Sherlock – That Thing You Like #43

Sherlock and Moriarty slash!

SHERLOCK LIVES! THAT THING YOU LIKE couldn’t stay away from the classic-detective / tumblr-superstar that is BBC’s Sherlock – we’ve seen all of season three, and have organized our thoughts thusly into podcast form! As always, it’s a full spoiler smack-down, so be warned! But the show gave us a lot to discuss aside from plot points: Is Stephen Moffatt sexist? Did he totally ruin Irene Adler as a character? Why does the show make so many “Not gay!” jokes?

And finally, how does John not see the deep desire, the longing in Sherlock’s voice, as they stare at each other across the flat at 221B Baker Street? It had been a rough stretch for Dr. Watson, but Sherlock had always been there. As a friend. Or… something more? John often found himsel- WOOPS, SORRY GUYS, DIDN’T MEAN TO GO ALL TUMBLR / SLASHFIC ON YOU.

TTYL #9 – Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness - Podcast Review

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS is a summer blockbuster that, like IRON MAN 3, is proving to be divisive. What did two decidedly non-trekkies have to say about the film? Find out in That Thing You Like‘s definitive podcast review!

We boldly go (nailed it!) into spoilers, and talk about what makes the movie tick. The character stuff? All awesome. Spock and Kirk have some great moments, and Simon Pegg nearly steals the whole show. The plot? Decidedly less awesome.

Maybe the movie was never going to match the unexpected joy that was the 2009 reboot, but damn it, our hearts were ready to love.
