My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
Why I Should Write Sharkwater coming soon? Because that show sounds like it would be awesome, imaginarily speaking.
You really love the “wrong and bad and also wrong” phrase. Which is not a bad thing, as anyone who doesn’t like the phrase is wrong and bad and also wrong.
I have access to the internet and I haven’t seen any new Doctor Who. I didn’t know you could find it on the internet. (I’ve looked before, but only found clips.)
The funny thing about Parenthood is how they’re not even trying to disguise the fact that they are recycling old Gilmore Girls plotlines for Lorelai – oops, sorry, Sarah. I mean, it’s one thing to get typecast, but they’re basically just writing her like this is Gilmore Girls Season 8 and Lorelai just decided to go back to her other family on the west coast.
“Superswarm” sounds like one of those made-for-Sci-Fi Channel movies.
Mary Warner: He means through surreptitious internet channels like thepiratebay, not legitimate ones.
Robert: I think it was.
…has anyone told the Discovery Channel that?
For a long time, it was pretty much a running gag on the Internet that every single Doctor Who fan was and expert on bit-torrenting; this comes from the fact that for a long time, the series was running on a one or two season delay from the British run, and so if you wanted to keep up, you had to download illegally. Even at just a two week delay, there are still people who can’t wait for their fix.
For the record, I agree with MGK; Smith feels interestingly Troughton-esque, the new series feels a lot like a very good, very creepy fairytale (for all the sci-fi trappings of the first episode, the man-and-dog that both bark in the same voice and have the same facial expressions is FUCKING CREEPY in a way that feels like a very dark children’s story.)
Oh, and it passes the ultimate Doctor Who test: The Kidlet screamed three times, buried her face in my shoulder once, whimpered frequently, and had nightmares.
Of course, the real question is what does FLAPJACKS think of the new Who?
John Seavey: You should have her hide behind the sofa. The monsters can’t get behind the sofa.
As a big On Her Majesty’s Secret Service booster, I have to make one quibble: almost no fans of the movie claim that Lazenby was the best Bond, just that this was the best Bond movie, not necessarily the same thing.
Even a lot of people who consider Lazenby to be the film’s major weakness concede that if Connery had stuck around just for that one film, it could very well have been the best Bond ever.
Also, totally kickass title theme.
