Oh my Lord, I AM LOVING the new Danger Mouse episodes. We've had time-travel, the-improving-our-mental-facilities trope, the alternate universe trope and tonight, the amnesia trope.

I was so worried when I heard about the plans to recreate DM, but it's just gorgeous stuff. One of the best things about the show is how many references there are to the old series along the way that we can spot - at least I definitely can, given how much I watched the original! :D Last night's episode, Sinister Mouse, was I think a redo of the original episode The Good, The Bad and the Motionless: evil DM verses good DM and even one of the same gags was used.

And Danger Mouse and Penfold are SO married. I'm loving the increased focus on the more emotional aspect of the character relationships in the show; the original series obviously had the friendship, but this takes it to the next level. Their closeness is much more emphasized and I actually find Penfold to be a lot more loyal this time around. His character has improved enormously; he's still cheeky and cowardly, but he's also sarcastic, perceptive and quite feisty. DM, for his part, is still brave and talented and heroic, but he's also more flawed: immature and silly, to the point where he's sometimes unprofessional. It just works so nicely; wheres 80s DM was like Benedict Cumberbatch meeting the Queen, this Danger Mouse is like Benedict Cumberbatch photobombing U2.

Honestly, I cannot wait until Count Duckula shows up.

A/N: I couldn't not. Unbeta'ed, so feedback much appreciated.

‘Cor, I do wish that Doctor Watson would stop throwing stones at our pillarbox!’
‘He’s only jealous, Penfold. He’s only Sherlock Holmes’ assistant.’
