to fans of The Killing as mayoral candidate Troels Hartmann. Look out for the shockingly casual way in which he desecrates Sherlock’s Baker Street sitting room.

In an interview earlier this year, Martin Freeman joked that “the show’s not called John yet”, but after this episode it almost feels like it should be. The idea that Dr Watson is simply the everyman foil to the more flamboyant characters is called into question with a neat bit of analysis of John’s psyche. If there’s a let down, it’s the denouement of the main story, which serves Mikkelsen’s character badly and makes Sherlock appear rather naive – but that will quickly be blasted out of viewers’ brains by the mind-boggling final moments.

I will be posting an episode by episode analysis soon after the season comes to an end. Until then, bis bald (german for see you soon).

My musings

Please don’t add me here!

The culture we live in!

What if we looked at the whole life time experience as an act, like you’re acting in a big film and you’re main guy. You don’t fight a villain here. Just do your act and have fun with it. Instead of getting bored and judging your boredom, have fun with it. Celebrate your life the way it is.

In Hollywood and TV industry they give Awards to people as a compliment for doing a good role in movie or show. Now think about it, what if you get award for living your life the way you want it. I’m a quite shy fellow, so I don’t open up so good with people. I like staying aloof and observing people. Observing their characters and their roles in their life and watching emotions come and go. So, I’m a good observer, I get a good observer award. So, you’re in the awards function and after some guy/gal announces my name and I stand up feeling proud about myself (Actually feeling Shy/Shi**y). I walk on the stage and accept the award and I go to the microphone and start to curse(Thanking) everyone and after giving the speech the music starts playing and I burst into tears and I start saying, “This one’s for you.

That’s the Sh*t right there. So, it’s not just me, we all live in a shitty culture that worships the celebs and actress and all the wannabes. The inner me (Self) doesn’t want any kinda fame or recognition and wealth. But the wannabe in me wants it, and he is very desperate to get it and a wannabe is a person who wants attention, and he screams and shouts and trolls till he gets it.

Living life is like looking in a mirror. What is reflected back to us, by way of other people, is the state of our being, our consciousness. If we are angry, we may think that person over there is pretty angry. If we’re full of doubt, then we may think that the other person is full of doubt. The big secret is that beyond the mirror is the land of Soul.

 

Alexander the great is going to see the famous Greek philosopher Diogenes. Diogenes asks Alexander,

“What are you doing?”

Alexander replies, “I’m going to conquer Greece.”

Diogenes asks, “And what are you going to do after that?”

Alexander tells him, “I’m going to conquer Asia Minor.”

“And then what are you going to do?” Diogenes asks.

“Then I’m going to conquer the world,” Alexander replies.

Again, Diogenes asks, “And after that what are you going to do?” “Then,” says Alexander, very pleased with himself, “I’m going to relax and enjoy my life.”

 

Diogenes looks at Alexander for a long time and then finally says, “You know, I can save you a lot of trouble. Why don’t you relax and enjoy it now?”
