I miss Torchwood.

I have no idea what the point of COE was besides ruining the show. Yeah, sure, it was pretty, and dramatic, and whatever- but seriously, admit it, it pretty much canceled the show. And I really, really wish I could understand the logic behind that. It was making tons of money, I loved it, I know a bunch of people who loved it; wtf.

And since COE I haven't wanted to watch the show, or read the books, or pick up the magazine. When I saw John Barrowman on Desperate Housewives it felt like a punch to the gut.

Sherlock Holmes Defends London from Dinosaurs!

Ok, Sarah and I watched the Sherlock Holmes movie last night and... It was pretty good actually. I mean, seriously dinosaurs! And a kracken! And power suits! It was sort of horrible and awesome at the same time, in a low budget way, thought the CG bits were more charming than in Clash of the Titans. (I mean the cityscape specifically- Every time I saw the temple on the hill all I could think was video game graphics while Parliament looked pretty in the fog and nighttime lights). I did think Gareth David-Lloyd was pretty good as Watson- sort of bumbling and determined. And that guy who played Sherlock was alternately awesome and hilarious- startlingly effete, though. And I got the distinct feeling that it was much less plot coupon-y than the Robert Downy Jr. version.

And now we are watching Nicole Kidman in The Invasion which is setting off every horrible hypochondriac feeling in my body. Space plague spores. *shudder*

Sherlock Holmes versus T-Rex versus Kracken!!!

When you're this guy...

And you're fighting this guy...

And this guy...

You might need this guy...

Nope. Not kidding.

Oh right. I forgot Rodan is in it too. I'm pretty sure this movie is going to be awesome.
