Did You Know?


The title is a play on "The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter", the short story that introduced Sherlock's brother Mycroft. Incidentally, Sherlock (2010) also changed the title from "Greek" to "geek"; however, it was mentioned in passing rather than the title of the episode. See more »


The FBI believes that Lily was kidnapped between the library and her apartment, that they say is a few blocks away, at 108th St and Amsterdam (Upper West Side); which is indeed close to the library at Columbia University where she is Harlan's student. Watson is to canvass that area, but she basically finds a witness on E 7th St, between 1st and 2nd Ave, 9 miles away in the East Village, the complete opposite area of Manhattan. See more »

That might sound strange, given what we know about her, but... I'm a strange bloke, aren't I? She fit. And I fear that... what we had can't be replicated.

Losing interest fast.
4 September 2018 | by rsvp321See all my reviews

I suspect in desperation, every episode the writers are making social agendas and special interest groups the driving force for the plot. Mystery and suspense are secondary.

This episode, it's global warming, rising sea level hysteria.

It's the end of the season, and they haven't built any interest for next season. I'm sure they will rush it in the last episode.

...which will be the last episode for me. This series is so awfully boring, now!
