  1. S11.E02: The Ghost Monument

    This was wonderful, better than the first ep, IMHO. My hopes for Chibnall were that he might not achieve some of the highs of Moffat, but he would avoid the horrific lows and that would be good enough for me. This, THIS was something I never imagined him capable of. It felt like it was right out of 80s Who. This could have been Davison and his Companions (only with better writing and special effects). And, don't get me started on the theme! It's like somebody actually listened to the 80s themes! This was both magically nostalgic and yet fresh, because the story and the dynamic with the Companions doesn't feel like what's happened before in NuWho. Some of it was beautiful to look at: The interlude with the boat on the water, the suns and moons. I got teary eyed when Yaz first heard the TARDIS and remembered the line from the 50th anniversary of how that sound brought hope to everyone who heard it, even the Doctor. Wow, it's been a long time since I've gushed this hard about Doctor Who. I'm so excited for the rest of the series.
  2. S11.E01: The Woman Who Fell to Earth

    Well, the Doctor didn't pick Leela to go with him, she pushed her way onto the TARDIS over his objections, and I guess he relented. He didn't pick Adric to go with him either, he stowed away on the TARDIS and then the Doctor relented and let him come with him. The White (Black) Guardian assigned Romana to help the Doctor find the Key to Time. The Doctor rarely picked people to be companions in Classic Who. Usually, they came along by accident (Tegan wandered into the TARDIS thinking it was a real Police Box), or because of necessity (Ace was stranded on an alien planet). I might be forgetting someone, but I think Sarah Jane was the only one the Doctor actually sought out to travel with him.
  3. S02.E10: The Passenger

    Or maybe whenever a host was decommissioned and put in cold storage. Ford upload them into Robot Heaven, so Kohana was already there waiting for Akecheta.
  4. Roseanne in Pop Culture

    Good Times was a spinoff of Maude, where Florida worked as a maid. Her family wasn't introduced until she got her own show (I think, I never watched more than an episode or two of Maude). So, technically Florida was a married working mother in a sitcom before Roseanne.
  5. Is it just me, or does it seem like Karen McDougal got rolled in this settlement with the National Enquirer? I don't care what Mr. Earnest Face Lawyer says, I don't think having to pay $75000 if she sells her story is a good deal. From the expression on Rachel's face, I think she agrees with me. McDougal should have hired Michael Avenatti.
  6. Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

    (Unsubstantiated Rumor) Yesterday, when Joy Reid was signing off, she referred to her show as Morning Joy, then clapped a hand over her mouth and said, "I mean Am Joy", and then as they faded out she said something like "Man, I almost said Morning Joe". Does this mean something? Is change in the air? Are Squinty and Meeka about to ride off into the sunset? Who knows? (/End Unsubstantiated Rumor)
  7. S01.E10: Danger, Will Robinson

    That's what's got me baffled. Don and Judy were an item in the original series and, IIRC, the movie, so why's she so young here when she could have easily been in her 20s? Don't get me wrong, I think they have good chemistry and work well together. It's just the age difference puts me off a little, but I could be won over by a good story.
  8. S01.E10: Danger, Will Robinson

    Well, I binged ten episodes over two days, so I guess that means I liked it. I liked that they've resolved everything with The Resolute. Everybody not on the Jupiter 2 (and poor Evan) made it back, and I assume they'll all now go to Alpha Centauri. I like the introduction of the alien technology, which I assume they won't be quite able to control and will take them all over and will allow them to be truly lost in space. I've got a couple of issues though. This Dr. Smith is clearly a sociopath; I mean, she just oozes malevolence, and there's no humor to take the edge off as there was with classic Smith. I'm not saying they should soften her up or anything, but at some point it's not going to make any sense for them not to shove her out an airlock before she gets somebody killed. Also, what's the deal with Don and Judy? Are they not doing that? There's a 12 year age gap between the actors, and probably an even greater gap between the characters, which suggests to me that they're not going there, but they keep putting them together which is tv speak for "hey, look at these two". So, which is it? Again, I liked the show. I liked where it ended. I hope they get another season to explore some of the more out there aliens and technology that the classic series was known for.
  9. Gary, maybe you're taking this call me by your name thing a little too far?
  10. S04.E17: A Dark Knight: Mandatory Brunch Meeting

    Well, he did kill Kristin, and then Oswald killed Isabella in a fit of jealousy, so I wouldn't say that what Lee's doing is completely without danger.
  11. S04.E17: A Dark Knight: Mandatory Brunch Meeting

    Oswald may be ruled by his heart, but at least he knows it. Ed, OTOH, is ruled by other parts, and he doesn't have a clue. He lost his sanity over Kristin, got into a war with Oswald over Isabella and ended up frozen in a block of ice; I wonder what Lee's gonna do to him? At least she won't be an innocent victim in all of it, so that's a nice change. I'm not feeling Jeremiah so much yet. If he's the actual Joker, then they're going to have to find an interesting way to crazy him up, and demonstrate how that crazy is superior to Jerome. Not an easy task even though both characters are played by Cameron Monaghan. Jerome is the perfect Joker for this show. I'm not convinced he can be improved on. I remember on Hercules DECADES ago, Herc's sidekick Iolaus was killed off and replaced by another version of Iolaus from a different universe. Both characters were played by the same actor, but the fans still rejected alt-Iolaus and wanted the original back. So, it's not a given that bringing in an evil(er) twin also played by Cameron is going to work. Still, I love Gotham so much that I'm willing to give it a chance.
  12. Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

    I'm sad to say I agree. If they had anything else they would have released it on 60 minutes. This whole things sounds like basically a one night stand, and then he kept calling her and leading her on about appearing on Celebrity Apprentice, and when he finally told her it wasn't happening, that was the end of it. Joe was right to tear into Avenatti.
  13. Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

    I thought it was funny, am I going to hell?
  14. Spoilers and Spoiled Speculation

    Drew Powell posted yesterday on twitter, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened". I assumed it was because his character was getting written out, but the cast might have gotten word that there won't be a season 5.
  15. Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

    Holy shit! Stormy's lawyer just said she had been physically threatened, implying it was someone connected to Trump! Wow! And now Joe's wandered off on a Bill Clinton hating rant. Come back to the 21st century, fool! This is a HUGE story
