@pedant …oh…coughtrumpocalypsecoughcough lol
Interesting to see the views of Jodi Whittaker’s Doctor. I seem to remember a description, in an interview about the new series; “fizzy energy”.
I think I relate to it as a fabulous well channeled version of the ADD brainstyle, with bottomless brilliance. Since we’re only six episodes in I…[Read more]
More and more I’m shouting “THIS IS THE SERIES I WANTED WHEN I WAS TWELVE!!!”
Meaning, Hero Girls, adventure, heroes who aren’t warriors but save the day, humor, exotic locales (including Sheffield), a quirky spacetimeship, random forays into living history (which I grew up to do a lot of), space the final frontier, aliens…
@troygorsline I also thought of Stitch… much of the P’Ting is a similar sort of indestructible potential weaponized creature… dangerously cute.
I thoroughly enjoy everyone’s critiques of the show (I may learn something as a writer), but have to put in my vote for I LOVE THIS DOC AND THIS SHOW SO FAR!!!
Sorry, not sorry about the stuck caps…
@miapatrick Of course this same culture that denounced the infidel muslims also rediscovered a lot of the classical literature of Europe through the work of islamic scholars and absorbed a lot of of the scientific work of the Islamic empire , often by Latinising the names of Arab scholars and absorbing them into the cannon.
Wow, cool historical…[Read more]
@bluesqueakpip …love that: “Democracy means that losing side always thinks the winning side is stupid…Democracy includes the right to make stupid decisions.”
Having voted (Pennsylvania, US), I am sitting here hoping for the Big Blue Wave to wash away the Orange Menace…
many people are quite energized, but had a long conversation w…[Read more]
Listening to Science Friday on National Public Radio, ( https://www.npr.org/podcasts/583350334/science-friday ) I encountered a nifty sciencey story about “Ever wondered why your dog’s back-and-forth shaking is so effective at getting you wet? Or how bugs, birds, and lizards can run across water—but we can’t? Or how about why cockroaches are so d…[Read more]
@juniperfish aaaaauuughhhhhhhhhhh, I finally saw Deadpool and I cannot think of what relates to AvocadoPear…
I’m actually loving this series so far, perhaps it fits my taste well, adventure with a bit of humor, and great character development. (Yaz will get her day, I’m sure.) Comparing it to some critically acclaimed dramas on the BBC that…[Read more]
I see your points about Who delving into US politics. I perhaps just enjoy the “view from across the pond” at our silliness. Nice seeing an outside viewpoint.
But sure, let’s see what else the season has to offer. I enjoy the weekly vacation in BBC land.
@bluesqueakpip Definitely comedy horror. I adore spiders so was basically going “stupid humans don’t go in there” the whole time and howling with Halloween laughter.
Lovely that the Doctor is rooting for the spiders.
And He Who Shall Not Be Named was the truly scary thing… noo no nooo noooo nope train to nopeville we’re gonna elect someone…[Read more]
I too am very angry about the attack on trans rights, because it is a nasty and deliberate attempt to break-up the power of LGBTQ+ by atomising it, and the architects of the attack know exactly what they are doing, as trans-folk have reached less critical mass support amongst the “general populace” than lesbian and gay folk (bisexuals are sti…
Dear UK friends:
Please translate “jumper” to us Americans.
I thought it was “sweater” as in John Watson’s jumpers.
The lovely @janetteb mentioned the Doctor’s T-shirt as a jumper.
I usually think of jumpers like this…
(me, back in the dark ages of the 80s, when I had knees)
photographer artist smacks head in disbelief that she did not notice this
or the shadows may have been somewhat vague, due to the proximity of the suns to each other
or they couldn’t afford the CGI
or the extra lights
I think Tatooine had the same problem…
Adventures in Time and a Pink TARDIS…
OK, I hope I’ve got the right forum page here…
As I remember, the original Who was supposed to inspire kids to enjoy history.
Here on the Chesapeake Bay, specifically on the Chester River, in Chestertown (Maryland), a couple of “time machines” decided to have a sail one day… and it turned into a party…[Read more]
Still reading through all the great commentary…. whoo!
He’s no big warrior leader; he has to cheat to even have a chance of passing his people’s test. He’s not even a great warrior who fights other warriors – more a serial killer of worried brothers, random drunks and kindly grandfathers. A murderous, cheating bully.
