thirty2flavors: (the oncoming storm)
[personal profile] thirty2flavors

I love this show sfm for the record. I'm sure you probably didn't notice, but I do.

I said I'd recap my post-trailer poll, so here's the final tally:

Things We Predicted That Did, In Fact, Occur:
Ten licked something! -- as predicted by 18 (56.5%) of you
Somehow, all of Earth was in danger! -- as predicted by 11 (34.4%) of you
HER NAME WAS DONNA -- as predicted by 11 (34.4%) of you

Things We Predicted That Sort-Of Came True:
Ten and Gwen III Christina did kiss, though Christina was the instigator this time which wasn't implied by the poll. A whole 25 (78.1%) of us saw this coming
Gwen III Christina did offer to travel with the Doctor (78.1%), but not before her untimely death

Things That Didn't, To The Shock of the World:
Actually, most people survived, including Christina.
Dramatic Black Lady was not eaten by a stingray as predicted by a whole whopping 87.5% of us -- she lives to be dramatic and foreshadow-y another day.
No one glowed, was secretly evil, or was a particularly assholeish rich person.
There was no conclusive evidence that the Daleks did it. But probably they did. Because of the Time War.

Anyway, in more general news:

TEN SONICS HIS MOTHERFUCKING GLASSES OH MY GOD that was probably my favourite part ngl, just ask [livejournal.com profile] sweetcherrytree

Christina was kind of very annoying, all of her lines felt like really lame action movies. She reminded me of the movie The Avengers and I haven't even seen that since I was like 8. I'm excited for the Christmas specials when we will get a companion who doesn't want to bone the Doctor. I know he is slim and a little bit foxy, but omg. Just sayin'.

I did, however, REALLY enjoy the Fly People. Anything that requires Ten to speak alien is A+, and they entertained me. I was sad that they died because I liked them more than any of the human cast, ngl.

The entire fangirling phonecall with UNIT was awesome. Also, 'sup UNIT lady from parallel universe, how you doin'? Also also, I like how UNIT is a multi-purpose "are they good? are they bad?" organisation. BRB TORTURIN' TOSH FOR NO REASON OWAIT HELPING THE DOCTOR SAVE THE UNIVERSE OWAIT SCREW THE DOCTOR LET'S CLOSE THE WORMHOLE OWAIT SAVIN' UR ASSES FROM A GIANT SHOOTY SPIDER STAR. Whatevs UNIT, whatevs.

I liked Ten's blatant refusal to take ~Lady Christina~ with him. We've seen him refuse people before but usually his reasoning was secretly "you are not young or hot enough" (hello VOTD) instead of "I NEED TO BE ALONE WITH MY SNOW PATROL OKAY". I like the latter better. ALSO, DONNA REFERENCE FTMFW. Donnnaaaa D:

As for the Oodlike ~your song must end soon~ -- well, we knew that. And I knew the Master was coming back too, but I was still quite delighted by it. HE WILL KNOCK FOUR TIMES. HE IS RETURNING. THERE IS SOMETHING ON YOUR BACK. BADWOLFTORCHWOODHAROLDSAXON. I love this show's foreshadowing, it's fun.

I am totally disinterested in Waters of Mars, though. CHRISTMAS SPECIALS NOW PLZ OMG.

Christina/Companion du Jour calls him Spaceman and he does his Pensive Quiet Emo Face we saw so much of in s3 and says (something like) "I had a friend who used to call me that." D'aww.

Haha the Master is bamf, trufax.

Oh, Ten and his emo. Sometimes he needs to be slapped and told that it's his own fault.

If he angsts over Donna I can accept that, because even if he didn't play God and steal her memories she'd still have died, so he'd be alone either way. But I definitely rolled my eyes at the "or they find someone else" in TND regarding Rose and Handy. IF BY "FIND SOMEONE ELSE" YOU MEAN YOU ABANDON THEM WITH SOMEONE ELSE, THEN YES! lol it's like Susan and Whatshisface.

I LOVE UNIT SO SO SO SO MUCH. Especially their Doctor fangirling and berets and nuclear world explodingness.

