The new doctor

His début episode last night has been met with mixed reactions from my friends and the blognetosphere, though the press have been very enthusiastic. I suspect this is because the press don’t want to be on the wrong side of history. Let me explain with a description of a certain Doctor Who episode, taken straight from Wikipedia:

The newly regenerated Doctor, suffering side effects from his regeneration, crash lands the TARDIS in London. He exits to meet [ancillary characters], and collapses in front of them. They take him to [ancillary character’s house] […] and they put him to bed.

Now if you weren’t paying attention, this could have been a loose description of Capaldi’s premier episode, but it of course is not, it is Tennant’s.

Do you recall how opinion was mixed about Tennant after that episode? Viewers were vexed at how different this doctor was (he killed the Sycorax leader, in a swordfight!) but Tennant found his feet quickly and became the nation’s favourite.

I really enjoyed the premier, despite - or perhaps because of - how, in Capaldi’s words, the Doctor is “more alien than he’s been in a while.”.

somebody should write an essay comparing and contrasting tina from bob’s burgers and meg from family guy and explain why tina hit the mark for respectfully portraying the awkward teenage years and why meg is a huge fucking insensitive joke that isn’t even funny

Tina is a character, Meg is a punchline. 

wow that’s a pretty concise essay

The kids on that show are amazing.

Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.

Having lived in NYC where its legal to be topless (and yes I took advantage of that fact several times.) I was curious as to why it wasn’t nation wide.

So let’s make it nation wide!
