First, a Short One
I’m blaming my reluctance to post on inertia. After a break of not doing much online, it’s kind of hard getting into it again.
Anyways, what did I do during break? Well, I managed to watch the 2005 season of Doctor Who. I consider this sort of an accomplishment–because these days, I have almost no inclination for watching anything except documentaries and maybe the occasional movie. I liked most of the episodes well enough. My favorite for that season was the two part arc, The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances. It was a good blend of sci-fi and horror without becoming campy or gory.
I told another grad student about Doctor Who, but she had never heard of this series before. My first reaction was disbelief–I mean, who hasn’t heard of Doctor Who? Then again, I guess I’m just assuming too much. I shouldn’t be surprised. Even people out here in the backwoods are too sophisticated to waste their time messing about with stupid geeky stuff.
