Firstly, here is a great article that I just had to link to!
Please, take five minutes and go read this article.
On a somewhat related topic...
Remember THIS post, reviewing the final episode of season three of Sherlock?
It disgusts me. I disgust me.
Once, I came across someone's blog where they said, "This one show is a great show, but one of the seasons has a whole bunch of stuff that goes against the Bible and it makes me really angry, but I'm going to keep watching because the characters are worth it!"
That post made me so angry. It's TV show! You're really going to watch something that makes you angry because it portrays God negatively, just because the characters are good?
Then I realized something. I had forgotten to take the plank out of my own eye before looking for the speck in this other blogger's eye (Luke 6, Matthew 7).
I did the exact same thing that this other blogger did. In my review of His Last Vow I basically said, "Even though the moral principles were thrown out the window in this third season of Sherlock and it offended me deeply, I'm going to keep watching the show because I have to find out how Moriarty survived!"
I want to apologize to every one of you for that post. I'm so sorry. My attitude concerning Sherlock was completely wrong and I don't want any of you to think that it's okay to brush away the sinfulness in entertainment, just to find out what happens next.
That being said, I've come to a decision.
I've decided that when Sherlock season four comes around, I'm not going to watch it. I have become increasingly dissatisfied with the show as it has progressed. This third series pushed me over the brink, and I'm making that clear now.
brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is
right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if
anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
