Sherlock (BBC) [spoilers]

...I rather didn't like how Moffat has once again turned his female characters into incredible plot devices. I mean the stories were good, the acting top notch... but come ON! Sister who has psycho-super brain powers because she wasn't hugged enough? Goddamn Jokeritis. THE ONCOMING STORM! THE EAST WIND! I like the cerebralness of it but... sheesh. While Sherlock and Mycroft were portrays of geniuses that were interesting, they did it too much with her so she became a plot device. Fine, maybe she's what super-duper geniuses are like, inhuman plot devices. But goddamn it Moffat, you might as well have had an ominous face-masked camera trick unseen shadow/blinky/forgetty monstroso stalk Scared Little Girl phoning the Doctor in that lost mind-airplane... have it be a library too. "Is the Don't Blinking Space Man My Mummy?!" :P

Mary's death was well done but... h'okay, now she's a hallucination telling Watson to once again be BFFs with Sherlock. Er fine. But... IDK. Moffat stop trying to be too clever.

I don't know. Profound Plot Twist/Device Women Characters. Moffat. Err.

But nonetheless these are amazing shows.

Stopped watching at the end of Series 2. It was just so full of itself. "Oh we're so clever and we want you to know we know you know how very clever we are"

This right here sums up a significant percentage of Moffat's problems over on Doctor Who.

His handling most of his major female characters in much the same way is another issue.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

A further significant percentage is that a lot of those plots aren't anywhere near as clever as he thinks they are.
