Doctor Who: The Stolen Earth

*clears throat*

OH. MY. GOD.

*FLAILS*

I mean seriously, I admit I've got deep, abiding childhood conditioning working for me here, but I spent the whole thing hiding behind a stack of pillows because

DALEKS, I KNOW IT'S ALWAYS DALEKS, EVERYBODY KNOWS IT'S ALWAYS DALEKS, ultimately, and that should get old but it DOESN'T because IT WAS DALEKS, and it was THAT ONE, OMGWTF.

And OH MY GOD, Sarah Jane and Luke and Martha and JACK AND GWEN AND IANTO AND ROSE ROSE ROSE AND HOW COOL WAS DONNA, AND THE SHADOW PROCLAMATION AND THAT WAS THE MOST COMPLICATED CROSSOVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE AND I'M GOING TO STOP WRITING IN ALLCAPS NOW.

Okay. See, this. This right here. This is twenty-five years of conditioning, job well done, and Daleks should not be scary, but they SO TOTALLY ARE.

I fall for it every time, and that is either brainwashing or good writing, more likely the former but I guess it doesn't really matter in this context. FIX IT FIX IT.



*ahem*

Also, we are going to Playland tomorrow. It is disgustingly hot and it's supposed to be even MORE disgusting tomorrow (36 degrees, WTF), but at least at Playland there is greater-proximity-to-the-ocean and the log ride and things that go very fast. Also maelie hasn't been, yet, we are providing a public service.

Seriously, I know I complain all through Winter and out the other side, but can we have January back, please? *fans self* IT IS LIKE TORONTO IN HERE.

I was thinking the EXACT same thing. It's always Dalek's, of course it is but it never stops being scary because *they* never stop being scared. The looks on all their faces when 'exterminateexterminate' came over the frequency. And I still can't believe that they managed to pull off such a huge complicated crossover without short changing anyone. EVERYONE ROCKED!

I was telling a friend, way back when New Who started, about how Daleks shouldn't be scary, but they absolutely are, and she didn't believe me.

She believes me now. Because they're scary.

My love for crossovers, it is boundless. ^.^

Are you serious?! 36?!?!? UGH. I woke up like 15 minutes ago and was like OMMFG I'M DYING because it was still hot. I thought it'd be cooler in the morning. NOPE. *woobies*

Have fun at Playland. I hope you don't melt. Stay on the log ride and get soaking wet. :D

I think we're going to die, I really do. It's about 40 degrees in our apartment and I got sunburn yesterday even though I was absolutely wearing sunscreen.

We are all doomed. O.O

I love the BBC and their ability to hold true to old Who-style and stage large crossovers, multiple doctor episodes (even if it was just that one little teaser bit) unearth old enemies and multiple-part episodes (even if they are only two or sometimes three now instead of four to six)
You know. In short, not dumbing Dr Who down for new audiences. <3 you BBC.

I want to see the next episode like now. I mean it. Like right now. I've been saying that since I saw it ><
