muh.'s rating of the film Sherlock: The Abominable Bride

(1.5) gatiss' sherlock has the problem of forcefully trying to be the coolest kid on the block through visual flair and continually putting down everyone who isn't the show's hero. it never stops slapping you with "look how cool this is", "this is soo complex", "that's diabolical innit" but never really structuring the story so that you can realize it. you're told it's like that and god forbid if you disagree.
