Sherlock

I saw this on The Backlot:

'Having won a bunch of Emmys, Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat teased that the the upcoming season is “devastating”, “We’ve practically reduced our cast to tears telling them the plan.” '

Devasting? 'Ianto' devastating? Is he going to kill off Lestrade? What's the plan, because I am not watching any of it if he plans to kill people off. One case where I WILL read spoilers first. I cannot go through another 'Ianto' depression. Seriously. I'm still not over it, in the sense that I will never forgive RDT for doing that to us. And so callously and heartlessly. And then destroying the character of Jack as well, in Miracle Whip, which I didn't watch, but have read enough about to know what he did.

How is making people miserable good television? Isn't life hard enough as it is? I want my heroes to have happily-ever-afters. Preferably with no mprg, but that's just me. 'Sorry, Jack, can't help you stop the hoix from eating Newport today, the sitter's home sick.' 'No, Ianto, I can't rescue you from the evil alien kidnappers. Have to pick the kids up from daycare.' No. Just no. (Tiny bit of snark there. Sorry about that.)

Please don't ruin Sherlock for me, too, Moffat. Please.

I'm right with you! I watch TV to be entertained, not plunged into depression. I'm still not overf CoE myself.

(I do like me some mpreg though... I've committed that crime myself on a few occasions, but of course in my 'verse Torchwood have Fluffs etc. to handle daycare, lol!)

I won't say I never read mpreg, I just have problems with it. Maybe I'm a stick-in-the-mud, but I just want Ianto and Jack and Tosh and Owen and maybe Uninsane Suzie to chase aliens and have interesting and possibly scary-as-hell adventures, and have happy, hot relationships. Especially Jack and Ianto. :) :) :)

Well, I'm all for that too, lol! My muses sometimes have other ideas though... *grins*

Feel free to help yourself! The maker should be credited on my icon page, I think I have that all set up right, lol! Icons should be shared around as much ass possible so people can enjoy the creator's work!

I completely agree with you. I don't see the point of creating fantastic characters and plots, or developing relationships only to destroy everything after a handful of épisodes. It's certainly why I love so much 70's and 80's series. It was a time where entertainment meant something and where recurring characters were really recurring. (My latest deception is about NCIS LA. I never saw an episode before recently when I discovered Deeks/Kenzi couple-to-be. I found them so cute... So I caught up with the first four seasons to see where they went... only to discover that after four and a half seasons of flirting and ONE night together, the scenarists decided that they will stay just "friends".) WTF! Is that so hard to write some romance in an action series? Fanfiction writers do it without any problem (without being paid, by the way). I guess Professional scenarists can do the same.
Anyway I love Sherlock and I hope they won't ruin another great series.

They did that in 'Without a Trace'. Two characters had chemistry forever, finally got together. Next thing you know, they're not together because 'She had too much baggage.' That was it. Never mentioned again. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I don't know who writes for tv now, but they are not very bright, I don't think. Maybe that's why I don't watch it much anymore.
