Wait, what?

Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law as Dr. Watson?

This has the potential to be either seriously awesome, or completely ridiculous. Here's hoping it's the former.

(On the other hand, if I see one more person complain that Watson can't be played by Jude Law because Watson "isn't fit" I'm going to strangle something, I swear. Read the books, goddamnit, people.)

Watching season 4 of "24"...

...a few comments, in order (keeping in mind I'm exactly halfway through the season):

"Right, the plot train has just gotten derailed and is going for a merry stroll through the countryside."

"You know that plot train I mentioned earlier? It's met a few flying pigs on its way."

"Now the train's been joined by a bunch of pink and violet unicorns and is merrily frolicking in a field of roses..."

"...with the addition of a few packs of tapdancing elephants."

And of course, the omnipresent "Is there any point to this or is it just the writers being bastards to the characters again?"

I probably should just sit back, stop analyzing the plot as if I were a writer and try and enjoy the ride. :|

(And yes, I know it's a TV show and not a movie. I'm too lazy to add a new category. :P)
