WHAT. WHAT. WHAT. WHAT.
I THINK MY ENTIRE LIFE JUST EXPLODED INTO TINY LITTLE PIECES OF EVERYTHING THAT IS GOOD IN THE WORLD.
My childhood. IT ALWAYS LED ME TO THE DOCTOR.
I looked this up a while ago. Apparently the writers were HUGE Doctor Who fans…
…AND THEY BASED TOMMY OFF OF THE DOCTOR.
Think about it…always getting up to strange wonderful adventures, a charismatic & whimsical leading character…
And what did Tommy always have with him?
HIS TRUSTY SCREWDRIVER.
OH MY GODCRYING!
THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
OMFG Doctor who reference in Rugrats ?!?! mind fucking blown
TIL I was brainwashed as a child.
So I’ve been doing a lot of blogging lately about Sherlock Holmes. First, I posted about all the incarnations of the character (House, Sherlock, Elementary, ext) and I followed Elementary like a good little member of the new fandom. But, with Elementary’s season over, BBC’s Sherlock still in production and a third Sherlock Holmes movie barely out of the gate I began to feel a void in my life. Then it hit me as I set my DVR to record tonight’s episode of Psych… Psych basically is The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes! Don’t believe me? Read out doubter, read on!
After an intense first season we have finally come to the end. I am kind of relieved the finale is here because this show kills me week after week. Thankfully, the finale really delivered, setting us up for season 2 with a bang… well not really a bang, but… it’s good. I see a lot of awards in this shows future, especially with Farmagia’s powerful performance.
In what has been a bit of a choppy season we are given a season finale that makes it all worth it! My God! Everything from the episode title to the last few seconds was fantastic. Okay, so the tagline is kind of misleading. Even though Moffat has publicly stated that he will soon be revealing the Doctor’s name (which kind of feels like a shark jump considering we are only on Doctor 11 and know there are still more Doctors to come), it turns out he was just dangling a juicy tid-bit in front of whovians faces. Apparently, his name is not the Doctor’s biggest secret, but what we find is mind blowing, insanely puzzling and intensely exciting. There is a secret that is answered however, why the impossible girl Clara Oswald is so impossible, and in true Who fashion I don’t think anybody could have ever figured it out. If you haven’t seen the episode and don’t want to know what happened read no further. At the bottom of this post I have theories about the 50 year special so if you wana glaze over the recap be my guest!
OH CBS! YOU MAKE THURSDAYS WORTH BEING THURSDAY! While tonight’s episode of The Big Bang Theory was wonderfully hilarious (Kunal Nayyar giving us some lovely acting), this Thursday belonged to the 2 hour season finally of Elementary. If there was any doubt this show didn’t hold up the the Sherlock Holmes mega-fandom these two hours have put those naysayers to bed. Now, I am usually the kind of person who makes a keen effort to figure things out for myself, using extensive amounts of time on the internet combined with my connection to the film/tv world. I generally find out what I want to know. And for the life of me I could not figure out who would be playing the infamous Moriarty…. needless to say, tonight’s big reveal caused me to only write “Holy Fuck” in my notes about the episode. So, if you haven’t watched tonight’s episode WARNING READ NO FURTHER! This is not a recap but I give everything away. Please don’t ruin this for yourself.
Oh man! This show knows how to serve up suspense and horror. I am really enjoying how they are giving us a great homage to Hitchcock, because there has been very little blood and gore and yet my heart pounds between commercial breaks. Tonight’s episode was mostly set up for the season finally, but it still delivered a lot of gasps and at least one HUGE “OH MY GOD!” moment.
Ah! Neil! Don’t blink! God I love this man. In what’s been a kind of “bleh” second half of series 7, Gaiman DELIVERS with the scariest version of the cybermen ever. You know how zombies were always kind of scary, but at least you could always run from them… that is, until movies like 28 Days Later and Resident Evil when not only were they terrifying but they were FAST. Now you couldn’t just run from those brain eating fuckers, you have to fight them! Well, until Gaiman came along, the cybermen were slow walking, robot voiced kind of outdated villains But Gaimen lends his genius to the Whoniverse yet again and we get fast, constantly upgrading versions of a old favorite, and they truly become “Nightmares in Silver.”
Woot! Not only was it my beloved CBS Nerd Thurs, but alternate side parking was suspended today! Best Thursday ever! Tonight we got the super exciting, question answering, season finally of Person of Interest, and with Big Bang Theory and Elementary nearly at their season finales the stakes get raised on both shows. No seriously, some interesting shit went down on Big Bang. I know I say it every week, but CBS has created a nearly perfect programming block.
