Dr. Who's 50th Anniversary: The Day of the Doctor trailer is here!


Even though I haven't been watching many of the newer episodes I'm stoked. On the other hand I'm not sure how I feel about Rose returning. It seems to me that maybe they're toying with something that would be better left alone. Rose was RTD's thing and I'm not exactly thrilled with Moffat's lead. I know a lot of people would disagree with me, this guy being one of them, and that's fine, too. On the other hand, I do like Matt Smith as the doctor, but I hated Amy Pond. Can't explain it, just one of those things.

I've been thinking a lot about Doctor Who lately. I think the reason I actually like the reboot is American TV takes itself too seriously even when the special effects aren't that special (see: practically any of the prime time dramas on the core networks). Even though Who went CGI, it's still roughly as hokey as it was in the Tom Baker days. There's a purely British wink-wink-nudge-nudge that makes you laugh with it rather than at it. And I sure do love the Judoon.



Yeah. Writing this made me realize there really isn't any excuse... I should catch up on the Matt Smith episodes promptly. I'll suck it up and push my way through the Amy Pond episodes.
