    Could be that the doc was wrong and she was in fact human but shrunk somehow and put in to that white Dalek, remember that episode with a spaceship worth of people in that robot doctor?

    I wish they could just bring David Tennant back. It took me awhile to warm up to him, but he became really good. Matt Smith was likeable right away, but he doesn't seem to have any range, he's just in the same 'mode' all the time, no dynamics or emotion, a bit boring now I think.

    Eccleston was there only for a one season sadly, I quite liked his eccentricities, his happy and serious moods. The eleventh doesn't have much of that.

    Smith > Ecclestone > Tennant for me. Smith I think has best captured the spirit of The Doctor pre-cancellation. That's not a sleight against Ecclestone though who I really felt made it his own and his differences were understandable. As for Tennant, I think he's a fantastic actor, but the writing for him was dire and it suffered as a result.

    Also, Breaking Bad anyone? I don't feel I need to say anything regarding the latest episode. It was as it was.

    I like Smith the best of the most recent three I think. JG's right though, the writing was probably, on the whole, worse for Tennant. Of course there were classics but there was some awful dross in there too. Ecclestone tends to get forgotten but I really liked him and it amuses me to think how much the Ninth Doctor would think his two subsequent incarnations are floppy-haired twits.

    I really like Smith though, he's good at everything he needs to be good at for the role and I think feels more alien than the previous two. Obviously it's personal taste but it seems really harsh to me to say Smith is one-note.

    Just watched Breaking Bad. That last dinner scene had as much tension as the fly episode, I kept thinking that something horrible was going to happen to them all at that point. But that ending, hoo boy.

    Yeah I was like ...too close to pool. But indeed 8 months of withdrawal now...

    Also I thought that episode was pretty brilliant in terms of cinematography and editing. The Prison stuff was as dark as hell and the lock up scene was just surreal.

    How did Walter got in contact with those guys by the way? Did I miss something?

    Oh and here's some nice contrast between the first two and the last season.



    It was like a comedy back then, now it's just black as death. :(

    Oooh yeah now that you mention it, he did say that but thought nothing of it as he was trying to save his own ass.

    Hey, all, I'm feeling the urge to dive into a new sci-fi series. I'm up to date on Eureka and Fringe and now considering Warehouse 13, Haven, Alphas, or Once Upon a Time.

    Recommendations?

    W13 is fun. a bit weak on plot and there is quite few illogical plot holes but characters are FUN. do recommend it.

    Recently I am watching a show by National Geographic, Doomsday Preppers. I noticed this show while staying in a Malaysian hotel in my last week's traveling trip, that this show will be renewed for its second season on coming 17 Sept, so I looked for its first season. Very funny show, it interviewed some US households who believed that doomsday is coming, for a variety of catastrophes like EMP, earthquakes, or hyperinflation (which as you can imagine, mobs who just lost their savings very likely would rob their neighbors for food and other surviving stuff). Seriously while most households often trained themselves to be extremely well armed, one such old couple was so touching. Opposite to what the other "Preppers" are doing, they in stead worked their best to store enough for their neighbors, and not only that they also educate the others to prepare their own livelihoods after the anticipated doomsday. They believe in a friendly community that would eventually pay off by pacifying.

    Parade's End.

    Not really my normal viewing (I tend to refer to BBC period dramas as "a cost effective way to reuse all the costumes") but I'm really enjoying it. I imagine its not aimed particularly at me (male, mid-twenties) but after my sister highly recommended it, and I gave it half an hour, I got sucked in.

    Feels like a fairly intelligent show where the things not being said are more important than what is, and there are some intriguing characters and the theme of Edwardian values giving way to more "modern times" in the face of WW1 is deftly handled. Bloody good. Haven't been this absorbed in a TV show in a while.

    Shit. How many man points did I just lose?

    Anyone seen the latest Doctor Who episode? It was pretty much Balon Greyjoy paying the iron price for dinosaurs.

    I recently started watching the Strike Back series on Skinemax. Though all the characters often do some insanely stupid things, I enjoy it. Stupid things ike terrorists leaving known special forces operatives alive after being captured as they make "good hostages" even though their plan is to blow up the building and everyone in it, conveniently allowing said operatives to thwart their plans from the inside and save the day. Still, it has explosions, plenty of manshoots and sex sex sex: just what a growing boy needs.

    I thought the first series of Strike Back was enjoyable hogwash but gave up on the second series about three episodes in. haven't bothered with this one.

    Yesterday's Doctor Who was a pleasant surprise. I was certain that an episode called "Dinosaurs On A Spaceship" was going to be a one-note joke and a bit of a shitfest episode but in spite of the Amy/hunter chap/Nefertiti scenes being a bit shit it was largely entertaining.

    It was Walder Frey (and Argus Filch), no?

    I've been watching Community. The second season hit a bit of a slump (and had me wondering why the show receives so much praise) but Season 3 is paying off in spades with Michael K. Williams and "Remedial Chaos Theory".
