I know you've noticed I've been gone for a while. There have been a lot of things going on in my personal life including some family emergencies and surgeries. Never fear though, all is well.
There's some fun stuff I'm considering for the future but you're all going to have to wait for it. Just know...wonderful things. I'll at least muse about it in a future post. For today it's going to be fun and light.
I tend to think mindless when I think of tv but Sherlock is one of the wonderful exceptions. It's engaging, sexy, and doesn't dumb down for the audience. All a good lover should be if you ask me. Last month on New Years Day it finally came back after a year and a half long hiatus and oh did it come back. The first episode of series 2 gave us BBC's interpretation of Irene Adler. Let me tell you this, I'm not sure if more of me wants to be Irene Adler or to have her.
In the BBC Sherlock, Irene Adler is a very famous Pro Domme. The initial scandal comes from a series of photographs that Adler has of her dominating a certain female member of royalty. She's intelligent, powerful and incredibly sexy. Sherlock's match if there ever was one. Thankfully this episode doesn't take on a full out Sherlock and Irene romance. Sherlock has no interest in such things and Irene Adler is gay. This is something I loved seeing as a bisexual woman. I love menfolk full and well but there is something extra special about having another woman under your dominion. If I ever went Pro I'd love to cater to mostly women with a number of extra special men whom I'd adore to have serve me. But I do digress.
Irene Adler is The Woman not just professionally but because she is the only woman to get the better of Sherlock. We have her to thank for this delicious little piece:
My only complaint is with the writing at the end of the episode. Sherlock beats her. There's just something so wrong about seeing him get the upperhand and figure out her game. I guess it's the same tv formula that the hero always takes down the bad villain. Shame.
I'm going to hold out hope that they bring her back in the 3rd series (or if they have a 4th one I'd settle for that). It'll be interesting seeing who she's become in light of what happened at the end of Scandal. Either way, it was nice seeing a Domme who wasn't portrayed as a complete stereotype.
If you haven't checked out Sherlock yet make sure you do it soon. In fact, make it a nice little assignment from me.
