Episode 17: The Hounds of Baskerville
SPOILERS FOR THE HOUNDS OF BASKERVILLE! As you value your life or your reason keep away from the moor. It’s Episode 17! 17 steps in Baker Street! This makes us happy. Anywho… join Ardy, Curly, Marie, Turk, Taylor, and new BSBs Amy and Maria as we discuss, flail over, and debate the second episode of Sherlock’s new series. The modern update of Hounds is clever and full of intense character development. Rife with canon references, it’s still recognizable as the ACD classic, but with some twists. We discuss how Sherlock’s breakdown is crucial to what is to come, why the experiment on John needed to happen, and how poor dear Russell Tovey broke our hearts. Pleased with the Undershaw and Fletcher Robinson references, and debate over some other scenes, this is a full on discussion episode that we promise you’ll enjoy.
We also take questions from listeners. Does Sherlock have Aspergers? Why do we call next week’s episode The-Episode-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named? And is a new dance craze sweeping the nation? #DoTheMindPalace and find out.
