Amazingly, I understood what happened in the final episode of Miracle Day.

Also, I didn't hate it.

I hate the Torchwood team. That hasn't changed. What a bunch of losers! I can't imagine any world where these people would be in charge of any successful operations to save us all. So, I'm not surprised that they didn't come close to stopping the "Families." And I am not happy we have to keep the God Awful Rex around. Why couldn't he just die heroically saving Esther? And well, I am sorry to see Esther go, as she was the only one of the new characters I liked. Couldn't they shoot Gwen, instead? Please.

But, okay, all of that said, it wasn't as bad as Children of Earth for me. Looking at why others hated it, I found there seemed to be some confusion about how the whole transfer of immortal life happened and I speak enough RTD to explain that one...so...here goes:Read more... )

Well, I suppose some of you are wondering what in the world am I doing watching Miracle Day at this late date. I will tell you that when the show originally aired in the US, I was very ticked off at Russell T. Davies and, some of you might remember this, I was sure the show would be absolute rubbish. This prediction was born out for me by my FList and so, I didn't even bother. However, having started a new Fic, I am back in the RTD era and thought...what the hell? How bad can it be?

Here I must freely admit...I am not a fan of the Outlander series. I tried but the whole time travel premise left me cold. Odd, I know considering how much I enjoy time traveling television and films. I mean, I loved Somewhere in Time in its day...and Time and Again...and Quantum Leap and Voyager and, you know, that show with the weirdly dressed fellow blipping about in a 1960's Police Box.

Eleventh Doctor in Costume...Spoiler Link...ARTICLE CONTAINS FURTHER SPOILERS THAN PICTURE...http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/tv/2545761/Suits-Who-Sir.html

But the time traveling romances...nah!

Still, I thought I might give Galbadon another try with something shorter...so I picked up this little volume. Read more... )

This article makes some valid points, in my opinion and, yet, it saddens me...because...it reads like the RTD lynching suggested by a responder to one of my previous posts. Also, I feel it clearly reflects that we have now lost some of the hard won respect New Who has built over the last four years. Rubber monsters, indeed! Under the cut we go...Read more... )

Okay...last time out, I mentioned those pesky plot holes. But I was over on Lisa's journal talking about how drama isn't another word for tragedy and how tragic isn't another word for "realistic" when I stumbled over what I really want to say about the Whoverse at this time...so...under the cut we go for some possible CoE spoilers...but this is mostly about the pony.

By now, the overseas crowd has reacted to Torchwood: Children of Earth and decided where they stand on it and what it means for the future of the Whoverse. I had a few things to say in my post-as-we-go reviews, on the subject of philosophy and happy endings. For more from me and RTD...let's go under a cut...

Have you people ever noticed that I simply refuse to give up my perfectly good theories even after RTD has dumped cold water all over them?

Again...I must warn against spoilers, though I have gotten an overnight of both episode 2 and 3 and so will be caught up soon to the rest of you.

Less philosophy this time...and so less rambling on from me...under the cut we go...Read more... )
