    Never seen much of the older stuff, but the new shit is tight.

    Love the "Blink" episode. those other two where Doc and Martha are in 1930 were bullshit. I think they are trying to push the whole realationship business with them a little too hard.

    With Rose, whom I wouldn't mind giving a nice hard dicking to, they at least waited a season before trying it, letting the characters develop together. Instead of just "Hey how's it goin? I'm from space! Wanna be my girl friend?"

    But yea, The Doctor is cool in my book any day :tup:

    Yeah ive been watching the new show since season 1. The fucking Sonic Screwdriver has got to be the Infinity Gauntlet of power tools because the bitch does everything. Yeah and in the Blink episode motherfucker did all types of preptime. But the most badass episode this season so far though has been "Family of Blood". Assholes found out what happens when u piss him off. Making himself human was "act of kindness". :lol:

    Doctor Who is a great show... I can still hardly believe they brought it back. Especially after the Paul McGann movie and no series happening. This new series is way better than that movie, which was trying to appeal to someone's idea of the US audience too much. It was still well received in Britain though, they just didn't make a series because it totally bombed in the US. It's a shame because I thought Paul McGann was a great Doctor... hoped they might bring him back for the new show.

    A question for the people who watch it in the US: what channel do they put it on over there? Is it popular or just a cult following kind of thing?

    Also, I'd say the classic series is worth watching. It ran for such a long time though, it has really good and downright awful patches. If you want to get into it, the stuff from the 70s is the most watchable, if you get past the dodgy sets and special effects. I love the earlier Tom Baker stuff, like "Ark In Space", "Terror of The Zygons" and "Pyramids of Mars". :tup:

    Scifi Channel shows it here but I usually watch it on tvlinks. I just finished off Torchwood Season 1 which leads right into "Utopia". Are they going to do a second season of that? It would be weird to not have Capt. Jack there. The man is nuts, took on the devil like it wasnt shit.

    ...and I would assume that Jack is coming back, but I don't read spoilers. He could die on Who tonight for all I know. Actually he probably will, but you know, I mean die and not get back up again. :razzy:

    True, so true. Another thing I found funny about Jack is he'd screw anything with a pulse.

    I've been watching dr.who since i was a kid. It has a cult following over in the states. It used to be on pbs when i was a kid along with red dwarf.

    I like the new series except i miss the first doctor of the new series reboot..he isnt as ugly as this new guy and had ok teeth. the new guys teeth are like a dentists nightmare.

    rockbogart? the old shows are worth it but its really about which doctor you like cause they can easily be hit or misses due to the doctors.

    The classics are god tier. I grew up watching that late night on PBS. Tom Baker is the best doc, with Ace is the best companion. The hottest companion is a toss-up between Peri and Ace. I wanted a K-9 soooo bad as a kid. :tup:

    The old ending sequence was a little scary. Dr. Who came on at night, and I was a little kid.

    You mean those flying colors and the creepy original music? Yeah, I'm pretty sure that if you taped someone's eyelids open and made them watch that acid trip you could brain wash them. Surprised it didn't scare me, as much of a wuss as I was as a kid.

    Mainly it was the friggin' music...that shit was eerie as hell. I listened to it a few minutes ago, and I get it now. The music goes from creepy in the beginning to inspirational and somewhat adventurous and rousing. I'd never listened to the whole sequence once the show ended when I was a kid.

    My favorite television show as a youth of 8-12 or so. Used to come on PBS saturday nites from 10-12, and I'd always watch before getting up for service the next morning. Tom baker was the best Dr. the one who followed him was kinda cool too though. The music/outro was indeed godly. Just a great show and I need to go purchase all the old episodes on DVD. I saw that movie several years ago and thought it sucked royally, maybe I should give the new show a chance.

    So I just watched Friday's episode. Damn this master guy is evil. Next episode is the series finally. I wonder if they will start another series next year or something. The next season of Torchwood will probably be about the post-Master era if they succeed.

    The maste is also a Timelord so he wouldn't die just move on to his next incarnation no?

    Yeah but they don't die they regenerate, are we assuming in current continuity that the Dr./Master are on the last of their lives?

    from my understanding...the last doctor was supposed to be the last life or sumtin...i heard they tweaked it..so i'm not sure if he's on his last life. If he is..im curious to see how they will fix it..turn the master good? lol. nah too easy.

    Well the tardis is a child of the universe essentially it'd be interesting if they could have that play a part in it.

    The current doctor is in his tenth incarnation, so given the Time Lord rules about 13 regenerations, he's got about 3 more left.

    Which brings us to the Master....

    Long story short, the Master likes to cheat. He cheated his way to a new body in the Tom Baker (4th) era, and then was supposedly sucked into the Eye of Harmony during the TV Movie (which is unfortunately canon). As the current Master explained in The Sound of the Drums, the Time Lords resurrected him, so he's fresh on his 2nd body.

    It's the first time in the new series that they've stuck their hand deep in the old series history. For the most part the writers have been teasing us about it. So far, none of the fanboys are getting immensely angry about it, which is good considering Russell T Davies' scripts aren't the most coherent.

    Can't wait for this Saturday!

    Oh any of you seen the new series eps dubbed in Japanese? Pretty funny shit.

    Anyone catch "The Colbert Report" last night?

    He was talking to the Unity '08 guy and the guy was saying how people can go online to the net conference they are doing and that's when they will decide who they want to back for a candidate.

    Then Colbert goes "Oh so this is all online? Well all you're going to get is a but of internet nerds. Everyone is gonna vote for either Doctor Who or Chewbacca!"

    So I say...Doctor for President.

    Hell if the Master can be Prime Minister, then Doc can be Prez!

    That reference meant that John Simm = sixth actor to play the Master, not sixth incarnation.

    Don't look up the movie unless you really really have to. It's *that* bad.
