The Emotional Stages of a Sherlockian

The initial fascination/confusion:

We’ve all been there. That first time watching “A Study in Pink,” when all you can think about is the brilliant dialogue, the fantastic chemistry between Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch, and, most of all, Sherlock’s masterful deductions. Unless you were lucky enough (or perhaps unlucky?) to have been warned of the emotional intensity of this show, you probably had no clue of what you would have to endure in the episodes to follow.

At this point, we’re basically on the same page as John Watson: some strange combination of being both intrigued and baffled.

Deductions in real life

Not long after starting this show, one may begin to notice they have started studying and analyzing as many details as possible about all the people they meet. Sherlock’s deductions can’t be that hard, right?

We all dealt with these feels differently.

Perhaps you covered up the tears with something like this.

So much emotional trauma.

And yet we continue to watch the show.
