Sherlock Week: On Moriarty, a guest post by Jayla
I was hooked on Sherlock since day one. There is no other way to get around that fact. I will admit that I wasn’t a true fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories until after I watched the first season of BBC America’s Sherlock revamp. But I have come to appreciate them a lot more since the show has gained so much success, and with good reasoning. Sherlock’s visuals are stunning, the mysteries cunning, and the characters are positively entertaining.
Finally, he’s actually got a personality, albeit a screwy one. Let’s face it, we all love Jim Moriarty for the way he adds a little color to Sherlock’s life. With the likes of Irene Adler, Moriarty is the only adversary, so far, that’s given Sherlock as run for his money.
Jayla is finishing up her last semester as a graduate student and she couldn’t be more excited. She hopes to become a Youth Services librarian one day in the very near future. You can find her on the Internet at ladybluejay.comor on Twitter (@LBJReads).
