The Doctor (anim)

Reviews: 11x01 The Woman Who Fell On Earth [Doctor Who]

I’ve been wanting to write a post about the Doctor Who season premiere since the last scene faded into black.

As you might remember, I was not very thrilled about the choice. Well not for the choice itself - even if I didn’t really liked Jodie too much in Broadchurch - but because of the reaction of the fandom to the news of a female Doctor. Some screamed bloody murder, saying that they were done with the show, and some went the opposite way saying that it was something that made history... ahem... it’s a show... a Female President would have made history...

I felt like these people were implying that Doctor Who was a misogynist/sexist show before, when it has never been the case imho...

But I was excited... because a young female Doctor seemed the only possible direction to take... Doctor who evolved into a very dark show somehow... we needed something fresh, a Doctor that can smile and be happy... a positive spin! And Jodie is the right face for it!

[THIS article says it better that I could ever say it]

After 10 minutes of her appearing into my screen I knew SHE WAS THE DOCTOR! She is perfect for the role... I really like her energy and I didn’t feel like she was over acting like she did (imho) in Broadchurch!

Collapse )

Overall I am pretty happy with everything. Really enjoyed the writing. Some quotes were surprisingly good! I am finally excited again about the show... I was not a Moffat’s Fan... I really disliked his attitude in general and I think he was more interested to show how brilliant he was than write a good show! I can’t wait for next week! Welcome back Doctor!

ragnarok_08 asked

1. What is it that drew you into watching Suits in the first place?
A friend of mine started to watch it while she was pregnant and bored... she asked me if I wanted to watch it “with her” (she lives in Italy and back then I was in the US) and I said yes, because I always say yes when someone asks me to watch a show! I really enjoyed it. I usually get annoyed at long pilots, but in found it very interesting and easy to watch...

2. Favorite song right now?
“As the Crow Flies” by Sam Palladio” from the show Nashville. I love the song and I love his voice

3. How is little Christopher doing?
He’s doing great. Thanks for asking... I should make an update with some pictures. He’s 11 months now, and he’s “talking” all the time... he cruises quite well, walk if I hold his hand and soon he’ll be able to do it alone... he’s very good at playing by himself, a good eater (he likes everything and cries when he’s done) I cut his hair the other day and I gave him a very straight fringe LOL!

4. Any weird dreams you remember?
I only have weird dreams, but this one stack with me. I had it right after I got my driver license over 10 years ago: it’s night. I’m driving. It’s a road in the woods and there is no lighting... Suddenly I have to come to a stop. There’s a red barricade in front of me with a post it on it. I get out to read it and it “go back, road exploded” I look down and it’s like someone cut the Earth in 2... clean cut and you can’t see the end on both sides but you can see the road continuing in front of you. I go back in the car and I put it on reverse. But instead of going back I move forward and I start going down. Weals on the wall, going down doe down super fast. I press on my break and I stop. Calmly I make sure to put it on reverse and get back on the road. I make a u turn and I drive back home, like nothing ever happened...

5. Baths or showers?
Showers, because I have no idea how to relax... ahahaha I tried quite hard to sit in a tub for a while but I just can’t... I need to do something while in there! I noticed I am so bad at that that I cannot even have Christopher staying too long in his tub... I keep thinking he might get bored, while instead he’s having a blast...


monkiainen asked:

1. Apart from Doctor Who, what is your favourite TV show/movie featuring David Tennant? Why that particular TV show/movie?
Oh so many... it is a very difficult question because I watched EVERYTHING he worked on. Seriously, take his IMDb page and I saw it all (except when he’s the narrator or only a voice... I miss a couple of these because I am not into documentaries... but I watch Ducktales because of him lol) I think in Recovery he was amazing... Secret Smile was a very good one too... loved him in Casanova (bbc 3 episodes)... and he was brilliant in Einstein and Eddington... I’d say Hamlet... I saw it live (and I met him for the first time at the stage door) and I saw it on DVD so many times... :) he was fantastic! Uh he was also so goon in Single Father!!!!!!!! I CAN’T!!!!!

2. What is your favourite thing about fall?
We don’t really have fall here in South Georgia... it’s still very warm... but when I was living in Italy I loved to be able to wear big sweaters, skinny jeans and uggs boots!!! Loved the colors and the crisp hair... but the thing I love the most now it’s the season of my baby boy’s birthday!

3. The best thing that happened today?
Nothing... Ahahaha I was packing and Christopher was not helping... kept calling me non stop and he was extra needy... but now the house is spotless and I can leave for Pennsylvania tomorrow morning right after breakfast!

4. What was your favourite toy as a child?
A karaoke machine... it was also a very good one, not one for kids! Gosh I loved that thing!

5. What made you cry?
Last time I cried it was a couple of evenings ago because I was watching the final episode of the Office and I got emotional... I now cry a lot when I see tv episodes about babies... I guess I worry something like that might happen to Chris... o don’t cry much in real life, except when I have to leave my husband (or he leaves) for a while.


And last but not least carbonpaper

1. What country would you love to visit?
Australia! I think right now it’s on the top of my list!

2. What do you like most and least about living in the United States?
I like that everything is open all the time... I don’t like living here while that guy is the president!

3. What do you get the most homesick for in Italy?
The 3 Fs: family, friends and food!!!

4. What is your favorite episode of Doctor Who? Least favorite?
Favorite: 4x10 Midnight. It was a great standalone episode! Also 5x10 Vincent and the Doctor... it’s a tie! (I am not mentioning every double finale that RTD wrote... because I love them all!)
Least Favorite: Moffat is a blur at the moment but it was definitely one of the episodes he wrote... not with Capaldi because I loved Capaldi too much... so one with Eleven and Clara (bacause the Ponds were awesome)

5. Are you teaching Chris to be bilingual?
Yes. I am trying... if Eric was here it would be easier because I would talk only Italian to him, while Eric would speak to him in English. So he would be able to recognize the language associated to the person and make it easier for him. But I have to do both in order to expose him to both so, I hope I won’t make a mess... I just think it would be good for him to know both!

tv post: everything sucks (netflix)

I guess we had to expect this... After all these nostalgia shows about the 80es, deep down we knew that the 90es were next...

Even if I didn't spend my high school years in the 90es (I started highschool in 2000), and I was not in the US back then, I remember all of it: the amazing music, the crazy and free hair styles, the clothes, the CD player that was always skipping when you were moving, the 56k dial-up internet connection and its never ending sound,...

I can realte with all of it and it feels good, but at the same time not so good because soon, in a couple of years, we'll havea  series about the kids in the '00 and that makes me feel so old already!

Anyway I highly recommend this show because it's quite cute. Here a series of things I liked about it

- Netflix know how to cast! There are no doubts! No 30 years old pretending to be 16, no state of the art make up and hair, no super hot teachers or moms that wake up amazing even if they have kids and a job (I am looking at you Bad Mom Movies even if I love you Kirsten Bell) or fathers that have the time to work out and proudly carry around a six pack (and I am not talking about beer)... Normal people... I just love it!

- The music was so good back then! I forgot how good it was and all the songs they mentioned and listened to are stuck in my brain now

- The storyline, even if it's simple, it's good. Collapse )

- I loved the "We're all the heroes of our own story. Without even realizing, we're probably the bad guy in someone else's." theme that keeps coming up!

- Did I mentioned the music? LOL

If you want to give it a go it's just 10 episode (25-30 minutes each). If you decide to check it out or you did it already, let me know in the comments!
