Merlin, Torchwood, Doctor Who – Oh BBC, I love you!
I’ve stepped back outside the misguided folklore and have swallowed the amounts of stuff that has been shoveled at me – hell, I even attempted to compare it to Legend of the Seeker (which it is not) but I keep coming to the same conclusion – it’s just not that good.
I know that the Brits watch TV much different than we do. Their seasons are much, much shorter and there aren’t nearly as many stations to watch… but that just doesn’t change it for me.
I’m sorry. I had hoped for more.
But every episode it pretty much the same. OH NO! SOMETHINGS WRONG! AND IT INVOLVES MAGIC!
BUT MAGIC IS AGAINST THE LAW! and on and on and on… I’m done and moving on. Which is nice since Sunday has become inundated with shows (True Blood, Hung and Entourage <- I should blog about that one, huh? We’ll see.)
Torchwood is back tonight with the beginning of the long awaited mini-season entitled “Children of Earth.”
I’ve heard that this may be the end for Torchwood, but one can still hope for more!
I’ll probably have more starting Wednesday on this! I’m almost done with last season, which I would like to do before watching Children of Earth!
But incase I don’t make it – I promise to recap everything come Sunday!
A few weeks back they aired last years Christmas special and it was really good. David Morrissey guest starred as a man trapped in mid-1800 England who thinks that he is the Doctor.
At first the Doctor, OUR Doctor, thinks he may have met a later incarnation of himself but comes to realize that the Cybermen have invaded the planet and when attempting to save his family “the next Doctor” accidently imprinted himself with the information about all the past 10 doctors and then assumed their life.
If you haven’t had a chance to watch it, well, that just makes me sad! GO TO BBC AMERICA RIGHT NOW!
And make sure to watch Planet of the Dead on Sunday! (or at least set your dvr for the love of god…) Now enjoy the trailer!
