Right you are. Otherwise you might put your fist through the monitor. Let the whole bloody show load first!

Aiona, your speakers are fine. Though ( or because or in spite of) being born and raised in London and attending LAMDA, Benedict has a tendency to swallow his words.
I don't know if it's a bad habit or if it was his interpretation of the way Sherlock would speak. I had no problem at all understanding Martin Freeman (Watson) or anyone else in the cast.
Holmes: I never guess!
Watson: Yes you do.
Interesting 21st century take. Best rendition of an original character: Inspector Lestrade.
Ok, so this was nowhere near the Jeremy Brett version of the original stories, but it was intelligent and witty
Cute (for Holmes fanatics) points: The issue of Watson's wound which Sir Arthur left up in the air, as in one story it appears to be a leg wound and in another, a shoulder wound is finally decisively resolved
In A Study in Scarlet
Lestrade gets it wrong and thinks " Rache" is Rachel. Holmes tells him not to waste any time looking for Rachel, as "Rache" is revenge in German. In this one Lestrade gets it wrong again-the other way around. He thinks Rache=revenge. It isn't. --It's Rachel
Holmes, when accused by one cop of being a psychopath retorts with: " I'm not. I'm a high functioning sociopath. Do your research! "
Then there's the nicotine patches: "This is a three patch problem. "
Principally, Holmes is presented as an adrenalin / danger junkie-- and Watson doesn't lag far behind in that department, either.
All in all, this was great fun to watch.
