If you’ve got a Tumblr account (or can make one), please go ahead and post your Sherlock crack theories on your own blog and tag them with #Reichencrack rather than submitting them directly to me.
I’m NOT complaining about the people who have already sent their crack theories in to me, and I’ll still post what I’ve gotten so far. But my queue is getting pretty full. Since I don’t want to flood everyone’s dash or have to hold your theories until April 2nd, it would be a really big help!
And I promise I’m reading (and loving) all the theories on the #Reichencrack tag, so I’ll still see what you post.
In canon, Irene Adler was from New Jersey. In Sherlock, they made her British. A question about the change in Irene’s background led to a discussion of accents, and whether New Jersey accents are really like the stereotypes would have us believe. Accent samples were requested, and they have now been provided by some very awesome volunteers. And that’s what you missed on
Glee Bones Doctor Who Sherlock whatever we’re talking about at this point. I’ve completely lost track. It’s been a complicated evening.
And I love you.
Seriously, bees are great.
I do have to reply to this, because I have to publicly say you and your friend are awesome for dragging your biology teacher into this.
I may not think Sherlock was seriously injured when he fell, but that does nothing to decrease the awesomeness I feel you both possess.
Oh! Tumblr did eat the other half, so thank you so much for resending. I am thrilled to have this information. (And be sure to tell me when you make your Tumblr, Bart’s Anon!)
YOU GUYS, THIS TRAFFIC CONE WASN’T A PROP. IT JUST WANTED TO TO TIP US OFF THAT WE SHOULD WATCH THIS SHOT FRAME-BY-FRAME. BECAUSE IT LOVES US.
AND I LOVE IT.
I THINK WE SHOULD ADOPT IT.
Thank you once again, Magical Bart’s Anon!
For anyone who hasn’t been following along, this Anon has very kindly been doing on-location research. The above is in reference to a question that came up about whether the ringing sound after the BMX Bandit knocked John over could’ve been coming from the red phone box.
And eliminating a possibility is at least progress! Personally, I think I’m satisfied enough with the idea that the ringing was tinnitus. And then if they want to surprise us with… an ice cream truck or something, so be it.
Why are you so amazing, amazing person?
If you are seriously willing to go be John wandering around in a field while the rest of us sit at home in our bedsheets, then I think it would be great if you were able to confirm whether that type of phone sounds like the ringing we heard in the episode. Because it absolutely could’ve been a sound effects issue that made the difference, but I had basically assumed there was no chance I’d ever be able to find out.
Just. So. Very. Amazing.
Oh, Anon! You’re amazing! Thank you so much for doing that!
It’s okay if we don’t have a conclusive answer… the Legend of the Traffic Cone that Loved Sherlock Fans can just live on for now.
