Quote from: trdsf on January 14, 2015, 09:54:52 PMThat's the great thing about the show, there's pretty much a Doctor for everyone. I think Capaldi has great potential... but he hasn't lived up to it yet. That's more an issue with the scripts than it is the performer -- the scripting was why I came to dislike the Tennant era, not the actor.I'd like to see the show return to its old system of having a producer and a separate script editor. We know Moff and Mark Gatiss work well together (Exhibit A: Sherlock) -- that might be a solution.
Quote from: Hydra009 on January 15, 2015, 01:27:57 AMI liked David Tennant slightly more than Matt Smith. But Matt Smith really grew on me. I loved seeing them onscreen together.
Quote from: Hydra009 on December 21, 2014, 01:52:00 AMAnd what's more, the Cybermen make their grand return. I've always liked them. They're very dispassionate and no-nonsense villains. They destroy and assimilate. They can curbstomp any army on the world and they're hilariously logical and matter-of-fact. They're not too bright, but that doesn't matter when they have a good leader. There's just so much about them that's strangely likeable rather than horrifying. Sign me up for an upgrade! *cranks up The Lion Sleeps Tonight and takes his place in the queue, marching in time with the song*
Quote from: Jutter on September 08, 2014, 03:59:32 PMBreaking Bad lives up to the hype. Great series. Best dramady I've seen since St Elsewhere.
Quote from: wolf39us on January 15, 2015, 10:22:44 AMThis show was absolutely amazing. I would recommend to anyone!
QuoteI really liked SG-1 and Atlantis, too. The funny thing is, I snubbed SG-1 for years because it seemed like low-budget crap for its first few seasons. I think it was season 4 that I finally got into it. I also thought the premise was a bit odd. I mean, millions of people worshiping someone posing as a divine being and turning hostile the moment you speak against their belief? Where do they come up with this stuff!Atlantis was much better show, imho. Less budget problems, a fresh setting, a more regular cast (looking at you, Michael Shanks) and Canadian know-how. :P
Quote from: Shiranu on January 15, 2015, 02:34:53 PMI'm just going to throw it out that I really did not care for Breaking Bad... it was okay, but way over hyped. To each their own.
Quote from: SGOS on January 15, 2015, 02:45:58 PMYou've got aliens with advanced technology like space ships and advanced weapons (but no aiming devices), and most of the time, they are living in tents and wearing animals skins and burlap with iron breast plates. Huh? I think what makes these incongruities tolerable is that the writing and the cast don't make any pretense at taking the whole thing seriously.
QuoteSG1 ran for 10 years, and while it was on, I never watched it. I missed SG Atlantis, too. I think I knew about them, but never bothered watching. Atlantis has more polish and higher production values. The Wraith that feed on humans are bit over the top for aliens, but the writers create interesting scenarios with them and thereby do a good job of salvaging something that tests the limits of believability.
