The Reichenbach Feels Playlist

The Reichenbach Feels Playlist - All your reichenbach Fall feels in a convenient playlist format

We here at 3 Chic Geeks are intensely familiar with the feeling of having ALL THESE FEELINGS about the Reichenbach Fall. We don’t know how Sherlock did it; we can’t get over what happened; the mere words “Goodbye, John” are enough to make us randomly burst into tears… we swear we don’t have problems. Now that Sherlock season 3 is thiiiiiiiis close to being filmed, we thought we’d give everybody another way of torturing themselves until that fateful day when Sherlock 3.1 hits the airwaves. So, the great and sinister force that is Freak Geek went through her music collection and put together a playlist that details EVERY SINGLE FEEL that you will feel… in the exact order of you feeling those feels. Ready to laugh, weep and rip your hair out? Read on to find out which songs made the list!

Disclaimer: If this playlist looks like it was made by Dean Winchester… that’s probably because it was. Don’t judge me. I only know like five albums. -FG

The Sherlock Tumblr Tag Drinking Game (or: A Study in Liver Disease)

So, you’ve survived a year, a FULL YEAR, since Reichenbach. Good job, you. In that time you’ve probably read (and written) fanfiction, seen enough fanart to last a lifetime, drank Sherlock tea, discovered the Red Pants tag and completely lost your sanity. Well, the bad news is that Sherlock season 3 does not start filming until March of this year; the good news is we’ve found a new way to occupy your time until the first photos of the actors on-set begin to trickle onto Tumblr.

Be warned, this drinking game is not for the weak of heart (or liver). This drinking game is the ULTIMATE drinking game, meant to get you through to season three… or die, in which case you’ll have to sell your soul to Crowley so you can live to see Season 3. The rules are simple: Get a drink. Go to the “sherlock” tag on Tumblr. See what comes up. If it’s on our list… drink accordingly. Ready? Let’s go.

Beyond SHERLOCK: Modern Sherlock Holmes Adaptations

modern sherlock beyond sherlock

It is a universally accepted fact that BBC Sherlock is THE only Sherlock Holmes adaptation set in the modern day. Except, you know, it isn’t. Now, before either Sherlock or Elementary graced the screens of our TVs, laptops and Tumblrs, there was quite a few modern-day versions of Sherlock. This is something that easily gets tossed aside in favor of squabbling over whether Lucy Liu or Martin Freeman made a better Watson, or whether today’s Sherlock Holmes would be a tall, dark and handsome sociopath with a taste for designer clothes or a grungy, gnarly, sassy hipster with more novelty t-shirts than Redbubble can stock.

We here at 3 Chic Geeks have picked out all the most popular Sherlock adaptations set in the modern day, and created a handy dandy little list for you all to consult while arguing. For obvious reasons, we shall disregard anything that was created before the year 2000 or is not set in the modern day. Also, since similar lists have been put together before, we’re going to make reading it worth your while by including silly doodles instead of actual photos. Sounds good? Okay, let’s take a look…
