Sherlock: The Six Thatchers

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

For the first time ever on my pokey little YouTube channel, I'm talking about Sherlock with my review of 'The Six Thatchers' (Season 4, Episode 1). 

Note: There will be spoilers!

  •  If you go back to the first episode of the series, and how for the most part his life was always getting better, you knew sooner or later that John Watson was going to face get some major tragedy 
  • Mary's past being filled out in this episode was great, though it did kind of foretold the ending in advance
  • Everything with Mrs. Norbury had me thinking 'This is what would happen if Miss Moneypenny simply had enough' in the James Bond franchise
  • Sherlock had two major humanizing moments in this episode, the first with how he broke the news to the kid's parents of how he died a week before his car exploded and the second of him actually trying to get help to figure out what to do to help John following Mary's death
  • I loved the brotherly banter with Mycroft and Sherlock at the start of the episode, despite how smart they are, they are so childish!

Star Trek Voyager: 11:59

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

We offically close out 2016 with a quick review of the Star Trek Voyager episode 11:59 (Season 5, Episode 23) where we learn about one of Captain Janeway's ancestors who isn't exactly that Janeway thought she was.

  • Premiered May 5, 1999 (one would assume this would've been held over until December and be the winter break episode for the 6th season, but I guess with all the Y2K paranoia they didn't want to jinx it)
  • The scene where Tom Paris tells Janeway that there was no 'O'Donnell' that worked on any of the Mars Missions is great because we rarely if ever saw Janeway getting taken down a peg (even though she does get her 'heat' back)
  • This episode is Kate Mulgrew's best performance during her time on Voyager because she wasn't playing a Mary-Sue character and was playing someone normal
  • Kevin Tighe was fantastic as Henry Janeway
  • The scene where Shannon is willing to give up her future to stay with Henry is very well done
  • Neelix's comment about Seven wanting to have a little 7 of 9.5 running around and her resulting death glare is perfectly well timed light moment.
  • The aged-up make up on Mulgrew for the 'elderly version of Shannon' is just horrific
