Diving in quickly to say...  
If I were in the UK I'd be settling down in front of the telly right now - new episode of Sherlock airs in around 15 minutes. However I am not in the UK; it's 6.48am, I'm about to get ready for work, and I have a whole day to get through before I can hope to see this.

I'm leaving the pc turned on today, with Peerblock running, so as soon as I get home I can start getting my Sherlock fix. I'll have to stay away from my usual haunts while waiting for the d/l to finish - will probably just reply to
earlier comments here and that will be it.

And just in case my pc goes on the fritz today, my laptop is set up with both Peerblock and U-Torrent. And if my modem should die during the day, well my mobile broadband stick is fully charged.

One way or another, by about 8.30pm tonight I shall be sitting down to watch The Empty Hearse.

Thirteen hours, fortytwo minutes to go....

Oh that's too bad! Especially as it's your fault I sat down to watch S1 in the first place *g*.
would you like a copy with a parrot and a wooden leg

I know I saw a list of worldwide airdates, but now I can't find it anywhere....

Thanks for the kind offer... I should know after tonight whether I need it. :D

I saw somewhere tonight that it is slated to air on the 19th? But not sure if that is USA-wide or only a couple of places?

We saw it last night and it was glorious. :D

Oh brilliant!
Trepkostrepkos on January 2nd, 2014 12:51 am (UTC)
I enjoyed it!

So did I! Wooh, roll on Monday for the next fix.
eveningblueeveningblue on January 2nd, 2014 03:39 am (UTC)
So what did you think? I loved it!
miwahni: Sherlock Trafalgar Squaremiwahni on January 2nd, 2014 11:12 am (UTC)
On the whole, yes, loved it! Will prob. start a new post under a spoiler cut to talk about it.
sunray45: Sherlock & Johnsunray45 on January 2nd, 2014 04:01 am (UTC)
What a clever girl! All that faffing about just for Sherlock - but it definitely is worth it. *bg*

Do I have to wait long before I see it? Hint! Hint! Grovel!
miwahni: Sherlock John facepalmmiwahni on January 2nd, 2014 11:42 am (UTC)
Oh it is SO worth it!
And you don't have to grovel. Look at everything that you've shared with me over the years - of course you won't have to wait long.
Having said that - I've been sitting here for the last 20 minutes trying to work out what burning program I have that will do it - can you remind me? DVD Cloner won't recognise the file, IMGBurn doesn't want to do it, and Express Burn wants $70 for the privilege. I can't remember what I used last time! It's a HDTV file type. If worse comes to worst I can send you a usb stick?
sunray45: Sherlock & Johnsunray45 on January 2nd, 2014 12:09 pm (UTC)
Why on earth do they keep changing all these different file types? I wouldn't have a clue which programme to use as I think most of my programmes are out of date now. I have the same trouble with my DVD recorder - it comes out in some weird format and I can't remember now what it is.

Looks like USB stick is the way to go. Thank you so much for thinking of me. *HUGS*
miwahni: Sherlock Trafalgar Squaremiwahni on January 2nd, 2014 12:23 pm (UTC)
Okay then - in that case do you mind waiting until after Monday 13th? Then I can send all three at once :-)
sunray45: Baby Lestradesunray45 on January 2nd, 2014 01:42 pm (UTC)
Of course I don' mind waiting.

Ummm..If there are three episodes, wouldn't the third one be shown on the 16th? Or have I got everything arse-up and back-to-front again! It's happening a lot lately. *bg*
miwahni: Sherlock Wrong animatedmiwahni on January 2nd, 2014 08:38 pm (UTC)
No, the UK air dates are a bit arsey versey. 1st January, followed by Sunday the 5th and Sunday the 12th. Ergo 13th by the time I can d/l the final ep.
Love your icon, he looks so young there! Must say I prefer him now though.
sunray45: Sherlock & Johnsunray45 on January 3rd, 2014 02:12 pm (UTC)
That's nice of them. Don't have to wait so long between episodes.
miwahni: Sherlock Trafalgar Squaremiwahni on January 4th, 2014 08:38 am (UTC)
Oh yes, wonderful - if we didn't have to wait two effing years for the next series! *g*

Waaah - I'm on the wrong side of the world with no cleverness for finding/downloading it - waaaaah! Hope you got home to find it beautifully waiting for you. I shall be hiding from spoilers somewhere... (*sniffs sadly*)
miwahni: Sherlock horror facemiwahni on January 2nd, 2014 11:45 am (UTC)
It didn't take long to set up - all you need is uTorrent installed - use the search box there to look for sherlock s3 torrent, and up it pops. Only took a bit over an hour to d/l too.
I run peerblock as well, just as a safety net.

Good luck with avoiding spoilers. I saw a joke last night - a picture of Sherlock, with a caption relating to "the fandom that crashed the internet" and I reckon it won't be far wrong.
byslantedlight: Bookshelf colour (grey853).byslantedlight on January 6th, 2014 01:46 am (UTC)
Don't think I can manage it on my computer, but I think I've convinced my sister and b-i-l that it'd be a good idea, cos they want to see it too. Sounds like they've torrented before even, so now I just need to keep reminding them until it actually happens... *g* I'd try it on my laptop, but it's being such a bugger these days, that I'm not sure it wouldn't either completely kill it, or else I'd crash the interweb in the attempt...

I've seen various headlines about it - including one about fandom's affect on the ep, even though of course I didn't read the story. I'm very much blocking my ears and eyes and singing lalalalalalalalalala and being hopeful... *g*
miwahni: Sherlock Don't be deadmiwahni on January 6th, 2014 09:41 am (UTC)
I've seen the odd article about fandom having an effect on the show's writers but when you dig into it, all but ONE of the cases used to illustrate their point can also be found in canon. I think fandom likes to exaggerate its own importance.Anyway, sooner or later you'll be able to see it so see what you think.

Ooh, twas intense! I hope you enjoy it.
miwahni: Sherlock Sheet and Johnmiwahni on January 2nd, 2014 11:46 am (UTC)
It was, I did, and I think I'll need to watch it a few more times just to take it all in.
Love your icon.
gillyp: Boosh - Photoshopgillyp on January 2nd, 2014 01:03 pm (UTC)
I'll need to watch it a few more times... My feelings exactly. I was a wee bit tired when I was watching and there were times I found myself more than a bit bewildered. :)
Icon be splendid indeed. I can claim no credit for it, alas.
Calise: John&Sherlockcali_se on January 2nd, 2014 08:10 pm (UTC)
So, what did you think? I haven't posted about it yet because I need to watch it again. I enjoyed it on the whole, but I came away with mixed feelings about one or two things (don't want to elaborate here, so as not to spoil your friends who haven't seen it yet). Great to have them back, anyway. :-)
miwahni: Sherlock horror facemiwahni on January 2nd, 2014 08:42 pm (UTC)
I loved it. It wasn't all perfect, and I'm planning on blogging about it tonight once I've had a chance to take it in, but I'm overall really happy about it. I think I know the bits you mean, and will be interested in your opinion.
And yes, will need to see it a few more times for it all to sink in.
Calise: BenCcali_se on January 2nd, 2014 09:06 pm (UTC)
will be interested in your opinion.
Maybe via email/pm or something - safer that way! ;D
