Yeah, they did. And I'm not sure they even killed her off "in" the movie, since she practically died before the title card appeared. And yeah, don't bother watching the rest of the movie. Because it really was horrible.

I did try to watch BBC Sherlock but... sigh. I heard that Irene Adler's debut was her naked on a couch... for reasons. Of course. *eyeroll*

Elementary is fantastic. And yes, it is very, very difficult to not ship Sherlock/Joan because they are wonderful together. But the producers, etc. promised that they didn't make Watson a female to hook them up together so ... what can one do? *sigh*.

WTH?? Even Rachel Dawes's death (worst character in the latest Batman's franchise IMO who was only there to give Batman a so-called love interest) was at least in the middle of the movie and had some sort of importance.

Isn't that called 'the woman in the fridge' theory or something? Disgusting.

Yeah, in the BBC Sherlock, Irene Adler is a dominatrix so of course the only way she can throw off Sherlock is by appearing naked for their first meeting (because he's supposed to figure someone out in 30 seconds by looking at their coat or something). This was really stupid. She was supposed to be attractive to Sherlock because she was as intelligent as he is but it looked like he was only interested in her because she was dominating him and was always alluding to sex.

And let's not talk about how Sherlock outsmarted her because her secret password was about how she had feelings for him and he was all like 'hah, woman has feelings, woman is weak!' *eyeroll* And at the end, there was a ludicrous sequence with her being saved by him from dangerous Muslim terrorists. Sexist, racist, you name it. This episode almost turned me off Sherlock for good. Moffat is lucky the Watson/Sherlock duo works so well. He's the reason why I no longer watch Doctor Who BTW.

I think I'm going to try Elementary then. :)

So sorry it took me this long to reply this...

Got distracted with work, kids and then needed to catch up on the latest Elementary... ;)

Yep, Irene was definitely fridged. Which is as disgusting and upsetting as it sounds, especially since I believe the main reason why she was got rid off was to pacify the Holmes/Watson shippers.

LOLOL! OMG. that is so ridiculously bad, it's actually funny. Seriously? Who writes this?

In the interest of full disclosure, Elementary does hint that Irene Adler exists... and was [spoiler] fridged by Moriarty in Sherlock's past. But there are also strong indications that she may not be dead and may even have faked her own death. It can go either way.
