  1. Holmes & Watson: The Partnership

    S06.E21: "Whatever Remains, However Improbable" established Sherlock and John as two people who love each other but don't have sex with each other. The English language has so many words, but IMO it needs more words for love. The Greeks had at least four. Sherlock and Joan's relationship might be philia, "affectionate regard, friendship, usually between equals."
  2. Bumping this topic because S06.E21: "Whatever Remains, However Improbable" seems like a good time to discuss Gregson's history and character.
  3. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Did anyone else here grow up among engineers and scientists who cheered for Wile E. Coyote?
  4. I like seeing people who can love each other without falling madly in bed. Hoping it stays that way.
  5. Hatty Doran and Lord St. Simon are from the ACD story "The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor." Disappointed not to see Clyde. But by UK law, apparently a tortoise can be brought in if he has a statement of good health from a veterinarian. (The UK is concerned about rabies, which only mammals can get, not reptiles.) Among bees, only the queen and drone have sex. But fetishes don't have to be logical. Sherlock said "That's our team name" but due to interference I didn't hear what the name was.
  6. S06.E20: Fit To Be Tied

    We could have a game of Clue if we knew the names of the rooms in the brownstone. Is there a labeled floor plan?
  7. All Episodes Talk: Stifle!

    A couple of Archie and Mike bits, remembered from many years ago: [arguing about guns] Archie: Guns made America what it is today! Mike: For once I agree with you. They are getting ready to go out. Archie goes to get Mike to hurry. Mike, dressed but barefoot, puts on one sock and then the shoe onto that foot. Archie says that's wrong: he should put on both socks and then both shoes. After a bit more arguing, Mike says if they both had to run out into the rain when they were half done, he would have one dry foot but Archie would have two wet socks.

    If you mean me, it helps that I do not store information on sports, celebrities, movies, etc. Which explains why you will never see me on Jeopardy.
  9. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Just watched on Youtube because my station prefers f**tb*ll. Decibel question -- a decibel is 1/10 of a bel, a unit named after Bell. The decibel turned out to be more practical so the bel is seldom used now, but it is a legitimate unit. Unless I missed something in the clue, bel should have been ruled correct. At least they could have asked the contestant to spell it.
  10. The episode title is from a canon ACD quote: "How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?" The Sign of the Four, Chapter 6. Holmes made similar statements in other stories.
  11. S06.E20: Fit To Be Tied

    In ACD canon, things have logical explanations, e.g. the "fire breathing giant dog" in "The Hound of the Baskervilles" was not supernatural. (Sorry if that's a spoiler.) Outside canon, anyone may have written anything.
  12. S06.E09: Nobody Lives Forever

    I wonder if Sherlock followed the old European custom of telling the bees. It would have been interesting to see.
  13. Clyde: Artistic Clothes Tortoise

    Fan fiction prompt: Clyde's view and interpretation of the events in "Fit to Be Tied." If you write a story, please post a link!
  14. What is...In the Media?

    Stephen Colbert challenged Alex Trebek to a trivia contest -- loser is to shave off his new beard.

    It sounded to us that Rick said "Robinson Caruso" instead of "Robinson Crusoe." Did others hear it that way? Does number of syllables count any more?
