I really never watch Law & Order unless it's on as background noise or Crossing Jordan is a rerun. So it's a little weird to see Richard Brooks in a suit and tie, talking like a lawyer and destroying villains with carefully-structured court arguments. I keep expecting him to start spouting creepy poetry or snap and kill his entire law firm, and then holster his gun and gaze thoughtfully at the ceiling whilst pondering the aesthetic value of dark wood furniture against marble and the irony of Lady Justice's blindfold.
And the fact that I am paying this much attention to the television means that I am stalling. Back to work, brain! Essay. *firm voice*
And suddenly I'm feeling a great need for a Firefly icon. Of some kind. *ponders*
