The Adventure of the Missing Stocking
The writers of the hit TV series LOST (with my, um, help) take time out their busy schedule to write a a new Sherlock Holmes mystery.

Brilliant. Only one thing -- not enough flashbacks.
Throw in a couple of cylons, and you have a Battlestar Galactica story arc.
That was brilliant. Finally someone constructs a way to ask the original Holmes if he's For Real.
Only two criticisms, Matthew; one, there was no deluge of new, confusing and highly superfluous characters introduced during the narrative; and two, your characters engaged in dialog and moved the "plot" forward at least a little bit - the real writers of LOST would have resorted to many more silent, meaningful glares that are meant to convey a solemnity and seriousness of occasion, but do nothing whatsoever to advance the audience's comprehension of the "story" or, in fact, to entertain in anyway.
Does that sound like I'm a bit bitter?
Clever, caustic and well written. Thanks for this.
Why would cocaine make Sherlock Holmes sleepy? Cocaine is a stimulant.
A conspicuous absence of the word "singular," but other than that you had me going until the hippo bit.
"Egress" is a noun, dude. You can't "egress" from anything. You can "effect your egress" from something, I guess.
Main Entry: egress
Function: intransitive verb
: to go or come out
David: I think he was thinking of morphine.
Just had to tell you that I very much enjoy this blog. I spent this past Saturday laughing out loud so much that tears of joy sprang from my eyeballs. I was reading "favorite posts". I kept reading the punch lines out loud to my husband. The Queen is my hero.
A reasonable satire of much of the second season through last November, but, if you've been watching since the break, I hope you'll agree that the writers have advanced the plot quite a bit, and coherently at that. It's back in my top three shows. I'd love to see you parody 24, surely the riper show for satire.
