Eleven and I have had a very uneven relationship. I was so in love with Ten it has taken me a while to warm up to this new Doctor. I've been watching the new series, but that's about it. I still love Doctor Who, but David is still MY doctor and these last two series haven't really interested me too much. But after watching The Doctor's Wife I had to comment. That was quite possibly one of the best Doctor Who episodes EVER. Brilliant concept, brilliant acting, and brilliant sets. Spoilers...Collapse )

So lately I've embarked upon the great Harry Potter re-read project. Also accompanied by the Harry Potter movie catch-up project, which are being watched in conjuction with the books. So I'm about half way through Goblet of Fire right now. But after I finished Prisoner of Azkaban and watched the movie I was struck by the memory of why I so loved that one. It was because of Lupin. Remus John Lupin was one of the best Harry Potter characters ever. He was the perfect father figure for Harry at just the right time. He provided guidance, caring, discipline, and most importantly, a link to his parents. And it just so happens he was also a werewolf. But really, the werewolf thing was minor, he was also the best defense against the dark arts teacher Hogwarts ever had...he was so good with the children. It was such a shame that he couldn't keep his job for longer. It was all Snape's fault, of course. Anyway, I've been looking at YouTube vids that honor the great Professor Lupin and I've come across a few to post here.

Also, RIP Lis Sladen.

I've been back from my vacation for almost two weeks now, but for ten blissful days I was on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. It was wonderful. I never thought I'd like Hawaii, but I ended up absolutely loving it. Here are just a few pics of the beauty of the island.

I should be going to bed right now, but instead I wanted to quickly post about how awesomely epic the first two Merlin episodes have been. I have loved every funny, dramatic, brooding, mad, magical plot point. Evil Morgana will be much more interesting than the insipid damsel in distress we had to work with last season. And here's hoping she will eventually find out Merlin's secret. This show is getting better and better with every season. I'm so happy we have it back again.

And here to prove how good it is are some equally awesome fanvids.

Just taking time out to pimp a new community that I've created. It's called disneyland_potd  and it's a "Photo of the Day" community focused on the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. Join me for a daily dose of the Happiest Place on Earth. :)

It's definitely getting harder to keep up with this TV meme thing. We'll see how long I last. But for now, here we go again.

Day 08 - A show everyone should watch - I don't know about this one. No one in my rl circle has ever really liked the same shows I do and I've never been one to impose my views on others. To be honest, aside from the Doctor Who figure on my desk, I don't think I've ever said anything to anyone about liking the show...except my family. And it's just understood they  don't watch the same shows I do. So I don't have an answer for this. If I had to choose I'd say Doctor Who, but now I'd have to say just watch the old eps, not Eleven.

Day 09 - Best scene ever - This is hard. There are so many to choose from. And so many that I really love. I'm going to cheat and post a video I made a while back compiling my favorite scenes from the Tenth Doctor's time. As well as a few more memorable ones from The End of Time between Dr/Master & Dr/Wilf. And then there's one from Highlander tacked on for good measure.

Favorite scenes from New Who & Highlander under the cut...Collapse )

Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving - Doctor Who and Highlander both I resisted watching in the beginning and ended up loving.

Day 11 - A show that disappointed you - Lost. 'Nuff said.

I mentioned recently to a1cmustangpilot  that I had a kitten named Stitch and it started me thinking...I haven't posted any pictures of my little bundle of joy since Christmas time when he literally was just a baby. He's now 9 or 10 months old (I'm not sure what month he was born) and totally has me wrapped around his rather large paw. My baby isn't a baby anymore, but he's still precious, and cute, and he still likes to cuddle occasionally. But most important of all, he's still my little baby boy. The love of a pet is one of the greatest gifts you can have, and taking in this stray kitten and his mama has really shown me what a blessing helping animals can be. And so...here's a self-indulgent picspam of my Stitch kitten.

 
These are the latest pics of him. I call the first one the innocent, "What? I didn't do anything" look.

Here I am again with a few more answers to the TV Meme. 

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite TV show
- This is pretty easy. It's been my favorite episode of New Who for a while now and I can't think of any episode of any other TV show that tops it in my mind at the moment. Sound of Drums...Master, Doctor, Jack, Gallifrey, and the infamous phone call...so much to love.



Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite TV show - Again, this one is easy. The 2nd Series Doctor Who episode Love and Monsters. Hated it. By far the worst Doctor Lite episode of New Who to date. The only redeeming moment of the show...and basically the only bit where the Doctor and Rose actually make an appearance, was this one:
