Gotham: Pilot Review (Article) - 9/23/2014 11:14:38 AM

I thought it was pretty mediocre...so it'll probably have a long life on Fox.  Penguin was perfectly cast though.

Doctor Who: Time Heist Review (Article) - 9/21/2014 5:13:23 PM

 I think I totally agree with this review...seems fair.  Off topic, I was just wondering if anybody else is having an issue with this:  it seems like, this season especially, the special effects have gotten WAY better.  For most all shows this is a great thing, but with Doctor Who, I can't decide if I'm wowed by them, or if the show has lost just a little bit of it's charm...maybe both?

Sandman's Lucifer Coming to FOX? (Article) - 9/17/2014 11:28:37 PM

 fft5305, I wouldn't rule them out completely...shows on different networks do crossover every now and then...both Ally McBeal and Boston Public were on Fox, but they both had crossovers with The Practive on ABC.  Those were all David E. Kelley shows, so I would assume any crossovers with Constantine and Lucifer would depend on production teams and who is holding the rights.

 I think Clara is the key to how they were able to get to Gallifrey.  As I said before, she has been inside The Doctor's personal timeline, and part of her has already been on Gallifrey - she told The Doctor that he was about to steal the wrong T.A.R.D.I.S.  My theory is that her link with The Doctor trumps timelocks and pocket universes wherein Gallifrey may lie.

 I've heard that about Moffat's writing.  I honestly wouldn't know since I'm really a newer fan (of 9 and up).  I can certainly see where that would irk a lot of the true and long time fans.  I'm just saying that I'll give a show a pass when it is this entertaining, and when terminology consists of things such as "timey-wimey" and "spacey-wacey".  If I want to worry about canon and attempts at hard science, I'll gladly nitpick my favorite episodes of Star Trek.  :)

 "These events should be timelocked.  We shouldn't even be here." ~ David Tennant as 10 in "Day of the Doctor", said in the barn in the desert.

For the sake of argument, if Gallifrey was so out of reach for everybody, then the 13 Doctors and T.A.R.D.I.S.s shouldn't have been able to save it in the first place.  Things like this discussion are why I prefer to think of Doctor Who as more fantasy that science fiction.  I know there are some things in the show which astrophysicists such as Neil DeGrasse Tyson agree with, but then there are things like this which I chalk up to being punched in my emotional gonads...lol...at any rate, it's just darn good storytelling.

In the meantime, I'm for Team Gallifrey...we'll be holding a pep rally in the barn later.

 As for how they got to Gallifrey in the first place...I know how weak this sounds, but Clara IS the Impossible Girl who has actually been inside The Doctor's personal timestream...just sayin'.

 I don't know, man...the Doctor Who wiki says that the barn was near is childhood home, and every other review of this episode says the barn is on Gallifrey.  I don't see why he wouldn't activate The Moment and timelock Gallifrey from the surface of Gallifrey.  If he were timelocked there as well, then he could have saved himself hundreds of years of regret.  He might have assumed he was about to commit temporal suicide.

As for the thing on the bed...I got nothin'...lol.  I would only site the Dream Lord from...was it season 5?  Where 11 and Amy and Rory were trapped in a dream state?  Who knows what can happen when The Doctor's imagination runs away with him?

 I loved it.  I'm really digging how much Clara is moving beyond the realm of eye candy this season.  I've never disliked her, but I don't think she's been a fully developed character until this season.  Up till now it seems like she's been more of a plot device.

 What do we say to Darth?...NOT TODAY.
