    With the David Tennant's Doctor Who regeneration ripoff on Christmas and the mess that was this last episode of Sherlock, it's clear to me Moffat honestly works better as a writer under someone.

    Well, technically he works under Mark Gatiss, since he's the show runner, and I believe Stephen Thompson wrote "The Sign of Three", did he not? Moffat's episode doesn't air until Sunday, so you have Thompson and Colm McCarthy to blame for last week's episode! :p

    Also, "David Tennant's Doctor Who regeneration ripoff"?

    SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 3:

    holy shit @ the ending. i donno how they will manage to explain Moriarty's return but its good to have him back tbh... because he's the only character who truly matches Sherlock. this fact is driven home further by this season's weak villain. the Augustus character was boring as fuck.

    i saw the whole "mind palace Appledore" trick coming the moment he had that convo with Sherlock at the restaurant. they really didn't need to make it seem like a big revelation towards the end of the episode.

    this season overall was the weakest. a lot of overplotting that really didn't go anywhere and felt all over the place. plus it didn't introduce any new memorable characters. the whole Mary twist did absolutely nothing for me and it felt kind of far fetched. only thing that really has me hooked to the show anymore is seeing how Moriarty makes a comeback.

    Matt Smith's regeneration couldn't have been more forced and the whole Amy hallucination just because David took the effort to go visit everyone.

    And Moffat was credited under the second episode in the opening credits, too, actually - it was written by all 3, ironically enough.

    I liked Magnusson a whole ton but I wasn't happy with that abrupt ending. That being said, it's great to have you-know-who coming back, because I did indeed, miss him.

    *sigh* didn't like that episode at all.

    -Spoiler-
    The whole "Mary being a psychopath" thing was almost interesting at the reveal but I don't feel like it did much of anything for the plot. The druggie side kick dude was cool, would like to see more of him. Magnussen was lame as hell, and it really wasn't much of a build up when they revealed "OMG WHOA HE PUT JOHN IN A PILE OF BURNING WOOD WOW GREAT VILLAIN THIS MAKES SENSE!" and the mind palace vault thing. Excited for seeing more of Moriarty, I guess. A new villain would have been great too though
    -Spoiler-

    Well. Till next season I guess.

    Gatiss and Moffat were only responsible for the ending of the episode, apparently.
