 Docotr WHO First impressions:

  • An alright episode, not nearly as fun as last week’s.

  • The Alian Casbah was pretty cool, I wanna see more of that

  • I liked the little intro as to how Oswin came to be. Gives the new companion a bit more depth… Even if she’s still as relatable as an ironing board.

  • Granddaughter? First mention in the new WHO?

  • Like that the Doctor is doing the homework on the new companion

  • Ah, another monster of the week episode

  • Liked the Doctors speech at the end


Problems:

Doctor WHO

  • “SHE’S IMPOSSIBLE”  Oh Doctor, how many times have you said that and have been proven horribly wrong

  • The POWAH OF LOVE!

    • I think the power of Metal would be more effective against the giant sun god thing

      • The Whole Leaf thing looks more like a retcon pulled out of a dalek’s ass than anything else.

        • It’s like they were watching the show after they’d sent it out and were like “Oh shi- Time Lord DNA being the bee’s knees all up in this place, we need to find a way to destroy that leaf before we’re forced to acknowledge it.”

  • I guess the one big problem I had was that the TARDIS doesn’t like Oswin but when it came to Billie Piper, it gave her omnipotence over time and space.

  • Was the TARDIS’ translation matrix FKN broken?

  • Still hating on the interior

  • So, the space scooter comes with its own oxygen atmosphere?


GOT First impressions:

  • There we go, there may have been no boobs, but at least we got a good look at where most protagonists are right now.

  • Love the ending “What are you doing with a Stark bitch?!”

  • All I keep thinking is “Man, that cliffhanger is gonna be a biiiiiiiiiitch”\

  • Man, Brienne doesn’t make good decisions

  • As a cello player that intro still gives me full-metal nerd chills

  • Loved the buddy cop action between Brienne of Tarth and the King Slayer \m/

  • Wanted to slap Joffrey in the first 15 minutes


 

GOT Problems:

  • Creepy kid comes along and we’re just supposed to take it?

  • Joffrey isn’t as much of a dick anymore now that he’s being manipulated by Margaery and that kinda makes me angry. Sansa is still the same wimp, though… Good on them there!

    • Well I think that’s the point.  He’s stupid.   But he’s a bit sick in the noggin.  Gotta a bit of a Jeffrey (or should I say Joffrey, do ho ho ho) Dahmer thing going

  • Decided lack of boobs.

  • The whole arrow in the sky “move” thing. Physics do not work that way!

    • It’s like the JFK assassination, there was more than one shooter!

  • No walkers and ot giants
