So I finally got around to starting the second season. Heather and I watched it last night. Hell of a season starter, that first episode.
I enjoyed the first season, but the first time we started on the second, we only watched a tiny bit before turning it off, just because we wanted to see where it was headed. We didn't make a conscious choice to stop watching, but in retrospect, I realized I was really annoyed that they made Irene Adler a dominatrix, mainly because I was and still am sick to fucking death of the media fixation on BDSM, and portrayals of strong women as needing to be sexual sadists in some fashion, which I find demeaning and obnoxious. But I got over it, and it didn't end up being a terribly big deal.
Did they do 3 seasons of this and stop? I'm so out of the loop, I almost never watch TV or movies anymore.
