“gamecube is now considered a classic console”
We live together, we work together, Watson. When it comes to cases, there is no his or hers; there is partnership. I assist you, you assist me.
Can I just say how happy I am that there’s no sexual tension between these two, that they are partners and friends and there’s no “will they won’t they” which makes it really feel excellent in terms of crime procedural /puzzle of the week / drama that’s not about the two main character’s relationship? Really, it’s one of my favourite parts of the show, the fact that a man and a woman are equals, partners, and not at all interested in each other romantically. It’s a novel concept in TV with two leads of different genders.
Sherlock doesn’t see Joan as an underling. He sees her grow as an investigator and appreciates her skills. Joan is not a second to Sherlock. She is learning from him but is very quickly holding her own, she’s not looking for his validation and instead feels accomplishment in her own successes.
They are friends. They have personal issues and they work through them. They get on each others’ nerves at times but it’s never that trite, “you annoy me but I’m attracted to you” dance that’s so common in other shows. The drama comes from relationships outside of the Watson/Holmes duo and that makes for good stories because you have one who’s personally involved and the other who can act as a sounding board and voice of reason.
