*The Hounds of Baskerville* - Sherlock Holmes seasons 2, ep. 2
That was disappointing. Reminiscent of season 4's the Initiative in Buffy The Vampire Slayer, but without the good parts, like Spike. An hallucinatory dog doesn't cut it the way demons did. From the evidence of so many internet posting, as well I'm a heretic in regard to Russell Tovey, experiencing him as a markedly dull actor with his pudding-like features.
Except for the location scenery -- those skies, with the columns of light between earth and clouds were splendid. Everything else lacked interesting spark, including Sherlock's hallucinogenic-induced break-down. Additionally. the codes / passwords business was even more idiotic in Hound than in Scandal.
Molly and Mrs. Hudson were o so sorely missed.
