"Don't Cross the Streams!"  
I'm really sorry to everyone who follows me as I've been going a little post-happy today. None of my patients are showing up and so I've been left browsing the Internet and being flung Captain America material.

But I had to share this image from the film of Steve's running list of things to try in the modern times.


 

For a close up of it go HERE.

Did someone recommend to Steve that he watch Sherlock?? Who was this person? Somehow seeing this did take away whatever was bubbling up in me earlier to write a oneshot where Steve and John have a conversation about war and being soldiers. Steve lives in a universe where the show Sherlock exists! Don't cross the streams!

I do, however, now want a future fic where Steve and Bucky go through this list together.

considering that almost every country got a different list with things more relevant to the specific audience, you could just go with a version of the list that doesn't have Sherlock on it.

I think there was a voting competition to choose shows? I seem to remember Sherlockology linking to a vote about the British shows Steve should be watching, or something. Here it is. I guess Sherlock beat out Who in the end. Steve would have more fun with Who. I don't think he would approve of Sherlock.

Not that I don't love British TV, but why on earth did they have a competition of British shows to recommend to Captain America? And I don't think I've ever heard of Mrs Brown's Boys or The Only Way is Essex! I've looked them up, and the latter is a reality show that has done 11 seasons; the former is a sitcom that has done 3.

I guess it was so that Brits would vote and get excited about the movie and then go see it when it came out?

My impression from a comment above mine is that there were several versions done for each country, and that was the British one. I guess there's a different one for America. You can see them all here.

ETA: A few more here.

Because audiences are stupid and don't understand that a film set in America might have American references?

My Mum loves Mrs Brown's Boys. We watch it on BBC Canada, and she laughs her ass off. It breaks the fourth wall constantly, I have a bit of a love of that. I've never seen TOWIE, though. Just heard about it.

That's kinda cool! It also explains how I managed not to see Sherlock on the list in the theater: our version said "I Love Lucy."

I haven't seen the film yet (I don't do movie theatres well with my headaches), but apparently Canada has the same one as the States. I'm trying to think what Steve might want to know about Canada. I'd say:

due South
The FLQ Crisis
The 1972 Summit Series
poutine (food)
Pierre Trudeau

I'll go for at least half of those!

Huh. It's an interesting idea but if I was say watching it in Korea, I'd be curious why anyone would recommend a Korean soap to Captain America of all people.

But anyway. I guess watching Sherlock would be less time consuming than Doctor Who. Although if Steve were to watch DW, I feel like he'd be in tears by the time we got to the plot arc involving the Master during the Tennant years.

I know in some countries the 'Captain America' was taken out of the title, because they thought people wouldn't go, so maybe we're supposed to suspend our disbelief and think of him as Captain Wherever? Or it's just an Easter Egg, more than a plot point.

At least, technically speaking, Sherlock may not exist in American Steve's world. So you can still fic, if you want.

After all, James Bond being referenced in Sherlock hasn't stopped us from crossovers.

Dammit, I was really hoping for a good reason not to do another crossover but...gaaahhh...why are plot bunnies so numerous but Word Fairies so scarce?

Because everything seems like a good idea until you start?

k is obviously for hurricane: morganakatarzi on May 7th, 2014 03:10 am (UTC)
if Stompin Tom Connors and Honest Ed aren't on our fictional Canadian list I will be sad I tell you, SAD

but alas this is Chris Evans as Captain America, not Nathan Fillion as Lieutenant Canada
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on May 7th, 2014 03:16 am (UTC)
I'm rubbish with Canadian music, I couldn't think of anyone iconic enough, but Stompin' Tom will do nicely.

I was wondering the other day--were any of the Howling Commandos Canucks? Or were we not in that part of the European Theatre at the time?
k is obviously for hurricanekatarzi on May 7th, 2014 03:25 am (UTC)
Hmmm military history isn't my forte but I know we were heavily involved in training pilots for the RAF and RCAF. Dieppe and Juno Beach are big WWII victories for Canadian soldiers; also apparently we were in Italy & Sicily. But yeah re: Howling Commandos - the timeline on the first movie appears to be 1942-1945, I think? And Dieppe was 1942, and Canadians first landed in Italy in 1943. But I don't think we had heavy involvement in northern Europe until D-Day/Juno Beach. That being said there's technically nothing stopping a Canadian from having joined up earlier under the British army - a common enough practice. And I am all about needlessly stretching timelines to shoehorn Someone Probably Played by Yannick Bisson in there.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on May 7th, 2014 03:31 am (UTC)
You! *points* I like the way you think. Yannick Bisson would be perfect.

I'm just really sick of American and British WW I and II movies that completely fail to remember we were totally there, too. Americans basically act like the war didn't start until they walked into the room, and the British act like they were all on their own for the whole thing. I remember watching something about D-Day once, and there was literally no mention of Juno Beach at all. All about the Americans and all about the British, but no mention of the fourteen thousand Canadians who were there, too.
