Friday Night Funtime

I swear, I'm not going to make a blog entry every time I see a new episode of Doctor Who, but, um, I just saw tonight's ("Father's Day") and, um . . . wow. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just say that it's the first time a television show has made me cry in I don't even know how long.

(Which, really, says more about the amount of television I watch--which is next to nil--then it does about the effectiveness of the show itself. 'Cos I'm moved to tears the moment things get the slightest bit mushy. Ask anybody who knows me.)

I was under the mistaken impression that Sci Fi was still doing the Friday night lineup such that there was a Who rerun at 8:00 and new Who at 9:00. So I spent the first five minutes or so of Stargate SG-1 waiting for the TARDIS to show up. Which was a bit like being handed cold Dunkin Donuts when you were expecting a fresh, hot Krispy Kreme.

Today I took pleasure in watching an episode of Doctor Who I hadn't seen before.

Today I learned that SUV dealers like to advertise on the Neal Boortz radio show. (Which doesn't really surprise me.)

Father's Day is such a good episode. It plays to so many strengths of the show and explores some of the questions that Whovians have had for a long time.

Holy toledo!
I think I saw that episode, too.

I admit it, I got soggy. *snurfl*

Tom Baker's still my fave Dr, but nothing's wrong with The New Guy.

...I'm typically NOT the type to get mushy.


* someone makes a noble sacrifice
* someone is kind to a lonely old person
* a child shows unlikely degrees of sensitivity and kindness to another ostracized child
* an animal dies...though, admittedly, it's usually a cute and fuzzy mammal-type critter. I didn't cry when I squirted carcinogenic death-poisons at the 3 inch long black wasp thing that attacked me in my bathroom last night
* There's a Jiffy Lube commercial that depresses me, because this snotty Britney-wannabe-teen is dismissive of and rude to her father, who is only trying to keep her damn car from blowing up by teaching Snippy Snotface to put oil in her damn car. Wah. I miss my dad.
* it's an AT&T commercial about calling Grandpa on his birthday
* The kitchen faucet looks all forlorn and neglected because the family has bought a new, spiffy dishwasher
* Spongebob forgets about paying attention to or feeding Gary, who runs away
* somewhere, a hat drops

Other than that, I'm not mushy at all. Really.
