And that was how Bilbo defeated Smaug.
User avatar #19 to #18 - theavatarspupil (10/07/2013) [-]
Bilbo didn't kill Smaug...
User avatar #28 to #19 - fauxshores ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
He didnt say kill
User avatar #29 to #28 - theavatarspupil (10/07/2013) [-]
Bilbo never even fights Smaug...
User avatar #30 to #29 - fauxshores ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
I havnt read the book, but Im assuming he helps with "getting around him" in whatever way it is done. Just saying he didnt say kill. You can defeat something without fighting it.
User avatar #31 to #30 - theavatarspupil (10/07/2013) [-]
Just read the book, and you'll understand. The only interactions Bilbo has with Smaug is slipping past him with the One Ring and a conversation where afterward Smaug shot flames at him, forcing him to retreat back to where he and the Dwarfs had been hiding.

And there wasn't a Legolas or a white orc, but I'm taking artistic license

Man, the Hobbit movies will never live up to the book in my eyes...
User avatar #22 to #21 - demandsgayversion (10/07/2013) [-]
I feel bad for you, then. After over 70 years, the book that started the fantasy genre has been made into a movie - and not some ****** movie, but a masterpiece. Do you think the movie could be any better than it's been? I'm confident that if Tolkien himself was able to come back from the grave and watch that movie, to see his imagination come to life 70 years later in such spectacular fashion, he would be proud.

I just don't like the fact that they're taking one of the best books ever written and adding tons of ******** that never happened just so they can milk the book's movie rights for all the cash they can grab. Sure, the movie looks great, and the acting is extremely solid, but it in no way lives up to the book for me because of all the commercial ******** they're pulling.
User avatar #24 to #23 - demandsgayversion (10/07/2013) [-]
You're mad that they're adding stuff? It totally works in the universe, they're not adding anything that sucks. Don't be such a drama queen
User avatar #25 to #24 - theavatarspupil (10/07/2013) [-]
Believe me, I like the movies, they're fine. I just would prefer if they were more accurate to they're source material, that's all.
User avatar #26 to #25 - demandsgayversion (10/07/2013) [-]
I admit, I was ignorant of the reasons behind the changes until a few seconds ago when I looked it up. Apparently, a lot of that stuff is actually from Tolkien, if you read this link dresdencodak.tumblr.com/post/38238171936/where-the-extra-content-in-the-hobbit-came-from

I guess Tolkien added to The Hobbit later on, and also it's a way of showing that Bilbo is embellishing the tale. We're not watching The Hobbit, we're watching Bilbo WRITE The Hobbit.

Hmm... Well, I guess I've got more reading to do then.
User avatar #9 - imonagoat (10/07/2013) [-]
What show is this?
User avatar #11 to #9 - ilikewhales (10/07/2013) [-]
Sherlock, on BBC
User avatar #12 to #11 - imonagoat (10/07/2013) [-]
Is it a comedy?
User avatar #13 to #12 - ilikewhales (10/07/2013) [-]
No but it has a lot of comical moments.
It's a 2 series long show (with the 3rd is coming next month), with hour and a half long episodes. It's on Netflix if you have that, or you could find it easily online.
User avatar #14 to #13 - imonagoat (10/07/2013) [-]
Ohh sweet, thanks bud.

it takes like 3 days to pass over the 6 episodes and then you become addicted and you recall that they wont air the next 3 episodes before 2014.

Next month does seem to be a little early. Wiki said 2014, but take that with a grain of salt.

So... is a Study in pink good when it comes to the series' standard? Because I watched the first half of it and was bored to tears.
User avatar #43 to #42 - snowshark (10/07/2013) [-]
Well if the first half of the episode bored you I'm gonna need to know why it bored you if I'm going to know wether or not to recommend the rest of the series to you.

Honestly I didn't find a boring moment in the whole episode and only one boring moment in the whole series.
User avatar #55 to #43 - thebestpieever (10/07/2013) [-]
Well, I stopped when they are in the Taxi. I wasn't really engaged with this version of Watson nor this version of Holmes. Like, they weren't annoying but also not charming. And Holmes deductions made me want to pull my hair out. In the original stories they were a little bit lucky but in here they were just stupid. The kind of logical jumps Holmes performed while examining Watson's phone were just frustrating for me. Though a couple of them could be deduced by the viewer if they were just showed the phone. Which drives me to the fact that, in every single good mistery story the viewer should have the same information as the characters. That way you can solve the mistery with them.

Sherlock to me, by what I saw, seemed much more aimed at "Look at how clever Sherlock Holmes is" (not all that clever, but just written by a halfwit that doesn't know how to write cleverly) than, "Look, a mistery, Holmes will try -and succeed- to solve it and so can you". But perhaps that is just A Study in Pink.
User avatar #56 to #55 - snowshark (10/07/2013) [-]
That's just the phone. The logical leaps are actually clever and well written though since that is exactly what real forensic scientists look for and can deduce from an item. It is astounding the level of detail the trained eye can perceive. The writer is actually one of the best writers of T.V. alive at the moment, working on both Sherlock and Dr. Who and being a massive hit on both shows for good reason, anyway, I digress.

The phone is a demonstration of exactly how smart Holmes is with a little twist thrown in later. Watson picks up later in the episode and the back and forth between the two of them is built very well as the chemistry increases. This Holmes is most probably a high-functioning autistic and like all good Holmes/Watson chemistry we see the two of them bond and Watson becomes more Holme's carer than his assistant. Holmes isn't as cooky as other Holmes (E.G. RDJ's portrayal), he's much more on the nose and realistic and having worked with Autistic people (particularly Aspergers Syndrome, a high-functioning version unlike the many low-functioning ones) I am pretty sure that it was in the head of the writer though it is never stated.

Holmes is grating and irritating but there is a heart to his character that most outside of his house don't get to see, something that severely indeered him to the now massive fanbase and skyrocketed the actor's career to the point where he is now a villain in both Star Trek and The Hobbit.

I'd suggest you re-watch it and go the whole way through this time. The logic is sound, it's just that the phone in the car isn't important to the mystery, hence the audience wasn't given the time to really think it over. It 'is' important for establishing the chemistry between Holmes and Watson that grows over the first episode.
#45 to #42 - anon (10/07/2013) [-]
It is absolutely not the standard.
Even though the main plot is mostly obvious after about twenty minutes.
There are surprises in every episode (even Study in Pink); It's definitely worth watching.

The characters are great, the stories interesting, it gets much more intense with every episode and it's only six episodes so go watch it now.

correct me if I'm wrong but are those the actors of Merry and Bilbo from LOTR/Hobbit?

-Merry: Dominic Monaghan - No

The Hobbit:
-Bilbo: Martin Freeman - Yes

His name is Benedict Cumberbatch, sir, and you will now watch Sherlock.

His must be the single most British name in existence.
