Favorite Sherlock Moments



Sometimes I can't get enough of something I really love, and I just have to talk about it twice or more. I'm loving this BBC's Sherlock. It's so good, and it's not always serious. Sometimes it has its sweet and funny moments/dialogs between the characters (especially Sherlock and John, of course). Here are some of my favorite ones:

Sherlock Holmes: The name's Sherlock Holmes and the address is 221B Baker Street. Ck. Afternoon!

Sherlock Holmes: Okay, You've got questions...
John Watson: Yeah, where are we going?
Sherlock Holmes: Crime scene. Next?
John Watson: Who are you? What do you do?
Sherlock Holmes: What do you think?
John Watson: I'd say... private detective... 
Sherlock Holmes: But?
John Watson: But the police don't go to private detectives.
Sherlock Holmes: I'm a consulting detective. Only one in the world, I invented the job.
John Watson: What does that mean?
Sherlock Holmes: Means when the police are out of their depth, which is always, they consult me.

Sherlock Holmes: Shut up.
Inspector Lestrade: I didn't say anything.
Sherlock Holmes: You were thinking, it's annoying.

(after checking the victim's body in crime scene)
Inspector Lestrade: Got anything?
Sherlock Holmes: Not much.
Anderson: She's German. "Rache". It's German for revenge. She could be trying to tell us something--
Sherlock Holmes: (slams door) Yes, thank you for your input.

(Sherlock sends text messages to John)

John Watson: Well? You asked me to come, I'm assuming it's important.
Sherlock Holmes: Oh yeah, of course. Can I borrow your phone?
John Watson: My phone?
Sherlock Holmes: Don't want to use mine. Always a chance my number will be recognised. It's on the website.
John Watson: Mrs. Hudson's got a phone.
Sherlock Holmes: Yeah, she's downstairs. I tried shouting but she didn't hear.
John Watson: I was the other side of London!
Sherlock Holmes: There was no hurry.
(a few minutes later, Sherlock asks John to send a text)
John Watson: You've brought me here... to send a text.
Sherlock Holmes: Text, yes. The number on my desk.

Dr. John Watson: Why didn't I think of that? 
Sherlock Holmes: Because you're an idiot. No, no, no, don't look like that. Practically everyone is.

Sgt Sally Donovan: Are these human eyes?
Sherlock Holmes: Put those back!
Sgt Sally Donovan: They were in the microwave.
Sherlock Holmes: It's an experiment!



(poor Anderson, lol :P)

(nearly the end of episode)
Sherlock Holmes: Why have I got this blanket? They keep putting this blanket on me.
Inspector Lestrade: Yeah, it's for shock.
Sherlock Holmes: I'm not in shock.
(a few minutes later, Sherlock explains about what happened)
Sherlock Holmes: Actually, do you know what? Ignore me.
Inspector Lestrade: Sorry?
Sherlock Holmes: Ignore all of that. It's just the er... the shock talking.
Inspector Lestrade: Where are you going?
Sherlock Holmes: I just need to... talk about the rent.
Inspector Lestrade: I've still got questions.
Sherlock Holmes: What now? I'm in shock! Look, I've got a blanket!


(Sherlock is shooting the wall)
John Watson: What the hell are you doing?!
Sherlock Holmes: Bored.
John Watson: What?
Sherlock Holmes: Bored! (shoots) Bored! (shoots) Don't know what's got into the criminal classes. Good job I'm not one of them.
Dr. John Watson: So you take it out on the wall?
Sherlock Holmes: Ah, the wall had it coming.




....and many more.

Currently Addicted to: Sherlock

Yes, it's the same genius man we are talking about, but in the different media and actors.


