THE REICHENBACH FALL ALCOHOL 100% OPTIONAL DRINKING GAME & WATCHALONG
When: Friday, April 18 at 8:30 pm US Eastern time (convert to your date/time)
Where: The Giant Chat of Sumatra
- A copy of BBC Sherlock episode The Reichenbach Fall.
- A graduated cylinder, kitchen measuring cup, or other measury-type thing to drink from.
- The beverage of your choice, which totally doesn’t have to be alcoholic. Water, soda, tea—whatever shakes your boat!
Ah, the fandom drinking game. A fun idea, but not everybody drinks alcohol, so it’s hard to play with a large group. UNTIL NOW. Sherlock fans have been given an unprecedented opportunity to let everybody play and stay true to the show…
Bring anything you’d like to drink, play the game, and at the end of the night we’ll science it up so hard and work out whether you’d have gotten a little tipsy or needed Lestrade to bail you out of jail if you’d actually been drinking alcohol.
Anyone who likes the show is invited, even if you’ve never been to a watchalong before.
Since a couple people have asked: the rules will be simple, so we’ll divide into teams and review rules at the start of the chat on Friday
Well, this took longer than I thought.
Backstory: after Hearse aired on the BBC, @CameronYardeJnr sugggested a Molly spin-off called Molly Hooper Investigates. In my mind, this is what the opening would be like as an animated series. The music would be jaunty and sweet, the colours all pastels, and Louise Brealey’s voice would take you through a monologue about breakfast with Toby and suddenly…chopped ears.
Basically death and cotton candy. In addition to the Sherlock cast, there’ll be some new characters too, like Helen-Louise’s talking brain-in-a-jar. She’s a good listener.
This year, my boyfriend James really wanted to get me into watching BBC’s Sherlock with him. And so in oder to get me ready for season 3 (I never watched any of it before..) we had a proper Sherlock catch-up during Christmas, watching all episodes from previous seasons and now… not only I’m totally hooked up but also I cannot believe it’s already all over for another year :(
