Doctor Who season 7 was a lackluster season. Moffat’s biggest problem as Who’s show runner is that he doesn’t give himself enough time to develop a story fully and individual episodes often have a rushed and unsatisfactory ending. This ultimately leads to basic ideas becoming unnecessarily complicated and full of plot holes. Unfortunately, season 7 is plagued with these problems. That isn’t to say that the season was bad, it’s just that season 7 didn’t live up to the quality of the past six seasons of the “New Who”…until you get to the finale.
It’s easy to mistake the Name of the Doctor as just a conclusion to season 7’s Clara story arch. The episode does offer an answer to the enigma of the Impossible Girl, but you’d be doing the episode a disfavor if you boiled it down to just that. This finale is in many ways a celebration for Moffat’s run as a whole. I won’t go into details, but I think everyone who has been following the new series will find something to love in this episode.
In conclusion, Doctor Who may be one of my favorite episodes of the show. Before today I was worried about the 50th anniversary, but now I can’t wait to see what Moffat does.
I’m a big guy. I get how big guys tend to smell worse than small people, so I (at the very least) make sure I’m wearing fresh deodorant before going to see movies. Also, I don’t smoke a carton of cigarettes before walking into the theater. This is especially problematic for big guys, because it can make us smell four times worse.
I also have sleep apnea, so I snore really bad. When going to see movies, especially midnight releases, I make sure I don’t fucking fall asleep during the movie! My snoring is loud. It’s obnoxious. No one wants to hear me snore, especially when they paid ten bucks to see a goddamn movie! If I happen to fall asleep, I remove myself from the theater the first time I wake up again! If you are seeing a movie with a snorer, wake them the fuck up so people like myself don’t have to drop soda bottles on the floor to scare the asshole awake!
Just some things to think about the next time you go to the theater.
By now you’d think that I would’ve quit doubting JJ but you’d be wrong. Maybe it was from going out of my way to avoid spoilers, but I really didn’t know what I’d think of this movie. Regardless, it was a great film. At times it was a little bit predictable, and if you have any knowledge of Sci-Fi culture you’ll be able to see the various “twists” coming. However, the entire cast was incredible and the plot was well thought out.
I can’t wait to see with Abrams does with Star Wars
I hadn’t seen Brave yet, just because I was underwhelmed by what I had heard about it. I was browsing Starz yesterday and it was on there. I decide to watch it tonight and thought it was fantastic. Maybe it’s because I had lower expectations, or maybe it is actually as good as I thought it was; either way, it’s worth a watch!
Hah they had sex in their costumes
