Anybody else disappointed? This season was all rather dumb, imo.

I haven't watched the first two series, only started this one because Trevor was over on nye and we watched the first episode in a hungover state the next day.
Definitely think its one of the better things on TV but still falls over the same old "not so shocking shock factor" hurdle like most scripts piss me off. But the personality of the show is great, the cut scenes of him reasoning in a limbo state visually is a great idea and bloody well executed and I love how the story line chops about much like his thought process, meaning you have to keep up. But yes in short I thought it fell short of the hype in terms of narrative.

I thought the 3rd episode was great up until the moment sherlock drugged his family. The line "John did you bring your gun like I asked" told me he was going to shoot Rupert Murdock a long time before it happened - its lazy and poor story telling as its mearly a line to justify the means of the ending as they never carry guns in the other 2 episodes. It was mind fecking obvious from the exchange in the cafe (where he took of his glasses) that the vaults where his memory - logically he was always going to shoot him and it was disappointing that A) that was the end for a battle of the minds... B) it had to be justified with the weak "did you bring a gun" spoon feed of a line and C) that it took Sherlock like nearly 30 mins of screen time to figure out there was no vault. I agree it was dumb, something more befitting of steven seagal, I was watching the program to see Sherlock outsmart his enemy, granted the logical option was to shoot him but the whole point is sherlock disarms people with his mind not with a karate kick or gun in his hand. As I said above one of the most celebrated aspects of this show for me is the fact that you have to pay attention to keep up and well in this episode I felt like I was waiting a long time for sherlock to catch up with the plot himself.

The build up of the episode was great though I was really getting into it and the introduction of Mary being an assassin was the first plot twist I've watched since utopia that was shocking, unpredictable and successful - shame that the episode then wondered off to a non-event. This show has to be careful as its got more resurrections than a zombie film and so many fake goodbyes that it risks becoming a cheap whore.

I agree with Runner here, I hate Murdoch more than can be healthy but this was very heavy-handed and the spoiler at the end was obvious for a long time. The spoiler near the start was excellent though.

The first two series have much better writing so they will be a treat if you track them down.