Sherlock adalah serial TV Inggris yang ditayangkan di BBC One dan merupakan versi modern dari cerita detektif Sherlock Holmes-nya Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Versi modern? Ya, ketika menonton serial ini, jangan harap kalian bisa menemukan kereta kuda seperti di film Sherlock Holmes yang disutradarai Guy Ritchie. Bahkan, di serial ini, Sherlock menggunakan alat-alat modern selama meneliti kasus, sebut saja laptop dan handphone (beri hitam dan apel! How cool!). Sepertinya memang sengaja dibuat demikian, supaya generasi muda seperti saya (ceileh) lebih nyambung nontonnya. Hmm... Gak juga sih, kalau saya mah mau yang versi jadul juga babaaaattttt!!! *fans berat Holmes*

Seperti yang kita tahu (siapa yang nggak tahu Sherlock Holmes, hah? Siapa?! Sini maju kalo berani! *galak mode*), Sherlock Holmes adalah satu-satunya "consulting detective" di dunia ini. Ia selalu ditemani oleh partner-nya, John Watson, seorang mantan tentara sekaligus dokter. Sherlock juga mesti berhadapan dengan archenemy-nya yang merupakan "consulting criminal" yaitu Moriarty dan wanita pertama yang mengambil tempat di hatinya, Irene Adler. Oh iya, jangan lupakan Inspector Lestrade, Mrs. Hudson, dan kakak Sherlock, Mycroft Holmes.

Sherlock Holmes diperankan dengan brilian oleh Benedict Cumberbatch, sedangkan peran John Watson dimainkan oleh Martin Freeman (peran ini membuahkannya sebuah BAFTA Awards kategori Best Supporting Actor!). Jangan bandingkan akting mereka dengan Robert Downey Jr dan Jude Law yaaa, karena mereka masing-masing punya ciri khas dalam memainkan peran dan berada dalam dua adaptasi yang berbeda. Honestly, I hate someone who likes to compare them. I love all of them!

Sherlock and John in action!

Sherlock pertama kali ditayangkan tahun 2010, terdiri dari 2 series (season kalau di Amerika) yang sudah tayang (dan baru saja berakhir kemarin malam hiks) dengan 3 episode berdurasi 90 menit di masing-masing series nya. Eits, tenang dulu. Series 3 sedang diproduksi kok yaayyyy!!!!

Masing-masing episode nya menyadur cerita-cerita Sherlock Holmes karangan Doyle, hanya dibuat lebih modern dan ada perubahan sedikit. Semacam re-working lah.

Satu kata, sembilan huruf, untuk Sherlock:


(source: fuckyeahsherlock.tumblr.com)

Tiap episode dikemas sangat rapi, dilengkapi dengan akting keren dua tokoh utama yang ganteng-ganteng itu (saya jatuh cintaaaaa sama Benedict Cumberbatch, help!), cerita, musik, sampai hal terkecil pun tak luput dari kata BRILLIANT. Nggak selalu serius, kadang kita juga dibuat tertawa oleh tingkah Sherlock dan hubungan antara Sherlock dan John yang kocak. Very, very, very recommended for you guys, especially Sherlock Holmes fans (of course!), detective fans, and British guy fans (I know a lot of you love British guys!).
Thumbs up for Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss! (FYI, Mark Gatiss plays Sherlock's brother Mycroft Holmes in Sherlock)
Saking fenomenalnya, serial ini diganjal dua BAFTA Awards, satu untuk Martin Freeman dan satu untuk Best Drama Series (Benedict Cumberbatch juga dapat nominasi Best Actor, tapi nggak menang). Rating IMDb nya pun tinggi: 9.0/10. So, buat apa nunggu, guys? BURUAN TONTON!!!

Cumberbatch and Freeman; Sherlock won BAFTA Awards for Best Drama Series!

Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012!

First posting in 2012!



HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This posting would look like exactly like last year's. Actually, there's not much to talk about because I rarely update this blog. And 2011 for me is... Hmm, so-so. Saya tidak menunjukkan peningkatan yang tajam dalam pelajaran (saya memang pemalas -_-) tapi saya menunjukkan peningkatan dalam hal fangirling! (LONG LIVE FANGIRL!) xD

In 2011, I felt like I war the stupidest person in the Earth. Lho kenapa? Teman-teman saya sudah merencanakan akan kuliah di mana, sudah belajar dengan giat, lho saya? Saya bisanya cuma duduk depan laptop, nonton film atau main Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town dimana karakternya baru punya anak dan mau memasuki tahun ke empat. Oh iya, karakter yang saya mainkan itu duitnya udah banyak loh.

