What?! See, this is why American remakes suck. They try to be ~ground-breaking~ or whatever. That, and they're American remakes. :D Oh, and Moffat&Gatiss are long-time ACD fans, so they know all the intricacies of what they want, not to mention being faithful out of love for Sherlock Holmes. Have these guys even read some ACD? Granted, I haven't read any ACD either. /hypocrite But they're on my 'to get' list. And maybe the Brett-version. I haven't been a Sherlock fan for long, I'm sorry!

Capping Donnie Darko right now, because I can. XD I'm also in the mood for FMA icons, considering I've been neglecting FMA lately...

I also feel like playing more Skyrim, or AC: R... eventually.

Why do a remake in the first place? Odd...

...it's not a remake, though XD. It's yet another modern day version of Sherlock Holmes. It's been done before with Basil Rathbone, who Moffat and Gatiss frequently reference on Sherlock.

IMO, it's a crappy not-remake of the BBC version. *shrug*

Why is it crappy? You haven't seen it yet XD

I know I'm being unfair, etc etc. XD I'll consider it crappy until it actually comes out. And then I might look at it for a few minutes to see if I can either get laughs out of it, or if it's actually good.

Expecting the worst is usually the best way to go! :D /weird

I'm quick to judge about American remakes. XD Especially with the crappy remakes they've made of Asian horror... :/ I'm so glad they've moved on from those, though... *hugs Asian horror* ♥

Maybe it's some inferiority complex thing? Besides the whole "cashing in on the latest craze" thing, there could also be "hey! We can make stuff as good as that! *remakes* See?! See!?!!? :D"

There was an American TV show of Merlin, called Camelot, but it got cancelled.
