I’m going to try something different. I’m going to write this post as I watch the episode. Granted it’s 3:14am EST, but it just became available in my Amazon Video queue (we’re working on cutting cable). I may leave it as this. I may post a more coherent blog post later. I don’t know. Anyway,… Read More Doctor Who, “The Pyramid at the End of the World”
There were two storylines in last week’s episode of Doctor Who: the present and the past. Both had their intriguing points and their faults. Spoilers after the hopefully non-spoilery photo below.
This is an interesting look at how companions, all female so far, are written in Doctor Who. As the author of the post notes at the end, this is not perfect. But it is a start and an interesting insight into the writing of the series. In April 2014, I completed a study, with several other… Read More Companions in “New” Who
If you haven’t seen “The Husbands of River Song”, don’t keep going. Go. Find it. Watch it. It is so much fun and a wonderful episode.
In April 2014, BBC America aired a four-part series titled The Real History of Science Fiction. Naturally, I was really excited. Getting to look at science fiction over time? Yes, please! As I watched it, I was loving it, but there were a few little things that were bugging me. Seeing it again has reminded… Read More The Real History of Science Fiction
I’ve talked about everything else in The Day of the Doctor, let’s talk about the Doctor and his multiple regenerations. The first time he meets another regeneration is when Eleven jumps into the time fissure and runs into Ten. That scene was brilliant! Sizing each other up was hilarious. Seeing how skinny Ten was from… Read More The Day of the Doctor: Part 2
After the events of The Night of the Doctor, I was eagerly awaiting The Day of the Doctor. I watched it four times that night: the first time it was shown, the second time with the added commentary from Tennant and Smith, the DVR-ed first time, the DVR-ed second time. I kept noticing things each… Read More The Day of the Doctor
I realized that I had jumped the gun a bit by planning to talk about season 8. I hadn’t talked about the amazing things that came out of the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. This is an amazing mini-episode that the BBC posted to YouTube as a prequel to the big show. It takes place… Read More The Night of the Doctor
Now that season one is fully finished, I am left feeling two things: inspired to get my costumes ready and amazing for Dragon*Con, and wondering where this show came from! Technically that was the end of the second half of the first season, but I can’t find anything on SyFy’s website to indicate that there… Read More Heroes season wrap-up
Anyone else here still watching Heroes of Cosplay? I am, and I’ve been surprised at how much I’m enjoying it. Let me back up here. Heroes of Cosplay debuted on SyFy last year (2013). At first there was a ton of excitement from the cosplay/costuming community. “We have a show!” Then it was aired. For… Read More Heroes of Cosplay
