We finished up the Doctor Who episodes on Netflix tonight ... and I have a couple of things to say.

A handful of spoilers, some large )

I used to post about TV here all the time, but I really haven't had much to post about lately. I think the last show I watched more than a sporadic episode or two of was ... Agent Carter. In March.

However, the new season of Doctor Who (series eight) is up on Netflix, and that's one of the ones Orion and I like watching together, so we watched the first three episodes tonight. I got the general impression from fannish osmosis that a lot of people didn't like this season, but I absolutely loved it. Actually, I think I had more fun tonight than I have watching the show since Donna left.

Not terribly spoilery; just general rambling about the new Doctor )

So, yeah, the tl;dr is that I'm really enjoying this season and I hope this Doctor sticks around for a while.

I FINALLY posted a new chapter of the Sam and Bucky fall out of a plane into the Canadian wilderness fic. That only took ... four months. /o\ However, I'm writing again! It feels so good! I've been really, really blocked the last month or so -- not that I've written nothing, but I've definitely been stuck in a downward November apathy spiral. My energy levels seem to be coming back up now, though, and I'm hoping to be more productive over the last 3(!!) weeks of the year. And I'm going to try to finish this fic by the end of the year; having reviewed the h/c bingo rules (because of wanting to claim the partial fic I posted, as it was written for a bingo square) I realized that stories have to be complete to count, so I need to finish it for one of the bingos I'm working on!

Speaking of my bingo card, I'm only one square away from a straight-line bingo in a couple of directions, and only two squares away in EVERY direction. Still 11 squares to write if I want a blackout, though ... plus finishing up the "falling" square.

I ran across this fun link via [personal profile] leesa_perrie: Time Lord Name Generator. I got:
You are the Renegade Time Lord known as: The Outcast. Your original Gallifreyan name is Valkothaparquanauarinar, or Valkoth for short. Back on Gallifrey, you led a dull and uninteresting life, working as an Archivist, Third Class – but now, you travel Time and Space in search of adventure! Your Type 62 TARDIS is currently stuck in disguise as a large boulder, and your latest travelling companion is a tough, resourceful, 68-year old grandmother who isn't letting old age stop her seeing the universe.

This sounds rather awesomely appropriate to me, except I would like to be called The Archivist rather than The Outcast; that's much better. :)

Meanwhile, I am so very behind on Christmas stuff. Help! Alert! BEARS! CHRISTMAS BEARS! I finally got all the shopping done (I think); tomorrow I plan to get everything wrapped and packed in boxes. It's at times like this that I consider offloading some family members. (I jest. I love my family. But why must they all live in different states half a continent away?!) I also really wanted to decorate this year and haven't done that yet either. BEARS!!!

New White Collar tomorrow night! Only two episodes to go ... forever. Flist, hold me!

My reaction to the latest episode of Doctor Who is kind of mixed.

Spoilers for Doctor Who 7x05 )

HALP. There's a Who fanfic that I want to recommend to a friend who is watching for the first time and just got to the end of Donna's arc. It's total Donna headcanon for me, and I remember the story very vividly ... except what it was called or who wrote it. *facepalm*

Spoilers for the end of Series 4 and BIG spoilers for the story in question (basically the whole plot - it isn't a long story) )

Does this ring any bells with anyone?

ETA: Also, as [livejournal.com profile] black_raven135 pointed out in comments - does anyone know if there is a Doctor Who ficfinders community? I'm not in the fandom enough to know.


FOUND! (By the author) It is The Road Taken by [personal profile] rheanna. And it is wonderful. :)

So I've finally figured out that I can't talk about this week's episode of Doctor Who without bringing up the spoiler I mentioned I'd run across recently, so I'll make a post all about that instead. (And I'm sorry, because I know full well how hard it is not to click on spoilers, even if you don't want to know! But I need to get this out of my system, I guess.)

Casting spoiler for future eps of Doctor Who, plus some talk about 6x07 )

We're up to episode 5x08, which was where we had to stop last night in order to SLEEP, even though it was a cliffhanger.

Spoilers, plus one spoiler for future events in the season, that I got spoiled on by accident )

Okay, now I've seen the whole thing! Reaction: kind of mixed.

Spoilers! )

ETA: Spoilers for the 5th series trailer have appeared in the comments - sorry, I'm just now getting back to LJ and seeing them! Please proceed with extreme caution if you do not wish to be spoiled. There's nothing other than what was in the BBC trailer plus unfounded speculation, however. *g*

Two Three brief, spoilery thoughts about End of Time, Part I, which we just watched:

Spoilers! )

We haven't seen part 2 yet, so please don't spoil me! We didn't watch the previews (as I'm downloading it now) so I'm totally unspoiled and want to stay that way.
