Amber J. Gardner's Unfolding Story Addiction
And apparently this makes this version of Irene Adler better than Sherlock’s Irene Adler because it makes her more idependent.
I haven’t watched Elementary. I refused to watch it because of A. It’s a stolen idea they stole from the BBC (and yes it does seem like they made it their own, but still it was only made because of the success of Sherlock and that pisses me off). And B. Watson is a woman. (yes this bothers me and not for a sexist/misogynist reason but actually a feminist reason).
Now it looks like Moriarty is a woman too! And Irene Adler! At the same time!
Screw it all.
People think this is awesome. We got strong awesome female characters in t.v shows! Woo!
No, no, NO.
It’s a trap!!
I’d rather have Moriarty and Watson, even Irene, HELL have an entire male cast with the exception of one character than what Elementary is, if that exception is Sherlock.
Sherlock being a woman TRUMPS everything else.
Because SHERLOCK is the hero.
Irene is the love interest (will and always will be). Watson is the sidekick/partner (will and always will be, no matter how many times she saves Sherlock). Moriarty is the villain (will and always will be).
Making them women is meaningless!!!!
It doesn’t change anything. It still limits what roles a woman can play.
And why why WHYYYYY is it that supposedly the strongest, most kick-assery, independent female characters in mainstream entertainment are evil. Why is it that it’s awesome that Moriarty is a woman? Or the Black Widow was a former assassin? Or Catwoman a thief (hell all the female characters in Dark Knight Rises were bad to some degree)?
No. No. No.
I will never be satisfied or happy until there is a female equivalent of Sherlock, Doctor Who, Superman, Batman, etc.
I didn’t catch the entire episode, but I have a feeling I caught all the important bits.
Okay. I forgive you for the previous episode. But don’t you DARE do that again or I’m out that door and not gonna look back, mister!!
God, I Hate this ending, but in a good way. I fucking hate Metatron! And I never really hated any of Spn’s villains before. But he took Cas’s grace! They finally did it! I want him to get it back and I want Metatron to PAY big time! Thus, I want to see the next season. Clever sons of bitches…
Lots of nice questions at the end. Beautiful acting by Jared and Mark. Crowley crying? LOVED IT.
With angels on earth, I see a possible unstable teaming up with Crowley again…maybe.depends on how much his half-change is permanent.
Damn. Now the Hellatus. Only good thing is soon comes the DVD box set and the gag reel! Yay!
Okay, I can understand the anger towards the racism whenever they consider turning a white superhero into a black superhero in movie adaptations. But I know the solution that should make everyone shut up.
Instead of taking something that’s been done before and changing it (the race, the gender, the time period, age, etc), how about some originality and just create a brand new superhero and work as hell to make it as popular as the first icon.
It feels almost like people have stopped trying.
Somewhere in like the 30’s or 50’s or whenever it was, people stopped trying to make new icons. Superman, Batman, Fantastic Four, X-Men, even Sherlock Holmes and the story of King Arthur, is that really it for us? Are we just going to rehash the same stories over and over and over and OVER again?
Lets create a black superhero that a just as iconic as The Human Torch, Superman, Batman, whatever, that stands on their own.
Or am I asking for too much?
