NEXT IT WILL BE SHERLOCK HOLMES BECOMES A HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES

A break in the TV08 series.

It seems that the zeitgeist of 2009 is centered werewolves and Sherlock Holmes.

On the Sherlock Holmes front, I'm doubly pleased. I don't mention it much, but I'm a fan of Holmes. That probably one of the reasons I like House so much. Anyone catch the Irene Adler namecheck in the recent X-mas episode.

First off, there's the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes flick with Robert Downey Jr. This has as much potential for utter disaster as it has for total awesome sauce. I'm excited to see in hopes of the latter. I've got the script for it, but haven't yet read it. Perhaps over the holiday break. There's also the Sacha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell version. I fear that one.

Now, there's a modernized one-hour BBC version by...Steven Moffat. He of the best Doctor Who eps and Jekyll. I automatically assume this one will rockest my world. Not a series though. I suspect one hour will NOT be enough for me.

As for werewolves, there's the next Twilight flick, the Benicio del Toro remake of The Wolfman and now a Fox pilot called Bitches. It sounds like Sex & The City...except they're werewolves. That time of the month? Shades of Ginger Snaps.
