I like the part when they build a double-decker two mast.

They're in the poll.

Also, 1SO, funny you put The Empty Hearse in your bottom five. Basically convinced me that Sherlock is not for me despite really liking A Scandal in Belgravia. For me, they got it right once. The other episodes are middling to bad.

The Empty Hearse broke the series. Terrible story - I'm not even sure there's a mystery, it's that muddled - told in an aggravating manner.

I mean, I didn't mind them not telling us how Sherlock did it, but they sure squandered that episode away by telling us all the ways he didn't do it. So boring.

It's a bad episode, but it does give you lots of good Sherlock/Watson interaction. And the follow-up is much worse.
