I haven’t been participating for a while… for various reasons. But I did want to share this…
I’m looking at “cutting the cable” and I was looking at channels available over the broadcast airwaves.
I saw a channel I had heard of before – RetroTV or RTV. As I was surfing, I saw a scene that I thought looked a lot like Classic Doctor Who (…[Read more]
I was working on that and then I got distracted with a silly argument about how many weeping angels could dance on the head of a pin (not really but something just as silly).
I’ll put that together soon and let everyone tell me that I’m a scoundrel because left out their favorite episode. LOL.
I’d would have liked to put them all in but I was…[Read more]
Okay, so I’d like some help.
I was thinking last night about how much we love the surprises in the plots that the writers throw at us. And how much we love the surprises in the way that the actors portray their parts.
And a thought popped into my head…
“The actor is the canvas that the plot is painted on.”
I thought, that SOUNDS deep, it’s…[Read more]
@ob-wan I don’t believe that ‘Pete’ Capaldi (has he been introduced as such?) is…
Please, Please, PLEASE…
…do not put my name anywhere near a comment like that.
I already have enough people trying to read INTO what I write instead of reading what I ACTUALLY write.
I said that he hadn’t been “well-received unive…[Read more]
I’ve already seen a couple of articles quoting a “source” or “sources” inside the BBC as saying a new Doctor is coming. (For whatever THAT’S worth.)
After all, do you think PC’s contract pays him for making one show in a year? There’s probably a clause in every TV actor’s contract about the show going off the air or suspending production. I r…[Read more]
After Gap. Thanks to you both. I never would have gotten that.
“If I wasn’t cursed with Comcast, which has a data cap on their Internet, I would drop the cable and just use Hulu.”
My limit with Comcast Blast service is pretty high. But I’m an old guy so I may not be using as it as fast as a younger person might…[Read more]
I’m tired and probably just too dense, but I can’t seem to figure out what “AG Doctor Who” stands for.
A little help, please.
I will now have to find an alternative way of catching up on the show (maybe Hulu or Amazon Prime).
I have Amazon and I really don’t like it. I’m going to drop it before my renewal date. I don’t like the s…[Read more]
If we’re going to go much further we should probably move this to the Sofa. I’ll try to put it into perspective and then if you have any other questions – please put them there.
In the US, any lawyer can be a trial lawyer, but many don’t have what it takes, so they join a firm or refer their clients to others for a referral fee. Most s…[Read more]
My first thought was maybe the BBC thinks that BBC America is losing $$$ because of the other outlets.
Perhaps they want to expand the Doctor Who offerings. I had seen that they were playing Classic episodes on Saturday mornings (Tom Baker, or course) a short time ago but I checked their schedule and don’t see them anymore.
According to CinemaBlend –
Sadly for us and any who might have come after, Netflix will be pulling Doctor Who from its streaming service on February 1, 2016…
Official confirmation that both series collections of Doctor Who will be soon gone from Netflix is disappointing, considering that there have been false alarms in the past about…[Read more]
No, of course not, Mersey.
It just seems that some of my opinions don’t match with the orthodoxy of other forum members.
And to be fair some of them seem to take that very personally while I’ve just been trying to defend my conclusions.
One of the big brouhahas was because I mentioned what I thought was “a minor technical point”.
I did mention lawyers. I used to work with lawyers. In this case I mean “lawyers”, as in American lawyers/attorneys – not Barristers/Solicitors.
In America there is an expression among lawyers that I mentioned…
“Are you going to believe me or your own lying eyes.”
It refers to trying to trying to trick an eyewitness into getting c…[Read more]
Kharis changed their profile picture
LOVED the blonde Romana. Hot in a very cool kind of way – The Doctor’s Mrs. Peel (without the cat suit *Darn*).
I keep hoping that they’ll figure out a way to bring her back. Not Lalla Ward, obviously, but I would like to see the character make a comeback considering that she played such a big pa…[Read more]
No, the point is that the use of the word is correct — both mine, and Moffat’s and RTDs. And yes, it is a rationalisation because reason was used…
You are using the word “rationalization” incorrectly…
Attempt to explain or justify (one’s own or another’s behavior or attitude) with logical, plausible reasons, even if these are not…
OB-Wan: And it will never be correct no matter how much you may rationalize it to yourself. The definition of words aren’t going to change to suit your musings.
jimthefish: Not my musings, no, but with the musings of enough people… So, no, afraid you’re wrong there.
Oh, Jim, try to keep things stra…[Read more]
All the best to your mum. Hopes for a speedy recovery.
Happy Australia Day! Kinda funny. It seems a lot like our 4th of July except you celebrate when the British planted their flag and we celebrate when they took their flag and left.
Have fun and know that were we to vote here – you would be the Australian of the Ye…[Read more]