This episode was pretty much everything I wanted and more plus extra with flying bus win on top

UNIT is so comically awesome. BLACK UNIT LADY OBVS DOESN'T REMEMBER FROM TURN LEFT HOW FUCKED THEY ARE WITHOUT THE DOCTOR, or she would not ahve suggested that shit.

OMG FLYING BUS WIN INDEED. When DBL was like ~ I HEAR THE VOIES OF THE DEAD~ I was like IT'S THE VEIL and then when the bus started flying kelly was like "liz said it was like the knight bus"

I kept hoping that she would make some veiled reference to Rose. But I guess that it was the alt!version of her so she wouldn't remember Rose.

LIRL YES IT MADE ME THINK OF THE KNIGHT BUS AND I LOL-D AND THEN I SIGHED WITH FONDNESS FOR POA AND THEN I WAS LIKE OMG THEY'RE FLYING A BUS OUT OF THE TUNNEL

and that was about as conherent as it got

I was talking to Kelly the wole time and my reactions were all just "lol ___". Like "lol skeleton" "lol wormhole" "lol fly people". The only thing that got a huge reaction out of me was "OMFG HE JUST CHANGED HIS OMFG OMFG LIRL LIRL LIRL LIRL "re: sonicing his motherfucking glasses. Fuck yeah, suave-ass motherfucker. I knew they looked just like his glasses only tinted.

Also, aside from the OHWOMANIZEROHYOU'REAWOMANIZERBABY tone of it, I really liked the line "you look Time Lord". because I had never thought of it like taht either. PWNED WITH LOGIC, Gwen III.

My roommate and I watched this a couple of hours ago and I've been carefully processing my thoughts, but I have been too lazy to make my own post... so I'm just going to comment on yours.

Gwen III was annnnooooying, but I will say that at least she wasn't entirely stupid. *coughAstridcough* I respect a woman who carries a wench in her backpack. I also love how Ten powned her by flatly refusing her offer to travel with him. THAT WAS AWESOME. I would have liked her a lot more, if they would have cut down the overt sexual references. Christ on a bike, there weren't even that many awkward sexual moments when he was cavorting with Rose, and he was in frickin' love with her. It was all just a little much. I'm tired of the kissing, its not even interesting kissing, its not like it has any emotion behind. We all know that everyone wants to snog the Doctor, but srs. not everyone has too and I certainly don't want to watch everyone do it.

Fly people were major WIN. I too love it when Ten speaks in gargled syllables and clicks.

SONIC TRANSITION LENSES WAVE OF THE FUTURE.

UNIT is totally turning into some lame version of Torchwood with red berets. Why do they have to shoot at everything? I now understand why the Doctor hates guns so much. They are loud and unoriginal and serve very little purpose (besides the obvious purpose of shooting metal sting rays)

I liked the physic lady. I liked her ominous warning. It was neat. And I like the Master. I wonder what he's going to knock on.

And Waters of Mars looks dumb, but I'm interested in seeing some people shoot geysers of water from their wrists. And do I see a blue suit in those previews? I didn't think they would do that. It must be a spare.

Yeah Astrid was too brigth-eyed OMG SHOW ME THE UNIVERSE DOCTAH but Gwen III was too I AM SO BADASS LOL I AM A LADY LOL I STEAL THINGS FOR KICKS LOL I'M FLYING THE KNIGHT BUS!!! I liked that Ten was like "no gtfo". Aside from disliking her, I like the idea that he's emotionally fucked up enough to be back at his "I TRAVEL ALONE :|" thing. Especially since we know it lasts this time.

I know, the kissing is boring because no one cares.

OMG THERE WAS A LINE THAT WAS LIKE "I CAN'T BELIEVE IT, GUNS DOn"T WORK!" rofl I c wut ur doin, RTD

I like ominous foreshadowing, it's fun. Plus, THE MASTER. WIN.

Yeah I just wanna skip to the regen specials.

I am glad that you thought 200 was the Knight Bus as well. I might have yelled something like OMG HARRY POTTER CROSSOVER loudly, when the bus started to fly.

I too enjoy angsty 'I don't need you or anyone or anything or anywhere because I'm a Time Lord' Ten.

Actually, Knight Bus credit goes to [livejournal.com profile] bazcat89. But when Lady could hear the whipsering of the dead I went 'IT'S THE VEIL!" So.

