This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.

Because wow, that was patronizing.

I loved that scene in Elementary.

1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.

2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.

3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”

You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.

Additionally, Watson’s done good work for a number of years as a sober companion, not a manchild enabler. It’s quite literally her job to deconstruct people’s shitty self-defeating habits and demonstrate that there are better ways to live your life. She’s not in the business of humoring anyone or playing along with their tantrums, she’s in the business of fixing them. And what she does works! It gets spelled out explicitely in the text of the show: Sherlock himself admits that what’s changed about him, for the better, is her. 

This is the best show, THE BEST SHOW.

So I just got back last night from a brony convention in San Francisco. I was working a booth for a vendor friend, and let me tell you what happened:

We met a little girl who was there with her family. She…

Holy crap, Americans really are bananas.

Well, these assholes are.  There’s a streak of psycho that tends to run through these kinds of people.  

Down the road from me, a guy blew up the Bath Schoolhouse because “he didn’t want to pay taxes.”  Until Oklahoma, it was the largest terrorist attack on our soil yet.

Lots of dead children, because… taxes.

Then, they bitch about how the government killed those kids at Waco when their psycho parents kept them in a burning house to make a religious stand off with the Feds.

Holy shit, those poor darlings.
Thank God I don’t live there. I mean, the UK has its moments, but…bloody hell.

Oh yeah, when someone shows up at a town meeting screaming about taxes, you really worry these days.  

That infamous Michigan Militia group?  They take their kids out into the woods with them.  My brother and I stumbled across a cache of their weapons once.  

We were more worried about reporting it to the police because we thought they’d come and shoot us in our beds.  That crazy. 

Anytime you see this in the US, it’s always Militia types or what’s called “Sovereign citizens.”  Complete and total crazy, and armed.
