Look at them. Look at the brothers.
Look at the haughty raised chin because appearances must always be kept, even if you’ve been caught on the hop by emotions or at the gym.
Look at the posture, ditto on appearances. Whether in a morning suit or lycra, a Holmes maintains his posture. And his composure.
And the hand. The left hand and the curling fingers of impatience? Frustration? Frustration because they are brothers and love eachother really but it can’t easily be expressed?
Was this directed? Did one watch the other and take the gestures on?
Acting. It’s rather lovely. Especially when done so blinking well.
I love me holmes bros <3
I adore the Holmes boys.

#can i mention how cool it is to have a variation of sherlock holmes where he says stuff like this #because it’s important #and this episode is my favourite so far because it’s surprisingly accurate #and it was just great to hear him say this #because sherlock holmes is of course intelligent and a modern sherlock would know this #and even though this holmes does have that social crass and indelicacy he’s softer in some ways to the others #which is what makes him different and a new take and interesting to watch #he’s a rare fictional example of a character who is pragmatic and driven and a bit socially blunt but also has a firm moral intelligence too #just because a character can be blunt and rude and not understand that they’ve just insulted someone doesn’t have to mean #that they don’t understand right from wrong (via teacupsandcyanide)
The irony being, of course, that this is actually much more in tune with the original, ACD Holmes than many interpretations.
The original Holmes went after Moriarty because Moriarty lived off the suffering and misery of other people.
She hates her own clones, she burns her own clones. Frankly, you’re a career break for the right therapist.

still completely blown away by how amazingly well done this little guy is—they gave him an incredibly expressive face without anthropomorphicising it one bit. he doesn’t have a shorter snout or bigger eyes or a more rounded forehead or anything, he looks exactly like a raccoon. but you can see every little irritated or devious or sad thought he has.
just… amazing. i want that animation team to win some fucking awards.
