Why is it that I can't find anything? Doctor Who Series One Disc 3 has gone missing. It isn't with the other DVDs, it isn't in a DVD player or computer. Where is my stuff disappearing to?


This better not be another repeat of Veronica Mars Season Two Disc 5, which went missing in September (in the house)and still hasn't been seen.

I was thinking specifically about the "Stowaway". I think there were some who had certain expectations about how the song would be used in the episode based on the lyrics and were disappointed. The thing is, I never really thought it would have much importance in the episode itself so I don't really think of it as a missed opportunity.

I think that the songs are meant to express the Doctor's mindset over the course of the following season. The message is to the audience rather than the Doctor. I think that both "Song for Ten" and "Love Don't Roam" do a very good job of this in the context of their respective episodes. "The Stowaway" doesn't do the job as well but I think it was still written with that intended purpose.

Even though I know that lemmings really don't commit mass suicide, the cultural inertia of the idea lives on.

From Pretty much everyone on my friends list.

a. Post a list of 10 TV shows you love (current or canceled);
b. Have your friends list guess your favorite character from each show;
c. When guessed bold the line and write a little bit about why you like that character;
d. Post in your own livejournal.

Doctor Who So why do I love the Doctor? He's all about curiosity and the love of knowledge for it's own sake. He's also arrogant and a bit full of himself at times (seems to span regenerations, actually). I just love the whole idea of the character.

Veronica Mars *points to icon* Keith Mars does indeed win at life. Okay, his life kind of sucked if you thought about it too hard but he made the best of it. And despite being short and bald he was all kinds of badass. Also, he loved his daughter and knew when to be "morally grey".

Spaced. Tim is just all sorts of awesome. I loved that he was a struggling comic book artist and that the Phantom Menace still pained him. He was funny and kind of dorky cute even with the platinum hair.

Babylon 5
Pushing Daisies
The Pretender

Lois and Clark Clark. He was sweet, smart, hardworking and respectful and loving towards his parents. He was also absolutely gorgeous. Loved him.

Ugly Betty


Firefly Simon. I love Simon because he is formal and socially awkward. I share these characteristics and it just made me glom onto him. He's also very pretty and he's determined and basically good.

So, am I the last listening to DW audios to realise that Rassilon is voiced by the same man who played the President of Pete's World Britain in "Rise of the Cybermen"? Because I feel like I am.

That's the first thing I noticed about this picture. I have no idea what that says about me but it amuses me almost as much as the expression. And the Sontarans are just about the funniest thing ever.

I've watched the Shakespeare Code twice now and I've noticed something that makes me feel a little strange. I see everyone raving about Martha and I keep just thinking "Um, really?" Because I honestly like her less than I did in "Smith and Jones". I started out liking her (not loving her mind you)despite having some problems with the actress's perfomance and only an episode later I'm vastly annoyed by her. I think the root of my problem lies in Freema. I have a hard time believing her and it's affecting the way I feel about the character. Honestly, I like the idea of Martha more than what I see on screen.

I really liked Rose and I absolutely adore Billie Piper so I'm kind of disappointed that I don't like Freema as much (or at all if these first two episodes are any indication of the rest of the series). Some of this might shipper-blinders, though I doubt it as I don't actually believe in OTPs (My perception is that the Doctor and Rose loved each other and that it was true love, but I also have the belief that all loves are true). I want to like Martha but it's being made difficult.

Well, next week will hopefully be better

The new series of Doctor Who starts this weekend and it seems there are more and more spoilers around. I feel like I have to stop using the internet to avoid them (which since I spend about 12 hours or more a day online tells you how much of a chore that would be). I don't want to know anything until I actually sit down and watch it. I don't think it's too much trouble to warn people before you post spoilers. Most people seem able to, why not the rest?

Because, honestly I had to use that as the title for this post. I've been thinking about the new series of Doctor Who, specifically Martha Jones. Nothing in depth but just that she seems custom made for me to hate her. First of all, her name is Martha which happens to be one of my least favourite names. It really grates on my ears (I usually just call her "New Girl"). Also she looks a great deal like one of my cousins who I didn't particularly like and thus I have a desire to punch her in the face. This does not bode well for my enjoyment of the series. However, I am trying to work past these issues.

Freema happens to have one of those faces that I know intellectually is pretty, but does nothing for me at all (probably because of the cousin thing). I like finding people attractive, it helps me enjoy things more. Also, I see a lot of people saying that she's going to be spectacular and they haven't even seen the eps yet.

