Have I ever mentioned that I am a fan of the BBC show Sherlock? Yes, I have. Because I am. And that fandom carries over into Series 4 of the program, which I just finished watching.

15:01 – 30:00 When we last saw our stalwart Jedi Knights, Obi-Wan Kenobi, in his Jesus Christ disguise, was hanging from the drone that tried to assassinate Senator Amidala with poison millipedes. He was zipping through air traffic high above Coruscant while Anakin Skywalker boosted a yellow skycar to chase after him. In the quick […]Read more "Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Two: Toxic Darts and Emo Ani"
