Neil Gaiman’s Introduction To Doctor Who

There’s a big blue box.  It’s bigger on the inside than the outside. It can go anywhere in space and time, sometimes where it is supposed to go.  Something will go wrong, and there’s some bloke called The Doctor who’ll make it all right because he’s awesome.  Now sit down, shut up and watch Blink.

Doctor Who – Time Crash

I don’t know if you’ve seen it or not, but there’s a new Doctor Who short (Time Crash) featuring Peter Davison and David Tennant. It is only 7 minutes long, but it is absolutely brilliant! It is an excellent bridge between the old and the new series, and is probably the only time we’re ever going to see a one of the old Doctors as The Doctor.

I still think that one of the Baker’s would be a great cameo in another role. I think that Colin Baker would be an awesome Professor Chronitis if they decided to take another pass at Shadra.

Futurama’s back! Bender’s Big Score

Bender’s Big Score is finally out after so many year’s wait. And I have to say that it was well worth the wait. BBS is so much fun on so many levels. There’s the sheer level of having new Futurama. There’s the brilliance of the story, which again plays with time and backstory but manages (mostly) to stay within canon. There’s the fun of seeing all of the old recurring characters worked into the story (including the Robot Devil, Elzar, Fat Tony, Robot Nixon, Zapp Branigan…). And then there’s the continual ribbing of Fox’s decision to cancel Futurama.

The only problem that I had with BBS is the continual inside ribbing at Fox. The bit in the first five minutes was brilliant, but the recurring gags overstayed their welcome. Otherwise, the story is brilliantly crafted and immensely enjoyable. Fry being clueless? Check. Leela being sexy? Check. Amy being ditzy? Check. The professor being cranky? Check. Al Gore? Bender being evil? Nudity? Aliends and time travel? Check to all!

All in all, this was fantabulous! And only three more months ’til the next movie. )
