    It gets good after episode 4. Stick with it.

    Yep. Pretty much how I felt about it.

    But XO is right that it continues to get better starting with episode 4. I'm maybe through 7 or 8 episodes now. Hopefully it stays good.

    And yea, I think they should've stuck with 21-22 minute episodes.

    Why exactly would 21 minutes be better?
    If it's good, it's good and visa versa - the length matters nil.

    Finished the season last night... ended up enjoying it. The last several were great. The one with Tony Wonder and the masks was great. SAME!

    Have you seen AD before?

    A lot of shows are good in small doses - especially with comedies.

    not the worst movie ever, but having read the book did help make sense - somewhat - of that mess.

    1) Stupid question.
    2) 30 mins of funny is always better than 21 minutes of funny. The only legit answer would have been either: A. I have ADD and can't handle another 9 minutes, or B. They aren't capable of fleshing out another laugh-worthy 9 minutes. And in that case you get new writers, cuz 30 minutes is better.

    Disagree on that one. If Sherlock episodes weren't a freaking hour thirty, I'd actually be able to watch the show and enjoy it a ton.

    It'd be crap if it were shorter though (IMO).