I too enjoy angsty 'I don't need you or anyone or anything or anywhere because I'm a Time Lord' Ten.
It is probably twisted of me to enjoy his screwed up psyche, but I like the way RTD doesn't gloss over significant losses like Rose and Donna, that we get to see him actually grieve. Having said that, the way you phrased that is awesoe, and totally makes me imagine him like a runaway teenager. I DON'T NEED YOU!!! I'LL MAKE MY OWN RULES!!! I'LL MAKE MONEY WITH MY GUITAR JUST YOU WAIT!!

She was lame so I'm glad she's gone. But in general I liked the special well enough, if only because it got me excited for the Christmas specials omgomgomgomgomg.

The TV guide? And rose too apparently. IDK
there's a theory that to regenerate ten'll need Handy and Donna and that martha is there to "ease the transition" between 10 and 11? IDK

Hmmm I hope that's just the companionpalooza rumour going around and doesn't actually end up being true. I love Rose btu I don't want her back. I can maybe accept it provided she shows up with Handy and she and Handy are totally kickass, btu really I'd rather she just stayed in Pete's World. Her story is done.

Martha coming back would be cool though, and I AM SO EXCITED FOR DONNA.

Haha I didn't either, but I didn't hate her enough for her to ruin it for me. I was just like LA LA SO GLAD YOU AREN'T STICKING AROUND :D

YES to everything above (I'm going to have to see the episode once more for better nitpicking).

Lady Croft Cassandra was Mary Sueish, but I didn't mind it so much (because this ALWAYS happens in specials). I chose to ignore most parts of it and focus on the good stuff. I now have an irrational love for geeky mad scientists with huge ears. I LOVED Erisa Magumbo and her berets. Also dramatic black lady was so dramatic, no one will ever stand a chance against her.

NGHNGH THE MASTER IS COMING BACK?! :D :D :D I did not know this, but I did see some spoiler-pics (unfortunately) and they left me sort of disappointed, IDK.

OMG LADY CROFT LOL YOU'RE SO RIGHT HOW DID I NOT SEE THAT LIRLLLL

Yeah she was a huge Sue. I didn't like her, but I didn't hate her enugh for it to ruin anything. Mostly because I knew she didn't stick around, so I was like WUTEV. Aw Malcolm was endearing hehehe.

Magumbo was a bamf, actually. Plus she wasi n Turn Left and everything in Turn Left is made of 100% win so she must be as well.

YES. YES HE IS. He's the one Dramatic Black Lady foreshadows at the end of the special! KNOCK FOUR TIMES, MAN. And the background music is drums. Teehee I love this show's foreshadowing, it's so delightful.

Oh dear. None of the spoilers I've heard have disappointed me so far but I'm trying to stop looking them up.

I MEANT CHRISTINA. U FAIL FOR NOT BEING IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO REMEMBER, YOUR LADYSHIP.

Anyway I have now re-watched it and I'm still not as annoyed by her as you lot, simply because I couldn't care less about the character (and I still think Ryan is too prettiful to hate). Mostly I just see her attempts at seducing the Doctor very amusing, like a kid who's in love with the boyfriend of her big sister.

I kind of got the feeling like The Doctor sees her as some sort of protégé that he'd encourage to be brilliant but in the end doesn't take all that seriously. In my personal canon, if she were to stick around longer, he'd be impressed by her because she's intelligent but in the end too annoyed by her aristocracy to ever be attached to her.

I dunno I kind of liked that she was snobbish, loved herself and thought she was the bee's knees, because that's what a rich brat is like. Also she'd never have the stones to face the Master or an entire fleet of Daleks...

I would be very much more interested in Christina if she were a lesbian tbh. We've had the gay men, what about the gay women? It'd be awesome for Ten to expect a kiss, and for the Sue in question to go all "No thanks Skinny, I like 'em curvy and of the same sex".
HAHA! How did I manage to think of all of this from one special?

Oh those were drums? I thought they were double heart-beats (which I guess would serve the same purpose or you know imply something Ten2/Donna). Although we know Donna is in, I hope Ten2 isn't because it'd be weird if he was and not Rose and we're kind of done with her story aren't we?

Well again I clicked on a link by accident and there's a person in the specials that I do not like. *shrug* Kind of made me a little sad.
