May I say, preach to this post? Because…. PREACH! I always think that Jane is an interesting take on Sherlock character. And I love Bruno for that.
The immediate dislike between Sherlock and Anderson… The way he “resent” this forensic team member. I thought I saw this kind of scene before, but not sure where or when.
Then I realized the infamous quote of Jane “He irks me. He’s irksome” to the forensic member on Mentalist pilot.

If you don’t get horny reading Fangoria, I’m Britney Spears “
Oh man, I think I found more reasons why I fond of these two characters. I blamed The Reichenbach Fall which made couldn’t stop thinking about every moment on Sherlock.
John: You’d care if they thought you were stupid or wrong.
Sherlock: No, that would just make them stupid or wrong.
Keep your eyes fixed on me.
Please, could you do this for me?
