Re: “Sherlock Holmes purists will be disappointed in The Final Adventure

Ok. So I want to make it clear, I just created this account to make this comment. I probably won't comment on another thread. But this is getting ridiculous. I also want to say, I haven't seen the show yet. I plan to see it this weekend. Mat's mathematical formula cracks me up though. So here goes. There are 3 different posters (not 5) that created accounts "and" posted before mat "and" didn't post again after mat "and" they have an issue with the review. Let's go on the low end and say that they've had 60 people per show (about 1/4 house since Footlight holds 200+) and they've had 5 shows. That's 290 people that have see the show. At the time of this post, this is the most viewed article on citypaper.com. So let's say 500 people viewed this article. That would mean that about 1% of the people that saw the show and about 0.6% of the people that viewed this article fall under mat's criteria for a "conspiracy agenda". I don't think that there is anything astonishing about that. If anything I would expect someone with a "hidden agenda" to get more people to post. The reviewer as well as the posters are just giving their opinions. Everyone has the right to do that. Do you always agree with your friends opinions? Probably not, so why take issue with a total stranger's opinion. Trust me, the review in the Citypaper is not going to change mine, nor are any of the posts. I'm going to see the show this weekend because it sounds fun and because I've seen some of the actors before and loved them and because I enjoy going to the theatre. If, when I see the show, I disagree with the reviewer, I'll probably post it because I want others to have a broader range of opinions, not because of some agenda.