Tuh kan jadi pengen main lagi. *tampar pipi sendiri*

Oke, balik lagi. Kalau ditanya saya pengen kuliah di mana, saya akan jawab UI. Heck yeah, who doesn't want to? Tapi kalau ditanya mau ngambil jurusan apa......... saya akan jawab film making. Lho emang di UI ada jurusan kayak gitu? Ya enggak lah. Nah dari situ lah kata 'galau' yang lagi ngetrend dipake anak-anak remaja se-Indonesia menimpa hidup saya.

Ah, it's not a good time for galau-ing right friends? It's time to share good and bad memories that happened to me in 2011!

1. January - Fresh start
Finished my 1st draft of novel and sent it to the publisher. Harap-harap cemas nungguin hasilnya, keringat dingin, sekaligus rasa pesimisnya makin berkobar. But I still could wish Adam Lambert a very wonderful 29th birthday.

2. February - Rotten
Nothing important happened. Sad.

3. March - #horrorshortstory and the birth of a dream
I started to post/tweet about #horrorshortstory. Read the first episode (Blackout edition) and second episode (Hospital edition). Episode ke dua, cukup membuat beberapa teman saya bergidik ketakutan. Yes!
Oh, and... why did I say "the birth of a dream"? Yeah, ini bulan dimana saya makin pengen jadi sutradara karena drama Tri Mas Ketir. Dimana saya baru ngerasain kata 'galau' itu.

4. April - Alan Wake era and the death of a dream
Had some problem with some friends. Not friends 'friends', but just ordinary friends. I wrote them a super random letter. Don't read it, it's random and it's not recommended.
And it was the first time for me to get really really excited and addicted to one game and finished it just about a month! (I could play games only in weekend) The game is called Alan Wake. You guys should play it, especially for horror-thriller-mystery lover like me. Recommended!
Wait, wait... "The death of a dream"?! No, it had nothing to do with the director/filmmaker thingy. It was about the novel draft I sent to the publisher. It got rejected. But it's okay... Kegagalan adalah keberhasilan yang tertunda :)

5. May - Criminal Minds era
I started to watch Criminal Minds and fell in love for it! Great TV series! SPENCER REID, I LOVE YOU!
One more.... Hugh Jackman tweeted me on Twitter! *happy tears*

It really was a random tweet. I never thought that he would reply.
6. June - The end of sweet academic year
I was preparing myself to be a 12th grader. I couldn't leave my 11th grader friends... They're so kind. I love you guys. Oh, and the only posting I posted is Birthdays in June (Too busy, whooops). Love those guys :)

7. July - Pretty Little Liars era and best day of my life #1
Found another good TV series called Pretty Little Liars. Girls, watch it! Still didn't forget Criminal Minds though :)
I was being a 12th grader. XII IPA 7.
And best day of my life... I WATCHED 30 SECONDS TO MARS! Finally... guys, I still couldn't believe that I saw Jared, Shannon, and Tomo right in front of my eyes! :')

8. August - Leto obsession and comic maker era
Jared Leto in Hugo Boss made me almost forget to post my previous grade's final English assignment: comic. It was called Will & Harry: Modern Corpses.

9. September - I'M SEVENTEEN!
I really had a sweet seventeen birthday.... Sweetest birthday I could ever imagine :)

10. October - BUSY
Sorry, this page doesn't exist.

11. November - Best day of my life #2
I WATCHED JASON MRAZ! GYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! Okay, done, it's one of the best days of my life. Wait, did I cry? Oh God, YES. It was beautiful. GYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! And this blog, Geek in the Green is 3 years old! Yay!

12. December - Website thingy and closing of 2011
Finished my website (VISIT IT! TOLD YA, VISIT IT!) and I wished Jared Leto and Zach Mills a very wonderful birthday. I love them :) and it was my last post of 2011.

I hope... Well, I can't say that. I always say "I hope" but it never happens. So, I'd say...

I will make my parents proud. I will study hard. I will reach my dream. I will finish my books and movies. I will be a good fangirl. I will lose some weight.

I WILL.
Don't look back on yesterday! :)
