The first thing that got me started thinking seriously about this project was my memory of the original Green Hornet series that was on tv back when I was a kid.
The most recurring storyline in that very short-lived series was as follows: The Green Hornet finds the bad guys, the bad guys capture the Green Hornet or incapacitate him in some way, and then Kato (Bruce Lee) comes in and always saved his life or got him out of a jam using his awesome martial arts skills. ALWAYS! It made you start to wonder as to why the Hell Kato didn't just ditch the dead weight and have his own show. I thought the parallel between the original Green Hornet-Kato : Romney-Ryan (Cato) was just too stark to go unappreciated.
