i guess you mean #remember when we got drunk and pretended to be people from ancient rome because we’re a bunch of fucking nerds, right?
basically me and my friends got shitfaced on new years eve and some of us got together and we assigned each of us a person from history and generally acted like something between huge history nerds and dumb idiots (and it was beautiful and i love everything about my time spent with my friends)

i was gonna type this into the tags of a reblog of this article but it would’ve gotten messy
there needs to be a balance. show runners need to pay attention to their fans and make them happy, but also realize that what the fans want isn’t always the best thing
i’m no expert on this but i also noticed that sherlock himself seemed out of character and the show seemed much more silly than it ever had before. sherlock’s fanbase likes to think they’re “crazy” and take pride in the ridiculous jokes they could make out of a serious show — which is fine, though it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
that’s the thing, though. sherlock is (was?) a very serious, dramatic, clever show about crime. it never came off as silly or lighthearted, and the few humorous moments thrown into episodes were kind of a cherished thing.
then, in the empty hearse, a massive amount of humor and fan pandering and “meta” (i don’t even want to call it that) was shoved into our faces. sherlock came off as the parody that the fanbase created as a joke — that joke is not actually supposed to be him.
the article brings up a fantastic point: the danger of a fanbase giving too much influence to a show. it has the potential to alienate and confuse both long-time fans and new viewers.
some fans may think they want to see a whole episode about the silly versions of sherlock and john they’ve created — but in the end, is that fulfilling? do all of the jokes and references to the fanbase fulfill our desire to see character development and good story lines?
i’ve said this before, but i think my main point here is still that fanservice does not make a good show. that’s what fans and the fanbase is for — if they want to portray the show as sillier and more lighthearted, power to them. changing the entire show to pander to that group, though, doesn’t seem like the best idea.
