Mind Games, Melancholia and the Fall: Sherlock Series 2 Finale Review

Currently drying my tears after watching Sherlock's Series 2 Finale.  I never expected this show to be so emotional. It definitely hits something here in my chest.

This episode is so far the best among the six episodes.  I can literally feel the gradual buildup of intensity as truth unfolds and allegiance are revealed.   It is also very refreshing to see a completely different Sherlock.  I never imagined how will somebody like him can become so normal like most of us.  A person so vulnerable and extremely shaken by stress, fear and frustration.  In other words, this is the first time I saw Sherlock as a real person, a real human that feels pain.  This is the first time that I can actually relate to Sherlock himself instead of just treating him as a numb and emotionless organic super computer.

Last season, I believe that The Blind Banker episode is the most boring episode of the series (at least for me).    I strongly believe that without that episode, you can still understand the series. However the episode's writer, Steve Thompson redeems himself by coming up with this brilliant season finale that eventually serves as a huge turning point for the franchise.  With this episode, Sherlock proves that a series don't need 20+ episodes to create such brilliant concept that will leave people emotionally attached.

If you haven't seen this series, do yourself a favor and watch it.  I promise, you will never regret it.
