The End of Eleven [Doctor Who]

It took me awhile to get use to Matt Smith as The Doctor. At first I was really put off by the largeness of his facial features until I eventually found them adorable and endearing. Then I was constantly trying to look around River Song’s scene stealing and fangirling to  figure out what he was up to. Finally, I settled in on Eleven being charming and fun and authoritative and just an enjoyable character. I felt like this season was finally about Eleven, not Amy, Rory, or River so it’s both good and bad for him to exit on this leg of

I get way too excited about new TV seasons…

I watch too much TV. It’s a fact I’m witting to admit but not really address.

Doctor Who came back this fall and it almost killed me. I felt like they were doing some awesome stand out episodes and phoning a few in to rest on the laurels of the supporting characters. And honestly I don’t get the River-Doctor relationship. I missed the place where they fell in love or why. Maybe because everyone falls in love with The Doctor? Maybe because River told him he’d marry her and so he did… I dunno. I keep watching.

I’m geeked about this new companion. Oswin Oswald was amazing to me and I can’t wait for her energy.

Also back: Alphas, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Vampire Diaries!

SHIIIIT! Elana is going to wake up mid-transition! She’s going to have her memories of meeting Damon first! AHHHH!

And now there are new TV shows to get excited about:

Days of Our Lives, I respect myself too much to continue our relationship.

I was a Days of Our Lives fangirl. I loved it, looked forward to it, and socialized with people specifically on the topic. Days made me happy. I called it a guilty pleasure but never actually felt guilty about loving it. Not anymore.

Recently I stopped feeling entertained and started to feel insulted. Yes, by a TV show, I felt insulted.

I felt like I was squirming in an uncomfortable chair in a car dealership while NBC up-sold the value of Good Cop over Bag Guy. No matter how unconvincing the arguments, the sellers spoke loudly and ignored all my pleas for reason and canon.

Face Off "Dishonorable Proportions" Spotlight Challenge

Face Off features Dishonored in a Spotlight Challenge

The SyFy channel decided that rather than make a gradual change they should Tokyo Drift and completely become a heavily reality TV driven channel nearly overnight. I don’t approve. That doesn’t stop me from watching their original reality-competition show Face Off in fits and starts.

I just get sucked in. It’s art and imagination and everyone is essentially given the same challenge to make their own. Face Off is more cognitive than America’s Next Top Model – Don’t tell Tyra I said that—and far less annoying than any of their ghost or paranormal shows (but what isn’t?).

Face Off is one of the few shows down this new road that seems to remember what the SyFy channel that came before and won us over was all about.

In the episode “Dishonorable Proportions” the contestants were charged with translating some of the enemies and classes, some affected by the plague and others disturbing by default, from Dishonored in to real life characters.

SQUEE!

Days of our Lives: DAYSaster – Day 2

It’s day 2 of the Days of our Lives DAYSaster and shit is getting thick. Sami isn’t hanging from a ledge anymore but she’s ready to run– WITH EJ! Half the town’s citizens and all the town’s youths (sans the gay-strong Will Horton) are in a labyrinth of gas-filled, shoddily built tunnels from the prohibition era. Kate is a silent storm ready to rage on a pitiful Ian who’s pledging his love to a dying Madison. Nicole is about to lose another baby as she goes into premature labor under some debris. The Deveraux family flounders between take-charge and so useless they’re flailing helplessly into injurious.
