Is this a joke?

Unbelievable CRAP. Just a bunch of pretentious pseudo-psychological twists...

Wow. Wow and wow. I'm afraid this is not an exclaim of admiration, more so on the fact that I can honestly say this episode is perhaps the biggest let down for a finale in TV history. What once was an incredible show in almost all ways has become an over-the-top Hollywood B-movie blockbuster because of this crap excuse for an episode. What were the writers thinking, or were they taking the same stuff Sherlock was? What happened to the intelligent dialogue? The brilliant direction? The satisfying plot twists and solutions? The humour? This episode was literally a cross between Shutter Island and Saw, only worse. 10 x worse I might say. 90 minutes consisting of three blokes on an island controlled by a 'supervillain' who happens to be the third Holmes sister who is so smart she can somehow manipulate all who come across her into performing her every bidding. I hate to say this but at times I was laughing. At how absurd the plot was, then again I'm starting to doubt whether there was one? Perhaps it was in Sherlocks mind palace? If they do return for series 5 I look forward to the bs they'll attempt to conjure up that will erase this nonsense, that in actual fact Eurus was being mentally manipulated by Redbeard the dog, who in turn told her to tell Sherlock that he was in fact Jim Moriarty's father, the real criminal mastermind barking orders from the galaxy Andromeda. I have been such a great fan of the show since it's inception and am honestly trying my hardest to fork out some praise for this episode but it is near impossible. Such a shame considering the last one was arguably the best of the bunch.

How the hell did this get past a rough draft?

OK. This is designed to please the viewers with the lowest IQ. Trying to surpass all previous installments and to impress the low-minded with cheap tricks and ridiculous situations. ..

They've lost a loyal fan...

i've never written a review here before. I logged into my account just to express my utter disbelief and disappointment. I can't wrap my head around this episode. It feels like the whole show turned into a terrible parody of itself. These 90 minutes made perfectly no sense whatsoever. Full of unanswered questions regarding the previous episodes, we are left with several plot holes, ridiculous "twists" and some bad CGI action effects. All literally spitting the past 7 years in the face. I can't believe the writers seriously thought this was a fitting ending. It's not even the queer-baiting that annoys me the most. It's the fact that nothing adds up. The whole thing was like a bad acid trip. I'm honestly baffled.

"The Final Problem"? more like the Final Season of Sherlock

Creators of this show are geniuses or dumb? We will never know

I'd give it a zero if I could. This was such a bad episode in so many ways. First off, they didn't address the previous episode's cliffhanger of Eurus shooting John. It's a minor thing, but the explosion special effects were quite poorly done. The episode was very confusing at times just with the way it was shot with what was going on during the flashbacks. But the main problem is Eurus(you might even say... the final problem). There is NO way anyone could control people like she did. None. There were too many things with her that nobody could be fooled by! Especially Sherlock Holmes, regarding there being no glass in her cell. There is no way Sherlock wouldn't have noticed that immediately, unless he was playing along, which it certainly didn't seem like. How could Eurus and Moriarty have planned ALL THAT in five minutes? Who the hell was Sherlock talking to if there wasn't a real plane? Did they not show Eurus burning that house down? How is it suddenly not burnt to ashes? How did John escape the well via a rope if he was CHAINED TO THE GROUND. How did John, a doctor, not immediately recognise human bones? Why would they EVER think putting Eurus back in that place is a good idea, claiming she's safe this time. Imo she should have gotten the death sentence. This whole episode seemed like a drug trip. I HOPED it was a drug trip because of how bad it was, despite that already being overdone in this series. Literally the only good things about this episode were 1. Mrs. Hudson and 2. there was no cliffhanger.

I don't get the point of this episode

Another comically evil villain, can Moffat write anything else?

I love Sherlock, I've loved it for years. I've been watching the show since I was 11 years old. I'm now almost 17. Sherlock has helped me grow into a love for film making, literature, science and art. I had so much hope that this show would make a come back after a fairly mediocre third season. I truly believed that Moffat and Gatiss would pull their heads in and make something of the dwindling story lines they'd built so many years ago with these two fantastic characters. .. is a cinema website serving you dear visitors 7/24 to give information about all movies, now playing movies, show location of nearest theaters and sessions, trailers of upcoming movies and information about actors and actresses, their biographies, videos and photographs. is the only interactive website where visitors can interact with each other using Facebook, Twitter and Google. is a global website using highly advanced web technologies and is served in 7 different languages apart from English and can give the visitors same service from the countries where these languages are spoken.