I doubt my opinions will be shared by a lot of people. I generally tend to be the sort who has unpopular opinions (Whovian examples: Dalek is my least favourite episode of the entire run, I love Boomtown and Love and Monsters I preferred the second series to the first and I don't think that Rose was clingy during the second series).

In the episode they say it's February 1st of the current year without giving the actual year. But then later Jackie says that her official biography says that she was born on the same day as Cuba Gooding, Jr (who incidently seems to have been born a month later in the AU, likely someone saw the date 01/02/68 and read it as February 1 rather than January 2-shoddy but understandable). Now since she's pretending to be 39 and born the same day as CBJ that makes the year 2007.

Should have just said it outright, but they don't seem to want to be to specific with the dates.

Now that I've calmed down, I'll have to say that I did have few problems with this episode. The main one being scenery chewing. Can the BBC really afford to replace it all? Still when the episode ended I felt like I wanted to know more. I can't wait to see what happens.

Why can't it be next week already?


I loved that. This may be another example of my being hard to displease though.

You know, I've finally realized two things about Avatar: The Last Airbender. I love the show but:

1) I hate most of the voice actors (Well, I like Sokka, Aang and Uncle Iro, but that's it)

2) I don't like Zuko (this was cemented when I finally saw the ep where he and Uncle parted ways. Because Uncle is completely awesome). Maybe this will improve as time goes on.

Also, it seems that Doctor Who is taking forever to download. I know that it isn't really, but I want to see Rise of the Cybermen now, dammit!

Doctor Who Fans: Please stop the wank. It's not worth it. "The Girl in the Fireplace" is not the best thing ever. It is also not the worst thing ever. It is, for the most part, a perfectly middling episode (I didn't like it, but that's not the same thing as it being bad). Now for those who loved it, those of us who didn't are not stupid, blind shippers are crazy asexualist. While some of the people who didn't like it undoubtably fit into those categories, by no means do all. I did not find the story either interesting or engaging. I did not like Sophia Myles portrayal of Madame du Pompadour. There were lines of dialog that, frankly, made me cringe (though, to be fair, that's happened in just about every DW ep I've watched). I did not like the "logic" behind the clockwork machine's stalking of Reinette and I really didn't like the scene where she entered his mind (that sort of thing causes my MS sense to tingle). There were some interesting ideas, but basically, I didn't like the execution. And I felt that came to soon after "School Reunion" which covered the same sort of ground from a different angle.

Basically, I'm saying that because I didn't like it, does not make me somehow inferior or stupid. I. Just. Didn't. Like. It.

Nor should those who dislike it, insult those who did like it. Everyone is entitled to their personal opinion and it's perfectly fine for people to say that they loved the episode. What's not fine is either side attacking the other. This sort of thing is why I tend to give up on fandomy things after the first rush fades. I don't understand the need for wank and I think it's silly. I think I'll take a fandom break until the middle of the week, where the squee for "Rise of the Cybermen" will outway the wank from this episode. I half think that none of this makes any sense but I don't really care right now.

Hum, after realizing my dislike of TGITF, I've decided to go spoil myself on "Rise of the Cybermen" to make myself feel better. Normally, I hate spoilers, but I think this is a special case. "The Girl In the Fireplace" was the first episode of Doctor Who that I disliked (As I said in an earlier post, I'm hard to displease). Well, at least I'm actually interested in RotC in the first place.

Oh and another thing I forgot to mention about TGITF, I didn't like Sophia Myles all that much (admitedly, she creeps me out a bit) but I found her a bit wooden.

Also, watched most of "The Deadly Assasain" last night and I have to say that I mostly enjoyed it though I stopped with about twenty minutes left. I figured that when I started to find Tom Baker attractive, it was time to stop (okay, I'm half-kidding though I actually did find him attractive).

Nothing spoilery.

While I was watching the episode, I adored it. I squeed in all the right places, I jumped, I clapped I did everything that you're supposed to while watching one of your favorite shows. And then it was over, and my brain kicked in. The more I think about the episode, the less I like it. In fact, it's about ninety minutes since I finished watching it and I can pretty much say that I hate it. I won't complain about the plot because, generally speaking, I don't give a rat's ass about plot in the first place and I generally don't notice if it sucks or not. Though I will say that I did think the plot sucked. And at the end of the day, nothing made the least bit of since and I'm glad I only viewed this episode as a place holder between "School Reunion" and "Rise of the Cybermen".

All I can say, the best things about this episode was the horse (I love horses)and David Tennant's tie.

I was reading something on a DW message board and I just had to wonder, Is there some kind of stupidity requirement at some of these sites? Because the inability to grasp simple concepts like "alternate universe" seems to a prevalent disorder. It's really starting to bug.
