…can i just say JLM makes an awesome sherlock holmes? watching it twice i was really able to appreciate the nuances in his performance—-the way he moved his eyes, the impatient walking, the bouncing on the balls of his feet—-like a smart kid in class who knows the answers to everything and is just waiting for everyone else to catch up.
…was perfect! loved it loved it loved it! jlm and lucy were PERFECT. and i love all the house feels i’m getting from this show. jlm’s holmes to lucy’s watson is an AWESOME dynamic. i can already feel the love/hate in their relationship.
yay! new show to stan for!
forgot how much i love the two of them together. i honestly didn’t realize how emotionally invested i was in their relationship until i saw brienne swear fealty to cat and cat swear it back. how often do u see a bond between two women like the one they share?
those were bitter sweet tears, tbh, cause they don’t sing songs about women.
I actually get really annoyed when “feminists” or women in general get really upset when you try to critique their problematic female heroes. Her being a woman doesn’t mean her sole existence has solved inequality, nor that she is above critique. That’s what happens when your idea of inequality is narrow and only focuses on middle/upper class straight women like yourself. “pack up your stuff y’all, we got what WE wanted, battle over, time to go. Wait, what? POC are upset about something? UGH WHAT PARTY POOPERS! Why can’t anyone just be happy for us?!? We can’t have anything!” the most annoying part is that the same people who worship some feminist figures who are still oppressive, and scream solidarity if you deflect, will be the FIRST ones to throw people like Nicki Minaj under the bus. “I mean, she just asks to be objectified.” or sex workers “I need to help you save yourself from degrading yourself!” or women who understand the true meaning of choice “you shave? You want to have kids? Don’t you know there is a better life out there for you?!?” Yeah, I’m done. This Girls fallout has been very telling - in a “internet manifestation of things I’ve dealt with some of the other feminists I’ve met on campus” kind of way
