Hurray! Another new fan video by HFS (High Functioning Sociopath).
HighFunctioning Sociopath Note:
This one took forever. At times it looks like I channeled Michael Bay. Apologies. I won’t apologize for the innuendo in the final sequence. I don’t actually believe there is anything but a life-long friendship between Holmes and Watson, but an accidental pairing of two clips made me laugh and after that everything just fell into place. I ended up going back and adding all of the Mycroft reaction shots and laughed more. So I kept it.
Hurray! Another exclusive video from HighFunctioningSociopath and some exciting news. It seems HFS is strapped for time and would rather make videos than build and maintain a website to show the videos for now, so we are going to be hosting them for a bit. (And yes, there are more in the works.) — Watson, Admin
[From HighFunctioningSociopath: This is actually one of a pair done post-Reichenbach. The one from Sherlock’s point of view was started first but hasn’t been finished. This one just seemed to come more easily. Martin Freeman was so powerful in this episode.]
Very excited! Our first Guest. Our first non-YouTube fan music video.
Since all the True Friends of the BBC series Sherlock will be keeping their fingers crossed for a Big Night for Team Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch in particular (although a second BAFTA for Martin Freeman would be nice), I agreed this was an appropriate choice.
Thank You Shout Out @HighFunctioning Sociopath!
Note from HighFunctioning Sociopath: This is for H who likes her video like good scotch — neat and straight.

KatrinDepp is one of my favorite fan video creators and this is a tour de force. My chest actually tightens every time I watch this video. So grab a hankie and watch a mini-masterpiece of John Watson, Sherlock Holmes and the Reichenbach Fall.
p.s. I’ll be posting one of her comedy in a few hours to heal a bit of the pain…
I’ve seen the “Hitler Reacts” meme for dozens of other topics, but I spewed tea all over my cat when I saw this one for BBC Sherlock. (I’ve been know to walk around saying “I should have stayed in anime like Stalin” when I’ve been particularly depressed about how long we have to wait for Season 3. We are definitely The Fandom Who Waits…)
FYI, the actual German movie, The Downfall, is brilliant as well.
I’ve been waiting for a chance to start sharing some of my favorite fan videos because most of them contain bits from Season 2 of BBC Sherlock, but now I’m free at last, free at last. However, I’m certain some of you are feeling a bit down after The Fall. Okay, in total and complete shock. So here’s a little something that shows even really horribly offensive movies can have value.
[Note: I love Andrew Scott’s Moriarty in this. It shows there’s a fine line between genius and doofus…]
Technically, Sherlock Holmes would now be classified as ASBD, anti-social behavioral disorder. It’s the bigger basket for lumping sociopathic and low-level psychopathic behavior. But, frankly, I prefer the TCIHNPD (Tragically Cool, Incredibly Hot Narcissistic Personality Disorder).
And I’m certain Johnson & Johnson will have some medication for that shortly… (You just know that if Sherlock had been raised in the U.S., he would have been slapped onto Ritalin or Adderall after the first day of pre-school and doped into submission for the rest of his youth. How boring.)
Just to remind viewers of how smashing the first episode of Season 2 of BBC’s Sherlock was, here’s a video from one of my favorite fan music video creators, KatrinDepp (whom I suspect has already seen Dark Shadows this weekend). She does some amazing changes with color changes and repeats so “don’t blink.”
Continuing with my impromptu theme of unexpectedly successful musicals that produced fan videos (this song also has been done in an even more successful Star Trek reboot edition), enjoy this musical question from the Broadway production of Legally Blonde.
