Sherlockian Wednesday Watchalong
The Reichenbach Fall
IMPORTANT: Tonight is not the drinking game version of TRF. That’s on Friday. You can pick your preferred watchalong, or come to both. It’s all fine.
Anyone is welcome to join us, even if you’re just seeing this randomly out in the tags. All you need to bring is your own copy of the episode to watch.
See you this evening in The Giant Chat of Sumatra!
THE REICHENBACH FALL ALCOHOL 100% OPTIONAL DRINKING GAME & WATCHALONG
When: Friday, April 18 at 8:30 pm US Eastern time (convert to your date/time)
Where: The Giant Chat of Sumatra
- A copy of BBC Sherlock episode The Reichenbach Fall.
- A graduated cylinder, kitchen measuring cup, or other measury-type thing to drink from.
- The beverage of your choice, which totally doesn’t have to be alcoholic. Water, soda, tea—whatever shakes your boat!
Ah, the fandom drinking game. A fun idea, but not everybody drinks alcohol, so it’s hard to play with a large group. UNTIL NOW. Sherlock fans have been given an unprecedented opportunity to let everybody play and stay true to the show…
Bring anything you’d like to drink, play the game, and at the end of the night we’ll science it up so hard and work out whether you’d have gotten a little tipsy or needed Lestrade to bail you out of jail if you’d actually been drinking alcohol.
Anyone who likes the show is invited, even if you’ve never been to a watchalong before. (And there’s also a “normal” Reichenbach watchalong on Wednesday the 16th if you’d rather do it that way. Or come to both! Both is good.)
A “proper” announcement post will go up tomorrow, but: The Reichenbach Fall Alcohol-Optional Drinking Game & Watchalong will be held on Friday, April 18, at 8:30 pm US Eastern time in The Giant Chat of Sumatra. (Convert to your time zone.)
And if you don’t want to have anything to do with this particular type of silliness, there’s a “regular” Reichenbach watchalong at the usual time on Wednesday. Pick the version you prefer, or come to both. Whatever shakes your boat.
*Actually not kidding about the graduated cylinders. But a regular kitchen measuring cup will also do the job. You’ll see.
"But not the sort who'd fix your heating?"
"No, the sort who'd plant a bomb or stage an assassination, but
I'm sure he'd make a pretty decent job of your boiler."
One more post about the “missing” fall solution footage so everyone’s on the same page, and then we need to move on for a while.
See those pictures up there? Those are all the shots from The Empty Hearse that showed Molly at the real St. Bart’s.
Anonymous asked: >Though I say “almost” because the footage they shot of her on that day has mysteriously never appeared, just like the rest of the fall solution footage they filmed during Reichenbach. It was not used in The Empty Hearse. They filmed false footage so setlock wasn't accurate.
I wasn’t referring to the fake stuff they filmed last year. I was talking about the extra shots they did as they filmed Reichenbach.
We’ve worked out how Sherlock survives, and actually shot part of what really happened.
—Steven Moffat, January 2012 (aka just after Reichenbach originally aired)
And we know he wasn’t lying about filming extra stuff, because if he was then Louise Brealey wouldn’t have been there in costume at that time.
Setlock wasn’t setlock back then. Seriously, just try to find as many photos as you can of them filming the original fall for Reichenbach. I bet the total number will be less than the number of photos you can find of just Martin lying on the ground during Empty Hearse filming.
The footage I’m talking about isn’t plastered all over the web, and we currently have no reason to believe any of it was filmed as a red herring. (You could argue that they totally changed their minds about the solution and threw the old stuff out, but given the preponderance of the evidence I say they’re saving it for the true explanation to be seen in Series 4.)
Anderson: Molly? Molly Hooper? She was in on it?
Sherlock: Yes, you remember the little girl who was abducted by Moriarty? You assumed she reacted like that because I was her kidnapper. But I deduced Moriarty must’ve found someone who looked very like me to plant suspicion. And that that man, whoever he was, had to be got out of the way as soon as his usefulness ended. That meant there was a corpse in a morgue somewhere that looked just like me.
Sherlock: Molly found the body, faked the records, and I provided the other coat.
Sherlock, you are such a lying liar.
